We are traveling with 3 Kids ages 7,5 and 2. We are taking our frame pack Kelty Ridgeline to carry the 29# 2.5yo. Will they let me take it to the gate like you do a stroller and give it right back when we land?
I've worn my Baby Bjorn three times now (6 flights back and forth). All airports except one made me take it off to go through security -- a major pain. I had to put it through the metal detector, and at 2 airports I think that tagged me as a suspect and I got the full search - grrr -- baby included. Something to consider!
I wore it right onto the plane and then put it in the overhead baggage area. Still better than trying to maneuver a stroller around in the crowds!
Wearing your little one makes airports so much easier. I have had to fly internationally twice with my 21 month old. We have also had to travel 2-3 times within the U.S. Although it is a pain to take her off when I go through the metal detector -it is more than worth chasing a little one all over the airport. I have checked and carried on my carriers both. Very little hassle. Hope that helps. Have fun on your trip
my tough traveler fit in the overhead compartment. She had a ticket so she got carry on allocation though i. i checked the stroller, which i used to ferry her carseat, carried on the seat, backpack and the diaper/snack/toy bag and my purse.
i am traveling alone with my two kids next week and i think i will have one in a stroller and one on my back and i pray that NO ONE asks me to put it all through the metal decetor and remove my baby from my back. i will not be able to handle all of that by myself i know it!!!!
