Our list of things that really helped us survive. In the pictures below nicely packed up for walking around. It was easily possible for us to walk with it through Tokyo and New York City from the train station or airport shuttle station to our place.
The things to survive when traveling with babies
Wherever we are, we have the Maxi-Cosi Pebble’s with us. It has secured our babies in planes, cars, buses! It helped us to shower and to feed our twins. Even if we wouldn’t drive a car, we would get them and take them around the world 🙂
Maxi-Cosi Buggies Mila
We decided to leave our Mountain Buggy Duett at home after Scandinavia. It was just too big for traveling and we wouldn’t be able to walk with it through NYC. We took two Maxi-Cosi Mila’s instead. It turned out to be a great idea. The kids started to sleep again in the buggy and at subway stops I could carry it up and down stairways alone. Folded together they fitted easily into a smaller rental car as well. And the adapters to put the Maxi-Cosi Pebble’s on it were directly included.
BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light
We use two BabyBjörn Travel Crib’s light. The crib’s weight is below 5kg and they come in a very nice suite case. You can see when we unfold the suite case what else we fit in there. Everything our babies need to sleep in one place 🙂 Life saver if you need unpack quickly.
- cuddly toy with music
- bed linen
- dribble towel
- baby phone with all cords
- sleeping bag
- baby pyjamas
TwinGo Baby Carrier
It is perfect if you want to be flexible on your own. Just put the kids in and off you go. No more crying kids in the buggy 🙂 Broken side curbs in Morocco, no problem just hop over them with the TwinGo Carrier.
NUK – Babyphone Eco Control+ Video
Watch your babies play, while you enjoy a coffee 🙂 Also perfect at night to see what’s really going on when one of the kids is crying or screaming.
Food scale from Dipse
Looks messy, but we prepare dinner for the kids with the scale. Healthy rice flakes and oatmeal 🙂 We also use the scale to weigh fruit desert and other stuff. Handy to have it.
All weather blanket
We literally pull it out everywhere. Restaurants, parks, at home, in a museum etc.. essential to have it!
Best Toy in the world
You will be surprised how long the kids can be entertained by this!
NUK Baby Sippy Bottle
To give them a good start with drinking water. Our ones still trying to learn it 8)
Get’s them a better smile – at least that’s what DentiStar is saying 😀 Let’s talk again in ten years time!
Life saver. At the beginning, you don’t need it, but once the kids get around 5 to 6 months you can’t go without them. Make sure to get the elastic plastic things at the end to connect and disconnect the pacificer easily.
Real Passport (No Children Passports) for us and the kids
Don’t be happy and excited like us with two “Kinderreisepässen” 🙂 For the U.S., you also need the real adult ones. Why spend money for something that doesn’t get you everywhere. We had to go to the “Einwohner Bürgeramt in Pankow” again to get new ones.
Again at “Einwohner Meldeamt” 🙂
