Traveling with an Infant

Explorer C

I’m traveling with my 4 month old alone. I’ll be gate checking a car seat and stroller. I notice that infant carriers that attached them to someone  are prohibited on the aircraft. Is one allowed so that I can bag my car seat before entering the plane? Also can I wear it around the airport? Thanks in advance

If you mean Baby Bjorn or similar apparatus, I believe the restriction is for take-off and landing, but you could use it in the airport for sure, and I've seen others use them during mid-flight, in fact just yesterday. I think this would be fine for boarding, etc...just not during the actual take-off period.
