What things do I need?


New member
We're flying in 2 weeks and taking DD's Radian (will be forward facing). Just saw Wendy's recommendation on how to install it in another thread. Thannks! I'll keep it in mind.

My question is, what are things I need to bring with us? I thought I saw a thread way back about getting a copy of some things which I don't remember now. Not sure if it was FAA rules, car seat manual, etc. Please let me know what we need to bring.

Also, do I need to bring DD's birth certificate or any kind of identification?

I can't see you having an issue and needing anything. The FAA recs are often for rear facing seats, because a lot of flight attendants are confused. No birth certificate or ID is needed domestically for a child under 18 who has their own ticket.
