Need a baby seat in Hawaii????

Does anyone know if you need a baby seat for Hawaii? We are going to Kauai in July with 20 month old. We might be renting a car - do we need a car seat? Should I bring my own or rent one? What about taxis, do you need a car seat for the baby or will they let you go on without?

Can't find any info on that anywhere.

Thanks for the advice.

Hi Bellezza! Doing a quick google search I have found that yes, children weighing less than 50 pounds must be in a child safety seat or booster seat. You can usually get them from the rental company but I would call to confirm one.

It is STRONGLY recommended that you purchase a separate seat for your child, particularly on such a long flight. If you do have a separate seat, then you should bring your car seat along. However, there is no law stating that you buy a separate seat for children under two - it is just highly advised by the FAA, AAP etc.

Even if you do not have a separate seat, I would bring the car seat anyways for your car rental or for taxis.

I have traveled 6 times in the past year with my 15 mo old and have always brought along the car seat just in case. It really isn't that much trouble to carry - just hook it on to the back of the stroller. The car seat can easily be gate checked.

You need the car seat in cars, but not in Taxis. Most, but not all car rental cos have them for a price.

We are taking our 14 mo. old grandchild to Kauai this summer. You do have to have a car seat, but I hear the ones from the car rental agencies are grungy, so we are bringing one from home. Wrapping it in a garbage bag to keep it clean, and sending it through with the luggage. Checking the umbrella stroller at the gate.
