We should mention

Parents or legal guardians travelling with children who are under 18 years old must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is travelling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's birth certificate and identity card with photo – a letter authorising the trip signed by the other parent with a notarised certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorisation, judicial authorisation is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult the Brazilian consulate before travelling for more information.
