No, this is not about checking my kids into the cargo hold.  

I am a veteran traveler, but I have not done much flying since the new baggage rules took effect, and this will be the first trip that I will have taken my two toddlers along for. The flight will be with AA.

My issue is trying to determine what items they will assess baggage fees for. I'm not sure how many regular luggage items I will be taken, but I understand the rules there. My questions revolve around the two car seats and the one stroller we will be bringing.

The two cars seats (Recaro Young Sports) are not especially large. We want to bring one of them into the cabin, but we don't mind checking the other one. Will we get dinged for the checked seat, or would it be better to bring it into the cabin even though our older daughter won't really need it?

The stroller is a McLaren twin-seat stroller. I don't think they ding for that, do they?

I have flown CO a few times...they have never gotten me for car seats getting checked...I usually bring the stroller down to the gate with us...then fold it at the end of the jetway...they put it under for the flight and when we get off the plane the stroller is waiting in the jetway at our destination...

Hope that helps!
