Christmas we are spending with my in-laws this year, as we do every few years. They pay for the airfare for us, which is great. This year my father-in-law told me that he is not going to buy a ticket for my one daughter who will be 15 months at the time of travel.
While I understand it saves him the price of a ticket, it feels a bit unsafe to me. Last time we flew there he had no problem paying for a seat for my other daughter who was 13 months at the time.
I was thinking of using carrier for her, you know the ones like a front facing backpack. It might actually be easier on me in the long run rather than having 2 carseats getting on a plane. There will be 7 of us traveling and it's always hectic anyways. The flight is short anyways, we're in the air maybe an hour.
Who has traveled with a lap baby before? What experiences did you have? Would you do it again?
