If you’re planning to go somewhere with your baby, make sure you bring all the needed travel essentials with you. Baby travel accessories are designed to provide your bundle of joy with maximum comfort and amusement while helping you keep your little one safe.
The Perfect Baby Stroller and Carrier
The baby stroller will be your loyal companion from day one up until your baby is a toddler. That’s why you should choose one that’s durable and suitable for every terrain. Most strollers today are made from 100% recycled PET fabrics which makes them eco-friendly baby travel accessories.
The perfect baby stroller should be lightweight and easy to fold with enough room for all the extra stuff you bring for the baby. When buying, choose a baby stroller that has air-filled tires, an all-wheel suspension along with brakes and it is smooth and easy enough to push. An adjustable footrest is preferable for when your baby is a little older. The inside of the stroller should be soft and comfortable made from baby-friendly materials that do not contain toxic and harmful chemicals. Some baby strollers are even car seat compatible, so you get everything you need in just one compact item.
Among the array of useful baby travel accessories is the carrier which is very soft and ergonomic and allows you to keep your baby close to you which is important for creating a strong parent-child bond. You attach the carrier on your shoulders and then also on your waist. Your baby will be safe in the carrier while you will have your hands free to do something else. The carrier will provide you with a full range of motion, meaning that you’ll still be able to do plenty of things around your home or walk outside, go to the store, etc.
The carrier should have a waist belt and shoulder straps soft and elastic enough to help relieve the pressure off your back and shoulders and allow you to carry your child up to the age of three. The fabric should also be flexible enough to provide your baby with a natural and comfortable position. It’s best if the carrier is adjustable in order to properly support the hips, back and neck of your baby and so that you can use it still when your child gets older and bigger. Also, pay attention if the material is easy to clean and whether it is machine washable.
Baby travel items like strollers and carriers come in many different colours and designs so you can find your perfect match even if you’re into bold colours and edgy designs.
The Must-Have Baby Kit and Bag Rider
To stay organized as much as possible, you should consider getting a baby kit which is a bag designed to hold all baby essentials. Many types of baby kits are available on the market and you can even choose ones made from luxurious grained leather that will be the perfect accessory even for you. This kit is easy to carry around and you can carry it either in your hands or as a crossbody bag.
It should feature a deep pocket that can hold nappies, zipped compartments for all the creams, nail clippers, hand sanitisers, spare clothes and much more. Its sides should be elastic and able to hold baby wipes at the same time allowing you to easily access them. It should also be easy to clean and maintain, preferably machine washable.
Exterior pockets for phone keys and cards are desirable and are a very handy feature for parents. Keep in mind to always carry clean bottles and formula (if you’re bottle-feeding), baby toys for your kid to play with, an extra blanket for when the weather gets cold, baby oil or powder for diaper rash, a hat that will protect your baby from the sun or a beanie for cold weather.
The bag rider on the other hand is an accessory that you can easily place on top of your luggage and it’s the ultimate kid’s travel solution designed to simplify family travel for parents. It should be very easy to transform a two-wheeled carry on suitcase into a four-wheeled kids travel seat. And also safety is very important so pay attention to the capacity of the bag rider. It should be able to support a 15kg toddler.
Don’t Forget About the Portable Baby Bed and Wipes Holder
The portable baby bed has one main purpose, to provide your child with a good night sleep while making it easy for you to transport and assemble it anywhere.
Baby travel items make the everyday lives of families easy and this bed is the perfect travel accessory. It only weighs about 6kgs and it’s very compact when folded. It’s a practical carrying case with easy-to-grip handles. Just put it in the back of your car and you’re ready to go. Also, the assembly of the bed is very easy and you can do it with just one stroke. It’s suitable for your kid from the moment the baby is born until it turns 3 years.
When you’re choosing children beds, make sure that the materials they are made of are strong, easy to remove and wash in a washing machine. Polyester and trevira are some of the most commonly used materials for portable beds.
The wipe holder comes really handy when you’re on the go but it can also be used around your home. It usually has the capacity to hold about 25 wipes and the best thing about it is that it keeps the wipes from drying out while being compact and convenient to use even in your car or wherever you decide to go. It features an easy opening which means you can easily pullout a wipe and it also has a hanging hook that allows you to hang and attach it literally anywhere. It’s the most convenient baby accessory money can buy.
