With the holidays and spring break around the corner, traveling to visit family and take time away will be a much-needed reprieve from the winter weather. Pack smart, not hard, and consider a few versatile accessories for an array of circumstances — since you never know what the day can bring when visiting the family or traveling with young kids.


Young Kids

Traveling with little ones means packing snacks; pack something with a dual purpose such as the Booby Boons Lactation Cookies. Created by Stork and Dove, Baby Boons double as a nutritious snack for babies and moms on-the-go. With a variety of natural, healthy snacks, moms and babies fuel up while traveling with Baby Boons. The cookies assist new moms with lactation production and provide wholesome nutrients for toddlers.


While spring break vacations typically involve pools and beaches, the Kindhood can double as a robe at bath time, too, while staying with family. The 100-percent cotton and bamboo fiber poncho is an all-natural, eco-friendly coverall for kids. The Kindhood acts as a towel, beach cover up and cozy travel outfit for kids —leaving more space for you in the luggage.


All Ages

Getting the kids to sleep while traveling can have its ups and downs. On one hand they will be active all day and should be exhausted by night, but on the other they are away from their routine, which could impact sleep. Having back-up, like Sound Oasis: Baby Oasis, can be smart. The sleep therapy machine is small, easy to travel with and offers white noise, sounds of nature and soothing music for kids and babies of all ages.


Looking for some sleep of your own? Try the world’s smallest white noise machine by Sound Oasis. With a one-year warranty, headphones and a rechargeable battery, the Bluetooth device fits in the palm of your hand and provides 10 white noise options and sleep sounds.

Sleeping in transit is easier when you protect your neck and give yourself a veiled sense of privacy. Add an eco-friendly, cozy blanket and you’re all set. Grand Trunk’s bamboo footie blanket has a built-in foot pocket so you can feel free to kick off your shoes while keeping your feet covered.
