    the bassinette is only for small infants, you definatly cannot put a 2 year old in one, in fact I thought once your child could sit you couldn't use them

    Oops, you are correct. They are small and you would never get a 2 year old in one.

    Thanks for all your replies! We've always booked a seat for the little guy (we've done 3 trans-Pacific flights now) and have used his carseat, I was just wondering about your experiences if you didn't bring the carseat.

    We have a spare carseat in the US already, so that wouldn't be an issue. It just seems like the last few trips I've taken, we are the only family using a carseat. (which, I think for my sanity, it would be better because bubs is such an active fellow)

    Sleuth - your carseat-stroller sounds like a great alternative, since I do bring his stroller with us each time. Where did you get it? I have also seen a stroller attachment I can add to the carseat to convert it to a stroller. I should revisit that.

    For babies / children UNDER 2 years of age: if you travel with British Airways, you can have a seat attached to the bassinet stand instead of using a crib. We used this for our son from 3 months all the way till he was 2 (when we had to pay for his seat). Its like sitting in a car seat but you don't have to pay for an extra seat. Best to book it in advance though!

    Jubee,
    Ours is called a Sit-N-Stroll and we got it at Target in the US. The wheels fold into the base of the car seat and it can be done by one person. The handle telescopes up and down, so when you want it to be a stroller, you pull the wheels out and the handle up and you are ready to go. It is perfect for airports and malls, not too bad on streets and sidewalks. Wouldn't be good for really uneven terrain as the wheels just aren't big enough.

    Thanks for the info Sleuth. Do you remember how much you paid for it? If it's cheaper than the car seat attachment, maybe I'll get the Sit-n-Stroll instead. (the seat attachment is about $90 USD but you have to add tax and possible shipping etc)

    mrs momo - here is the info on the stroller attachment:

    We paid a little less than US$200.
