Travel Q&A: What are your travel must haves for kids?


Uppababy G-Lite for umbrella stroller (one of the lightest on the market-8.8 lbs) and really easy to fold up

The Bugaboo Bee is a more travel friendly version of the larger Bugaboo models, folds easily, and allows for easy storage. You can carry on the seat portion if you haven’t hit your carry on allowance.

Babyjogger's City Select Tandem double stroller another that's easily dismantled and with great configurations




Graco Pack n play for naps on the road, especially when cribs aren’t provided

Phil and ted's travel bed for young babies (up until around 8 months)







Baby bjorn and ergo baby carriers are fabulous







Car Seat Case:

For car seats, a car seat carrier case is ideal for safe, water-resistant protection in baggage.

For all of you sleep-obsessed parents of little ones, this product (which I think was designed by a Brit and is probably better sized to their cribs but still works with my Baby Bjorn travel crib, albeit not perfectly) was hard to find but truly hits the mark in many ways. I dangle my video monitor through a zippered window on the top of it. I can't figure out why this is the only one on the market (or at least the only one I can find) everyone else's kids sleep better than mine on the road??

To slightly amend my post, I actually have this one which is more expensive and I think has more layers of fabric so you can customize more:
