7 Travel Must-Haves for Babies and Toddlers

7 Travel Must-Haves for Babies and Toddlers

This post is in partnership with Best Buy Canada, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Traveling with an “almost” 18 month-old is no easy task. It takes careful planning and the right equipment. In fact, I would say the key to successfully flying with a toddler comes down to three things: getting to the airport early, planning ahead, and bringing the right gear (and lots of snacks). Below are 7 essentials that make the art of traveling a little easier and your vacation more enjoyable once you arrive. From the right set of luggage, a baby ride-on suitcase, a go-everywhere stroller, and a portable high chair that can fit in your back pocket!

When planning our trip to England we wanted to make sure to travel as light as possible.  Choosing the best gear from  brands we trust at the right price is exactly what I was looking for.  I’m also a huge fan of shopping online from the comfort of home and free delivery directly to my door.

Best Buy is having a huge online baby event from September 7th – 20th, where almost everything is on sale!  Carrying almost everything, they also offer FREE delivery for orders over $35!  Check them out here!
