On a Jet Plane: When to Buy a Seat
We're certain that there are many well-traveled parents out there who can provide Liz some friendly advice on her question. She writes:
Hubby & I want to visit friends in San Diego in the middle of April - our son will be 1 years old by then. Do we need to get him his own seat on the plane? When he was younger we flew with him on our lap with this harness vest for flying - it worked great we would probably have to buy the bigger size now. Also we were thinking of making a day trip to Tijuana, Mexico (never been) is that a crazy idea to go with a 1 year old? We will have a rental car & drive from San Diego.
