oy. and this is exactly why we don't travel by air.

We are traveling by air with our bunch of just 2, and we are renting a car, even for the short trip. That way the seats are always strapped and housed safely in the vehicle, and we don't have to worry about taxis or public transportation in an unfamiliar city. Good luck!


Whenever we fly with kids we always gate check our car seats. It can be a pain to lug them through the airport, but they are guaranteed to be there when we get off the plane. It would suck to be stuck at an airport if your car seats were sent off to the bahamas while you're in Chicago.


We refuse to gate check carseats since I don't want my seats lost or damaged in transit, especially when I may not see the damage. We buy both kids (even the baby) a ticket and take their seat along. Besides being safer on the plane (no, a carseat will not save them falling out of the air but it might on the runway where most crashes happen) it gives them a familiar, comfortable, TIED DOWN place to be and they're so much easier to deal with. We have a radian that folds and has backpack straps and a scenera that weighs only 9 lbs and we attach it to a rolling suitcase with the latch strap and a couple of carabiners and use it as a stroller through the airport. For your 4 1/2 year old I'd look into skipping the booster and getting a ride safer travel vest instead for traveling. More secure and much easier to pack.


Do you recognize that it is the best time to get the personal loans, which would make your dreams come true.


Thank you for all the suggestions! I think we are going to gate check all 3 seats using the car seat bags with shoulder straps. If we learn anything that would be useful, I'll post a comment after the trip! Thanks again.


One other thing - I did check with our airlines and there should not be any fees for the carseats. Alaska Airlines allows one carseat for each traveling child (ticketed or not). Southwest allows you to substitute a carseat for one of your two free checked bags. Just in case that is useful info to anyone else!
