Designating your kid as a "lap child" on your flight will save you money, but it won't make for a comfortable ride. Sorry, but there's just no way your baby is going to be comfortable resting in your arms for an entire cross-country flight. Give your arms some rest with the Better Infant Airplane Seat ($50). Hooking to the tray table, this miniature hammock allows your small child to recline securely between take off and landing. It also leaves your hands free for more important things like feeding your child, reading a book, or hitting the flight attendant up for a cocktail.
