Again, I’m no expert but here’s my plan. If you have experience with this, please weigh in!
We have a Britax Boulevard and a Graco Snugride – both are FAA approved.
The labeling must say “This child restraint system conforms to all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards” and “This Restraint is Certified for Use in Motor Vehicles and Aircraft,” in red lettering. (http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC%20120-87B.pdf)
For more info on travel safety see the FAA brochure here.
How to get these through airports? The boys will be in the carseats as much as we can possibly keep them. We have a GoGo Babiez Kidz Travelmate for Jack Jr’s seat, and a stroller frame for the Graco seat.
We are checking our beloved Bob Duallie, and saying our prayers that it survives okay. We are also checking our ancient hand-me-down pack-n-play for the little to use until our shipment arrives with his crib. Not very comfy, but what can you do.
My ergo baby carrier. I like that thing… If baby gets restless I can always parade him around in the carrier – he seems to find that soothing.
Next time, I’ll show you my diaper bags.
