Baby B`Air is worn by the infant like a vest. It is placed over the child's head, and secured by adjustable straps on both sides under the baby's arms. The third strap comes from behind, between the baby's legs, and buckles to the front with another adjustable strap. The excess straps Velcro neatly to the vest so that there are no loose straps. FRONT BACK The Baby B'Air can be worn as any other garment would since it is constructed of 100% cotton and comfortable to wear. After take-off, the parent feeds their seat belt through the loop on the back of the Baby B'Air, refastens the seat belt and tightens the seat belt. Your infant can now be held, fed and even changed while both parent and child remain securely fastened in their seat. The parent can read, eat or even nap knowing their baby cannot fall or pull from their loving arms.

The FAA changed the existing regulations in early 1996, banning devices other than approved car seats during takeoff, taxi and landing. This FAA rule change DOES NOT prohibit the use of the Baby B'Air during the cruise portions of the flight. The FAA banned these types of devices during take-off, taxi and landing because they could cause more harm than good (for more information see the next question in bold below.) Since the vest has been designed to address the specific safety concerns of aircraft, Baby B'Air is working to win an exception for our new product so that it may be used during the entire flight. Until that rule is changed, the vest cannot be used during takeoff, taxi and landing in the U.S. The applicable FAA regulation, known as a CFR, is clearly marked on the back of each vest for the benefit of the parent and flight personnel. These regulations may also be found in the card that came with the vest. It is a good idea to keep this card handy when you use the vest on any airline. Why is the Baby B?Air the only safety solution for lap children? Can?t I use another device to secure my child safely? Shoulder or harness carriers and other such devices could place the child in the parent?s crush zone, injure the parent?s back or cause injury to the child. The Baby B?Air Flight Vest was designed specifically to address these concerns, allowing the child to travel out of the parent?s crush zone while attached to the lap belt, not the parent?s body. The Baby B?Air is the ONLY device to address these safety concerns found in aircraft. For more information about the use of carriers on aircraft see the FAA website section titled "Reminders" second bullet point Isn?t take-off, taxi and landing the most dangerous portion of the flight? No. Surprisingly, over 90% of all injuries occur during flight, mainly due to turbulence. Children are often left unprotected during this time and even removed from car seats. Parents are encouraged to secure their child through the flight. What if the flight attendant has a problem with the Baby B'Air? Simply show the flight attendant the tag on the back of the Baby B'Air listing the FAA ruling noting that it does not prohibit use during flight. You may encounter flight personnel who are not familiar with the entire content of the FAA ruling and the tag is placed on the Baby B'Air to provide the exact location of the rule. If a passenger has any misunderstanding with a flight attendant: Since the Baby B'Air Flight Vest is a new product, some airline personnel are unaware that the FAA regulations allow the Baby B'Air for use in flight. If any parent has a problem using the Baby B'Air in flight, they may return the vest directly to Baby B'Air for a $50 refund check by providing the airline and flight information.
