I’ve been traveling with my babies for years now, as hard as it is for me to believe that. Taking the family to New York City was the first time we’ve traveled with all four, all together though-something that felt like an incredibly monumental feat.
There are a few products that I love that we used the entire trip, and I’m more than happy to share what worked for us with small children in tow.
We’ve had this stroller for years, but this is the first time we’ve used the Gate Check Stroller bag. The entire stroller fit inside and we gate checked the entire thing.
The kick boards are absolutely essential for families with multiple children, too.
The Nuna Sena
As far as travel beds are concerned, I personally can’t get behind something that I have hard time putting together. Not only was the Sena easy to put together and take apart, but it is a great size and perfectly functional in a small hotel room as well as a larger apartment. Evvie slept so well with her own space and we all were grateful for that.
This is another product that I’ve had and used for as long as I’ve had babies. This particular model is the ErgoBaby Performance Collection Ventus, and it’s the first time I’ve tried it. It’s incredibly lightweight and easy to wear under coats and outerwear-a critical component when traveling with baby in colder temperatures. I wore her the whole time we were in the city and we were both comfy and happy.
The infant insert works well when transferring her outside of the carrier too-it keeps her warm and contained, even when in the arms of new people (including Santa).
A huge part of travel is walking, so anything that I can do to make that a little bit more fun is absolutely on my priority list. All three big kids took turns riding around on the scooters through airports and along side us in the city (without complaints!). We simply gate checked the scooters and we were good to go.
I keep a stash of these little wax covered colorful sticks in my diaper bag at all times. They are great for keeping busy hands entertained at restaurants and on planes, with out any mess and with a whole lot of imagination.
I adore this hand knit, alpaca wool jumpers for Evvie. I knew that she’d be warm and cozy while wearing something soft, breathable, warm, and completely adorable.
