A day at the Polynesian Cultural Center is a MUST while exploring Oahu with kids.
One of the top questions I get from Marcie in Mommyland readers is about flying with kids on an airplane. Should they bring a car seat? I’ve been traveling with my kids on airplanes for the past 4 years. Some flights I’ve used a car seat. Others I’ve primarily worn a baby in my Tula baby carrier.

So, Kids Fly Safe sent me 2 harnesses to review on my latest flight to Hawaii. See what I think below: Post contains affiliate links.
