What is the TOTEaTOT weight limit?
The recommended maximum weight for a child using the TOTEaTOT is 40 pounds. The TOTEaTOT will in fact easily support more weight than a 40-pound child, but it can become awkward to pull that much weight behind you, in addition to the weight of the rolling luggage.

Is there a size minimum for the rolling luggage?
We do not have a minimum size requirement for the rolling luggage as it depends on the size of the car seat you are attaching. The TOTEaTOT has been designed, tested and used with numerous makes, models and sizes of rolling luggage.

How easy is the TOTEaTOT to use through security, when you have to separate the diaper bag, car seat and carry-on suitcase (and my child)?
Your question is a good one. Getting through security swiftly even for an adult traveling alone can be a challenge. When you add children into the mix, plus additional gear, it quickly becomes a stress trigger.

The TOTEaTOT allows you to easily walk up to the security checkpoint with all of your possessions including your child. By unsnapping the two quick-release buckles (which can be done with one hand), the TOTEaTOT may be removed thereby separating the car seat from the rolling luggage. The rolling luggage and the TOTEaTOT are ready to be placed on the conveyor belt for the x-ray machine, and the car seat too once your child is released.

As you may well be aware, parents using with strollers in the airport must also remove the child from the stroller at the security checkpoint, empty the contents from the stowage area of the stroller and place it on the conveyor belt, as well as any other gear, including the car seat they are carrying through the airport.

How long does it take to attach the TOTEaTOT to the rolling luggage?
The TOTEaTOT takes only a few seconds to install. So, even after passing through the airport security checkpoint, it is simple to reattach the car seat to the rolling luggage. We suggest that before you leave for the airport, you adjust the straps to the correct length for your combination of luggage and car seat.

How big is the 'diaper bag'? Can it fit 12 hours worth of diapers, wipes, change of clothes, passports, tickets, etc?

My daughter is still in her rear-facing infant car seat. Does the TOTEaTOT work with this type of car seat?
The TOTEaTOT will not work with an infant car seat. It is designed for rear-to-forward facing convertible car seats or forward-facing car seats. In any case, the FAA recommends that children under 40 pounds be fastened in a car safety seat while aboard an aircraft.

Do you have any recommendations on what suitcase and car seat work best with the TOTEaTOT? Any recommendations as far as make/model/size/weight or description of either would be helpful.
The TOTEaTOT works well with almost all standard design rolling luggage and car seats. It's been tested and used on various makes and models. It was designed using Samsonite rolling luggage and a Britax Roundabout car seat. However, as previously mentioned, it's been used with many different makers of luggage and car seats with great success.

The size or weight of the luggage is inconsequential for the TOTEaTOT. Of course, the luggage does need to be small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of the aircraft.

As we recommend with all of our customers should you decide to purchase the TOTEaTOT, it is best to test the TOTEaTOT with your luggage and child's car seat before heading to the airport. Doing so allows you to set the straps for the proper fit for your combination of luggage and car seat. As we all know, things can get hectic at the airport! With the straps adjusted properly, the TOTEaTOT can be installed in seconds.
