Pamela, member of Team FM among other things, has this travel tip:
I got my 1 year old baby headphones from Kidz Gear (review here) and converted his baby sign language and Baby Einstein DVDs into an iPod-ready format with AVS Video Converter. It's fantastic to keep him occupied on plane rides, especially at the beginning when everyone is boarding and he just wants to crawl/walk around. I think it helps that he knows and loves these particular DVDs. The bonus is the amazed stares from other passengers, who certainly know you're pulling out all the stops to keep the kid from crying.
This isn't the first time the Video iPod has appeared on Parent Hacks. Oh no it isn't.
