Do You Strap Your Baby In on the Plane?
Filed under: In The News
USA Today reports that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is pushing for parents to put flying babies in a car seat, rather than in mom and dad's lap, because they have been unable to convince the Federal Aviation Administration to make the strapping mandatory.
"If we are so careful to strap our children into car seats when we drive to the airport, then why are we not as diligent in securing them in a seat of their own on the aircraft?" NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman says to USA Today.
This means buying your baby a seat of their own, which increases the cost of flying by air.
What do you think? Do you strap your baby in on the plane? Or just put him in your lap?
