Baby Travel Gear Giveaway!

I truly believe that the sooner you teach a baby to travel, the easier their lives will be. In a world where grandparents, friends and family live in many far away places, your kids are eventually going to need to go somewhere.

These items are some of my favourite pieces of baby travel gear that I have relied on in the past and still do today.

Cloud B

My first question whenever I meet someone about to have a baby is: “Do you have a sleep sheep?”. Introduced to me by a friend after the birth of my second child, I could not believe we had survived the first year of Will’s life without one. Cloud B, who makes the sleep sheep, specialize in toys that are also sleep aids. The sleep sheep is the most famous but we also love the Cloud B Twilight Turtle that turns your child’s room into a starlit night.

Baby Travel Gear

Although we no longer use the Sleep Sheep as the kids are 4 and 5, we still bring the Twilight Turtle on all our vacations. It is light enough and small enough to pack and gives the kids comfort in dark hotel rooms. It also works well as a nightlight they can carry to the hotel bathroom instead of leaving the noisy bathroom fan and light on.

Cloud B has introduced two brand new products to me that are similar to the Sleep Sheep and Twilight Turtle and just as wonderful.

Nighty Night Owl

The Nighty Night Owl is adorable and also plays 4 soothing sounds to help your child sleep. It is tiny enough to fit in a carry on, strap to a stroller or for a small child to hold and cuddle on a plane.

Tranquil Starfish

The Tranquil Starfish is similar to the Twilight Turtle but instead of projecting starts it projects a gently moving underwater effect on the ceiling. It also plays 2 sounds, a soothing melody or ocean waves. I have, in the past, had to download white noise apps for my iPhone to help drown out the background noise of loud hotels and guests in the hallways and love that the Starfish has the additional sound option. Be warned parents: Listening to the Starfish this evening almost lulled me right to sleep. If you are hoping to stay up, you might want to turn it off once your child falls asleep.

Smart Trike 4-in-1 Touch Steering Chic Tricycle

As a traveling mom with places to go, my biggest dilemma was having a child that hated being in a stroller. She would scream and kick and do just about anything to get out of every stroller we tried. In the end, we bought a tricycle much like the Smart Trike and found she would happily sit for hours on the bike.

Every mom or dad knows that if you can’t easily steer a stroller, wagon or in this case tricycle, you will not use it. Any kid mover worth its cost also needs to have storage.

Introducing the Smart Trike 4-in-1 Touch Steering Chic Tricycle. You will love how easily the 1 touch steering works and I can guarantee you will be able to steer with only one hand. At 10 months, your baby can start using the tricycle as they are strapped in to a comfortable high backed seat and the bike is completely controlled by you. At 18 months, the high back is removed by the bike is still fully controlled by you. Once your baby grows into a toddler, the pedals fold down so he or she can learn how to peddle while you steer. Once the child is ready, the parent handle can be removed and your 3 year old can bike freely. The bike also comes with a UV protective canopy, cup holder, and toy cell phone for the busy corporate toddler on the go.

  11. My children are long grown up but I’ll never forget the time my little daughter didn’t have any sleep animal along on a trip. We were in a small town and no stores open. I made her one out of a wash cloth and sewed on eyes and mouth. She was dubious but did go to sleep. Your suggestions look wonderful.

  13. I think I want one of those tranquil starfish for myself! 🙂 We are planning a 14 hour road trip this summer, and I’m already starting to stockpile activities for the car. I agree that the sooner your kids get used to traveling, the more freedom your whole family will have.

  15. Hi Sarah! I think it’s very important to bring babies traveling, to teach them how important is to explore the world, stimulating their curiosity. Will do the same with my baby when I’ll have one. 🙂
