FlyeBaby Infant Airplane Seat
Never miss a local story.
At first glance, it might look like a catapult that will send your infant skyward through the cabin. But, actually, the infant seat for your baby to use on airplanes features a five-point restraint harness to keep the bundle of joy firmly in front of you. Yes, in front.

That way, baby is staring at you the entire flight and not drooling on the guy in the middle seat. Caveat: Not for use in turbulence, or takeoffs and landings.
