So the NTSB has just issued a statement saying they want the FAA to make it mandatory that babies be strapped into carseats during takeoff, landing and when the fasten seat belt sign is on. I am furious my parents live a 7 hour flight away from me, and as most of us know well one of the things that make it possible to fly that far is that I can nurse for take off and landing, and I can have my daughter in my arms, to sooth her and comfort her and attend to her needs. They won't allow babies to be strapped into carriers either. How do we meet our children's needs when they are making it so difficult. I am very stressed and feeling like if this passes I'm going to be alienated from my family, and not able to visit them anymore.
No announcement yet.
