Flying With Kids – Why you should take your car seat when you travel with children
Do you really need to take the seat car with you?
In a word, yes.
Think what States-site FAA Flight with Children ", FAA strongly urges parents and guardians for children in an appropriate restraint based weight and size. Keeping a child in a child restraint system or a device of the system during the flight is the smart thing and the right to do. "
Use the car seat your child is already comfortable with the children involved in. Flying many changes and disruptions … you can help them be as comfortable as possible by making the familiar car seat. Travel Fun = Happy Child
Yeah, but I have to buy an extra ticket
Ask yourself if you really want your child on your lap throughout the flight. Days count on an empty seat is gone. In their attempt to stay financially afloat, the airlines are eliminating routes and try maximize the number of passengers on each flight.
TIP: Ask your airline for a discounted rate when you travel with children. Many airlines now offer discounts of up to 50 percent for children under two years.
Seating Self unknown AND LEASING
If you decide to leave the child seat in the house, what will you use at your destination? Get a car seat of a rental car can be a problem. Cleanliness is often a problem
– It is difficult to know if you have the seat of the car rental agency installed and adjusted properly – Confirm, confirm, confirm your seat reservation child with the car rental agency
TIP: If you do not want to rent a child seat with a rental car or need to rent other types of baby equipment, there are many companies hire baby equipment, you can find Internet.
Some of you have heard of concerns: aviation system child restraint. It is the harness never approved by the FAA. It weighs about a pound and is essentially a small harness that uses the child while in the seat the aircraft (not to be confused with the withholding of tower type of harness is not recommended by the FAA). CARES is a good product, but … your child will still need their own airplane seat and one seat for the driver to arrive. Some parents take CARES board for the seat of the plane verify that the car seat baggage. But that still requires carrying the seat at the airport and put in some type of protective bag / case to keep it clean and intact. I much prefer having my children in their own car seats to see the plan, especially more than I have to buy the CARES and a protective bag for the control of the seat as luggage.
Use a carrier SEAT
My preferred method for taking the car seat when traveling with children is to use a backpack-style car seat support.
