When you're travelling with a baby or young child, having the right equipment can make all the difference to help keep you moving forward on your adventure.
1) Nap time on the road
When you're travelling you might not know where you'll be when your little one is ready for their day time nap. Create a comfortable space that works for your baby, wherever you find yourself. They may be comfortable in a sling or baby carrier or they may prefer a buggy. Make sure the buggy can recline flat and has a canopy that fully covers your little one to shield them from the sun so they can have a peaceful undisturbed nap.
2) Lighten the load
Not only is a buggy perfect for naps on the go, it's also great for all day adventuring to save little legs and parents backs from constant carrying. Plus it's super handy for carrying all the stuff you bring or accumulate on your way. Choose a lightweight buggy that's easy to fold. Pick the one that'll be best for your adventure... a basic, lightweight buggy might be just right or you may need an all terrain buggy like the Baby Jogger City Mini GT that has wheels that can keep up with you if you're exploring the countryside.
3) Off roading
If you're exploring areas that aren't built for even the most all terrain of buggies, take a back pack carrier so you can go buggy free but give little legs a break. We love the Little Life cross country - really comfy for both child and adult and with lots of extra storage space.
4) Whatever the weather
Make sure you're ready whatever the weather has in store. In summer, always pack summer hats and sun lotion. Rain coats and wellingtons are all year round essentials especially in the UK where weather in notoriously unpredictable. Make sure you pack your raincover for your buggy. All our buggies and back pack carriers come with raincovers as standard so the weather won't stop your adventure.
5) Drive safe
If you're planning to drive at all during your travels, you'll need a safe age appropriate car seat. Check out our blog on car seat regulations in the UK . Make sure the car seat is compatible with your car, appropriate for your child and is clean and safe. Find out more about how hiremebaby ensures our car seat hire is a service you can rely on.
