This one is for parents who love to travel. Traveling with a newborn might make you reconsider once or twice.. Thoughts of endless airport lines, mid-flight meltdowns, and constant diaper changes can overshadow your dreams of exploring new places.

But what if we told you that traveling with your little one could still be a joyful adventure instead of a challenge?

In this blog post, we're flipping your travel worries into pure excitement! We've got you covered from essential packing hacks to expert calming tricks for those fussy moments.

Why BabyDink is a Top Baby Travel Gear Essential for Traveling Parents

BabyDink is not your average newborn baby carrier. It's designed with the modern parent in mind, offering a range of benefits that make it the perfect travel companion and one of the best baby travel products you can have:

  • Lightweight & Compact: Unlike bulky strollers, BabyDink folds up small enough to fit in your diaper bag or carry-on, making it a breeze to whip out when you need it. It weighs only 300g and folds up in its reusable bag to 30cm. WIN!
  • Hands-Free Exploration: BabyDink allows you to keep your little one close while having both hands free to navigate airports, snap photos, or simply soak in the scenery. It's truly a game-changer when it comes to traveling with a newborn.
  • Comfort: The soft, stretchy fabric and ergonomic design ensure both parent and baby stay comfortable throughout the journey, whether it's a short walk or a long-haul flight. Yes, you can sit down in it.
  • Strengthening Bonds: The close physical contact of babywearing promotes bonding and security, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Recently, Jennie Wilson, the owner and founder of BabyDink, ventured to Bali, Indonesia. During her travels, she had the pleasure of meeting Sophie and Aidan, a dynamic young couple from Adelaide who spent 2 months in Bali traveling and surfing. They were in awe by their game-changing experience with BabyDink carrier in the stunning Oak color. Together, they shared their top five must-have baby items for travel with a newborn:

Sophie & Aidan's Top 5 Must-Haves for Traveling with a Newborn

1. Hat: Whether you’re trekking through a bustling city or lounging by a beach, a hat is always essential. This simple accessory will protect baby’s delicate skin from the sun’s harsh rays.

2. Baby Toiletries: Travel-sized versions of baby shampoo, lotion, and other toiletries are essential. Sophie and Aaron always pack these compact, travel-friendly bottles to ensure their baby stays clean and comfortable wherever they go. Remember to include these on your baby's travel checklist.

3. Cotton Muslin Wraps: 

Lightweight and breathable, they can be used for swaddling, as a nursing cover, or as a soft blanket. Sophie and Aidan often laid one down for impromptu play sessions on the go. Plus, they are easy to pack and clean, making them a practical choice for any travel scenario.

4. Lightweight Nappy Bag: 

A lightweight nappy bag is a travel lifesaver. Choose one with multiple compartments to keep diapers, wipes, extra clothing, and other essentials neatly organized. Find a bag with easy-access pockets particularly useful for quick diaper changes in unfamiliar places. Comfort is key, opt for a bag with a comfortable strap for those long days of exploration.

5. BabyDink Carrier: Sophie and Aidan couldn't stop raving about the convenience of the BabyDink carrier. They used a combination of their Ergo (because now baby Sage weighs 10 kg) and BabyDink. They wandered through Bali's bustling markets, and serene beaches hands-free, all while keeping their baby snug and secure.

What Sophie and Aidan loved about BabyDink was the “bounce” it gave when they needed to settle their baby quickly. The stretch and softness of BabyDink’s fabric, not only allowed Soph to breastfeed easily but ensured their baby Sage stayed close and content, making their travel experience truly unforgettable.


The Benefits of Babywearing while Traveling:

BabyDink carrier provides the perfect blend of comfort and convenience. Traveling with babies or small children can be challenging, but babywearing offers some fantastic solutions:

  • Protection: Babywearing helps shield your little one from overly friendly strangers who are tempted to tickle their cute little cheeks!  Immature immune systems need protection, and babies in carriers are naturally a little more protected from germs that can come floating by.
  • Safety for Toddlers: Keep your adventurous toddlers safe and close, whether in a busy airport or on a walk.
  • Naps on the Go: Babywearing provides the comfort and rhythmic movement that helps little ones catch quick naps even when traveling disrupts their usual routines.

Tips for Babywearing Success While Traveling

For beginning babywearers, there may be a slight learning curve to getting the hang of babywearing beyond the comfort of home.  Here are our tips to keep in mind:

Practice (a lot!) before you go! Become as familiar as possible with the carrier you will be using while you travel.  If your little one is not accustomed to being worn, all of that practice will be just as important for him as it is for you. Traveling invites lots of mental multitasking and learning the techniques of babywearing is not something you want to try to learn in the midst of the chaos of travel!


Tips for a Smooth Journey

As a seasoned traveler herself, and a mother of two, Jennie surely knows a thing or two about making family adventures enjoyable. Here are her top tips for traveling with a baby:

  • Pack Light: With BabyDink, you can ditch the stroller and focus on packing only the essentials.
  • Prepare for Security: Going through airport security with BabyDink is a breeze – simply take your baby out and send the carrier through the scanner.
  • Stay Hydrated: Traveling can be dehydrating, so make sure both you and your baby are drinking plenty of fluids.
  • Embrace the Adventure: With BabyDink by your side, you can relax and enjoy the journey, knowing your baby is safe, comfortable, and happy.

BabyDink: More Than Just a Carrier

BabyDink is more than just a travel accessory; it's a symbol of empowerment for parents who want to embrace adventure without sacrificing comfort or connection with their children. It's a testament to the power of innovation and the love of a mother who wanted to make the world a more accessible place for families.
