    Car seat for USA and Europe.

    Hi all,
    I'm travelling with my 10mths old baby to USA and Europe.
    I was hoping to find a car seat that I could use in both continents and hopefully on the airplane as well.
    Obviously, it is more important if I can use them in the countries and the airplane use will be just a plus.
    Thanks

    Hi Diana,

    Is your current seat airline approved? If so, I'd just use that. There are no seats that are approved for both the US and Europe.

    this. I'll add that unless your seat is European or has built in lockoffs, familiarize yourself with how to use a locking clip (Euro seats don't require then bc of European routing).
