Any mother can tell you the challenges that can come from traveling with a baby. Whether it's a simple trip to the zoo or a family vacation, traveling with children definitely requires a little added preparation. However, the same old method of packing any-and-all baby products into various diaper bags can be a bit cumbersome. With each passing year, new and innovative baby products have emerged to help make traveling easier. Not only will it lighten the load but it allows for increased function in must-have accessories. For moms with babies, it seems like there are so many things to remember in order to properly pack a standard diaper bag. However, whether you're off on a short trip or a week-long vacation, it can be well-worth it to look into some travel accessories to make the experience enjoyable for all. Take advantage of some of the products offered by Cozy Cover, BooginHead and Prince Lionheart to enhance your traveling experience.
Cozy Cover Portable Easy Seat
The Cozy Cover Portable Easy Seat has a retail price of around $18.99. With all the comforts of a high chair without all the bulk, this portable 5-point safety harness seat caters to infants up to 35 lbs. Whether it's forgoing the unsanitary high chairs offered at restaurants or wanting a portable high chair for a family vacation, this machine washable seat is ultra lightweight and has an adjustable back that fits over a multitude of chairs.
Any mother of an infant knows how difficult it can be to maneuver around all the added bags needed while traveling. While the diaper bag is inevitably filled to the gills, a smaller bag is used to hold soiled clothes and yet another bag is needed to hold formula or snacks. Adding on a handbag can become just a bit too much to lug around, especially for short walks around the neighborhood or running errands at the mall. PaciPouch offers a handy way to hold all the necessities with ease in accessibility, from car keys to debit cards. With an average retail price of around $8 and a number of trendy prints to choose from, this will definitely become any mom's go-to travel accessory to hang on their stroller.
Pack'Ems Reusable Snack Packs
The Pack'Ems Reusable Snack Packs have an average retail price of around $9.99 for a pair. The trendy chevron print and bold colors make for a snack pack that makes for a far better presentation than the standard Ziploc bag. This product is free of BPA, PVC or Phthalate and features a widened base that allows for a standing pack that's easy to use. Perfect for traveling with Cheerios for your little one, this dishwasher safe product not only will save on money but will become a favorite by any Mom who uses it.
Cozy Sun & Bug Cover
The Cozy Sun & Bug Cover retails for around $14.99 and comes in green, pink, orange or blue. Tailored to fit neatly over a standard-sized infant carrier, this allows for a much more functional way to keep bugs or harmful rays away from your newborn's delicate skin. Many parents opt for a large blanket to drape over their infant carrier to help keep away wind, sun or bugs. However, the blanket can often be a bulky item for the diaper bag and can be tricky to keep on straight while on-the-go. It features a breathable mesh, a pull-over flap for added protection, a self-supporting canopy and the ability to neatly fold away when not in use. Great for quick trips to the doctor's office but also very convenient for long road trips. The flap allows for a restful nap in the car, without worrying about harmful UV rays on your baby's delicate skin.
Cover Cover On-The-Go Changing Pad
The Cozy Cover On-The-Go Changing Pad is an upgraded alternative to the standard, thin and flimsy changing pad that comes as an add-on in most diaper bags. The average retail price is around $11.99 and comes in green or blue. The circular, contemporary pattern adds some eye-catching appeal and the extra large surface ensures your child is protected no matter what surface you're working on. There is added cushioning to give the pad a mat-like feel, rather than just a simple piece of fold-up material. The expandable pockets ensure everything stays organized and ready at a moment's notice. The surface is easy to clean and is free of PVC, chlorine and phthalates. The Velcro handle keeps it easy to reach and attach to almost anything. While you may not have all the luxuries of your changing table and station while you're out-and-about, that doesn't necessarily mean that a quick change has to be absolutely grueling. The Cozy Cover On-The-Go Changing Pad brings a bit of the comfort of home, without adding unnecessary bulk to your diaper bag.
SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe
SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe comes in a one size fits all style that neatly fits over all 3 and 4 wheeled single strollers, including joggers. The breathable material offers protection against the sun, bugs, wind and even light rain. This is great for the baby that often falls asleep while in the stroller and could benefit from a barrier from the elements. It also neatly folds away and comes with a designated storage bag. There are front panels that fully extend to allow for accessibility, while the sneak-a-peek zip feature is great for the occasional check on your sleeping baby. Whether it's a trip to the park with an older sibling, a stroll on an extra windy day or a trip to the beach as a family; SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe ensures your child is protected without all the nuisances that can come from being open to the elements.
Squeeze pouches have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially with the emphasis on organic and healthy foods. They have become the new go-to snack, whether it's the healthy fruit mixtures parents love or the easy to handle dispenser little hands easily take to. Purchasing a reusable food pouch allows for parents to fill each pouch with their very own mixture. Using the food processor to mix your child's favorite fruits (and maybe even some vegetables), parents can fill each pack to be ready for an on-the-go snack. The average retail price for Squeez'Ems is around $9.50 and is free of BPA, PVA and Phthalate. They can be used in the dishwasher, microwave and freezer and is able to grow with your child. As a baby, the pouches might be filled with yogurt and yet can still be used once they start eating lunch at school. This is a cost-effective travel accessory that every mother should invest in.
Click 'n Go Stroller Accessory System
The Click 'n Go Stroller Accessory System has an average retail price of around $20. The stroller is well used during the infant stage and this all-in-one accessory kit allows for added function. It includes 2 adjustable clips, an extra cup holder, a snack cup, 3 bottle holders, 4 hooks and even a mesh carrying bag to hold it all in. Whether you're at the mall and needing an extra pair of hands to carry all your shopping bags or you're in need of an extra cup holder for out on a long walk, this can increase the overall function of your everyday stroller.
