 My grampa is on his deathbed. He and my family are in CA and I live in NC. My mom and my brother are trying to find a way to get me out there for the funeral. Here's the thing. I have to take my two year old and my 4 month old. By myself. How am I going to fly from here to CA alone and get through security and gate changes with my two kids, one in a stroller and my sons carseat? I know that someone here has had to have done it. I need advice! HELP!!!

Question: Does my two year old need to be in a car seat on the plane? I know he needs his own seat now, and I thought that he needed to be in his car seat in his seat, but everyone is telling me to check his car seat?

Thanks so much for your help ladies. It's still a very daunting task, but now I feel a little more confident. I really can't thank y'all enough. blowing kisses

Double stroller, back pack, and see if your relatives know anyone who they could borrow a car seat from so the seats are already in the car when they pick you up. If you are renting a car, then look into renting the car seats from them

What about using a baby carrier and a stroller and checking everything else. The airport can keep your stroller up in the front of theairplane so you can have it when the plane lands.

Pack a backpack instead of a diaper bag. It will be easier to carry.

You can do it. Just take your time. Get there early and take your time. Getting frustrated is just going to make you feel worse about the whole situation. Check as many bags and things as you can. I don't know about the stoller but if they will sit it at the front of plane that is great..
