Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or it’s your first big family holiday, travelling with a baby means having to think about packing a few extras in your suitcase. From travel cots and toys, to compact strollers that you can easily carry onto a plane, we’re here with a few baby travel essentials that’ll make planning those adventures a breeze.
When you’re away from home, your baby will need a comfy, safe space to sleep. Travel cots are lightweight and easy to pack away – often into a handy travel bag – and make putting your little one down for the night whilst you’re on holiday a breeze. Some travel cots even come with changer tops so you can change nappies and get them dressed without a fuss, whilst bedside cribs is perfect for keeping them by your bed at night, then you can easily move it around your accommodation for daytime naps.
A lightweight stroller makes pushing your little one through airports, hotels and bustling streets a breeze. They’re easy to fold up, lightweight to push and steer, and fit into tight spaces – like car boots and luggage racks. If you’re travelling with a newborn, look out for a travel stroller that you can use from birth – like our award-winning Airo. With a comfy lie-flat seat, it can be used for newborns and toddlers, and it’s so compact that it’ll even fit into overhead cabins on planes.
Entertainment on the go
A happy baby means an easy journey. Until they’re old enough to play I-spy, giving your little one a travel toy is the easiest way to keep them entertained on-the-go – whether you’re in the car, on a plane or even exploring new places. Teethers will help soothe sore gums, whilst toys with hidden sounds and textures will keep their little fingers busy whilst you concentrate on getting through passport control.
Prepared for all weather
Whether you’re off somewhere sunny or going somewhere a little more unpredictable (staycation, anyone?), a parasol or rain cover that easily clamps onto your pushchair will be a lifesaver. A UPF sun shade will help keep your baby cool whilst protecting them from any harmful rays, whilst a waterproof cover will keep them cosy and dry – so they’ll enjoy comfy naps, whatever the weather.
New holiday outfits
Relaxing by the pool or exploring the great outdoors, your little one will need a few holiday outfits. From swimwear, shorts and t-shirts to dungarees and leggings, our clothing collection will keep them comfy on any kind of adventure. When it comes to getting dressed up the evening, we’ve got a range of occasion wear that’ll have them looking the part at dinner, and plenty of cosy pyjamas and sleep-suits that’ll keep them snug in their travel cot, too. And don’t forget those essential extras – throw a few extra bibs, bodysuits and a couple of cosy layers into your suitcase to cover all bases.
