I’m so glad that more information is coming out about how all passengers of a plane should have their own seat regardless of size/age. My Stepmother worked for an airline and heard far too often about babies flying around the cabin during bad turbulence.
Every time I’ve flown with my children they’ve had their own seats. Since they know once they are in their car seats they aren’t allowed out then end up falling asleep during the flights.

OK, I have been curious about this for a a long time, but now I really have to ask. I have flown all ower the world, except for the USA, and every lap infant I have ever seen has been provided with a seat belt that attaches to the parents seat belt, and it has been reguired that they use them every time the “fasten seat belt” sign is on (and preferrably at all other times as well unless they are in an air cot). Don’t they do that in the states? If not, why on earth not? I have seen quite a lot of turbulence, but never a child flying around the cabin, because they were all secured with seat belts. I have seen flight attendants flying through the cabin though, and felt very sorry for them. Hopefully someone can finally answer my question.
