Check the strollers, and bring the boosters as carry-ons? (I know they can't sit on them on the plane). Or should I put the boosters in one of my luggage bags and check them as one of our carry ons as well? Thank you! You could buy a couple of the Southwest big blue bags and put both umbrella strollers in one, and both boosters in another, or else put the boosters into regular luggage and check them. Among your group - i saw your later reply that there are several adults and the two kidws - each ticketed person gets two bags. Then if they are lap children you get two extra checked bags for baby gear. Even for older kids you get an extra allowance for strollers and car seats specifically, so these items could be +2 and +2 checked bags for you plus the regular 2 per person. I would say pretty common to check them, either at the gate if you'll be using the strollers in the airport or else curbside the whole lot of it for easier navigation at the airport. Not much reason to carry onto the aircraft unless they are fragile in some way, or valuable - regular checking is I believed reported to be over 99% baggage gets delivered, gate check must be nearly 100% and carryon is obviously up to you, 100% in theory. If fragile then gate check or carry on.
