We are leaving on our first vacation with LO next week for a week in Hawaii. I'm pretty intimidated about the logistics of getting on the airplane with all the baby stuff. We need to bring our big stroller because she isn't quite ready for the umbrella stroller - I'm not even sure it will fit through the x-ray machine folded. So, we have a car seat (but didn't buy a seat), the stroller, the pump (I EP), and enough BM to last the day. We have a baby bjorn, should we just wear LO through security? Should I gate check both the car seat and stroller? Do I need to buy a car seat bag? Do the car seat and stroller count against our one carryon plus a personal item? We've rented a PNP and swing for once we get there, so at least we don't have to worry about those.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
