Flying with a car seat is not fun. And since the car seats that come with rental cars are usually filthy or unsafe (or both!) your best bet truly is to rent one from a baby travel equipment company that will greet you at the airport with a shiny, clean, and safe seat. But you still have to keep your little one safe on the plane…
Enter the CARES Child Aviation Restraint System. It attaches to the seat and existing aircraft seat belt to create a 5-point harness to keep your 22-44lb child safe and secure in their own airplane seat. The CARES harness is the only device of its kind that is approved for use by the FAA. You might want to print that info out when you fly with it, though. I’ve heard of situations where flight attendants tried to restrict its use.
The lovely folks at Kids Fly Safe have provided a CARES Harness to give away to a Have Baby Will Travel reader!
