The ultimate summer travel list every mum needs!
1| Travel stroller.
When you are traveling, there is a lot to drag around with you. From carry-ons to diaper bags, it can be quite the hassle. That is why we believe you cannot travel easily without a comfortable and compact travel stroller. Stokke’s Xplory X Stroller is one of the best travel strollers there is. It is a very safe and practical option, as the high chair can keep your baby close to you regardless of the reclining position.
The canopy on Stokke’s stroller is easily extended, and it is extra quite for a smooth nap time. Also, the mesh opening allows air flow, and helps you keep an eye on your little one. With this stroller, you won’t have to compromise safety, quality, or style.
2| Baby carrier.
Using a baby carrier during your travels sure makes things a lot easier. You can hold your baby at all times, while also having your hands free to multitask. When choosing a baby carrier, make sure it is both safe and comfortable. You can tell so by the padded shoulder straps which provide carrying comfort for both you and your baby. Also, you need one that has a built-in infant insert along with an adjustable head support to keep your baby safe and comfy. The BABYBJORN Mesh Carrier is an ergonomic baby carrier which guarantees all of the above. And the cherry on top, it is a long term investment. As you can adapt it as your baby grows.
3| Breast pump.
You cannot put everything on pause when you are traveling, especially breastfeeding or pumping milk. Doing so will be uncomfortable for lactating mums. Therefore, you need a small and travel friendly breast pump to make the journey easier.
Choosing the best travel breast pump depends on many factors. Including motion technology, a quiet motor, minimal setup, and pause and play functions. All of these features are important to provide an easy and quiet experience when traveling.
4| Bottle and food warmer.
Baby Brezza Bottle & Food Warmer is one of our favorite items on this summer travel list. Why? Because it is the only warmer with Bluetooth and two warming modes to safely & evenly warm breastmilk and formula. It does so by using steam heat to rapidly and safely warm formula and baby food in no time. This preserves all nutrients unlike other heating methods.
5| Feeding bottles.
You absolutely cannot travel with a baby without having a couple feeding bottles on you. A feeding bottle is as important as your passport when you are traveling with a newborn baby. We recommend a baby bottle bundle when traveling. This bundle from Comotomo is amazing for traveling. It includes 4 bottles; two 5oz. bottles, two 8oz. Bottles. And it has 3 replacement nipple packs. It can’t get any better than this, right?
6| Formula containers.
Pulling out a big formula tin to prepare a meal for your newborn baby is not easy when traveling. In fact, it is not practical at all! Therefore, mums love formula containers as they make preparing bottles easier and quicker. This stacked formula milk container allows you to place 3 pre-measured portions of milk powder in different compartments. You can shut it tight to protect the formula from air and light. Thanks to its convenient form, it takes up little space in the purse and in the kitchen. It is truly ideal for traveling – or any outing with a baby.
7| Baby bibs.
Many mums worry about meal time when traveling. Especially when waiting to board a plane at the airport. All they think about is not to make a mess and waste time and effort cleaning. That is where Nuuroo’s Silicone Bib comes in handy. Not only does it have a cute print on it. But it also makes mealtime less messy with its front pocket which can collect all crumbles. Also, the silicone material is super easy to clean. All you need to do is give it a quick wipe and you will be good to go.
8| Travel cot.
When traveling with newborn babies, we need to make sure nothing disrupts their sleeping schedule. Especially if you are trying to build a healthy sleeping routine and habits. Therefore, you need a comfortable pop-Up travel cot that is both easy to use, fold, and unfold.
Bugaboo’s Travel Cot is exactly that and more. It literally takes 3 seconds to fold, and 1 second to unfold. The included mattress is thick and comfortable to ensure a good night’s sleep for your baby whenever and wherever. And the best part, it is Lightweight and compact to pack – so it won’t take much space in your luggage.
9| Fun toys.
Whether you are traveling with a 1 year old or a 10 year old, you need to provide entertainment. That is the only way to have a peaceful and tantrum-free journey. That is why it is very important to have fun travel toys and games on you at all times. Here’s an insider tip: brand new toys can keep kids busy and entertained for hours.
10| A docking station.
Finally, to ensure baby’s comfort when traveling, you need The DockATot Deluxe+. It is an award-winning multifunctional docking station for babies from 0 to 8 months old. This docking station is perfect for lounging, playing, resting, cuddling, diaper changes, and tummy time.
The whole idea behind its design is to mimic the mother’s womb to keep the baby happy and relaxed. This docking station is voted as a must-have baby product from parents around the world. As it can be used around the house or when traveling.
