    Carseat is free to check, the stroller I took with us and they put it under the plane when we got to the gate.

    Eta: I held Melissa in my lap. Her carseat is huge, it wouldn't fit in the airline seat.

    I checked the car seat and they took the stroller as we loaded the plane and we had to pick it up at a different spot than the luggage - I think we picked it up as we were walking out the walkway thing that connects the plane to the terminal. 

    I was bf so I did that on takeoff and landing for his ears.  If you bottle feed, I would call to see how they deal with that because I know some liquids aren't allowed.  Anything for your son to suck on (pacifier or whatever) should work. 

    I rode in taxis and shuttles with him on my lap.  We did take the car seat for the rental car though.

    I was discreet and no one said anything.

     I checked my stroller and carrier at the gate, and they took it under the plane. It was waiting for me when I got off the plane.

    You will need to check your stroller. Did you pay for a seat for your son?

    Usually you don't have to pay for lapchildren.

    depending on the airline i have only flown on delta. but children under two will be on your lap and you don't have to pay for them. You can check the carseat for free and use the stroller which will be checked when you get to the plane.You are encouraged to travel with only as much formula, breast milk, or juice in your carry-on needed to reach your destination. You are allowed to bring gel or liquid-filled teethers, canned, jarred, or processed baby food in your carry-on baggage and aboard your plane. and trust me to save the trip no one will care that you whip out your boob if that means they don't have to listen to a screaming baby the whole plane ride! I assume you can call your hotel and ask if their shuttles will have a carseat or you have to use yours
