Q: I’ve seen the video of what to do if the plane depressurizes and I need to pull the oxygen mask down. They also say to make sure you put on your won mask before helping your baby or someone around you. I have to fly with my baby on my lap. In case of depressurization, will there be a mask for him, or do I share mine?
A: Great question! Every section in the plane as one extra mask just for this case (or if one is inoperable). That’s why you never see two lap babies in one section, unless one has his own seat. It’s also why families with 2 lap babies get split up on planes and sometimes put across the aisle from each other.
