Easiest way o carry baby?

Posted by on Feb. 10, 2013 at 12:45 PM

So, I am going on a flight coming up but planning on bringing on luggage besides carry-on. I am planning on not bringing a stroller so I am having to plan out a way of carrying her. First I thought I would carry her in my sling, but with the added bags my shoulders will be spend before the flight even takes off. Then I remembered I have a moby wrap and then thought that I would carry her in a back wrap and do it that way, but that also causes issue due to the time it takes to wrap it.

I need help deciding what to do to carry her around.

 Baby Bjorn? (or other brand) They can be a little pricey but I found one for a very reasonable price at a consignment store.  They are easier to get on / off than a sling or wrap and also easier to get baby in / out of.  Also, have you considered one of those little luggage cart things (I don't know what they're called - basic little fold-up thing with wheels) so you don't have to carry the bags in addition to the baby?

I'd do the ergo all the way! That is a necessity in my eyes!

You don't have to pay for it. Depending on who you fly with the first carry on is free and the second bag is $25 (again depending on the airline). The carry on is free and you can actually check-in the stroller at no extra cost. I've travelled more than a few times these last two years with the kids. Lol. For me personally the stroller is easier. I can strap my son in and use the extra storage space below to put my bags in and run like a crazy woman through the airport. Lol.

the airline I am using I have the choice of picking her carseat or stroller. I have a stroller waiting for me when I get to my location.

Go with the sling!! Just balance baby and bags. Remember you will be trying to get put together in the seats on the plane. There really isn't room to negotiate anything but the sling. I recently did this with my son at 15 months. Plus once you get to the gate you can put other bags down for a while.
