Road Trip with Baby in Tow

Traveling with babies or toddlers requires some planning. You’ve got to find the sweet spot between packing too much and not enough. We have a list of tried and true road trip essentials that can all be purchased from Cotton Babies – with free shipping.


If you’re a cloth diapering family, you might end up with a suitcase just for diapers. This might be fine on the way to vacation, but who wants to haul back a bunch of poopy diapers? Luckily, there’s the Flip Hybrid Cloth Diapering system. Designed for situations like road trips, you can use a reusable Flip diaper cover and disposable inserts. Keep the cute and reduce your waste. You’ll be able to pack less while still using a product you know and love.


Stay ultra-organized and always styling with a cute diaper bag from some of our favorites like Petunia Pickle Bottom, Ju-Ju-Be, Skip Hop and more. With great pockets, wipeable fabrics, and many styles to choose from, organization just became fun. Plus, vacation might be a great reason to invest in a backpack-style bag so you can be hands free and ready for fun.


Snacks are definitely a must on the road. Instead of dropping some cash on gas station junk food(we’ve all been there), pack some of your favorites in RePlay Snack Stacks. These handy stackable snack cups are made from recycled milk jugs. They’re dishwasher safe and very sturdy. Tip: color code per person. I call dibs on navy blue!


Everyone needs their own bag, and a Skip Hop Zoo Backpack is perfect for your littles. They come in tons of adorable animals and are sized just right. Whether your kiddo wants to pack a snack, drink, toy or their favorite blankie, Skip Hop Zoo Backpacks will help them keep their treasures safe in one place.

Ride in Style

Before you take off, have you checked your car seats lately? If it’s time to upgrade, might as well get that new seat before a long ride. Shop Britax, Chicco, Nuna, Diono and more.

Short on space? Check out the Mountain Buggy Nano Travel Stroller. This stroller can fold into its own custom made satchel that weighs just 13 pounds. Plus, this stroller can fit into the overhead luggage compartment on an airplane. You’ll have plenty of space in your trunk for this stroller and all your luggage.
