Traveling usually involves a lot of walking. And though traveling moms will certainly have a stroller, a baby doesn’t always want to lay in the stroller.

So to help mom and dad carry their child while walking around a new city, this hip carrier comes in! Because it leans on their hip, it’s a lot more comfortable to carry their child.


#3 Portable sleeper

A portable sleeper is another essential item for families who travel with a baby. Because sleep is super important for small babies.

The sleeper allows the baby to sleep wherever. And because the shape of the sleeper doesn’t deform even when it’s rolled up or folded, it’s perfect to take on the road.

Remember what I said about walking and traveling?

That’s right, traveling families will probably walk a lot with their babies. And though, the hip carrier is perfect for shorter distances, for longer distances, another option is needed.

And that is where this 4-in-1 carrier from Infantino comes in.

It can be used to carry a baby in four different positions (on the back and the front), so mom and dad have plenty of options to change it around depending on what their baby needs.

A monthly milestone blanket is a beautiful way to keep track of a baby’s growth in the first year. Babies change incredibly fast before the parents realize their little ones can sit up straight and start walking. So to not miss a single moment of their baby’s growth, they can take a photo at the beginning of each month to see all the changes their baby has gone through already.

And for that a milestone blanket is perfect. And for travel lovers who love the mountains, this is probably the best blanket.

Because their little one is going to spend a lot of time in the mountains too and he or she sure is going to be a little adventurer just like his parents.
