Traveling with babies is an adventure in itself, and there are some things parents can bring along to help keep travel running smoothly. By staying prepared for meeting the needs of baby in any setting, parents are ensuring that they and the baby have a good time. Here are a few essential baby items to pack for travel.

A pack ‘n play like the Graco Pack ‘n Play Tot Bloc Playard offers the baby a safe place to sleep and play in hotel rooms or hosts’ homes. They’re the perfect place to set the baby down for a moment with a couple of toys without creating the need for baby proofing a non-baby friendly space. The fun colors and images will help keep the baby engaged and safe.

Travel System
The FastAction™ Fold Click Connect™ Travel System by Graco ensures the baby will have a car seat for safe car and air travel, as well as a comfortable stroller for walking. Since the car seat clicks into the stroller, there’s no need for separation until items are gate checked, decreasing the chance of the all-important car seat being lost or damaged through a checked baggage system. It also allows for a smooth transition from car to stroller is the baby is asleep.

The Evenflo Natural Fit Soft Carrier provides a way for the baby to be carried and soothed by mom or dad. With three carrying positions and an ergonomic fit, parents can be sure their baby is supported and comfortable. Since it’s lightweight and fitted with padded shoulder straps to help distribute the weight, the person doing the carrying will be as comfortable as baby.

Pacifier & Clip
Pacifiers are great for soothing babies and helping them keep the pressure in their ears balanced during take-off, landing, and long car rides with elevation changes. The Dubon BPA-free Silicone Pacifier with Holder and Clip is the perfect travel pacifier. The clip ensures that it won’t hit the ground becoming dirtied or lost if the baby spits it out, and the holder will keep it clean when placed into a pocket or diaper bag.

Diaper Bag
The Peg Perego Borsa Mamma Diaper Bag ensures that parents will have all of their baby essentials at hand. It is made from quality materials that are easy to clean, and has a stylish design that moms and dads will be happy to carry. The Borsa diaper bag can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack and has pockets made for diapers, wipes, bottles, cell phones, and pens. It was even designed with a specific money and key holder making it a great bag to carry while traveling, eliminating the need for an extra purse or wallet. With hooks for attaching to a stroller, parents can be sure this bag is the ultimate in utility and style.

The stress of a crying baby adds to the stress of travel, but keeping baby happy is easy when parents travel well-equipped. With all the things that can go wrong during travel, parents can make sure taking care of their baby isn’t one of them by packing these high-quality items.
