5. Umbrella strollers rock.
Consider bringing an inexpensive umbrella stroller. While carriers are great for getting through security and taking hikes, it will save you a lot of back ache to also have a stroller available, and a compact, inexpensive option makes travel less stressful. As a bonus, toddlers love pushing umbrella strollers, which provides easy entertainment while you wait for your flight, (and, your airline will likely check your stroller for free at the gate).
