The reality of traveling with kids is that leisure travel is not that relaxing unless you have a plan in place and the right gear to assist. 

From road trips, stays at the beach, or visits with family, here are a few products that do double duty. That means cutting down on what you have to carry while having twice as much fun. Here are some of our picks for traveling with young ones. 

Baubles and Soles

Why pack several pairs of shoes when one favorite pair will do it all? Designed to go from park to pool to party. Baubles and Soles are 100% recyclable vegan bio-based material derived from soy, made using a closed-loop process that uses scraps and old shoes and saves nearly 100 tons of excess from reaching landfills every year.  

Petunia Pickle Bottom

The Petunia Pickle Bottom Axis Backpack is a versatile, spacious bag that features a front zippered pocket, cushioned straps and separated top and bottom compartments.  It’s perfect for family travel because the insulated bottom section stores snacks and keeps them cool.  

Zoey Naturals 

This sunscreen uses effective and gentle formulas that are free of harsh chemicals and is safe for the environment. Founded by new parents, they enlisted the help of their dad, who has more than 30 years of skincare expertise, to create a line of children’s products for skin and body. The brand is known for being: hypoallergenic, free of harsh chemicals, naturally scented, and always made with care in the USA.  


KidCo Peapod Prestige

Parents with children ages 1-4 years old love the lightweight travel bed for its many features: fully meshed side walls, easy to pack carry bag, sewn in toy loops, internal storage pockets, and UV protection. At $84.95 it’s a great gift that can be found at KidCo and Amazon.

LÍLLÉbaby Complete Airflow Baby Carrier  

This carrier features full body breathable mesh to keep everyone cool. Use it in six different positions. Extra large zip pockets hold all your personal stuff while the two-way adjustable straps, extendable back panel, lumbar support, and adaptable seat create near limitless options for an ergonomic fit.
