A Car Seat Cover Is Crucial!
If you have a child and are traveling, do you travel without a cover for your car seat? This is something I see often at the airport and it makes me cringe. Your car seat needs a cover when you travel, please let me tell you why.
When you check your bag, it doesn’t immediately go to the plane. It has to go down several conveyer belts, many different hands touch it, and it often sits in carts with other bags surrounding it. The carts that are used at the airport are not the cleanest, and not all of them are covered. So, if you don’t have a car seat cover, the seat your precious child sits in will be completely filthy by the time it gets to your destination.
Many luggage carts are do not have a cover which means if your car seat is not covered, they are subjected to the elements.
Car seats are considered the same as luggage and will be delivered to your destination but there will be no special treatment for your child’s seat. But really, if you don’t take special care to cover your child’s seat before you travel, how can you expect the airlines to treat it any differently than a normal bag?
I really hate to see car seats that are uncovered because I know how dirty baggage carts can get. And think about this, your luggage is often on the ground outside before it gets loaded into the plane, which means your car seat can often be upside down on the ground which is the same ground people walk and spit on.
I don’t have any kids but I think everyone’s child is precious and I hate to think of your child sitting in a car seat that has airport filth all over it.
