There are so many essentials when travelling with little ones. Here are just a few things that make my life easier!

1) Harper + Hudson necklace. This is so cool for flying with a teething baby – no need to constantly keep search and rescuing teething toys as they are flung about the cabin. I was lucky enough to be given one of these from my bestie and I LOVE it. No more ugly, plastic looking jewellery! Harper + Hudson is an Australian owned label, designing and creating nontoxic chewable jewellery for yummy mummies. All designs are made using 100% food grade silicone that is safe for baby’s gums and emerging teeth and free of nasty chemicals such as BPA, PVC, phthalates, cadmium and lead. You can buy online at www.harperandhudson.com.au

2) Cherub Baby Click and Go Bottle Warmer. I am so amazed by this product. You literally click a button in the gel pack and it causes a reaction that solidifies the gel and starts to heat up. This is amazing for picnics or those days when you know you’re going to be on the go all day without access to hot water or a microwave.

3) Toys from The Coffee Apple. I am always looking for things to keep big adventurer entertained on long flights and whilst iPads are a godsend, it’s nice to break it up with some other activities. We can’t live without the travel chalk mat, eye spy bag and marble maze. These are beautifully handmade toys and my son just loves them. The best part is that they are so compact that you can put them in your hand luggage. You can get them at www.thecoffeeapple.com.au
