Lap infant on award ticket (online vs call centre)

Successfully booked a flight on BR using AP miles next summer however need to add a lap infant. Read online there is functionality on the web when booking an award ticket to add a lap infant however the flight i wanted showed no availability when adding a lap infant and only available when i select 1 adult. I booked it nonetheless, if i called in and paid the lap infant fee i assume AC can add on a partner award? Thanks.

Yes - there's a buggy element to the lap infants on rewards. I've often booked the core ticket and then called to add the infant later.

In my experience you need to call in whenever you are adding an infant to a partner award. When you call make sure you're prepared to wait a while as for some reason in most cases the regular phone agents aren't able to complete this and need to get ticketing involved.
