For those of you that follow my blog regularly, you have seen what an avid traveler Matilda has become. We have taken her all over Europe, and next week is her first visit to the United States. It’s no surprise that good baby travel supplies are important to us!
Part of our travel success with her does stem from her chill nature. Matilda is a very flexible baby and I thank God every day for this. But there are also a variety of items we heavily rely on to help in our baby travel success. In today’s blog, I will list out our favorites. I hope these prove helpful to those of you traveling with a little one.
My husband especially preferred the Moby Wrap when Matilda was smaller. It is comfortable and soft, and very easy to clean and use. He loved being able to wrap Matilda to his body during our walks throughout Milan. It also made it easier for him to enjoy his espresso in one hand and Parma ham with the other. 😆
The Fuel Baby bottles are a true gem. I stopped pumping one month ago and am so thankful for these bottles. The bottom compartment is for powdered formula and the top compartment for water. I have been able to prep multiple bottles well in advance and quickly pull them out as soon as those hungry cries start.
With our recent Easter road trip to Poland, the bottles were ready like the shake of a Polaroid picture! When flying to Naples, the bottles were prepped with the powder in advance, and after passing through security, filled with purchased bottled water.
Not only are these amazing for travel, but we also use them at night! The bottle is ready to go on the nightstand and as soon as we hear Matilda cry, we shake shake shake and feed.
I can’t forget to mention they are dishwasher safe! Phew!
A good friend of mine introduced me to this stroller and I am IN LOVE! This stroller is perfect for travel, especially plane travel. It is extremely light (15 kg!) and folds up small enough to be a carry-on item. It also opens up easily with one hand, so like the Moby wrap, you can use your other hand for something else….like holding your baby or if you’re my husband, eating Parma ham.
This stroller has already accompanied us to hilly and winding Sorrento, the rocky beaches of Capri, cobblestoned Vienna, and of course, throughout the streets of Zurich. It’s a real winner!
When I was still pumping, I found this to be the best for traveling. It is small and compact, comes with its own carrying case, and also provides a traveling cooler. It has a chargeable battery and was easy to clean.
On top of its travel convenience, it is comfortable. I didn’t need creams and there was no pain, no matter how often I pumped.
These are some of my favorite baby travel items and I would love to hear yours. Share your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.
