In a couple of weeks I am flying with my 3 kids. My oldest is 9 so I don't have to worry about her running off. The baby will be 10 months and nestled in his Hotsling. The middle is almost 4 and a runner. I am considering just putting him in the stroller for his safety and my sanity but I also think that maybe I should try to snag a used Ergo and carry him on my back. Does anyone do this with 2? Either way I will probably have to bring the stroller, if I am wearing both boys than I will need it to put my carry on bags in.

so, i just finished a trip w/ a 3yo runner and a 4 1/2 month old.<br><br>
what worked for us: baby in my ergo, toddler lassoed in a sling (yes, think leash <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> -i never thought i'd do that) antway, with a small carry on sloulder bag, that combo seemed to work well. i love to pack light and that was just about enough stuff. w/ dd 'on a leash' it gave her the freedom for guided exploration yet eased my mind.<br><br>
whatever you decide to do, keep in mind that as you pass through the security checkpoints, baby comes out of sling/ergo and the slings/ergo must go through the security x-rays...yes, it's a pain...at least you'll have your 9yo to help....

Wow, that's great! How did you do that? Did you put your daughter on your back first, and then the sling? Or the other way around? Your zolo looks like it's resting on the straps of your FH--maybe it's just the pic? Where does the back of the sling go? Please please share!

Have tried it, too. Found that putting the sling on first makes more sense, because the chances are better that the big one will want to go up and down ... and also the sling doesn't sit right if there are mei-tai (or other) straps underneath.<br><br><br><br>
We're flying soon, too, and have the same issue. But DH won't let me wear two at once. Heck, he gets bent out of shape if I wear the 3yo, he thinks I'm being a martyr <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"> ...<br><br>

:LOL<br><br><br><br><br>
But anyway, a key issue at the airport is the take-off-put-back-on issue at the security gates, right?

I put the FH on first then the sling so that sling was covering one of the straps of the FH. I had DD on first then added DS. HTH

I have put my DD in my ring sling on my back and DS kangaroo carry in my hotsling to get through the airport before. It saved my life and did a lot of good for getting the sling image out in the public eye. Everyone was commenting on look at that smart mom she doesn't even have to mess with one of thosse bulky strollers. My kids were happy DD fell asleep and DS was taking it all in.
