Anyone who’s travelled with kids knows what a nightmare it can be – especially if you don’t have the right supplies on hand. Whether by plane, train, or automobile, these 6 genius items make travelling with little ones so much easier.
Try as we might, babies do things on their own schedule, and that includes eating. This portable bottle warmer plugs into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter outlet to let you heat up a bottle while on the road. That way baby’s milk is already the perfect temp when you reach your next pit stop. $25, available at Walmart
Great for keeping kids entertained on the road or in the air, this cute colouring set comes complete with various materials used to complete projects inspired by some of the greatest artists in history. It’s all contained in a handy carrying travel box to safely contain supplies while on the move. $39, available on Amazon
Whether you’re in a restaurant, at a resort, or outside, this handy little portable chair makes it easier for your wee one to get a seat at the table. It attaches to most tables and folds for easy storage. Plus, it comes with a little handy travel bag. $100, available at Babies R Us
As any mom who’s attempted breastfeeding can attest to, getting your babe into a comfortable position for a feed can sometimes be a struggle. A nursing pillow is a great way to help find the best position. This handy travel nursing pillow features the same design as its stuffed counterpart but inflates with air for space-saving and ease of portability. It still wraps around your body to keep baby securely next to you but folds flat to easily tuck into your diaper bag or luggage. $50, available on Amazon
These genius little bottle caps quickly and easily attach onto any standard water bottle to instantly create a hydration solution for younger and older kids alike. Available in a choice of different colours, they easily tuck into your purse or diaper bag so you don’t have to worry about dragging along an extra reusable water bottle for your child. Around $12, available on Amazon
Recommended by a fellow parent, we LOVE these packing cubes – especially when packing for multiple kids. They not only keep all your things neatly stored and conveniently organized (hello, undies and socks!) they also make it simple to keep kids’ clothes separate and easy to find. Plus, they’re also small enough to fit into most drawers when you get to where you’re going, so you don’t have to fully unpack. $25-30 for a set of four, available on Amazon
