What Baby Equipment to Bring and Rent When Travelling

Travelling with a baby in tow can be difficult, not to mention stressful. Even if that’s the case, it’s a fun bonding experience to travel with your baby, especially if you’re just a new parent. Things can get difficult, however, if you do not know which baby equipment to bring and which ones to rent, as there are many things to remember when it comes to what to pack for your baby.

Here, we will discuss some of the things you should just rent from a baby rental in Miami.

The Stroller

While some strollers are easily collapsible and light, they can still be bulky and difficult to carry, especially if you are travelling with only your baby and no adult companion around. Renting a stroller is always the wiser decision. If you want something to put your things in when travelling, then go ahead and bring the stroller with you.

If you do not want to bring the stroller, then make sure to bring a baby carrier or saddle with you so you will not have a hard time carrying your baby all the time.

The Car Seat

Mom and baby

There is just no point in bringing a car seat with you since you will be most likely seated on a plane. This only makes sense if you are traveling by land 100% of the time and are using your own car or a rental car. If you are only planning to use it as soon as you land, then leave that bulky car seat at home and rent one instead.

The Crib

Of course, there is no sense in bringing a crib or travel cot with you, unless you want to go over baggage. Search for the best travel cots or cribs in advance, so you would know where you could rent one as soon as you land in your destination.

If you are renting a hotel, ask them if they can provide a crib or a travel cot for your baby. Most hotels and accommodations will provide one, but make sure to let them know ahead of time so they can prepare for it.

The High Chair

Again, there is no sense in bringing a high chair with you when travelling with your baby. Besides, most restaurants and establishments will offer a high chair if they see you with a baby in tow. If they don’t offer right away, then you can always ask.

If you really want to bring a high chair with you for your baby’s convenience, then try bringing a travel or fabric high chair instead, as these ones are easier to pack and assemble.

Sure, you can bring some of your baby’s favorite toys with you when you travel, but make sure that they are not the bulky ones. Keep them in a separate bag or container so you can easily find them when your baby looks for them. Keep a baby travel checklist to know which ones you have to pack when travelling with your baby. Enjoy and be safe!
