    When you're a parent who's constantly in motion, it makes sense to come prepared. And by prepared, I mean just barely hanging on BUT with some semblance of a plan. Thankfully, these products can simplify traveling with your littles, so you can feel like you have it slightly more together.


    1. A pack of three animal storage bins to add a splash of cute to your trunk storage situation. With their coated interior and lightweight durability, these bins are not just adorable, but also totally functional.

    Mark Burstyn

    Just a note — these cuties are folded up when they arrive, so just give them a lil' time to straighten out.

    Promising review: "These are competitively priced, arrived quickly, and are great quality." —SmacD14

    $15 for a pack of three

    2. A Graco FastAction travel system, because this will have you easily traveling with your growing baby. The stroller itself can hold up to 50 pounds, has multiple options for harnessing, and its one-second, one-hand fold can't be beat.


    This stroller set also includes the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 30 Infant Car Seat and click connect base.

    Promising review: "The Graco FastAction Fold Click Connect Travel System is a great travel system! Let me begin with my favorite feature, the easy but safe collapsible stroller. I previously had a stroller that collapsed by pushing a button and twisting the same handle that you used to push the stroller (but I thought that it wasn't a good idea to make the collapse trigger accessible with the baby/toddler in the stroller). However, with this travel system, the baby has to be out of the way to access the strap that collapses the stroller (so already my mind was at ease). All you have to do is pull the strap and you are collapsing and carrying it all in one shot! The swivel action makes it easy to glide in any direction. " —caribbeanbeach

    Price: $179 (originally $200)

    3. A SafeFit backseat and stroller organizer that'll help you find spots for all of the little bits and pieces that make their way into your car. It can fit over the front seat AND can easily fit on a stroller, which makes travel organization a breeze.


    Promising review: "We got this to be more organized on our jogger instead of throwing everything in the bottom basket. And we absolutely love it! We're getting another for our car. It's very simple and does come off very easily to be used in the car or the stroller, thought it was just for stroller but it does have straps for the back of the seat. It will definitely fit most strollers. Love it!!! Great price and good product! Lots and lots of pockets!" —LO1705

    Price: $10

    4. A Safe Fit baby auto mirror to help keep an eye on your kiddo while you drive. These are awesome companions for rear-facing car seats, so your tiny human can enjoy being able to see you while they ride backwards.


    Promising review: "This is a good size mirror, lightweight, and has a few different straps for mounting it. You can also angle it downward with the variation of strap attachments. The reflective part is large, and clear enough to see your baby clearly from your rearview mirror." —nate75

    Price: $11

    5. A Skip Hop signature changing station so you can always handle a dirty diaper on-the-go. This cute clutch can strap to a stroller or fit in a larger diaper bag, and it can also hold enough items to work on its own. It includes an easy-to-wash diaper pad that zips right off and even a little travel pillow to keep your baby's head comfy.


    Promising review: "It is such a cute bag! Very well-made, good quality material. With twins on the way, it is big enough to fit all I need for two without being too bulky. I'm very happy with my purchase!" —Courtney

    Price: $30

    6. A set of Dreambaby stroller hooks for a nifty option when you've run out of room to store stuff in your stroller. The padded handle helps to keep things from sliding down and the larger hook can hold the weight of a couple grocery bags.


    With their super low price, you can stock up on these hooks to have on hand for any travel situation.

    Promising review: "The large clip is fantastic!! It comes with a foam side that keeps your bag(s) from slipping all over. I bought two so i can have one on each strap of my diaper bag backpack. I love it!" —ThriftyMomOf2

    Price: $2.97 for a pack of two

    7. A Spencer waterproof baby diaper backpack, because this is a clear winner thanks to its size and cool amenities, which include a USB charging port. It also comes with straps designed for easy transfer to the stroller. But the best perk just might be the thermal pockets in the front, which keep bottles and drinks from overheating.


    Promising review: "Wow, VERY SPACIOUS! It's not bulky at all, the back fit was nice as well, and it comes with stroller/seat straps and velcro for easy on/off. This back pack can hold a three-day supply for a newborn with no problem, and that includes bottles, clothes. formula, 44 ct diaper pack, blanket, and more! And it still had a lot of space." —MillasMommy

    Price: $37

    8. A Lulyboo toddler safety harness backpack that'll be perfect when you're looking for a little extra assurance. As much as we love our toddlers, they can often turn a simple trip to the mall into an action movie–like survival mission.


    The backpack has three mesh pockets for storage and comes with a detachable tether, so your kiddo can gain independence safely. Perfect for busy crowds!

