Great review of the Aeronaut and Checkpoint Flyer over at Simply Bike (http://simplybikeblog.com/?p=7998). Read the full review here. (http://simplybikeblog.com/?p=7998)

"The beauty of the aeronaut is that it is the absolute largest it can be while still qualifying as a carry-on bag. This meant that every aircraft, from the huge international carriers to the tiny domestic ones, allowed us to bring the bags on board and we were able to fit them into the carry-on compartment above our seats. This was especially important to us when flying overseas after our San Francisco trip, as we had our baby’s bed in the Aeronaut, to which we wanted access as soon as we arrived in Romania."

I love how she used the Snake Charmer as her diaper pouch! Such a smart idea! :)

I'm not sure I saw the professional clothes for "T". I also didn't see any other shoes so I assume they just had what they wore and nothing else. My running shoes always take up one side of my Aeronaut and bulge into the main compartment. The yoga mat and the crib were new ones to me.

That's extremely impressive! Bravo that they were able to fit everything in AND take a baby with them, I would've thought that having a baby on a trip meant having to check a bag instantly as babies tend to be messy creatures and you would have to pack a full wardrobe plus enough diapers to outfit all the babies in California into a roller.

Someone else mentioned using the Snake Charmer as a diaper pouch before, the "baby charmer" as it were. I can't remember who. Still a smart idea, though.

Solution: dress looking lightweight running shoes.

Dorayme used the brand for her children, I think. They are made in Corvallis, Oregon! :)
