I had to be a wet noodle, but airplane travel is incredibly safe. I would be surprised if anyone can come up with an instance of an lap-seated infant being harmed in an airline accident, when the child would have been OK in a car seat.Tens of thousands of planes take off and land each day without incident (in the US, at least) Life is about taking calculated risks. For example, it imagine it is much more dangerous to drive an hour in a car with a child in an infant seat, than to fly an hour with a child in the lap. Yet, people take their infants in car seats.If you want to spend money protecting your child, there have got to be better ways to do it: buy organic food (perhaps?), pay for a higher-quality baby-sitter or child-care provider.
