Planning to travel with your baby this summer and unsure of which baby summer travel essentials you should take outside of the usual?
I’ve got you covered!
These recommendations won’t include things such as diapers, wipes, travel bed, sunscreen, etc. Instead, it’s going to include some not-so-typical items that you may forget about packing, but later find that they would have been beneficial to have.
Let’s get started.
You won’t want to travel again with a baby and/or old kids without the Ayla Vacuum.
It is compact enough to fit into your diaper bag easily while being powerful enough to clean up spills and messes effortlessly.
Messes happen when you travel with babies – it can’t be avoided. However, this lightweight cordless vacuum helps you keep things clean when traveling whether the mess happens on the plane, in the car, or in the hotel.
Cloud b Travel Soothing Sound Machine
If sleep is a problem at home, it’s only going to be tougher to tackle when you’re traveling.
The Cloud b Travel Soothing Sound Machine helps make sleep come a little easier for your little one when they’re in an unfamiliar environment.
The heartbeat setting mimics the comforting sounds of the womb and it also includes three white noise options.
If your baby is already used to falling asleep with a sound machine at home, the Sleep Sheep is a more compact way to keep up with their sleep routine.
If you haven’t already invested in a backpack diaper bag, Lublu Baby is one that you’ll be glad that I put on your radar.
This backpack diaper bag makes it super easy to carry a baby (even in a carrier) without having a hand dedicated to carrying the diaper bag.
It features 16 compartments, looks great, and is certified by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
Lublu is literally everything parents always wanted in a diaper bag!
The Joolz Aer Travel Stroller is safe, functional, and stylish.
It features eco-friendly fabric, includes an adapter for car seat compatibility, has a one-handed quick fold, includes an extra-large sun guard rated UPF 50+, AND only weighs 13.4lbs.
Leave your bulky travel system at home (or) replace it altogether with this stroller.
Lev Baby Convertible Romper
If you’re like me you love dressing your baby up when you’re out and about.
However, most baby outfits these days look cute, but they aren’t so comfortable for babies.
Well, let me introduce you to the ‘Poppy’ convertible romper by Lev Baby!
It’s a romper + footie, which makes it easy to walk in when needed, and the pop-on and pop-off foot allows the baby to be warm and comfortable when napping.
Plus, if you’re into matching outfits like me, they even have options for mom and dad.
With three older boys and an infant baby girl, I’ve been through some baby carriers during my parenthood journey and Baby K’tan is the best one I’ve come across in 12 years.
It’s super easy to put on and functions as a sling, wrap, and baby carrier.
Plus, it looks great!
It fits just like a t-shirt and is comfortable for both mom and baby. You don’t have to do any wrapping, buckling, tying, etc.
A convertible booster seat has so many functions when traveling with a baby.
It can serve as a place to feed them when in the hotel or restaurant, a place to keep them secure while they interact with older siblings so you can go to the restroom or shower, or a place to play.
I recommend this one because it’s easy to clean AND it is affordable enough to purchase when at your destination and use it for the duration of your stay without having to travel to and from with it (for those traveling by plane).
