Travel - FAQs

  1. Can I wear my baby in the carrier when I go through security?
    It depends on the TSA guard whether you can wear baby through security. One Ergobaby employee traveled extensively when her daughter was under 1 year and it was about 50/50 whether they made her take it off. That being said, FAA does NOT allow carriers to be worn on the plane, so we recommend taking your car seat for baby on the plane.

  2. Can I use my Ergobaby on the airplane?
    While the baby carrier is an indispensable item for ease of travel, especially in airports, FAA regulations ban the use of baby carriers during take off and landing during flights. We recommend use of an FAA-approved car seat on the airplane.
