Baby Holiday Gift Guide: Part 2 – On-the-Go Gear

We’re back with our baby holiday gift guide.  Yesterday we decked you out with all you need in high tech devices.  Today we’re offering ways to keep things simple while you travel this holiday season and throughout 2016.  Check out our picks for the best on-the-go baby items for your baby holiday wish list:

traveling cribTraveling Crib:  If you are traveling this holiday season or at some point in 2016, one of your biggest concerns may be where your baby will sleep.  If relatives don’t have a crib or you’re not convinced of the safety of a hotel’s crib, you may want to bring your own.  While there are many portable cribs on the market, now several brands offer an easy to fold and carry traveling crib that is super safe for your baby.  No one wants to lug a ton of extra weight around when they travel.  Now you have options that won’t slow you down and will help everyone get a restful night’s sleep while on vacation.

portable high chairPortable High Chair:  Like the crib, you may need a sturdy place for your baby to sit and eat if she’s already working on solids.  This is where a traveling high chair may be useful.  Some simply snap around and underneath any chair, while others can latch directly to tables like this Regalo high chair.  Pretty nifty, eh?  Plus, the chair folds up into a sack so it is a cinch to carry.  Even when you’re staying in town, bringing your own high chair isn’t a bad idea to keep germs and grime to a minimum.

Blooming Baby Bath:
  Bathing your baby on the go is easier blooming baby baththan ever with the blooming baby bath.  And it’s pretty adorable too.  This little flower pod is super soft and fits right into a sink.  It can be hung to dry and folds up nice and neat for travel purposes.  It is also machine washable and comes in a variety of colors.  Don’t take any chances holding your slippery baby when you can pack this type of simple bath solution.

Bob Jogger StrollerSuper-Adjustable Jogger Strollers:  Whether you are doing some all-terrain traveling or just need to be mobile in your own city, a jogger stroller is a must.  These can get pretty pricey so it’s a great item to add to your baby’s holiday wish list.  What sets a jogger apart from other strollers is its supped up road-warrior wheels that can tackle a variety of turfs along with its sturdy build.  This BOB jogger stroller has a hand break that will help you keep your baby safe on hills and is also part of a travel system that allows you to snap your baby carrier car seat directly into the stroller.  Translation: never wake your baby to get her in and out of the stroller.

Wearable baby monitoWearable Baby Monitor:  This wearable baby monitor strap can stay in your baby’s travel kit to give you peace of mind on the road, or you can use it as a monitor alternative at home.  It comes attached to a baby bodysuit and gives you all the vital stats you need on your baby including temperature, sleep patterns and breathing.  Operating via Bluetooth, this innovative monitor syncs to your mobile device so you get real time data.  It is available in sizes up to 12 months.

maternity-sports-braDual-Adjustable Sports Nursing Bra:  When it comes to feeding your baby on-the-go, the name of the game is easy access.  Loving Moments has developed a unique sport nursing bra that keeps you moving smoothly while helping you nourish your little one, anywhere, anytime.  The one-handed nursing clasps allow you to drop down the front cups to breastfeed as with many traditional nursing bras.  But the cool thing about this bra is that the sides are adjustable to accommodate fluctuations in milk supply and breast size daily and throughout the course of your nursing journey.  The mesh racer back, inner sling and cotton/spandex blend will keep you comfortable and supported during exercise and beyond.

With all these great on-the-go baby items, you’re ready for any adventure this holiday season and beyond.  Enjoy your travels and stay tuned for the final part of our baby holiday gift guide series when we’re talking all about how to make your life easier as you nourish your baby.
