It's done. We're flying. I am most pleased with how much we paid, and how little time I will have to keep Little Man miserably in his infant carrier. Fantastic.
So now I can start making "The Lists." I have 7 separate lists going on right now. What I need to buy before we go, What we need to buy when we get there, what to pack in each of our carryons, what we're going to check, etc.
But I have a question to all you who fly with children:
How strict are they about kids being in "CRS" devices? The girls don't sit in a 5 point harness carseat anymore. The ones we have say "not for aviation." The TSA site recommends kids 20-40 lbs. be in a huge carseat or extremely expensive strapping device. I'm hoping this is merely a "suggestion" rather than a "rule." My kids are supposed to be over 40 lbs. by now... but they're tiny kids. So we're lucky if they're even 30 lbs. yet.
I figure since they let little babies sit in your lap, then they would let the twins just use a regular lap belt? Or will we get in trouble?
Thanks for your help.
Also- how cute are these backpacks?
I know! I almost keeled over from the cuteness too!
The girls simply had to have them for their super exciting plane ride.
