Where was this when we went on vacation?? This is the best mom invention of the year in my book! I know some of you must be needing something like this, so I thought I'd share. You can find it on the website, but for a quick glance here's a little info:
"When Louise saw her daughter Miriam waddling off the plane seven months pregnant, a toddler on her hip, a diaper bag over one shoulder and carrying a 20-pound car seat, she knew there had to be a better way."
CARES, the Child Aviation Restraint System, is the only harness type child aviation safety restraint ever certified for airplane travel by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
CARES is an elegantly designed belt and buckle device for kids 22-44 pounds that is easy to use and creates a safe airplane seat for your child without the hassle of carrying a 20 pound car seat.
CARES weighs just 1 pound and fits into a 6" stuff sack! It is simple to install, adjustable to virtually any size airplane seat, and keeps your chilid as safe as a car seat would.
CARES is made of the same industrial-strength webbing as your own seatbelt. It is engineered and manufactured by AmSafe Aviation, the world's foremost manufacturer of airline seatbelts."
Pretty nifty huh?
