Travelling with infant/baby
Posted 14 November 2009 - 02:44 AM
As for the ground transportation, he said of course to bring the car seat since we will need it. And he said the same that they check it at the door when you are getting on the plane at the stroller check and get it back when we land. I am afraid of it getting lost in regular luggage check though after what happened to FI's luggage when returning home the Summer before last as it was lost; I have also read in this forum that the airline we are flying with (Air Jamaica) has issues with losing people's luggage. I would hate to lose her carseat esp if it can be prevented so I'd rather use the stroller check. I also intend on bringing her stroller.
Good tip on the whole sucking thing, I would've never known or thought of that. I'm a first time Mother : }

Maureens advice is right on the mark!
I also always highly recommend that even for infants that you pay in full and guarantee them a seat on the plane. Mostly for their own safety- I can not imagine if something were to happen (turbulance, an accident) and the child was injured or died how incredibly bad the parent would feel because they "saved" 500.00 ! Also it just makes travel easier when the baby can have a bit of their own space!
It's my own personal issue though and many feel that I overreact but ......I've heard a few stories and as a Mom I never would be able to live with myself! When my kids were that little I always bought a seat.
I also want to mention that even if you've already paid in full you may be able to still upgrade your transfers directly with the TA.

PROS: offers sun protection w/ canopy top, offers more comfort for baby, cup holders, top & bottom storage compartments, baby does better in this one (doesn't try to escape from it!), size/space usage doesn't matter for our airline & they do not charge for gate-checking the item
CONS: large, bulky size takes up space
Maybe some other moms/parents/observers have some insight to this one...?
