She first places the tot to sit on top of the suitcase with her back pressed against the raised handle.

The mom then got her daughter to wear a jacket which she fastened around the back of the structure – effectively acting as a makeshift harness.

Next, she turned her attention to her three-year-old.

Lisa slipped the youngster’s legs through the arms of her own backpack before popping it on to achieve a supported piggy back approach.

The video then saw the trio strolling through the airport with ease with the kids by her side at all times.

But the insight left viewers bitterly divided.

Another said there would be ‘no more running around’ as someone else added: ‘They are loving it.’

Yet, others were more skeptical.

‘My anxiety could never something might pop,’ one wrote.

Someone else said: ‘I’d be worried abt the buttons coming undone.’ 

Another questioned: ‘Am I the only one who gets nervous watching this?’ 

Lisa previously caused a stir after revealing how she used Velcro to strap her kids into their plane seats.

In the clip, which has so far been viewed more than 19.7 million times, Lisa could be seen preparing the plane seat for her toddler on an unidentified flight.

The content creator began by adding a Velcro strip to the seat before placing the corresponding patches to her daughter’s clothes.

The youngster was then safely secured in position and was no longer able to wander off unattended.

Lisa then showed how easy it was to remove both sets of strips at the end of the flight.

But the practice was met with fierce debate.

On the one hand, there were those who hailed the idea as being ‘genius,’ adding: ‘I love it – work smarter, not harder people!!!’ 

A second person commented: ‘My kid needs this for meal times.’

Another added: ‘Taking notes, while having 0 kids.’

But, on the other hand, many decided to take a dim view of the idea.

One person wrote: ‘Until five seconds later with my child would use their vocal chords to express their frustration.’

Another commented: ‘This looks like something that’d work at first till the kid gets frustrated.’

And a third person added: ‘I felt so bad for [the kid].’

Other commenters were reminded of a scene from the Walt Disney film, called The Goofy Movie, in which one of the animated characters named Pete used Velcro strips to keep babies still during their professional photoshoots.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration: ‘The safest place for your child under the age of two on a U.S. airplane, is in approved child restraint system (CRS) or device, not in your lap.

‘A child restraint system (CRS) is a forward- or rear-facing hard-backed child safety seat. 

‘Your arms aren’t capable of holding your in-lap child securely, especially during unexpected turbulence.’

The site’s travel advice continued: ‘The FAA strongly urges you to secure your child in an approved CRS, or other approved device for the entirety of your flight. 

‘Buying a ticket for your child is the only way to guarantee that you will be able to use a CRS. 

‘It’s the smart and right thing to do so that everyone in your family arrives safely at your destination.’  

According to the National Institutes of Health‘s 2019 study: ‘Unrestrained lap children are prone to in-flight injuries, particularly during meal service or turbulence.’
