Step 4: Taking Charge at the Airport

Navigating the airport when you don’t have a kiddo in tow is hard enough, but trying to figure it out with a little jabber bot who runs towards anything sparkly or bubbly is just that much more stressful. Fear not! If you have a plan and lots of snacks, I promise, it won’t be as bad as you think. First thing to note, is that you only have 2 hands. This is where the luggage issue comes into play. It is unreasonable to think that one person can get through to the baggage check and ticketing area with a bag for mom, a bag for baby, and a carry on, all the while carrying your child.

I always bring a stroller and I know that some people think this is more of a pain than it’s worth, but it helps me way more than it is an inconvenience. If you don’t have a use for the stroller, strap that baby to your chest with a ring sling or a baby carrier. This will keep your arms free…
