How to survive AA flights… part 2

Our readers are so awesome and have even more excellent ideas on how to make it from the car to the gate in one piece with all your children in tow.

This suggestion comes from Sarah:

Sit N Stroll Car Seat: A car seat that has pop out wheels.  There are 5 ways to use the Sit N Stroll: rear facing car seat, forward facing car seat, stroller, dining booster chair, or faa certified seat.  Very cool, Thanks Sarah!

This suggestion comes from Kristen:

Pacback: Kristen sent in this suggestion for children who are already walking through the airport on their own but are still traveling with the car seat.  Looks much more comfortable then the alternative.  Thanks Kristen!

This suggestion comes from Tamara:

Trunki: This looks like a great idea for 3 and 4 year olds.  A small trunk for some carry-on must haves and it works as a fun ride to the gate.  Thanks so much Tamara!

Thanks girls!

  1. I bought a Magna cart from Sam’s that you typically use for moving boxes and such. I’m planning to use bungee cords to secure my daughter’s Evenflo Triumph car seat so we don’t have to carry it through the airport.

  2. The trunki falls apart too easily. We thought it would solve a lot of our traveling woes, but unfortunately the wheels pop off and it’s just not good for air travel.

  3. For traveling I use the Gogo Kidz Travelmate. It’s soo convenient. It’s an attachment for car seat with wheels and an telescopic handle. You can carry you child in the car seat like a stroller thru the gate. I love it!!!

  4. Have you looked into the JL Childress carseat backpack? It has great reviews on Amazon and I am considering it for a upcoming trip. Also, where can I find Part 1 of this article?

  5. the PacBack looks like something I’d love to get but their website has nothing, that I can see, regarding price or where to buy it.
