Re: flying with a 3mo old?
when we flew with DS that young we took our own carseat, but we were going to NZ and I don't like their carseat laws and seats they have available for rent. We gate checked it but reading this we will check it in next time. At 3mo having a lap child is no big deal, you'll probably end up holding her a lot anyway. But at 20m when we went to Australia and had DS as a lap child b/c he was under 2 and it saved SO much.. well, we vowed never to do that again with an older toddler with DS's convertible seat we bungee corded it to a package wheely thing (had a 200+ lb weight limit) and sat him in it, worked like a charm! we got it for $20 from Walmart for my co-op packages lol
