Children are interesting little creatures. Ask them to sit somewhere and nine times out of ten, they’ll be up and running around within seconds. Ask them to walk, and suddenly, they’re too tired. If you’re traveling with children, you know that a stroller is essential. If you have more than one child, a double stroller is a good idea. Sometimes, parents choose a single stroller and intend for the older child to walk while the younger child rides. However, most parents end up having to carry the toddler. That’s why a double stroller is a great idea for parents of multiples. With so many options on the market, deciding on the best stroller for your little ones can be tough. That’s why we’ve done the leg work and come up with the ten best double strollers for travel to help you make the most suitable choice.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
Whether you’re a first-time traveler or a globetrotting veteran, there’s one thing for certain: the way you pack can make all the difference. Because no one wants to be stuck lugging an unwieldy suitcase around the airport or through a new, foreign city. Fortunately, a good set of functional luggage can save you from that fate, ensuring that your trip is as stress-free as possible.
Through our years of traveling, we’ve discovered that it’s easier to tote a backpack than drag roller bags through airports, on escalators, and down cobblestone streets. We love traveling with backpacks, and we think you will, too. If you have a toddler or infant then obviously you’ll have to tote a lot of their baggage. But if your child is older, there’s no reason why they can’t carry all their travel supplies on their own. That’s why we’ve come up with this list of the best travel backpacks for kids and toddlers.Read More
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
We love snorkeling because it’s a great way to see underwater wildlife with your family. When people hear we have taken Aarav snorkeling, they think we literally went snorkeling with a toddler, which is not possible, he’s too young. He has, however, accompanied us on several snorkeling tours, including in the Galapagos, Bali, the Great Barrier reef, and Grand Cayman, among others.Read More
When our son Aarav was born, our friends who were well-acquainted with our love of travel told us to slow down until he grew up. But we
So when we decided to travel with a four-month-old, we knew not to expect smooth sailing. His first flight was rocky. But we learned. And with each trip we take, we learn even more. Though Aarav has now been on over 70 flights, we’re still learning. However, one thing we know for sure is that there’s no substitute for proper preparation. In the spirit of helping you prepare for flying with an infant, here are a few of our favorite tips for flying with a baby.Read More
We love traveling, and so does our son. Well, considering that he was only four-months-old when he went on his first flight, he hardly had a choice. He didn’t choose the travel life. The travel life chose him. His first flight was not easy, but we never expected it to be easy. Like any parent flying on a plane with a newborn, we were terrified. But we decided to go anyway.
If you enjoy traveling, it’s essential to make it a habit early on during your child’s life, both for your sake and your child’s. And no matter how long or short the flight, it’s best to be prepared. Here are a few things we’ve learned about flying with a newborn on a plane. Though they can’t guarantee you a hiccup-free trip, they’ll certainly help your flight be more enjoyable.Read More
Traveling with infants requires a good 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 car seats 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. If traveling with older children, you’ll want to review our list of parent-approved car seats and boosters for toddlers.Read More
