Because space is often limited when traveling by plane, you will want to be strategic about the amount of baby gear and products you bring with you. Many people find packing a small stroller to be beneficial, and some choose to bring car seats for their infant to sit in for the duration of the flight comfortably. A baby carrier is helpful when out and about with your little one, and you'll definitely want to have a diaper bag with you while on the go. If your accommodations include a crib for your baby, you can probably get away with just bringing a lounger. However, it's always nice to have peace of mind when traveling; therefore, we recommend bringing a portable baby bed as well. 

You'll also want to bring things like diapers, wipes, formula, baby bottles, snacks, shampoo, bath wash, and other toiletries, medications, and a first aid kit.

Traveling by car often provides you with more space than plane travel, so you have more leeway to bring more items for your little one. In addition to all of the baby gear and products mentioned above, you may want to pack extra clothing for your infant as well as books, toys, and other games to keep them occupied throughout your travels.

When it comes to strollers and car seats for your baby, the amount of accessories available is abundant. You'll find that the Instacart app offers a large selection of accessories for both strollers and car seats, catering to all preferences and budgets.

Some of the more popular stroller and car seat accessories include:

Car Seat
  • Bunting covers.
  • Car seat canopies.
  • Baby head support.
  • Backseat mirrors.
  • Window shades.
  • Seat protectors.
  • Rain cover.
  • Mosquito net.
  • Stroller organizer.
  • Bunting covers.
  • Nest insert.
  • Portable noise machine.
  • Extra hook.
  • Snack tray.
  • Stroller toy.
  • Travel bag.
  • Cupholder.

A portable baby bed is designed for naps and sleeping through the night, while loungers are made to soothe your infant and should only be used with adult supervision. Baby beds tend to be pricier than loungers, but both offer a series of benefits and can make traveling with your baby easier.
