So we recently flew to the East Coast and back with our toddler. This is a big deal since we now have to pay for his seat and he can finally collect air miles! Although it is annoying that the price of his seat is the same as an adult. But that’s another blog post.
Anyhoo, if you’ve ever flown with children, you know how annoying lugging around a car seat is through the airport while wrangling your child and hand carry (no matter how light your try to pack). Thankfully we bought a CARES Harness, because lets face it–that lap belt barely keeps an adult in their seat, let alone a small child. The CARES Harness was really easy to install, doesn’t take up room in a hand carry (it fit easily in my purse), is super light, and most importantly it is FAA approved! My toddler didn’t mind either–to him it was like putting him in his car seat. My one complaint about the contraption is that my son ended up sliding through the bottom since there’s no fastner in the crotch area to keep him up-right. Otherwise we were really happy with it. So if you are flying with your youngster any time soon, I highly recommend getting this product!!!
