    Once upon a time there was a very optioned thread on to-recline or not-to-recline (your seat). Here is an interesting derivation:

    a) Baby in a car seat that cannot reach the seat in from of them prior to takeoff
    b) After takeoff the passenger in front fully reclines their seat ramming into the car seat
    c) As the airplane seat-back is now pushing against the car seat the baby can kick the back of the seat

    If/when the baby kicks the seat (okay when they do), what should happen?

    Seems like the reclining passenger must live with his decision.
    Just my opinion.

    Passenger in reclined seat should turn around and in a calm and friendly voice explain to the baby that kicking the back of the seat is causing discomfort.

    The cautionary tale is the baby may explain, in their own way, how the setback pushing against the car seat is causing them discomfort :rolleyes:

    This is another reason why I think babies should only be allowed to fly in premium cabins.
