Travelling with children can be one of the best and hardest things you’ll ever do. There’s no denying the memories you’ll make will be well worth any hurdles you may face, but gosh - the hurdles can be tough!
Travelling with young kids can be especially hard, as long plane rides can be fatiguing, and unfamiliar hotel rooms can be confusing for little minds. Throw in different time zones, and you’re really in for a tired, overwhelmed treat!
If your trip involves a lot of boarding and disembarking planes and trains, then you may need to think about limiting your luggage as much as possible. Choosing a pram or cot that is designed for travel means that more likely than not they will fold into the overhead compartment on a plane and be able to be carried with a strap over your shoulder. It should also be lightweight.
If every item you choose to bring with you can service your needs in more than one way, then it can more than justify accompanying you on your trip!
What you don’t want is to touch down in your destination and attempt to unpack your portacot, only to be unable to set it up properly! You should choose travel essentials that are easy to use, with a clear and important purpose, that you will likely use more than 20 per cent of the time while away.
Sturdy and comfortable, the Bombol Pop-Up™ Booster will give your child the height, safety and comfort they require when eating meals, or sitting on any kind of adult chair. The best part is that it doesn’t take up the room that traditional booster seats do, in fact, it folds down to just the size of a book!
“Bought this about a year ago and have been keeping this in car just in case some of the eating places doesn’t provide baby chair. This is one of the great investment I’ve ever purchased for my kid. It’s convenient, easy set up and quick clean up too. Such a life saver it is.” - AS, November 2021
“Our daughter loves sitting on her Bombol booster - it’s easy to clean, light to carry, really convenient to fold up and set up….and it also comes with its own carry bag that is stylish.
I don’t have to worry about my toddler falling out due to the 5 point safety harness. Love that this product isn’t clunky and clumsy, it’s sleek and durable!” - Tricia Yap, June 2021
Besides being one of the easiest portacots to erect, it also packs down and fits into a small carry bag. In fact the whole cot weighs less than 5 kg! Which means no more lugging around a heavy travel cot that takes ages to put together.
Not only is it lightweight and easy to set up and pack down, the AeroMoov is made using the high-quality PU foam mattress, which is 3 cm thick and offers optimum back support. Better still, it comes in two height settings and can be used indoors or outdoors safely.
“Insanely easy to set up and fold away. It is worth the money for the quality, functionality and ease of use. Very happy with this portacot." - Jessica C
The Bombol Blast UV™ Disinfector is not just powerful - it’s effective! In fact, this one, fold-down, entirely portable device is up to 100,000 times more efficient than a regular 99.9% UV-C sanitizer or wet wipes.
Updated for 2020, the Silver Cross Jet Black Travel Stroller has a new, ergonomic seat for even better baby comfort, while the new wheel design and improved suspension provide the best ride yet.

SlumberPod is a portable, affordable, patent-pending solution for family room-sharing and getting a good night's sleep. The SlumberPod allows you to have your baby in your room without them spying on you as you sleep. It also provides darkness in a room that’s far too light.
Aside from making your baby’s sleep space darker, and ensuring they don’t spy you across the room, the SlumberPod is also available with a fan accessory so that your baby doesn’t overheat.
This is a fabulous accessory to have with you while travelling, as your baby’s sleep space will always remain consistent, giving them a better chance of sleeping - and staying that way!
“We seriously could not love this product more. We got it for travel but we've ended up using it constantly for naps at the in-laws and when we have guests over. It's my #1 most recommended baby product and I've purchased several for friends' baby showers. It also is really small when disassembled which I appreciate. Such a smart, simple idea that's truly a game changer.” - Mallory, October 2020
“We bought this when we needed to spend a couple of nights away from home. We had just finished sleep training and didn't want to disrupt our baby's routine. The SlumberPod helped keep her sleeping area dark for naps and bedtime sleep. I love how it packs up really small and folds flat for easy storage.” - BB&B Customer, February 2021
The Redsbaby CONNECT Plus Carrier is the Winner of the Good Design and Red Dot Awards recognising the best in product design and innovation - and for good reason. This is one of the most comfortable carriers for both parent and child.
With four comfortable front and back carry positions, this carrier is suitable for newborns to approximately 20kgs. Redsbaby CONNECT Plus is also hip dysplasia friendly, approved by Healthy Hips Australia and the design allows the weight of the child to be spread across the back and waist evenly, meaning that it’s incredible comfortable for longwear.
The three-layer design (mesh, plush, windbreaker) makes the carrier suitable for all weather conditions, it also contains CONNECT pockets which allow you to feed your hands through and cradle your baby from underneath.
“I really like how comfortable this carrier is for both of us. It’s easy to put on and great for all seasons with the different layers. The demo video made it easy to work out how to use it. It’s made of good quality material and the storage bag is really useful. 5 stars from us!” - Adeline, December 2021
“I highly rate this carrier. I had tried 3 different carriers with my first baby with absolutely no luck. This time round I did my research and found the redsbaby connect plus had great reviews and is very reasonably priced.
I had no trouble getting it on and found the instructions so simple. Very comfortable and supportive. Definitely recommend ❤❤” - Bec, December 2021

The Jiffi Portable Warmer encompasses 2 useful products in one. The colourful base is the rechargeable bottle warmer, which connects directly to most bottles and the white top section is the formula dispenser that sits on the base. It can heat a baby's 120ml bottle up to 4 times on a single charge or maintain the temperature of a 120ml bottle for 3-4 hours on a single charge.
The 3 selectable water temperatures 37°, 40°, and 45°, allows for the desired water temperature for your baby's milk.
This bottle warmer can be used whilst plugged in to provide parents with a bottle that is ready any time of day or night. (3A/5V Adaptor Required)
Fits over 21 popular brands of wide-neck baby bottles (53mm). See Jiffi FAQ for bottles that connect without an adaptor.
Additional adaptors are available for bottles including Nanobebe, Medela, Tommee Tippee, Dr Browns Narrow Neck, Dr Browns Wide Neck, Pigeon Narrow Neck, NUK wide neck, NUK Super Wide Neck, Pigeon PP Bottles, MAM and Como Tomo
Jiffi incorporates a specially designed formula dispenser that sits on the base for ease of use out and about.
The formula dispenser holds up to 150g of formula - and dispenses in 10g increments per press. Due to each formula company having a specific scoop size RochiLou has created a formula conversion chart to make bottle prep easy with Jiffi. Because our dispenser dispenses 10 grams at a time we have adjusted the water volume needed to make sure your formula to water ratio is always correct.
“I purchased the jiffi home bottle warmer and absolutely love it! It’s so easy and takes out the stress and hassle of making sure the water temperature is correct. Being a first time mum this has been life changing. It takes a few minutes to heat up which is great and I actually take it everywhere...even though you need a plug most places I go to have one! Highly recommend this to everyone!” - Michelle, December 2019
“Was given the jiffi bottlle warmer as a gift from a friend and absolutely loved it! So handy to use when out and about and even overnight. With my first baby was always a pain to have to ask for hot water whilst out a restaurant etc to warm my bottle whilst you have a screaming baby. This took the stress out of it and made things so much easier. Half asleep night feeds are also so much easier. Highly recommend!” - Madelyn, November 2019
