By Amber Pfau

Living the jet-set lifestyle isn’t as easy as it used to be, but don’t turn in those frequent flyer miles just yet. Here are a few helpful tips to make your next trip a little less stressful.

These days dealing with the plane ride can make even the most put together mama lose her cool. In walks… the Sit ‘n’ Stroll. This amazing contraption goes from stroller to airplane seat to car seat to booster seat all with the pull of a lever. The beauty of it is, once your baby is strapped in, en route to the airport, she doesn’t have to leave the seat until you arrive at your destination. The Sit ‘n’ Stroll is available at many retailers, to find one near you go to: http://www.tripleplayproducts.com/

Vacations should be relaxing, but who can relax while transporting all of the essentials for baby? With over 60 locations throughout the country, Baby’s Away will deliver and pick-up everything from cribs and highchairs to monitors and toys. Products come clean and washed and the company even takes care of assembly. http://babysaway.com/

Nothing is more important to your little one than routine, especially at bedtime, which often includes a bath. Kel-Gar’s Sung-Tub Deluxe is an inflatable tub that folds down to take up less room in your suitcase than your favorite pair of heels. Sturdy, interactive and safe, the tub even suctions to the wall to make drying a snap. To find a retailer near you, go to: http://www.kelgar.com/

Train travel with a toddler is tricky business; there are only so many times you can walk up and down the isles for entertainment. euro-baby, a company seemingly dedicated to making upscale juvenile products with the urban mom in mind, has just released The Micralite Fastfold Stroller – a lightweight, stylish and ergonomically correct stroller that is compact enough to fit down narrow isles (not to mention busy city streets). Its Fastfold technology and swiveling front wheels allow for single-hand closure and control, as if you needed more reasons to love this lifesaver.

Your bags are packed…but what about baby’s luggage? When that big, bulky diaper bag just won’t do, the Samsonite Euro Traveler Tote comes to the rescue, with a generous interior, filled with pockets large and small for baby’s things, and easily accessible exterior pockets that will hold the cell, tickets and baby bottle to boot. The changing pad is even included, although we’re not sure how they fit it! To purchase online, visit http://www.babyage.com

With these products at hand, traveling just got a little easier.
