When you kid starts to complain about riding in a kids car seat, and if he or she is at least four years old and their head has reached to top of their current seat, it's time for a booster seat.
Although a baby which weighs less than 40 pounds can share an adult seat, you may find it more convenient flying with a car seat. Most airlines recommend this, particularly on a long haul flight, for the comfort and safety of both you and your baby. In the United States most car seats will have FAA approval so there certainly should not be a problem with domestic flights. To make sure you are not asked to check your child seat in as baggage you must make sure your CRS is approved and has "This restraint is certified for use in motor vehicles and aircraft" printed on it.
Of course you want to take your baby away with you whether on a short trip or a long holiday, but it can be hard, particularly flying long haul. For overseas travel the U.S. Department of State issues passports and YES every U.S. citizen - including infants - needs a valid passport to enter and leave most foreign countries, if you need a passport fast then using a site like Rush My Passport may be the best way to go. It does pay to know the airline company rules, so a good rule of thumb is to give the particular airline you are traveling on a call just to be safe, there is nothing worse than getting to the airport and then finding out you can't do xyz. If you are traveling with a newborn make sure you leave plenty of time to get through security. These 10 tips for flying with a baby will help you manage your journey and make your trip a lot more pleasant for both you and your baby.
