Most domestic flights do nto require any child under age 2 to have a paid ticket or their own seat. If you want to pay for a seat then yes, they need a carseat. Some airlines offer them to use for in-flight. Check with the particualr airline you intend to use. ALL international flights require a paid seat adn car seat.
if your asking if you should buy your child a seat on an airplane the answer is yes.
just like you buckle him/her in a car seat a child should have the same on a plane.Answer by Annie
Kids under 2 years old do not have to pay for a seat as they are supposed to be on an adult’s lap.
At 3 month’s old, the baby would not be able to sit by himself anyway. They do have some car seats that are FAA approved for flight but if using it you would have to purchase a ticket for the baby.Answer by kerry07
No, you don’t need a seat for such a young child. I think the general rule is that with 2 years they have to have their own seat.
If it’s a longer flight you can ask for a seat that might have the option of a bassinett put in during the flight. Otherwise you just hold the baby on your lap … and hope for a flight that’s not overbooked.Answer by Lena
Your question is a bit jumbled, but I am guessing that you are asking if you are traveling with a 3 month old on a plane, do you need a special seat?
The answer is no, you don’t need one. At 3 months you can take your child on a plane with you with out purchasing a ticket for them, and you will need to hold your baby in your lap. Just inform the ticket agent you will have a child in your lap.
If money was not an issue and you would rather your baby have their own seat, you could purchase a ticket for them and bring your carseat along. The carseat would then have to be approved for airlines (It would say so on the seat somewhere, and most of them are). In this case the baby would be buckled into the seat during, at the very least, takeoff and landing.
I took my kids on several planes this past summer, a few of the flights while my youngest was three months. I had her on my lap, and it worked out just fine.
Don’t forget to try to feed the baby (nurse or bottle feed) during takeoff and landing to prevent pressure in those little ears. 🙂Answer by joeybowiesmom
If you want her to have her own seat on the plane then she would need something like a carseat. but if you don’t want to get her her own seat(you don’t have to) then just hold her on your lap. That’s what I did.Answer by AFwife
you dont have to……but it would depend on the length of the flight rather it would be a good suggestion. international flights require you to pay a partial fare even for a lap child who doesnt have a seat…..so paying a little extra for the baby to sleep in their carseat on a 16 hour flight is worth it in my honest opinion….if your talking about a couple hour domestic flight (and if money was an issue) then no……i always pay extra for a seat for my kids. most airlines do give discount faires especially if the child is young enough to be a lap child (under 2) and the parent is choosing to purchase them a ticket as a safety precaution.Answer by Shira H
you can ask for a bassinet when you book. They are free of charge!
The bassinet hangs in front of you (hooked on the wall) and the baby can lay in there (up until 5 months out of the top of my head)
If you do go on an international flight i suggest you pay the 10% (most airlines ask 10% of the adult ticket price for a child under 2 years old with an own seat) and take your carseat, as suggested by other moms here
