Re: Air/Hotel travel with an infant
I have found traveling with a baby that young is easier than mobile chatty older kids. I have taken strollers when flying because we had layovers but never my nicest stroller because they get damaged even in a gate check. I am willing to risk a stroller if I need one but would caution you about checking(gate or otherwise) a carseat. Baggage handlers are in a hurry and are not known to be especially delicate with items. Your carseat could VERY easily be damaged which would put your LO at risk. Will you be renting a car or will someone be picking you up from the airport? I would purchase a thrifty seat online and have it shipped to your family. I have installed seats in the parking garage plenty of times
Just in case.
