Travel Gear Recommendations for Joe

In this guide:

Since this category has the biggest ticket items, I’ve given you a few options for each. I kept it brief but you can always text me with questions if you want more details.

 

CAR SEATS

You indicated that you want a convertible or 3-in-1 car seat. FYI - (in case you didn’t know) these car seats can’t be attached to your stroller. If you are looking for a car seat that you can attach to your stroller or if you want to take the car seat in/out of the car with your baby still strapped in (like when they’re sleeping), then you’ll want to buy an Infant Car Seat. Don’t be fooled by the name, Infant Car Seats can be used until ~12-18 months, depending on the height and weight of your baby. Some parents with two cars like yourself, will buy an infant car seat for one car and a convertible or 3-in-1 for the other.

I’ve recommended four car seats for you - two infant options, a convertible, and a 3-in-1.


 

STROLLERS

It looks like you’re interested in full-size, jogging, and convertible strollers. I took this as you’re open to all of them and not sure which one you want yet. I’ve pulled together one for each type of stroller you’re interested in. I also threw in a lightweight option since lightweight strollers are more affordable and have come a long way - many offer similar benefits to full-sized strollers.

Strollers are one of the harder items to shop for because everyone’s lifestyle is different and how you may incorporate a stroller is different. Think of these as a starting point to get a lay of the land. I’m happy to give you more options once you’ve narrowed down what you want.


 

CARRIERS

You mentioned that you’re not sure of what carrier type you want yet. Here’s a quick guide that details the different types and what to consider when choosing a carrier. Since you’re unsure, I’m recommending three carriers to look at first (two wrap and one soft-structured). Some parents get a wrap for the early months for closer skin-to-skin babywearing and then transition to a soft-structured carrier when your little one is bigger.


 

DIAPER BAGS

IThere are so many options with diaper bags. Based on your preferences, I’ve pulled together modern unisex options in messenger, tote and backpack styles and stuck to black and neutral colors. Let me know if you’re looking for a specific pattern or color and I’m happy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
