Parenthood changes lives in many positive ways. Packing is not one of them. For families, the days of traveling light are over, but there’s plenty of gear to help ease the transition. We checked in with Jennifer Cattaui, owner of New York’s hip children’s store Babesta, to see what she recommends this summer.
“This stroller folds down to overhead compartment size so you don’t have to gate check your stroller or wait on the other side.”
“7 AM’s design has all the diaper bag components but is styled like a travel bag and made from lightweight material. My kids are ten and seven, and I still use these as my carry-on; the diaper compartment is perfect for storing make-up. It’s really the first diaper bag that you can use as a regular bag for a long time.”
“This inflatable car booster seat is for the bigger kids that don’t need their convertible anymore but still require some positioning.”
“I love that these cute board books give a bit of literary history, so parents and kids can connect over the classics. It’s summer reading for toddlers.”
