We leave to go on vacation tomorrow. we are flying to CO. im nervous taking a 3 month old and a 7 year old alone!

I finally got bf to agree to let me check a bag. i got all 3 of our clothes in 1 bag and it only weighs 47lbs!!

When you fly do you check bags? Do you only do carry ons?

 It really depends.  When I fly with kids, I always check bags.  It is too much of a hassel to stroll bags around the airport with kids in tow.  When I travel alone domestically or just with DH, I usually carry on, but when we come back, we have to check since I tend to go on spendy sprees while on vacation.  When we travel internationally, we check always...but it is nice because we generally are given our first bag free.

Safe travels!!  You will do great!  The hardest part for me is the security, but they are usually super helpful esp. when having kids.
