Car Seat for Air Travel for 3.5 Yo

We're flying with our 1 yo old and 3.5 yo. The 1 yo will be on my lap. We will check his car seat. Question is: do I use a car seat for the 3.5 yo. He's pretty tall, about 42" and about 40 lbs. His car seat seems huge (Graco Nautilus) and I can't imagine him having any room. We will probably check his car seat anyway for driving around but I can't imagine using it on the plane. A friend said that she uses a booster for her 4 yo (who is smaller than my 3.5 yo) but I don't think that is approved by the FAA. I guess it's up to the...

I need airplane travel advice…my husband will be on the plane 5 hours (not including checking in) with my 3 1/2 month baby whom I am nursing. We will be sitting in regular class and we did not purchase a ticket for our baby, since she flies for free. The airline knows that she will be on the flight. Should we ask for specific seating? Does the airline have to provide special accommodations? Where would we change her diaper -do they have a changing table in the restroom? We were thinking of just bringing our Ergo (backpack carrier)...

Advice for Getting Infant into a Napping Pattern

My daughter was born in December and in October, I took a job working from home so I could be with her. We couldn't afford for me to not work so this is the best of both worlds for us. I started back to work part time last week and I go back full time next Monday. My daughter is 2 1/2 months old and does not nap during the day other than occassionally falling asleep in her bouncy seat for 20-30 minutes maybe twice a day. Does anyone have any advice/tips for getting her in a pattern of taking naps or is this just something that time will fix...
