Eilan is two years old now, and a few weeks ago he flew in his own, purchased seat for the first time! As with the other kids, we buckled him in using a lightweight CARES Child Aviation Restraint System. It was a great reminder for me about how much we've used and appreciated this product, so when I returned home, I contacted CARES to see whether they would let me give one away to one of my readers. I'm excited to say that they agreed! It's easy to enter, just leave a comment telling me about a family friendly hotel, restaurant or attraction. It can be in your hometown, or someplace you have visited.
Here's more about the CARES Child Aviation Restraint SystemCar Seat Accessories). CARES is a special harness designed just for airplane seats. Instead of lugging along your child's carseat, you bring this small, lightweight belt system that slips around the airplane seat. It's FAA approved, and it doesn't interfere with the way the seat operates in any way. Plus it fits in a purse or a backpack pocket. But just between you and me, the thing I'm most grateful for in-flight is that the kids sit back in the seat far enough that they cannot kick the seat head of them. We have two CARES that we purchased at our own expense for Everest, Darya, and now Eilan. We've also lent them to friends, and they're still in great shape 4 years later. They've been worth every penny.
Thank you to CARES who generously sponsored this giveaway
