  1. Leigh-Ann Draheim says:

    Flye Baby and Sky Baby are not safe.

    Flye baby puts baby into a position of being your personal air bag, AND tray tables hardly hold them selves up let alone a wiggly infant.
    Sky baby – not crash tested and again puts baby in the crush zone.

    Its only safe for babies to ride in their carseats on the plane!

    Ear plug things – pointless because airplanes are properly pressurized now, the ear issue is a thing of the past.

    Last one, the seatbelt cover – again not crash tested, not safe. It will compress in a crash leaving the seatbelt too loose. If the belt digs into the child’s neck, they are too small to be without a booster seat anyway.

    Most of the other products are just pointless.

  2. I just want to comment that the ear plugs are not pointless, no matter how properly pressurized the airplane is, some people are just very sensitive … I cannot handle the landing without earplanes (and sometimes takeoff isnt tolerable without them either) … i will be in so much pain that I’ll be in tears without them … the second time I flew this freaked my parents out a bit (this was barely 3 years ago). The first time I traveled and it was long long ago, when the plane landed I couldn’t hear anything for a while (i was not with my parents) … everyone ears are different.

  3. Traveling with babies are often very unsafe. We always have to look after them for their safety. Because the environment around them are not friendly to babies. But their safety can be ensured by some of these gadgets above. These gadgets are so useful that those has become so much popular among parents nowadays. So If you are thinking about traveling with your baby you must grab those gadgets.

  4. You’re going to have more issues in a plane crash than just having your baby act as an air bag. When in a crash the flier in the seat back tells you what to do. Also some car seats are huge & not practical for travel. I still think it’s a pointless purchase but I don’t think the safety risk is that significant

  5. Ear plugs don’t work for me or my kiddo….we both have very narrow ear canals and they just don’t stay put. However, both of our ears also HURT on the take-off and landing. He cried and I had a few tears leak out. It’s worse if I’m having allergies or a cold (which, inevitably, I will have on the return trip from anywhere.) But my ears crackle-pop just going to the 2nd or 3rd floor of a building (and again going back down!). I chew on very chewy candy like caramels or taffy, and fake yawn.

  6. Leigh-Ann Draheim I know you probably will not see this but you do realise that majority of the world and airlines especially in Europe YOU CAN NOT take a car seat/travel seat on the plane with you! That’s what this gadget is for, I know on some American airlines you can but I think you will find that its ONLY in America, so I’m guessing you have never travelled outside to or from another country, so you know for nearly all airlines in Europe you dont even get a seat for children under 2 they have to sit on a parents lap throughout the whole journey! If you think about it logically though if your plane is going down and is going to crash the last thing on your mind would be that your child is about to be your airbag but instead that those are the last moments that you will ever be holding your child while alive because more than likely everyone on the plane will die in a crash, we are not talking about a car crash where your chances of survival are more than likely! Your comment was very unrealistic to say the least.
