Gugu Picks November: Best Baby Travel Gear
We kicked off our Gugu Picks seal of baby product approval program last month, with the best smart baby picks. Now with the height of travel season starting just weeks away, we thought it would be the perfect time to award some of our tried and true as well as brand new travel-friendly baby gear items.
Best Baby Travel Pick: Milk Snob
Until now, the words ‘chic’ and ‘nursing cover’ were never used in the same sentence. But the mama who invented Milk Snob thought that should be changed and designed a stylish alternative to throwing a baby blanket over your boobs. What’s more, they are also magically multifunctional and can be used as carseat covers, to protect little ones from the wind, rain and blaring sun. The soft rayon fabric is a dream agains the skin and the fully adjustable neck allows for easy on-the-go nursing sessions.Best Baby Travel Pick: DockATot
This portable infant lounger has taken the baby world by storm. Created by a jet-setting Swedish mom who wanted a portable, snug and comfy spot for her little ones to relax in regardless if they were at home or a foreign hotel room, DockATot is fast becoming the must-have baby essential amongst celebrity moms. Though you don’t have to be famous to appreciate the sheer innovation that went into the design and the painstaking steps that were taken to ensure its materials are breathable, comfortable and hypo-allergenic.Best Baby Travel Pick: BabyZen Yoyo Stroller
This travel-ready stroller is a must for any modern mom who doesn’t want to schlep a heavy buggy with them on their next trip, yet doesn’t want to buy a flimsy travel stroller just for vacation either. The BabyZen Yoyo Stroller, which was developed by a team of French doctors, allows you to fold, unfold and steer with just one hand. It’s also airline certified the size of a carry-on bag and it comes with its own travel bag. Another thing to love? You can customize the colors to your choice of style. At a mere 12.8 lbs, this is one lightweight travel stroller with staying power.Best Baby Travel Pick: TWELVELittle Unisex Courage Diaper Bag Backpack
There’s nothing meh about this stylish yet insanely functional diaper bag. Firstly, the fact that it’s a cool looking backpack allows for dads to carry it around without looking like he’s doing mom a favor. Since backpacks are all the rage on the fashion runways, this is one diaper bag stylish moms will be excited to wear. It’s got loads of pockets that can do everything from neatly stash dirty diapers and insulate bottles. It’s also got a padded tech sleeve to protect tablets, phones and laptops. This is one diaper bag you’ll be using even way after your little one has been potty trained.

Give your baby their own space, no matter where your travels take you. The new Room2 portable playard from Joovy gives little ones 50% more play space than most playards. The mesh windows let you see what your tot is up to at all times and gives them an awesome view of what’s going on. The Room2 is a must have for family travel when staying at hotel rooms or grandma’s house. It’s easy to open and close and comes with its own carry bag.
