going through the airport

Parents and children struggle finding a safe and comfortable seat to use while in the airport. Parents need to control a luggage carrier and a stroller or improvise.

UPON ARRIVAL

Family must wait at the jet way door to receive their umbrella stroller and all other stroller types would be picked up at luggage claim.

conclusion Taking a stroller through the airport requires several steps. The overall airport experience for families is difficult and strenuous.


w h at pa r e n t s s ay We bring a diaper bag, snack/bottle bag, the younger children each have a backpack, and at least one carry-on luggage. Our stroller is too small to fit everything.

Deciding which [type] of our strollers is suitable for each trip involves a great deal of calculation.

Going through the airport process with a stroller can be strenuous and a hassle to some.

My daughter likes sitting high up like in a shopping cart so that she can see more and she is more calm.
