<p>I'm flying this week for the first time in almost 7 years---help!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We are flying AA out of a major aiport that has the new body scanners.  I've heard too much mixed information on this and don't want to do it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, I'm thinking of putting DS in the sling so that I can pop him out a security.  We'll carry have a messenger diaper bag, a carry-on and his convertible car seat.  I wish there was an alternative to the car seat but in addition to plane safety we need it for where we're going!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We'll have a 1-hour layover and have to change planes but all AA.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>DS has a cold and I'm concerned about his ears--thankfully, he's nursing so that will help. </p>

<p>You need to nurse him during take off and landing for it to help with his ears - so you may have to take him out of the carseat.  You can check the carseat, too.  I always held my babies on my lap during flights. </p>

<p>I would be concerned about the full body scanners.  But I also don't want to be groped by a TSA agent.  I don't have any advice for you about that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck!<br>
