What is your must have toddler travel gear?
This post is sponsored by Regalo Baby, but as always, all opinions made are my own genuine opinions!
For me, toddler travel gear has to serve a big purpose.
We all know traveling with toddlers is no joke.
I mean, you already have to pack SO much when you bring your toddlers on trips, so might as well bring the best gear with you!
We recently went on a trip to Bend, Oregon where I put my must have travel gear for toddlers to the test.
During the trip, each one of my must haves served a big purpose and made the trip a little bit easier, which is everything we want, right?
Here is my list of Toddler Travel Gear I can’t live without.
1. A Real Stroller
I know it’s tempting to bring an umbrella stroller when you’re traveling, but trust me. The storage and convenience of your real stroller will be something you crave if you leave it at home!
2. Backpack Diaper Bag
You’ll likely be doing a bit of exploring during your travels, so make carrying what you need easy on yourself! I can’t live without my backpack diaper bag. It is a must for life with toddlers. Especially traveling with them.
3. Spill Proof Cups
No matter which way you’re traveling, you’re going to want liquids to stay in cups. I’d say especially if you’re traveling by car.
4. Your Car Box
I have talked time and time again about the magical car box. Now, you’d need to improvise and make this into a bag if you’re traveling by plane instead of the car, but same rules apply. It is a box that holds extra diapers, wipes, games, snacks, toys. ect. Basically a box filled with everything you’d need on the fly. In the car, I keep it between my twins car seats so that I can easily pull from it while we’re traveling.
5. Tablet w/ Toddler Safe Case
The toddler safe case is a must for the tablet, but I suggest bringing a tablet with your littles favorite movies pre-downloaded for any trip. It makes the traveling so much easier. Especially in the car, where your littles are trapped in their car seats and might not want to nap.
6. Noise Machine
When you’re traveling with toddlers, sleep time is one of the hardest things to come by. I like bringing bits from home to make sleep come a little easier, like their sound machine from home.
7. Tylenol & First Aid Kit
Safety first! This is something I forget to bring often, but always end up needing. I recommend keeping them in your diaper bag so you always have them on hand!
8. Lots of Snacks (and more snacks)
Well, who can have enough snacks? My toddlers live off of snacks. For some reason, when we’re traveling they become bottomless pits! Do yourself a favor and bring allllll the snacks.
9. Regalo Baby My Cot(s)
One of my favorite multi-use items to bring traveling with toddlers is our Regalo Baby My Cots. Like I said earlier, sleep is SO hard to come by when traveling with toddlers. We recently started using the My Cot at home as a transition to toddler beds, and it makes the perfect on the go travel bed for littles.
Not only is it lightweight, but it’s compact and easy to travel with. During our trip to Bend, Oregon we used the My Cot for sleep and nap time in our camper. Other ways you can use it while traveling is as a bench at the park or on the beach, as a makeshift bed at Grandmas, as well as a sleeper in hotels.
There is so much functionality with the Regalo Baby My Cot, which is why I think it is a toddler travel gear must have.
Check them out here! You’ll find they come in an assortment of colors as well as two different sizes. I opted for the standard size and have found they work perfectly for my toddlers. Plus they are good for up to 70 pounds, so they can use them for a LONG time!
There we have it, my list of 9 toddler travel must haves.
What would you add to the list?
I hope this list of my favorite travel items for toddlers helps you out on your next trip and calls out exactly what you need to bring with!
