Versaille Trip - Recent Security Measures

Paris Forum, Travel Discussion for Paris - TripAdvisor - www.tripadvisor.com
We are two weeks out from visiting Paris, and super excited. We had planned on going to Versailles, and while doing research I see that they have instituted a terrorist security plan (according to their website). As part of that plan, security is being increased and instituted policies what can be brought in. And this is the part where I'm a bit confused. According to this page at

…chateauversailles.fr/plan-your-visit/vigipi…

"Large bags and suitcases are prohibited. No bags larger than the maximum size (55cm x 35cm x 20cm) will be admitted, and all bags must be checked and left at the left luggage desk."

So, they will admit you to bring in smaller bags, but they must be checked at the luggage desk? Am I reading that right? Wouldn't this effectively mean that there are NO bags allowed inside the palace? Why this is important to me, is that we have a 3 month old baby, and thus will have a diaper bag (bottles, diapers, etc) as well as a stroller. The policy says that I will not be able to carry the stroller inside, and will have to carry the baby, and it appears that I will not be able to bring my diaper bag with her bottles/diapers. Can someone clarify this for me? Based on these changes, if they are indeed what I am assuming them to be, I'm not sure we will keep Versailles on our plans, which is a shame because we were really hoping to see it.

Thank you in advance.
