Being on the move with a baby is difficult and unpredictable. But – with some smart planning and the right must have travel items, you will be able to travel light. We present to you the list of things you need for a newborn when you guys are on the go.
1. Wristband teether
Young babies love to suck their fingers to comfort themselves and this can be super unhygienic when you travel. Introducing a wristband teether that replaces their fingers so they can satisfy their biting desire by sucking on this salient surface naturally. This 360 degree open waistband design is designed like a watch. The size can be easily adjusted and it is designed to accommodate comfortable grinding, yet prevent retching. Made out of 100% BPA free soft silicon, its softness protects the gums. Best of all, it is easy to clean and even promotes baby’s hand-eye coordination.
2. Anti-bacterial re-usable mask
This anti-bacterial 3-ply reusable fabric mask is a must-have to keep your baby safe in the outdoors. With 3 layers, the outer layer is certified anti-bacterial, anti-odour, splash-proof polyester. The inner layer, which is also the filter slot, is made out of 100% soft-style ultra-absorbent cotton which is super gentle on your baby’s skin. The 2-sided access slot compartment allows you to conveniently insert a filter. Adjustable knobs ensure a good fit with this eco-friendly and reusable mask.
3. Multi-Surface Spray
This multi-surface cleaner is a miracle that cleans, disinfects and deodorises at the same time on all surfaces. If it’s a hard surface, spray and wipe. If it’s a soft fabric, spray and leave for 1 minute to dry. Made with antibacterial essential oils like citrus sinensis and thyme, it’s a godsend to remove bacteria anywhere you go. The plant-derived ingredients are gentle on the skin and cruelty-free so rest assured that it is safe for your baby.
