Anxious parents traveling by plane
We are very anxious parents (at least the mom is) traveling to another state by plane with an 18 month old child. Mom is curious about logistics and germs. We need to travel with a stroller (city mini) and a car seat but my wife adamant about boxing the car seat and stroller so neither will be damaged or contaminated in the cargo hold. How does everyone else do this? Will we need to purchase a seat for our child? Will she need a car seat? How concerned are everyone else with checking the stroller at the gate? And then there’s all the other stuff: air pressure and baby’s ears, distractions, treats. Help!
