Traveling with little ones isn't always easy (more “trip” than “vacation” vibes), but a few choice items will make everyone's time more enjoyable.
Hands-down the number one item for ages 0-2. Creates a nice little sleeping area, especially if you are sharing a room with your little one. Hotels will usually be able to provide a crib or pack-and-play, but the BabyBjörn Travel Crib is also a great option.
Sturdy enough for everyday use, this umbrella stroller folds up into a compact, purse-sized shape (with a strap!) that is easy to carry-on but, importantly, doesn’t count towards your allowance. Add the Ride Along Stroller Board for double the transport power.
We love a monogram, as impractical as they may be for hand-me-downs. But in this case we take a firm stance. Packing cubes are travel essentials, and having each person’s monogrammed makes sharing a suitcase both chic and easy.
If, like most Gen Alpha tots, yours are a bit spoiled with their sleep environment (hence the need for the aforementioned SlumberPod), this white noise machine is super easy to pack and gets the job done.
