Best Travel Gear for Kids
One of the biggest concerns for families is knowing what kids travel gear will keep your kids safe and happy on the road.
In this list, we have shared family travel products and travel accessories for kids, with the purpose of keeping them safe and entertained.
None of these items are for the parents, we have separate guides on travel gear for adults.
We have arranged this guide in age order, starting with baby items and moving on to older kids and tweens.
1. Portable Travel Crib
When it comes to traveling with a baby, we don’t travel with a lot of stuff such as portable high chairs, eating utensils, or other kids travel accessories that are not essential because they only add weight.
Most restaurants and hotels will have high chairs, if not just sit them on your lap or in their pram. You may feel you can’t cope without a portable high chair. No problem. Do what’s best for you and your family.
But one item we wouldn’t have been without was a portable crib, which we took to New Zealand when Savannah was 8 weeks old. It was brilliant and it came on many road trips with us, or sleep overs at a friends house.
Check out this travel crib and portable baby playard which is small, compact and lightweight making it easy to carry.
They are super easy to put together and comfortable. The breathable mesh is good for the bubs and makes it easier for you to keep an eye on them.
We also didn’t bother with a baby monitor since we were always with our kids and it’s easy to keep an eye on them in a small hotel room, but you do what feels right for you.
2. Baby Wipes + Hand Sanitizer
