Yeah.... gotta go with Rrrrrachel here. I have flown with a lap child once. The other choice was driving. I did my research and from what I found we were safer to fly with a lap baby than to drive. I would make the same choice again with the stats I've read. If there is something that shows that driving is the safer choice, I would reconsider. No one says that a road trip is an unacceptable risk- that you should fly or not go. Why is this different?
