Are you a first-time parent about to embrace their first journey with your baby? We’re very excited for you as this is among the best of times! Traveling with a newborn or infant does carry its own set of responsibilities and worries. But believe us – if you are well prepared and equipped you are in for a treat! Your child’s first journey is a fun and adventurous time for them, regardless of your choice of destination.
If you’re stressed and worried about this first-timer, there’s no need to! We’re here to help and share with you helpful information on how to pack and what to bring along. It’s normal that you may be a bit sceptical at first. After all, there’s so much to think about. The fact is that infants are sometimes the best travel buddies. They are calmer than toddlers and can’t really complain about much, they don’t require a separate bed, and you don’t even have to purchase their own plane ticket.
So let’s see how we can turn your first travel adventure together into a real piece of joy!
Having your hands full and at the same time trying to absorb the beauty of a new destination or walk through crowded places is a real nightmare. You can’t even get on a public transport bus comfortably if you have to carry your little one in your hands all the time in places where the trolley can’t fit or is not allowed in.
The baby carrier is a perfect solution to these problems. You can select one that can be worn on your front and as a backpack carrier when necessary for extra flexibility. Your baby will still be able to feel the warmth of your body and will feel protected and calm. Choose a versatile and comfy option that suits every possible need you may encounter on your travels.
Try our multifunctional breathable baby carrier, which offers four ergonomic positions for optimal individual comfort.
A travel stroller
If you’ve never traveled with a baby abroad you might be surprised to hear that not all strollers are suitable for airport travels. Even if you decide to bring them along in the family car, options that are too heavy are not the most convenient.
Thankfully, the market offers specifically designed baby strollers that are extremely portable, light, and easy to use. You won’t have to make compromises or be sanctioned for weight limits, you’ll still be able to carry along everything you need, and most importantly – your baby will be happy and safe.
A travel crib
Teaching your little one to sleep in the crib and appreciate this spot as their personal space was hard enough. You don’t want to ruin everything just because you can’t bring the crib with you while you travel. And you don’t have to.
Travel cribs offer a solution as they are easy to put up and take down, they are light and convenient to carry with you while traveling, and are comfortable for your baby. Make sure that the mattress pad inside the crib is nicely positioned on the ground instead of leaving space between the ground and the mattress. This could make your infant feel insecure and restless. There are additional carry cases for most travel cribs that make everything even easier.
A diaper changing pad
One inevitable part of traveling with your baby is having to change their diaper in places you may not have imagined before. You may end up comforting your baby with a new diaper somewhere where the hygiene is not exactly ideal. To be prepared for such scenarios and keep your baby clean and calm, pack a diaper changing pad with you.
The changing pad offers convenience and isolates your baby from the surface. You can use it on airport floors, tourist attraction sights, bathrooms, and more.
Baby stroller hook clips can save your life! The biggest concern for parents of infants is how to do so much with only two hands. When traveling, you often have your phone out for photos, carry along a cup of coffee, or shop for souvenirs. All of these items need to be somewhere close and reachable at an instant.
Instead of trying to manage everything in your hands, why not rely on these durable, multi-tasking stroller clips? They are easy to attach to your stroller and can help you carry so much more without moving a muscle. You can safely carry diaper bags, your purse, clothing, and so much more with a simple clip technology.
Stroller protector bag
Your stroller can be exposed to a lot when you travel. It could get wet or damaged if you are flying with it and have to leave it with the rest of your luggage. There is a chance that it takes some serious hits and you want to protect your investment as much as you can.
Packing a stroller protector bag will ensure that you preserve its condition at its best even when you have to move it around or transport it from taxis to hotels, rental cars, and more. Most protector bags are equipped with flexible straps that allow you to easily carry your stroller. Not many people consider this a must-pack item when it comes to traveling with a baby but it does make the journey safer and easier to enjoy.
A neck wallet
With so much to bring on your adventure, it is easy to misplace important documents. Especially if you are planning to travel by airplane, your personal ID card, passport, or other documents for you and your child must always be close by.
To avoid having to go through your luggage and stressing, bring along a neck wallet that can safely store all of your important documents and money. This is also the perfect solution to allowing liquids to accidentally reach your documents. With everything on your neck at all times, you can dive into sightseeing without worrying about a thing!
The worst mistake you could ever make is to go traveling without your baby’s pacifier. After all, babies love two things the most – their pacifiers and cuddly toys. The interesting part is that they get easily attached to their items and if you forget their pacifier and plan to buy a new one while you travel – things may not unfold very well.
Your baby is likely to get extremely irritated without their pacifier and the whole journey could easily be ruined. To avoid this, choose a baby animal pacifier that your infant won’t be able to stay away from! The product combines both a stuffed animal and pacifier, making it the top choice for your little one. Enjoy calm and happy travels with this item right next to you.
Baby’s favorite blanket
Traveling to a new location could be a bit stressful for your baby, especially if this is their first time away from home. Surely, they’ll feel comfortable having you as a parent with them but that doesn’t take away the uncertainty of the unknown surrounding environment.
One of the best ways to comfort them and make them feel at home is by bringing their favorite blanket from home. Observe your child and see which blankets they tend to enjoy more. You can have your eyes set on a few and pack one of them for your travels. They will associate the blanket with a place they are comfortable in and familiar with and are likely to be less stressed on your adventures together.
Baby nappy bag
Most parents want to look stylish on their travels. You are likely to take pictures to capture the beautiful moments and you don’t want to go back and wonder what you could’ve done to look better. Most baby nappy bags don’t offer a lot of style to your outfit. However, our designer baby nappy bags are an exception.
These nappy bags offer the perfect balance between elegance and functionality. They are extremely practical but also look stunning! With different colors to choose from and a range of options for carrying, these bags are a true fashion statement for parents. The best part is that they are waterproof and offer different compartments for maximum comfort and convenience.
