I've got 6 kids and my wife and I decided early on in our marriage that we wanted our kids to be Travel Friendly. That meant taking them everywhere we travelled from the day they were born. It also meant researching and trying out the best products on the market to make Travelling with Kids Easier!


Get control of these things for Stress-Free Kids Travel:


  • Hygiene & Social Distancing

  • Comfort & Safety

  • Entertainment

  • Sleep & Calming Aids

  • Prep for the Unexpected



Hygiene

Potette Plus

We love to take long road trips and there’s something about getting 5 minutes into a journey that just makes my kids want to go potty. We found the perfect solution and its a portable potty that you can whip out pretty much anywhere.



Potette is what you’re looking for as its super compact and can fit right under your car seat or even in your wife's handbag.


  • It has stable legs that lock into place.

  • Rubberized base to prevent slipping

  • Then it comes with 3 super absorbent, leak-proof and easy-to-use disposable liners. Once you run out you can order more from Potette. These liners are great for catching the number 1/2 and make it easy to discard.

  • Suitable for ages 15 months and up to 50lbs when used as a traveling potty


Why I like it:

Its super light so I can fly with it. Its also easy to clean. Really useful for road trips, the beach, camping & outdoor walks and hikes. [Price Check]


Tasty Clean

Every little one goes through an age where they think its fun to watch dad and mom pick up their pacifier or toys, like constantly, off the floor. Its the only reason they want that toy - so they can just throw it down again and watch you pick it up, right?


With Covid going around the risk of items falling on the floor or being contaminated and then finding its way into your child's mouth is even scarier. So you need something that protects your child while travelling.

TastyClean have invented a patented, flavored cleaning spray and its perfect for pacifiers, bottles, toys, mouth guards, retainers, dentures, musical instruments, camping utensils & the list goes on.

  • Its clinically tested. Safe. Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the main ingredients 

  • Easy & Quick to use. Simply spray the item liberally, wait at least 30 seconds then wipe or shake off the excess. 


There's many ways you can use it but here are some of the most popular:


Why I like it:

The flavors are really yummy so our kids don't mind a squirt. We use it on store carts, restaurant high chairs, airplane trays and entertainment consoles. Its also Eco-friendly with no harsh chemicals. [Price Check]


Social Distancing + Sleep Aid

CoziGo

Now with everything going on parents have been quite concerned about keeping their little ones safe. Especially on airplanes. Babies can’t wear masks so what do you do to socially distance them?



The CoziGo is a product we’ve used in every day life as a Sleep Aid but now with everything thats going on with Covid it makes perfect sense to use as a socially distancing tool.


  • Blocks out 97% light and can increase nap time by up to 400%

  • UVP 50+ rating so its perfect for outdoor use

  • 100% breathable with cross-flow ventilation


Airlines that approve the CoziGo:


Why I like it:


I like things that are super easy to setup and fold away. The CoziGo doesn't require any silly instructions as it simply pops into place. It attaches with clips to a stroller frame and fits every kind of stroller we've tried it on. [Price Check]



Comfort & Safety

MiFold Grab-and-Go



So the first challenge a parent has when travelling is car seats. Taking a huge, heavy car seat along wherever you go isn’t always possible - especially if you’re flying and especially if you have more than one child who needs a car seat. Also, think about the last time you caught a taxi or uber that offered a kids car seat - like never!


I don't like to use the rental kids car seats - probably because I know what goes on in a kids car seat and I don’t want no part of that kinda nastiness on my kids.


We use the MiFold products. MiFold has 2 products depending on your needs and the age of your kids - the Grab-and-Go and the HiFold.


The MiFold grab-and-go booster seat which is the world's most compact portable booster is perfect for travelling. Basically it makes use of the cars seatbelt system but adjusts the strap more safely for your child.
