  • Um, you shouldn't need an ID for an infant to fly. It's not like your 5 mo is going to whip out a box cutter and shouldn't be on any terrorist watch lists. If your state doesn't offer a photo ID for infants, then you couldn't possibly HAVE a photo ID for him.

  • This is what the TSA has to say about identification:

    Effective June 21, 2008, ***ADULT*** passengers (18 and over) are required to show a U.S. federal or state-issued photo ID that contains the following: name, date of birth, gender, expiration date and a tamper-resistant feature in order to be allowed to go through the checkpoint and onto their flight. (all-caps and asterisks done by me)

    What this means is that ANY child passenger is NOT required to have ID.

  • They usually require either an immunization record or a birth certificate. Enjoy your trip!
