this post is written in collaboration with The Baby Cubby. thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog!

this gift guide in the 2016 series may just be the most important one of them all since we are coming up on the busiest time of year to travel. today is for all those traveling with little kids whether you’ve got a baby or a toddler, by plan or by car! the holiday season is always the busiest time of the year to travel across town or across country to be with family and nothing is worse than having an upset child with you during your travels.

since we’ve moved down to alabama, we’ve become pretty well versed in traveling with children and i can personally attest to a lot of these items being LIFESAVERS. and when i’m looking to buy things quick and not have to look everywhere for them, i love using the baby cubby for a one stop shop that has everything you need for kids!

this year we’ll be traveling to wisconsin with a one year old and almost three year old and as much as i’m nervous to do it, i will also be incredibly prepared. these flashcards and magnatab will keep addison entertained for quite a while while amelia loves chewing on the soft books (teething problems) and that teething toy i am definitely getting her for our trip. i’m excited to try out the grab and go food storage tower because it seems like it will be so much easier than having numerous plastic baggies floating around! i also really love the micro leather mat for having a place to lay your little one for tummy time or changings. even though we’re past that stage with amelia, it’s something good to keep in mind for baby shower gifts or if a baby number three ever comes along.

The Baby Cubby is for every parent out there who has ever felt overwhelmed or discouraged about becoming a parent. 

Our Baby Cubby team is made up of parents who have been there, we know what it’s like and we are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, and reminding parents how amazing they are and how important their role is.

The way we do that is by finding the best and safest baby gear and providing it to parents in a fun shopping experience where we do things like test strollers on our stroller track, price match everyday – even amazon, offer free shipping nationwide at and actively engage with parents via social media and our cubby community blog to discuss some of those hard topics of parenting.
