Mommy's Lil Helper: Gogo Kidz Travelmate

Mommy's Lil Helper: Gogo Kidz Travelmate

One of the biggest dilemmas parents face when flying with their kids is whether or not they should take their convertible car seat on board the plane. While the FAA strongly recommends that children under 40 lbs. be seated in a car seat on an airplane, the weight, bulkiness and over all inconvenience of lugging the seats through the airport, security and then onto the plane prevent many parents from doing so.

The folks at GoGo Baby Z have come up with an ingenious solution to this problem. Their GoGo Kidz Travelmate ($79.99) attaches directly to your convertible car seat, allowing you to wheel it through the airport (with your child in it), thus alleviating the balancing act that comes with carrying the seat.

Weighing only five pounds, it easily mounts to most toddler car seats and can be kept attached to the seat during your flight for even greater convenience. Best of all, when you arrive at your destination, you will have peace of mind knowing that your child is safe in their car seat as you drive to your hotel.

I've used this for 2 trips now across the country and find it indispensable for getting through and around the airport. The biggest con is that there is no quick-release for the contraption and I've been asked everytime by security to detach it so that it will fit through the scanner separately from the carseat. That is a huge PITA while trying to manage your child simultaneously.
