Will airport security let you wear a baby as you go thru security? - Page 3

post #41 of 46
It definitely depends. I took ds through in a mei tai and wasn't asked to take him out gong one way, but then was asked to take him out going the other way.

If they asked everyone to remove their shoes/babies/ and searched everyone's luggage thoroughly etc. there would be much longer waits then there already are. I think the point is that most people aren't terrorists and it's all about measured risks. Most people with proper identification for themselves and their infants who have their own infants with them are probably less likely to intend to blow up the plane. These things are still left to the individual descretion of the security guard.

If she's been sleeping in the ergo, they never make me take her out, just shoes (even her little robeez when she was itty bitty...which is a pain, dig?). One time I think I had to disassemble, and that was a pain, but usually we just walk on through. They do ask sometimes if the thing has metal, and I suppose that's a deal breaker, but I dunno.

The one time I traveled with a babe in a carrier (a wrap - nothin' but cloth), she was 18 months. On the outgoing trip I had to take her out and take her shoes off and she walked thru the metal detector herself. On the way home she stayed in the wrap and kept her shoes on.

I flew last month and I did not have to remove baby from the wrap. When I flew with my middle child as a baby (three years ago), I did have to take her out of the sling.

I took mine through the airport, both in a wrap and in a ring sling, and never was I asked to take him out. I went through Denver and Roanoke airports with him.
