J. L. CHILDRESS ULTIMATE BACKPACK PADDED CAR SEAT TRAVEL BAG

This car seat travel bag is a must if you’re traveling by air with a carseat! 

While a lot of parents choose to check their car seat, it’s an extremely risky thing to do. You have no idea how the seat is going to be handled by airline personnel. Even a small drop can cause microscopic cracks inside your car seat compromising it’s integrity and safety.

This bag makes it easy to take your seat right onto the plane with you! It has super comfortable straps so that it can be worn as a backpack, freeing up your hands for your other bags (or kiddos!) It’s also padded for extra protection.

SNOOFYBEE PORTABLE DIAPER CHANGING PAD

JOOL BABY FOLDING TRAVEL POTTY SEAT

If you’re going to be staying in a hotel or at a relative’s house with a potty-trained toddler, this foldable potty seat makes it so easy! 

It folds right up and comes with its own travel case which can be packed into a diaper bag or suitcase. When you get to your destination, you just pop it onto the toilet seat using the attached suction cups.

POTTY SHIELDS DISPOSABLE TOILET SEAT COVERS

If you have a potty-trained toddler (or one who is still learning), chances are you try to avoid using public restrooms with them. When traveling, however, this may not be avoidable. 

These large toilet seat covers fit over the entire seat and sides of the toilet, minimizing the chances that your kiddo will touch any questionable surfaces. Bonus – they’re disposable, so once you’re done you simply throw it away!

TAKE & TOSS DISHES AND UTENSILS

These dishes are perfect for traveling! The best thing about “Take & Toss” dishes is the price… if you lose some in the hustle and bustle of traveling it’s no big deal!

They’re also extremely lightweight and the cups and bowls easily stack into each other, saving space in your luggage.

LARGE DISPOSABLE UNDERPADS (CHUX)

These large chux pads are a must if you’re traveling with an infant.

My favorite use for these pads are when utilizing a changing station. The large size is so big that it will literally cover the entire thing so there is no risk of your squirmy baby coming into contact with any germy surfaces! When you’re done, simply toss it away! (Note: you can technically use the same one MANY times! I just personally prefer to toss them after using them in really germy places rather than put it back in my bag!)

You can also use them to change your child literally anywhere else (eg: floor, sofa, car) because they have a waterproof backing that will protect surfaces from any mess.

J. L. CHILDRESS GATE CHECK STROLLER BAG 

If you’re traveling by air with a stroller, this bag is a must! Airlines can be pretty rough on strollers, especially if they aren’t small enough to carry on and need to be gate checked. This stroller bag can help prevent damage and fits both standard and double strollers. 

Plus, the bright red color will help it stand out if you’re picking it up at baggage claim!
