When traveling with an infant strategic planning is key. You want to be able to have everything baby needs, but also not have to haul 3 suitcases through the airport. Here are our picks on baby gear that will make travel with baby a little easier.
BABY TRAVEL PRODUCTS FOR HOTELS OR EVEN GRANDMA’S HOUSE
Everyone remembers to babyproof the house but what about the hotel? Keep a packet of socket covers and doorknob covers in your suitcase. Trust us they will come in handy.
My Little Seat Travel Highchair
My Little Seat
The My Little Seat travel highchair easily slips over any chair. Secure your baby with the 5-point harness and let them have their own seat at the table while on vacation. This highchair is for babies who can sit unassisted up to 35 pounds.
Lotus Travel Crib
The Lotus travel crib is easy to fly with and comes in a backpack carrying case. It’s simple to set up and only takes as little as 15 seconds. The quiet side zipper door will allow you to cuddle and nurse your little one, then leave them be once they’ve fallen to sleep.
OXO Tot On-The-Go Drying Rack
The OXO Tot drying rack is compact and takes up little space when storing it in your diaper bag or backpack. It also includes a soft and firm-bristled brush and detail cleaner. The rack accommodates bottles and breast pump parts, so you can clean and dry while traveling.
BABY TRAVEL PRODUCTS FOR TRAVEL BY AIR OR CAR
Baby B’Air Infant Travel Harness
The Baby B’Air flight vest gives security, comfort, and peace of mind to parents flying with babies. Just pass your seatbelt through the loops in the back of the vest to keep your baby safe in your lap. The vest will keep your baby secure during turbulence and will leave your hands free. The only downside? Current FAA regulations don’t allow it to be used during take-off and landing.
Kolcraft Cloud Stroller
You’re not going to want to push a bulky stroller around while traveling. The Kolcraft Cloud has a lightweight design, coming in just under 12 pounds, making it perfect for any trip. It also has an easy one-hand and self-standing fold. The Cloud offers a reclining seat with a 5-point harness, large storage basket, removable child tray, and a parent tray.
MOBY 2-in-1 Baby Carrier + Hip Seat
The MOBY 2-in-1 Baby Carrier + Hip Seat combines the support of a standard baby carrier with the assistance of a hip seat. It allows hands-free comfort and convenience. The click and go design of the hip seat also provides up and down ease with toddlers, allowing your little one to have crawling and learning to walk adventures with an easy carry when needed.
Kalencom 2-in-1 Travel Potty
The Kalencom 2-in-1 Travel Potty is big enough to hold your toddler, but still small enough to travel with. It can be used as a standalone potty or toilet trainer ring, so you can use it anywhere your travels may take you. The legs lock out and into place for your little one’s safety. The travel potty also has a built-in pee guard to prevent splashing. It comes with three disposable liners and a carry bag.
Diaper Changing Station
Dad’s don’t always have the luxury of a changing station in the men’s room. The Baby Change-N-Go diaper changing station hangs on the wall or door, therefore making life easier for the dad changing diapers on the go. It also creates a private space to change in and you don’t have to worry about germs that may be left behind on a public changing area. The changing station holds baby’s 40 pounds and under. It folds to fit in your diaper bag or backpack when not in use, so it won’t take up space when packing and traveling.
Homga Breast Milk Cooler Bag
The Homga bottle cooler can hold up to six large eight-ounce bottles. The airtight temperature control will keep your breast milk fresh. You could also put an ice pack in the cooler to keep your milk fresher for longer, depending on the length of your trip.
Kozii Travel Warmer
The Kozii Travel Warmer warms your milk, formula, and food while you’re on the go. Store hot water in the stainless steel, insulated water container, then pour it into one of the warming cups to heat a bottle or food when your baby is ready to eat. The warmer requires no electricity or batteries and is BPA, latex, and phthalate free.
Britax Car Seat Travel Cart
You have considered that once you get to destination X you will need a car seat right? The Britax travel cart allows you to attach your car seat and wheel your baby around with ease. It’s also compact and requires no assembly or breakdown, making it easy to store in overhead bins.
