Does anyone know if the convertible car seats have to face front or back on airplanes? We are headed to Europe in March with our DD and for some reason I thought I remembered reading somewhere that those types of seats had to face forward, but I can't remember where I read that. I would rather it face backwards so its easier to keep an eye on her, put a blanket over the seat and her car seat to help her sleep and so that she reclines some and sleeps better (I'm hoping).
I'm ordering a "toddler" meal for her (we're flying Delta). Can anyone elighten me as to what exactly it could be. I had a choice between baby, child or toddler and I chose toddler since she will be 21 months then. The last time we flew to Europe with her she was in her infant seat so she faced backwards. If she faces forward will we be able to use her tray table for her to eat and/or play on?
Also, we currently use the Safety 1st Complete Air 65 for her. I'm looking for one that is lighter and less bulky to use on the plane. Can anyone recommend one?
