Our little one will be here in June! Meyer and I are well aware that our schedules will be thrown for a whirlwind. However, we will be starting our little one young and planning to take them on many travel adventures.
So, it should come as no surprise that the minute I found out we were expecting, I started researching all the best baby travel products.
From a baby travel bed to a travel bassinet for baby to travel-size baby products and even the best travel products for kids, I’ve found the best of the best!
Here are the best travel products for babies and kids!
The Best Travel Strollers
I could write an entire blog post on this because there’s a lot to consider when dubbing a single stroller the “best” for travel. After tons of research, I’ve narrowed it down to my top three travel strollers—each with pros and things to consider!
Brand new design was just released, only 13.7 lbs, single-handed fold, fits in overhead bin on planes, compatible with Cybex car seats, least expensive option.
Things to Consider:
If you need it for an infant, it is only compatible with Cybex car seats.
All-in-one car seat and stroller design, includes LATCH base for effortless use in your car, 17.2 lbs (more lightweight than traveling with a separate car seat and stroller)
Things to Consider:
Pricey, rear-facing only (until the infant is 28.6 lbs), so can only be used for infants until they’ve outgrown it.
Newborn to toddler design (with add-ons), folds to cabin baggage dimensions, includes padded strap and can be worn over the shoulder, only 13.6 lbs (14.5 lbs with newborn pack), can be used with car seats using an adapter.
Things to Consider:
Pricey, newborn set sold separately
Travel Products for Babies & Kids
For someone who is always on the go, it is super important for me to have something that is not only wireless but portable. Willow can go with you any time and you have the option to pump directly into a bag if you aren’t using it right away. You can also use a pourable bag, which is ideal for preventing messy spills.Shop Now
This monitor is really cool because it is an all-in-one camera that has hassle-free mounting. It works with your phone as a monitor and has smart technology. It will track a bunch of things like sleep, temperature, and humidity. This has a travel adapter so you have the option to take it with you on the road.Shop Now
You’ll often see inexpensive mirrors for cars in registries, which work. But, in terms of safety, I prefer a camera so I don’t have to look back. I’d much rather keep my eyes on the road and have a monitor showing the baby at all times. It also has night vision, so if you’re driving in the dark, you don’t have to worry about not seeing your little one. I love that it’s portable and wireless, so it’s not just for the car.Shop Now
The Baby's Brew
There aren’t a ton of ways to heat up a baby bottle on the go, so I love that this is a cordless, battery-operated device. It has adapters so it works with different types of bottles. You can heat up a bottle on the plane or in the car, and even adjust the temperature for formula or breast milk. It’s a really nifty gadget to keep in your diaper bag!Shop Now
A portable UV sterilizer for pacifiers is 100% a necessity in my mind. It always freaks me out how often babies throw their pacifiers out of strollers and onto the ground. This sanitizes in 60 seconds! It has a chargeable battery with over 100 uses on a full charge. It also comes on a key chain to keep it handy on your diaper bag. One note is that you cannot use UV on natural rubber, but it’s fine for silicone pacifiers.Shop Now
This may just be the cutest suitcase, EVER! Elli Ella’s kid-size luggage comes in a variety of colors (they even have a floral print). It can be wheeled (to and from airport gates, at the train station, or around the house). It has a retractable handle and a built-in elastic band so your little one’s favorite plush toy can come along for the ride.Shop Now
This is the coolest! This bundle includes 2 travel essentials in one box: a “BedBox” and the cutest backpack. The BedBox essentially turns an economy seat into a first-class seat (so cozy!), and the Crew BackPack expands for travels big and small.Shop Now
This is genius! Imagine a stress-free flight with your little one. The Flyaway Kids Bed creates a comfortable place for them to sleep and play on planes. It inflates in 90 seconds and deflates in an instant. It can be wiped clean and packs into a handy carry bag.Shop Now
