We go on a lot of weekend trips, and aren’t afraid to take the kids out of town, even when they’re infants. Though we’re light packers and bring only what we need, we understand that there are certain things that make life easier, when you’re traveling with infants.
1: The Bag to Carry Everything
The JuJube Be Prepared bag is one of those bags that has enough room for everything I need to carry. It’s the perfect carry on for flights with toddlers and an infant. It makes for a stylish overnight bag when you’re away for an adults only weekend and it is a fantastic diaper bag with so many different sections, that you’re always going to be able to find what you’re searching for.
2. The Seat at the Table
Phil and Ted’s Lobster High Chair is one of those things that you’re going to use at home to save floor space, one of the things you’re going to use locally at those restaurants that might not have a high chair ready available and you’re going to want to bring it along to the campground, to give infants a seat at the table. It’s durable, easy to pack, and comes in a great, basic design.
3. KidCo Peapod
The Peapod is perfect for little kids that are coming along on trips, that are too small to use a cot, especially while you’re camping – this is perfect. Easily brought along on adventures, with the flat folded up design, it’s perfect for kids 1 year+, and includes a sleeping pad, so they’re not sleeping on inflatable mattresses. In addition to being a great pop up sleeping space, we loved it for beach vacations, because of the built in shade.
4. Lullaboo Travel Bassinet
This Lullaboo travel bassinet is one of those great options for packing, because you can squish it into luggage, but also doubles as a bassinet area, or simply an area to lay infants down if you’re staying in a hotel.
5. Skip Hop Wet Bags
There’s nothing worse than arriving home from a tropical vacation, or a weekend away where a lot of quality time was spent in the hotel pool, and having wet swimsuits and clothing. Skip Hop wet bags are a great option for parents to put those little swimsuits, swim diapers and other wet items into – keeping the rest of your luggage dry when you’re traveling with infants and toddlers. We still use these wet bags for the kids swimsuits when we travel – and they’re six and three.
We’ve been travelling with Olivia since she was just a few months old, and I’m sure there are even more exciting trips in our future. What travel gear and accessories for kids make your life easier when you’re adventuring?
