[Parentsgroup-list] traveling with an infant

Actually, the luggage cart thing seems to vary from airport to airport--if 
they see an overloaded mom with stuff, they may run it through before you 
and then let you put your stuff back on.  I've had that good luck in the 
(recent--ie since they stopped allowing water bottles) past.

You might look for a carseat bag with wheels at a baby-goods store.  Then 
you can zip the seat in (take out for security, sadly) with a blanket for 
baby, and just wheel it along behind like a suitcase.  Two carseats 
complicates things...but if you have seats for the kids, you'll need the 
carseats if they're plane-OKed.  If you check them, the airline pretty 
much says, "we guarantee only to get the thing there--if it's broken, too 
bad."  Just fyi.

Best of luck!
