So we’re I’m finishing up packing. The dining room table has become my “packing zone” thus we will be eating on our laps tonight. There’s a buzz in the air that’s ringing with excitement. I call it the “traveling buzz”. Oh how I love the traveling buzz…the night before we head out I usually stay up late finishing up last minute things. I have a feeling, the way it’s looking, tonight my late goings on will involve putting away all of the clean clothes that I washed today (holy cow we had a lot of laundry…it kept multiplying as I washed, I swear) and loading the dishwasher for one last sweep of our dishes. And ya know, I won’t mind being up until midnight doing it all because well, the “travel buzz” will be in the air.
More than likely you will be reading this when I am on the plane tomorrow (err, I mean today…We leave on Tuesday, I’m writing this on Monday nigh) And since I can’t be online for most of the day today, I thought, “let’s do a poll!”
So here goes…
Question: When you travel on the plane with a child that’s still in a car seat and is physically able to sit on their own in the plane seat, do you use their car seat on the plane or let them sit in the seat without a car seat? Or maybe you use another device like C.A.R.E.S.
Let’s chat about it…do you think that kids should always be in a car seat when flying? Are you cool with your little one going on as a lap child when they are under 2?
We’ve done it both ways actually.
I know this can be heated so let’s be nice. Ready, set, take.the.poll!
