FLYEBABY - $39  This baby sling gives parents flying with lapchildren a hand's free flight. It's designed for infants under 25 pounds who cannot yet sit up by themselves.  The sling can also be fitted to a chair making it a perfect on-the-go portable baby seat.


Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller - $499  No more gate checking your stroller and schlepping car seats! This magical baby bucket transforms from a car seat to a compact adjustable stroller with the push of a button. It can snap into a base or be strapped into a taxi with a seat belt. Designed for children under 35 pounds.


Lotus Everywhere Crib - $189 This  portable crib pops out of a backpack and sets up in seconds. It's mesh fabric is breathable, see-thru able and light weight. It's got a side door zipper for toddler fun or parent access.

Inflatable Tub - $24  Many hotel rooms and cruise ship cabin bathrooms only have showers.  Some vacay spots have rules against the use of swim diapers.  Tucking one of these in your suitcase means your little one will be cool, clean and having fun no matter what.
