Saturday’s horrible tragedy at San Francisco airport (fortunately, only two people died) really impressed on me the importance of buying Roo her own seat when we fly anywhere. No matter how short the flight, I will make sure she has her own seat and we have our car seat with us. I can’t imagine the force of the plane crashing as it landed and trying to keep her in my arms.
When we flew to San Francisco six weeks or so ago, we didn’t get her a seat but there was an empty one next to us each way. Had we known, I would have put her in her car seat.
The likelihood of an airplane crash is rare but this makes me think ten times more carefully about how we choose to travel with our precious little one.
What do you think? Are you now more inclined to buy a seat for your little one?
