One of the most useful items on the trip is this hand-me-down stroller. It doubles as a car seat and is approved for use on an airplane. For Zane’s first flight we took advantage of a $99 companion ticket special and got him his own seat. This is good for a couple of reasons: he gets to luxuriate in his own airplane seat and just as importantly he has his own quota of check-in and carry-on luggage.

It looks a lot like a living room recliner on wheels.
