Oh, how I laugh at my pre-baby self. Tommy and I booked a trip with the baby prior to her being born. On an airplane. Leaving at 6:00 in the morning. What in the world was I thinking? (On the 6:00 a.m. thing it was the shortest travel time – tell me this was a good idea, right?) This one will also go under the completely naïve category.
On the plus side, we are bringing our moms on this trip, so the baby to adult ratio is 1 to 4. I am hoping this helps. And I am hoping the fact that the trip is still over a month away may make my travel anxiety subside : ).
So all of your mommy travelers, I need your help.
1- Advice on how in the world to check the carseat, pack n play and stroller? Unfortunately, we are not taking Southwest. Do you gate check the carseat and stroller? How does that work?
2- Would you bring your snap n go stroller or your umbrella? (Mind you, we have never actually opened our umbrella stroller since she is only three months old.)
3- What brand of car seat bags do you recommend? Here are my options on Amazon:
JL Childress Carseat bag – $35 (mind you, I am already betting this is our last trip with the baby in car seat for quite sometime and I am only willing to pay for this if it is an absolutely necessary expense).
Option 2 is a little more reasonable since we won’t be doing too much traveling via plane, but wanted to see if any of you guys had bought one. This is Jeep brand for only $18.
Do I also need the Snap n Go Travel bag?
And now for the fun part – we are actually super excited to be traveling for a wedding to Charleston, SC. I would love your recommendations on things to see, do and eat there! We have never been and I am excited to add another state to my list of places traveled! Can’t wait to see hear your “must-dos!”
