There are so many fantastic products on the market that parents can use when travelling with their baby, and for retailers it gives you a good excuse to keep your customers coming back into store for their travel essentials.
We asked family travel content creators @travelwithmihai, what has made their life easier when travelling with baby:
“Travelling with a baby, be it flight, train or a long car journey can be pretty daunting. But you really don’t need to stop your travels just because you’ve had a child. We’ve found travelling with Alfie has made our experience even more special. We’ve just had to plan a little more and we also don’t travel as light as we used to!
One thing we have learnt since travelling with a baby is how important it is to plan and we really wouldn’t be able to do it without some of our absolute go-to travel essentials, being prepared really does help make things that bit easier. If we had to choose one product our absolute must have for travelling is a travel pushchair, we use the Didofy ASTER which is absolutely amazing. It’s really lightweight and fits in the plane overhead locker, so we don’t have to wait for the pram to come out with our luggage. People often ask where our pram is from when they see us with it on flights, because it’s just so simple and easy to use!
Travelling with a baby really doesn’t need to be difficult, parents just need to remember to pack their camera!”

The latest car seat from Swedish manufacturer Axkid, the Axkid ONE 2, has been deemed their safest car seat yet.
Experts in the field have discovered that rear-facing travel is up to 5 times safer than forward-facing, and should be enforced for much longer than the current laws suggest. That’s why the Axkid ONE 2 allows for rear-facing travel from birth all the way up to 7 years.
There are multiple features in place to ensure comfort at every stage, including sliding seat technology, an adjustable headrest, and the best legroom on the market.
Meeting the brand’s high standards of travel safety, the seat is i-Size approved, and the only rear-facing ISOFIX car seat on the market that’s R129 approved up to 125cm / 23kg. Plus, the ONE 2 has also passed one of the world’s toughest crash tests – the Swedish Plus test.

Every parent knows a reliable swim nappy is a baby travel essential and Splash About’s Happy Nappy DUO is a ‘must have!’
Space is at a premium in a suitcase and with little ones in the water throughout the day they’ll need lots of swim nappies. Ditching the disposables and opting for the reusable DUO makes sense; no bulky disposables to pack, it’s more economical and more environmentally friendly.
What’s more, the DUO takes the stress out of baby swimming; it’s completely effective against faecal leaks and uniquely, is scientifically proven to destroy any faecal bacteria before it enters pool water- and it’s this bacteria that’s responsible for holiday tummy bugs.
Made from soft neoprene that offers UPF50+ sun protection, the DUO’s vibrant prints won’t fade in the sun or chlorine, after care is simple and it dries quickly too!
