Research from Children’s Hospital in Cleveland indicates children are more likely to be injured from hot drinks and co-sleeping on planes.
The study found of all child injuries on planes, a third of children were injured from hot drinks and another third were injured from co-sleeping on the laps of parents.
Additionally, younger children were more likely to be injured than older children and longer flights were more dangerous than shorter ones.
The research urges parents to book another seat for their infant children, if possible, and remain vigilant of their children, particularly if they are near hot drinks or out of their seats.
