When you’re raising an infant, getting too little sleep for both you and your baby can be troubling. You can both use sleep to re-energize. If not, you both end up cranky and that can adversely impact your health and your baby’s development if it becomes chronic. That’s why it’s important for you to learn how to get an infant to sleep in a bassinet.Read More
Traveling with a baby (especially if it’s your first trip as a parent) can be intimidating. But, if you plan ahead and prepare for the unexpected, you can enjoy your trip just as much as you would without a little one in tow. One of the biggest challenges in traveling with babies is adjusting to time changes. If you’re just going to another time zone for a day or two, this isn’t too big of an issue.Read More

Traveling with infants requires a good travel car seat that can travel with you. Not only will you want and need a seat that keeps your baby secure when riding in taxis or on car-led private tours, the seats can also keep your infant safe in their own seat on an airplane. We reviewed the best travel car seats for infants that are lightweight, travel well, and are relatively easy to set up. These are for infants up to age 18 months. They all weigh less than 22 pounds and convert from a rear- to front-facing seat.

Read any of our blogs and you know we love to walk to get to know foreign cities. With a toddler, this requires a great travel stroller. Typical strollers can be big and bulky, which makes them difficult to manage when on the road — they have to be checked at the airport, they take up a lot of space in a trunk, a hotel room or a cruise cabin, and they are often too big to manage in crowded museums and attractions.
This is why a good travel stroller is necessary when taking a long trip, particularly umbrella strollers that are lightweight, compact and fold easily. The following collection of best travel strollers are low in weight and can travel well. Better yet, these strollers have high marks from parents who actually used them on trips.Read More
Holidays are for spending time with loved ones, eating calorie-dense foods, sappy Hallmark films, and gift-giving. But if we’re honest, oftentimes shopping for presents is more stressful than joyful. After all, what are you supposed to buy for someone who has everything? This is especially true when shopping for kids. Of course, you could always take the easy way out and buy another baby doll or race car, but gifts like these get played with for a few hours and then tossed into the abyss of forgetfulness. If you really want your gift to stand out, consider some of these travel gifts for kids. Not only are they fun and kid-approved, but they are super practical for children who spend much of their time on the road — or in the skies. Here are 22 of the best travel gifts for kids.Read More
For the past 2 years, it feels like time around the world has stopped. Life seems to have come to a halt, almost as if someone had pressed the ‘pause’ button on a remote control. But even though we’re living in times of uncertainty, the show must go on. Whether it’s for our own mental health or wellbeing, we must adapt to the new ways of living and moving around. Although we’re not in control of a lot of things, something we can be in charge of is the way we take care of ourselves and are proactive in following the recommended rules and regulations to minimize risk, while keeping healthy and protected. To help you plan activities, or make your transition to the new normality run smoother, we’ve summarized all the travel restrictions by state in the US.
Stay safe, keep healthy, and be kind.Read More
Our favorite thing about traveling with an infant is we could go practically anywhere with our son and he’d sleep. Dining out? A piece of cake as he would fall asleep in his car seat en route and then could sleep through the noise of a restaurant with the greatest of ease. And, when it comes to staying in a hotel, there is no need for an extra bed. All you need is a travel bassinet.
Before companies catered to babies, older travelers, so we have been told, would remove a drawer from the hotel dresser, pad it with a blanket and use it as a bassinet. Today, we have lots of travel bassinets that are safe, comfortable, and easy to carry.Read More
