The damn carseat on the plane-

Everytime I get on a plane- the whole carseat debate starts up again- and on our recent trip last week from Sweden to the States- it was no different. Because there is no consistency I hear different commands each time: "it has to be next to the window", "it can't be next to the window" "you have to buckle it in the back" " you have to buckle it on top" "it's too big" "it should be rear facing" (even though it is a forward facing seat) To be honest, I don't really care as long as I have it buckled in and the kid is safely in it. When I get the too big comment, I turn it over and show them the sticker to pacify them. And I try to pick my battles. So don't be alarmed if you get on the plane and you hear something completely different from your last trip (even on the same airline.) The worst thing that could happen is that you are not allowed to use it and that could make your trip extra long.
