weeSpring Product Reviews from FVC


Family Vacation Critic helps parents plan the best family vacations, while weeSpring.com helps parents find the best baby and toddler products. Together, we’ve teamed up to provide parents with great product recommendations for traveling with infants and young kids. We asked our staff of moms with infants and toddlers to tell us about their tried-and-true travel gear. Take a look at our favorites here, and follow us on weeSpring.


Skip Hop Pronto Changing Station

“The Skip Hop Pronto Changing Station, Chevron is great for a diaper changing station when traveling/staying at a hotel because it is so small and compact -- I used mine for a diaper change on the plane! It can hold a few diapers and also comes with a small wipes carrying case.” —Amanda Hoy, mom to a 16-month-old daughter

Go-Go Babyz Kidz Travelmate

"This GO-GO BABYZ TRAVELMATE Car Seat Travel Stroller for Toddler Car Seats is a must-have for families that travel with car seats, as we often must do if we are not renting a car with a car seat at our destination. This car seat carrier allows you to wheel your child through the airport in his car seat, doubling as a stroller, so you don"t have to travel with more gear than necessary. It"s very sturdy and accommodates just about any car seat on the market. Plus, I can"t tell you how many compliments I"ve gotten in the airport. People look at it and immediately comment on how smart this product is -- I have to say I 100 percent agree." —Kim Karis, mom to a 2-year-old daughter

The First Years Jet Stroller

“The Summer Infant 2015 3D Lite Convenience Stroller, Black is our third stroller (we also have a jogging stroller and car seat system stroller). We got this stroller for a plane trip and it was perfect for using for the short distance in the airport to help navigate through security and then it easily folds and opens for security and at the gate.” —Amanda Hoy, mom to a 16-month-old daughter

JL Childress Gate Check Bag for Car Seats

"I bought the JL Childress Gate Check Bag for Car Seats, Red to protect my child"s car seat when checked as baggage at the airport. I"m sure it"s help to shield it from dirt and stains, however I wish the vinyl were stronger. There are already small rips in the bag after only a handful of uses, and it won"t guard against airport employees handling it in a rough manner." —Kim Karis, mom to a 2-year-old daughter

Ergo Baby Carrier

"We don't travel without our Ergobaby Original Bundle of Joy Baby Carrier Black Camel Babywearing with the Ergo Baby Carrier is our preferred way to get through airports with babies and toddlers. The carrier is comfortable and having your hands free is great!" —Sara Wellensiek, mom to three boys, ages 7, 4 and 23 months

Graco Pack 'n Play Travel Crib

"Our go-to travel bed is the Graco Pack N' Play Playard Nimble Nook, Pierce -- affordable and small enough to fit in tiny hotel rooms, we"ve even squeezed it into closets and bathrooms so we can hang out in the main room while the baby sleeps." —Shayne Rodriguez Thompson, mom to a 2-year-old son

Diaper Dude Messenger Diaper Bag

"For family travel (especially when flying), we like backpacks or messenger style bags that mom or dad are willing to carry. We love the external pockets on the Diaper Dude Messenger Diaper Bag for Dads, Black with Gray Zippers, making it really easy to access things on the airplane." —Sara Wellensiek, mom to three boys, ages 7, 4 and 23 months

Munchkin Arm & Hammer Diaper Bag Dispenser

"I don"t use the Munchkin Arm and Hammer Diaper Bag Dispenser, Colors May Vary on a regular basis, but when I"m traveling on long flights these fresh-smelling little baggies must make it into my diaper bag. I find that we usually end up with a lot of trash, baby wipes, snack wrappers, etc., during a flight, and it makes sense to collect all of the trash myself and hand it to the steward at the end of the flight. This product couldn"t be easier to pack with its super compact design, and the bags are scented and mask the smell of anything unwanted. Great product!" —Kim Karis, mom to a 2-year-old daughter
