enforcing the one carry on rule?

I am usually a proponent of only carrying on a small bag w/a book and my wallet, really just a larger purse.<BR><BR>BUT....i am flying alone w/a child, therefore i need to carry a diaper bag and then i have several bulky items that i can't check, but won't fit in a diaper bag. (namely my video camera and a nebulizer to give my daughter her respitory treatments) <BR><BR>if i don't have a purse, will they give me a hard time w/having a diaper bag and a carry-on? the non-diaper bag is a messenger style book bag, so it's by no means a suitcase or even an overnight size bag. <BR><BR>what do you all think?<BR><BR>

Shouldn't think so...especially with some of the huge piles of stuff people get on with. We took carry on suit cases that were a little bigger than the 'allowed' size, but no one said anything. Why don't you cram it all into a little, 'regulation' size bag. Then they can't say a word.

I believe the rules state one &quot;carry on&quot; and one personal item, which can be a purse, daypack, camera bag, etc. So I can't imagine you will have a problem with a diaper bag and a book bag.

As of very recently, I have seen gate agents make passengers go back to the ticket counter to check luggage if they had too much or it was oversized.

First of all, I assume you bought a seat for your child -- and if so, he/she is entitled to carry-on bag(s), also. And I dare a gate attendant to make you check the diapers!
