The car/child seat must be able to fit between the armrests of the aircraft seat and your child and the child seat need to be secured according to the seat manufacturer’s instructions.

Children travelling in their own (booked) seat may bring the same amount of hand baggage as an adult and hold luggage can be booked for them.
