Heading home for the holidays? These should help make getting there (and being there) a little less stressful.
The Great Schlep
For kids 22 pounds and up, use the only FAA-approved child aviation restraint, CARES. It weighs nothing and folds up into a sack you can toss in your carry-on.
The bad news: They don’t change the cases on airplane pillows between flights (ewww). Keep germs at bay with disposable pillow covers and rest comfortably.
Make diapers on the go an (almost) pleasant experience with Ah Goo Baby changing pad. The plush memory foam is super soft on baby’s bottom and sides fold out to keep hands off dirty changing tables.
Yes, You’re a Great Grandma
You could ask your mother to have diapers, formula, wipes, and toys waiting for you at the hotel. But why? Hyatt and Babies Travel Lite let you preorder everything you’ll need. Look, Ma, no guilt.
On the road or in the air, keep them quiet (and entertained) with a custom flannel board that folds into its own carrying case.
Silence the I’m-boreds by shipping a Kid’s Busy Box to your destination. Each kit comes with twenty crafts, easy directions, and all the supplies (crayons, glue, scissors) they’ll need.
Staying put? Give your kids a taste of the big, bad world with Putumayo’s Sesame Street Playground, which features songs from around the globe.
And no security lines in sight.
