Traveling with a baby can be DAUNTING. What to pack? Getting through TSA? Time changes? How do you keep them from screaming the entire flight?? There's a LOT to navigate. On this week's episode of Bottle Service, Kelly Stary from @Traveling.with.babies helps us out! Aside from the invaluable advice, insider tips, and TSA Hacks, Kelly and I discussed some essential must-haves for traveling with your little one. To make it easy for ya, here they are, all in one place!
#1 The Slumberpod
We kick off the list with the Slumberpod, a blackout tent that creates a perfect sleep environment for your little one and gives you the freedom to move around your hotel room without disturbing their slumber. It's a game-changer for traveling parents. Kelly and I agreed this is the most important piece of travel equipment we own!
#2 The Doona.
Next up is the Doona, a stroller and travel car seat all in one. Say goodbye to the hassle of lugging around separate items - this innovative gear makes getting around, whether in Ubers or on foot, incredibly convenient.
#3 Pack & Play
For a portable and easy-to-assemble crib, the Pack & Play takes the lead. It folds down effortlessly and sets up in seconds, providing a comfortable and secure sleeping space for your baby. Pair it with the Slumberpod for a dreamy setup.
When dining out in places without highchairs, the Travel Highchair comes to the rescue. This compact and foldable accessory gives your little one a seat at the table, making mealtime a breeze wherever you go.
#5 Travel Tub
Make bath-time on the go a breeze with the Travel Tub, a blow-up tub that's easy to fold and inflate. It ensures your baby can enjoy a relaxing bath wherever you're staying, without the need for bulky baby tubs. This is one of Kelly's top picks!
To-go Bottles are a game-changer for busy parents. These bottles separate formula and water, allowing you to make a bottle on the go without any mess or hassle. Perfect for travel or everyday outings.
