Local and/or state laws regarding car seats and child restraint systems (booster seats).

New York's Occupant Restraint laws require the following:

  • Children up to the age of 4 must be properly restrained in a federally approved child safety seat that is attached to a vehicle by a seat belt or universal child restraint anchorage (LATCH) system.
  • Children less than age 4 but weighing more than 40 poundsmay be restrained in a booster seat with a lap/shoulder safety belt. However, a child safety seat that accommodates higher weights can be used.
  • Children ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 must be properly secured in an appropriate child restraint system, one for which the child meets the height and weight recommendations of the child restraint manufacturer.*
  • An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight recommended by the manufacturer.
  • A vehicle's safety belt is NOT a child restraint system.
  • Children riding in booster seats must be secured with a combination lap/shoulder seat belt, NEVER secure a child in a booster seat with only a lap belt.
  • From the age of 8 until they reach their 16th birthday, children must be restrained in a seat belt whenever they ride in a vehicle. All Front seat passengers must be properly restrained at all times, regardless of age.
  • Children 12 years and younger should ride in the back seat. By simply buckling up your child in the back seat reduces his/her risk of death by 33%.

*It is recommended that booster seats be used until your child is 4 foot 9 inches tall or weighs 100 pounds.[/li][/list]

I remembered that
"We wheel the kids through the airport and right to their seat on the plane thanks to 2 GoGo Babyz Travelmates that fit into the overhead bins."
but

In for 2 with TimT's link. thanks all. Anyone know if they'll wheel right down the aisle to the back of the plane?
I only did it once, and it wheeled all the way back with some maneuvering. One way was on Frontier and the other on Spirit, both in 3-3 configurations (don't remember which planes), so I doubt the aisles get much narrower. The restricting factor is more likely to be the width of the car seats you're using them with.

I think I used a Britax (Boulevard maybe) and a Scenera.

Just a quick update.  Lax - ewr RT.  757-200. Two Britax carseats.  Both wouldn't fit down the aisle empty,  much less with a squirming toddler.
Also had some trouble with the carseats shifting and hitting the wheel.  Had to adjust them most times after switching from upright to rolling position. 
All in all made it easier to get the carseats through the airport, but we still needed a stroller,  to help with the bags and stuff,  and for my 4 year old who doesn't like walking,  and $150 is a lot of money.

Is BuyBuyBaby's warranty better than Bed Bath & Beyond's?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

As

If I remember correctly they're actually a little stricter, although you can return to bed bath, so not really sure where that leaves you. Anyway I remember looking at it a while ago and thinking bed bath was more generous / easier to deal with.

Edit -
And by warranty I'm assuming you mean return policy

I don't think any toddler car seat is intended to be 'snapped' into any stroller, period. That concept is limited to infant car seats.
