posted in: Parenting | 0

Whether you’re hitting the road or island hopping, Spring Break can be exhilarating, but also exasperating. Fortunately, there are products that can help keep everyone comfortable and eliminate unnecessary travel drama.


Baggallini Carryall Tote

Every great trip starts with a killer bag. This Carryall is true to its name, with plenty of pockets and a large central storage area. One of the outer pockets can convert into a sleeve that your suitcase handle can slide through, which is very handy for running through the airport. The bag is available in several colors and patterns. Get it here for $83 on Amazon.

If your child is in a booster seat at home, they need to be in one wherever you may roam. This portable booster is a lifesaver. It easily installs on planes, trains, and automobiles and folds up when not in use. Get it here for $35 on Amazon. *only tested for use in the US.

trtl Pillow Plus Travel Pillow

$60 might seem pricey for a travel pillow, but if you have to sleep sitting up on a long flight, you’ll be so glad to have it. You adjust it, secure it around your neck and then your head rests comfortably without lolling about. Get it here for $60 on Amazon.

Cabeau Fold ‘n Go Travel and Throw Blanket

I don’t travel anywhere without this. When packed in its case, it serves as a comfy pillow for a tired child (or grownup). When open, it’s a cozy blanket that can be used in the car, on the plane, or in the hotel. When you’re on the move, the velcro strap allows you to affix it to a travel tote or suitcase. Available in gray and blue. Get it here for $20 on Amazon.

HYDAWAY Collapsible Water Bottle

There’s nothing good about being without water when you travel. You’re thirsty, your kids are thirsty…no one is happy.
