With possible exceptions like the C&O section, no pack animals
are allowed on the AT. This according to a blurb in Wingfoots guide.
As for hiking with a baby, my concern would be that it's very
difficult just to take care of one's own needs on a thruhike
let alone all of someone elses as well. I guess this applies in
'real' life also though.
