Whether it’s a couple of nights to the in-laws or 2 weeks in Mexico, travelling with baby can bring its share of challenges, but the potential rewards can be well worth it. We easily found great information on creating a checklist and some fantastic advice on setting up your space or hotel room, but what are the few toys you can bring to make the biggest difference?
- A good play mat. Certainly it gives you the comfort of knowing your baby is lying on a hygienic space, but moreover it creates familiarity for baby. We used to take ours everywhere—even to the beach!
- A familiar toy. Nowadays you can rent a good stroller, but having that familiar stroller toy will put baby more at ease with their new surroundings.
- A multiuse bath toy. We like the stacking bath ducks from Skip Hop. BPA, PVC and Phthale free, they stack and float and direct water – very useful cleaning the sand out of baby’s hair!
