Its difficult to answer your question.If you are touring with a tour bus you wont need a car seat because they have the bed bunks and a part of the tour bus is like a room with table,tv,fridge and the seats dont have safty belts because its more like a sofa.It also really depends on,if you are touring in your country with a minivan or if you are flying overseas and have only one tourbus and driver,or if you are touring the world with multiple flights,different tour bus's and drivers,or flights with car drivers and different hotels.And if you are touring with a proper tour bus the question is if you are going to get a ride in a car to the different venues.I guess you will have somebody looking after your baby while you have sound checks and the gigs.Its quite a stress to tour with a baby/child..because if you are touring in a bus without hotel stops you usualy shower at the places where you play,and sometimes its quite dirty.
I think the best would be to go to a baby store where they sell car seats and ask them what would be best.They can show you different models,how heavy/light they are etc.
Good luck,and lotsa fun touring!

Wow, it appears the OP could use some manners herself. After all, this IS an international site, and to be quite honest, we have all interpreted her initial questions a little differently. You, my dear, need to learn to take things just a little less personally.

I actualy know that when kids are with on tour the managment takes care of booking hotels,and the transport aswell,if you dont drive to the place yourself.But because you wrote you are constantly touring i guess you play at clubs and that you arent in the big music industry, because people in the big music industry usualy only tour when they release a new album or play at big festivals and some big halls every now and then.The rest of the time is rehersal,song writing,recording and video shooting..and some other events where you are invited to as a special guest ofcourse..so they arent on tour constantly..and also a world wide tour ends eventualy.Its difficult to tour with a child,i know that for a fact.Especialy if you are on the road for days,it can be very tough,but i find it important that you find a good seat for your child,safety on the road is important.Btw when you fly you can also have her on your lap,and the airoplanes have a special place where the baby can sit/sleep in. Good luck

Whereas inferring that everyone in the community is a 'rude, frustrated old wench' is clearly not rude in the slightest...

LOL.

Incidentally, I do think of myself as a wench and I even have the corset to prove it. I suppose 1 out of 4 isn't that bad.

It is most definitely not rude to try to determine what sort of question you're really asking.

Honestly! Good grief. Just in case you're wondering, ladies, she took offense at me asking how her tours were booked initially, because generally, professional traveling performers have a team working on those arrangements. Not out of line at all.

Your question was vague and I think we were a little confused. Given that you told us you were a rock singer, I don't think it's that rude for someone to wonder how your life usually works and think that this would be the kind of thing organised by tour support staff - we all have preconceptions of that kind of thing that are probably based more on movies than they are on reality, but that's just the way it goes.

Either which way, one cannot in fairness generalise from one answer to the nature of an entire community.

Alright, so now I am gonna try to answer. A lot depends in how long you are in each area. Sometimes it is cheaper to fly with your own car seat, but frankly quite cumbersome. Some car rental places rent out car seats. But if u are staying in that area for a while, can get pricy. Same goes for hotels. You just need to ask if they have cribs there. Otherwise a travel pack and play would be your best bet, but once again cumbersome. Co sleeping might be your best choice depending on your comfort level.

Not sure how much luggage u have on tour, but a mid sized car would probably be the most convinient unless band members will be with u. In that case everyone pitching in for minivan or SUV will work. We do need more information though to give further advice.

No it's not clear. Are you asking about booking them? What company is the best to use? What to pack?
It is a very vague question and I would have thought that all the booking would be done by your manager/agent as well.

PS I also said what is easiest for rental cars and flying? Come on, is this not clear enough?

I think I was extremely clear with what I was asking. I said what is the best traveling system for my six month old girl I'm looking for small easy and compact. what more would you like me to say? And for her to reply with don't you have managers and agents to handle this for you, is plain rude.

I was a bit confused with what you were wanting us to help with.
Sometimes it's better to explain a bit more rather than getting on the defensive. We often don't write everything because we know what we are saying but strangers don't know.
The reply you got wasn't rude, she was trying to get some more information.

I am sorry you feel you have had such a bad experience on this forum. I have read through the post I feel you are upset about, and see that someone was suggesting that your agent or manager should be setting this stuff up for you. I don't feel it was intended as an insult. More of a question. Once again sorry for your frustration.
