    Slings or a baby carrier is alright right up until t hey are toddlers or whenever you feel like carrying them.

        A sling is ok at nine months. I would get a moby-type wrap or something like a baby Bjorn I think they are called (on the shelves at Walmart and Target). If you are renting a car once you get there, I think they provide car seats, otherwise it might be good to check the car seat so you have it. Make sure you check airline policies, too.

          When we traveled to Canada, my family gathered a car seat and pack 'n play to save me from having to take them with me. They may have even borrowed a stroller for me. Do you have friends or family who could do that for you where you are going?

          I believe the airline gives you the option of buying a seat for your baby. If you did not buy a seat then you will be holding Aaradhya, unless a seat frees up that they are willing to give you for her, which would be very rare.

          If you take your car seat, I would just check it as checked baggage because you will need one once you arrive at your destination for traveling in a vehicle. Do you have any connecting flights to worry about? Because it will be a hassle to transfer your luggage, sometimes you don't have to but in the past I have had to retrieve luggage from one conveyor belt and put it on another. It's something to ask your airline.
