  • See I've never flown with *any* of my kids before! I'm nervous!

  • Flying with a little one is pretty easy! With the front pack carrier, they made me take it off and carry my baby through the metal detectors and put the carrier under the x-ray machine.

    And wear slip on shoes! You don't want to have to tie/untie your shoes while juggling a baby.

Thank you LAB!

  • I bet they will make you take that off... I had to take a mai-thai sling which is made completely of fabric off when we flew to new york and it had to go through the metal detectors...
Thank you brandimichelle!

  • I didn't even think about that, but the plan is to push him in the stroller till the gate. I can check the stroller right there and it's a "courtesy item" so it's free. Then I figured I'd put him in the front carrier to be on the plane.

  • You won't be able to check the stroller until you are actually boarding the plane... and the stroller will have to go through the metal detector as well...
