We moved to a new suburb where there is no daycare centre within ~3km from our house. There are 2 but have no vacancies for next few months.
I can drive but my partner can't. So if I choose to drive him to the nearest daycare centre, its not feasible for me to pick up and drop off daily due to work timings.
We have a 3yo hyperactive toddler who goes to his current daycare 5 days a week and we need to send him there until we find an alternative in the new suburb. So we take him with us on the train, my partner gets off after 30mins and drops him to the daycare.
Now the challenge for us is to handle him for 30 mins on the train. He gets cranky, wants to play in every possible section of the train and hardly sits quiet for 5 mins.
How can we keep him occupied and quiet? Ita sometimes embarrassing when everyone on the train gives you hard looks. Any suggestions and experiences? I haven't considered the option of letting him e-play on an ipad yet.
