You can gate check the stroller. That means the agents at the gate put a tag on it, you leave it just outside the airplane and they bring it back to the same spot when you land.Thanks for your help. Question about gate checking though, do they store it with the rest of the luggage beneath the plane? I'm trying to decide if I need to invest in a cover for the stroller. What do you think?
Flights are full these days. It's unlikely there would empty seats. I would definitely buy a seat for the little one. Install the car seat on the plane. If you don't bring the car seat, you'll have to hold her during takeoff and landing.
Thanks for your help. Question about gate checking though, do they store it with the rest of the luggage beneath the plane? I'm trying to decide if I need to invest in a cover for the stroller. What do you think?You can buy an inexpensive cover, hope the link below works. They tend to toss these items so if you want some protection I would cover it. We are traveling with our 21 month old granddaughter with a McLaren stroller and I purchased a heavier cover for it.
If she has any sinus or ear issues, ask your pediatrician for an antihistimine she can take before and during the flight. I know from experience that if the ears get blocked, it feels like a knife is in your head....seriously! The bottle or gum is ok, but it's best to be proactive, IF she has any issues like that!Thanks for the suggestion. She doesn't have any sinus or ear issues that we're (her pedi and I) aware of but I agree, it's always better to be proactive. It never bothers me too much but once I was in so much pain that I was in tears for majority of the cross country flight, east to west coast. I was miserable and I'd hate for that to happen to her. I'll mention it to him when we see him next.
