Some people scale Mount Everest to get a life-affirming rush, others take to the high seas and sail around the world or tour the wilds of Alaska by dogsled. But when you’re a parent, you don’t have to go so such extremes. The thrill comes merely from endeavoring to Travel With Baby.
It doesn’t matter where you go—a trip to grandma’s house, a week at the beach—the sheer jolt of lifting the constraints of babyhood and jetting away can make you feel like you’ve accomplished a major feat. Okay, it might not be of bucket list proportions, but the degree of difficulty is surely the same and so is the feeling of reward.
The only trouble is with babies come gear, a mountain of gear, quite possibly more gear than you’d ever need to get to the top of Everest. Fortunately for parents today, there is a slew of stuff on the market made especially for travel that nicely lightens the load and makes life on the go way easier. Thus leaving you with little to no excuse not to hightail it out of town to somewhere far, far away! Go for it!
Have a baby that loves to hang out in mommy’s lap? (Who doesn’t?) This seriously ingenious invention let’s you safely secure the baby to your lap so you can go hands free. Great for long flights and restaurants. No more playing pass the baby so you can eat.
