Has anyone flown with an almost 2 year old on your lap? We flew last year but had "big seats" on Spirit (so he could really sit beside me in the seat). The two flights we took last year went really well but for some reason I just feel really uneasy this year.
On top of my already present apprehension, this year, Spirit is not allowing us to buy the big seats with an infant on the lap. As such we are forced to sit in the three person rows (ugh). So we are debating between: (a) getting him his own seat and (b) trying to hold him on our laps in the crowded 3 person seats, with an inevitable stranger right beside us.
Also, as an aside, (dumb question) if he has his own seat is the "rule" to bring a car seat?
