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

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
We spent hours researching car seats for our children to make sure they are safe and secure in our cars, yet when we hit the road, we discover our enormous “tanks” of car seats are difficult to carry, hard to install and can get damaged during transit.

Bring on the lightweight car seats that keep our kids secure but are lightweight and easy to install.Read More
Traveling with a toddler for months on end meant we seriously researched portable beds and travel cribs to keep Aarav safe and sound as he slept in various hotels and Airbnbs. Our choice was the Lotus Guava, which you can read all about in our best travel crib recommendation, but there were some runner ups that may be the right fit for you. All of the following travel cribs are lightweight, pack up and travel well, and are relatively easy to set up. Most, however, are not made for babies under a year old; for that, you’ll want to review our list of best travel bassinets and baby beds.Read More
