Whether you are traveling within the same state, from one coast to the other, or around the globe, having your little ones feeling safe will make the flight all the more tolerable.
Children, when faced with unfamiliar environments such as a plane’s interior compartment, seek familiar things to make them feel protected and maintain their calm. A car seat with the old trusty harness that gently coddles your child by the shoulders and around the waist is what they are used to on long rides, so why not give them the same on a plane. CARES to the rescue!
We all have had experiences where a 40-minute flight felt like it was taking forever. For parents of young kids, these situations most often arise when the kids are just not happy campers. Fidgety, loud, unruly, it all builds to a crescendo when your child just erupts into inconsolable crying. Your fellow passengers first glance, then shake their heads, and then worse. Give them something familiar, a harness like their car seat, with CARES.
