Airplane safety vest.

BabybairSo it looks like Madame and I might be taking a plane to the east coast soon, and I’m not too proud to say it’s making me nervous. The first issue it looks like I’m going to have to deal with is whether I’m going to buy the baby a seat or not buy the baby a seat (and try to score one at the gate). The idea of having Madame exclusively in my lap for 5+ hours sounds daunting, not to mention kind of dangerous. Consequently I did some looking around online to see if there was something I was missing, and I found this – the Baby B’Air. It's a vest you put around your child with a tether that connects to your seat belt. Supposedly it will help keep your child restrained in case of unexpected turbulence. It seems to make sense, but I can't decide if this is one of those products that's worth it, or is just out there to make a quick buck off of nervous parents like me. Has anyone tried this thing?
