Another baby gear category in the Cribsie Awards that I am excited to explore is “The One Thing You Should Never Travel Without.” There are a few products on the list that are new to me and a few I always use while traveling. We’ve traveled with both of our boys since they were only a few weeks old. Traveling with children can be tricky if you’re not prepared, but there are lots of products on the market to help any trip with your family go much more smoothly. You can vote for your favorites in this year’s Cribsies.
These are the five finalists:
A Parent Company Go Anywhere Booster Seat is a portable booster in a stylish carrying bag that weighs just 1.4 lbs. It comes in pink and blue.
Bubble Bum is an inflatable booster that folds up in a little pouch and replaces a full sized booster seat while traveling, in carpool or for play dates. Sounds like I should throw a couple of these into my car!
Cares Child Aviation Restraint System keeps kids (22 to 44 pounds) safely restrained on the airplane without a car seat. It is certified by the FAA and fits into a 6″ sack.
Gogo Kidz Travelmate is among my #1 travel requirements. If you’re taking your car sear with you on the plane, this is the only way to go. We’ve used a gogo Kids Travelmate for every plane trip since our oldest turned two years old and it’s made getting through the airport a cinch. We get asked about the Travelmate every time we use it and I overhear someone saying, “I wish they had things like that when our kids were little.” I swear to you, EVERY time.
Phil & Teds Lobster is the newest and most stylish clip on portable highchair yet. I remember we had a clip on high chair for my baby brother (whose birthday it is today!), but it wasn’t anywhere near as portable and convenient as the Lobster. It also had little duckies or something printed on the vinyl so…
Do you have any of these? Thoughts? Which one would help YOU while traveling?
