Hey @jcastro

 

If your child is an infant and will be traveling as a lap child, you will need a birth certificate. 

 

If children are flying on any special fares (infant or child) they will need to be age verified. (Read more at the link I provided below.)

 

Read more here from the Southwest website: https://www.southwest.com/html/customer-service/family/baby-on-board-pol.html?clk=GFOOTER-CUSTOMER-I...

 

If your kids are aged 6 & under, you qualify for family boarding. That occurs between A and B group boarding. 

 

Happy travels!