    Promising review: "It's great to not have to hold onto him whenever we go anywhere. Just one less thing to think about when I'm trying to read labels at the store." —Kristy E.

    Price: $20

    9. A Nickelodeon Paw Patrol three-in-one potty system so you have an awesome option to keep in the trunk for long road trips or days in the car running errands. You can also use it as a standalone potty, take the ring off and use it on a bathroom toilet, AND the base converts into a step stool.


    But that's not all folks — this cute potty also makes fun sounds when your toddler "flushes" it. And of course, it NEVER hurts to have more Paw Patrol in your life.

    Promising review: "I love this potty! Right now we are using as a standalone potty and the flushing handle with the noise is fun! I am most happy that this transitions with your child from just learning about a potty to a step stool and a toilet seat. So from start to finish, all my little guy's potty needs are met! No buying multiple items as he grows into a master potty user." —Mom2boys

    Price: $13 (originally $30)

    10. An Aquaphor baby ointment skin protectant for a must-have to stick in your car. Parents swear by this cure-all miracle ointment for dry skin, cuts, diaper rashes and even lip balm on a moment's notice.


    Just be sure to keep this jar somewhere cool in your car.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have product for any child. I have used this on my daughter, who has sensitive skin, since she was born. Even my pediatrician recommended this product and my other mom friends concur." —Shopper

    Price: $13 for a 14 oz jar (originally $15)

    11. An Itzy Ritzy multi-use cover, because this is an all-in-one gem for busy mamas. It works as a nursing, car seat, and shopping cart cover. It also doubles as an infinity scarf, which is totally fabulous.


    Promising review: "I love that it can be used as a nursing cover, as well as car seat cover! This is a must-have for traveling!! I was able to use it to let my son continue sleeping while in the plane, and when he needed to nurse, I was able to remove it easily with one hand off of his car seat and cover up while nursing!!!!!" —Alyssa

    Price: $24

    Promising review: "My wife wanted this after getting peed upon by my son after several night changes. Apparently she realized that the 'cold wipes' triggers his shooting sprees. I did some research and decided upon this warmer. It worked! No more shooting sessions at night. She said that he rarely even wakes up when being changed at night anymore. Warm bottom = happy boy!" —voyagerkim

    Price: $24

    Price: $26.50

    14. And! A Summer Infant portable play yard that'll be one of the best options around for places like the park and beach. It folds up and fits into a travel bag, which means easy storage in the car. The frame also comes totally assembled and the whole thing only weighs 12 pounds, so it can be opened in a snap.


    Promising review: "I love this play yard!! Everywhere I go, I have at least one parent ask me where I got it. I use it mostly for watching my older child play baseball and soccer. It is sooo easy to use and light to carry! My friend and I both put our eight-month-olds in here and there's plenty of space." —QueenOfTheNorth

    Price: $99.99

    15. A Pura Kiki stainless steel bottle with a silicone straw and sleeve as a cool alternative to plastic sippy cups. It has several drinking options, which makes it easy to use for the whole family, and the entire thing is 100% dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This carrier was a gift. I use it for walks, getting chores done and shopping. I'm excited to use it as a backpack tomorrow for the first time. The storage pocket locations are well placed. No area of the carrier feels weak, even after six months of use, and my little guy weighs in the 85th percentile. Top five best baby shower gifts I have received." —Illinois Mama Bear

It was super easy and intuitive to put together, plus a very comfortable ride compared to other lightweight strollers in market.

This one has held up wonderfully! It catches all the crumbs and protects my leather seats from scratches, scuffs and even spilled milk — and once cleaned, it still looks brand-new! When we found out we are expecting another baby, I knew these were the seat protectors we needed. I may even replace that other brand name seat protector with a fourth Brica model!" —ljgibson

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these window shades. I've had others in the past that just pop off and don't cover enough. The shape of these and the cling-to-the-window function are perfect! Also, you can't beat the price, especially for a two-pack. They're easy to use and came fast. I will be getting a second pair for my husbands car ASAP!" —Kmarie32388

    Price: $9 for a pack of two

    Promising review: "We drove with our 20-month-old from Boston, MA to Myrtle Beach, SC. He used this tray for everything! He snacked, colored, crafted, even played with Play-Doh on this tray. It was such a life-saver. I didn't love the way it fit rear facing, but it did the trick. I imagine it'll be a better fit and easier to use forward-facing. We will not take another road trip without it." —MamaRia

    Price: $15

    25. A set of Nuby seat belt strap covers to help your tiny human feel comfy cozy while they ride with you. These little monsters help protect tiny shoulder's from strap irritation, and they're an adorable addition to just about any kind of seat belt.
