How to Install a Car Seat on a Plane | Baby Travel


Hi. I’m Jennifer Durbin, and I’m here with some
tips for you on how to install your car seat on an airplane. Now before you travel with a car seat, keep
in mind that you can always check it. Grab yourself a little gate check bag, leave
it at the plane, and don’t worry about it. That way you can save yourself some money
on the extra seat for the baby, because even the little ones under the age of two fly free,
that’s only if they are sitting in your lap. However, there are some tremendous benefits
to flying with a car seat. You have an extra seat which gives you much
more wiggle room, the baby’s comfortable, they’re more likely to sleep better if they’re
comfortable in their car seat, and you can go things like attach your little Pully Pals,
so that they can have hours of fun playing with all of their toys. So once you get on the plane, and make sure
you are one of the first to board, because you’ll have a lot of stuff to carry with you,
get situated in your seat. You’ll probably want to put the car seat in
the seat next to the window. That way, no one is having to climb over the
car seat during the flight. So make sure you properly install your car
seat. It doesn’t hurt to bring the owner’s manual
with you so you can refer to the instructions. When you’re turning the car seat around, and
installing it with the seat belt, if the seat belt isn’t long enough, simply ask the flight
attendant for a seat belt extension. That will do the trick, and make sure the
car seat is properly installed and super secure for takeoff and landing. Once you get the baby situated in the car
seat, then you can do everything else to get them comfortable. Attach your Pully Pal, make sure they have
their pacifier handy, and get ready for a wonderful ride.

  1. That's awful. Do Not advise people to not take a carseat on the plane. If you have an infant, you need to bring your carseat to keep them safe. Just the same as in your car.

  2. Correct title would have been: how to bring an infant on a flight. This video has nothing to do with how to install a car seat on a plane.

  3. Really Jennifer! How about how to buckle It in, do I need my base, which way does it face. You didn’t answer any of these questions.
