Must Haves for Family Travel in the Fall

Posted by Cindy Perry on 9/18/2016

Fall is one of the best seasons for traveling because the summer tourist season has died down so you can take advantage of the crowd-free areas, lower prices, and cooler weather. Whether you’re traveling close to home or going on a big out-of-country excursion, a family trip always takes some planning, especially when bringing little ones along. If this is your first time traveling with an infant or toddler, you will definitely want to pack some of these amazing products that were made with traveling in mind. These items can really help make your trip a breeze so you’ll wonder how you ever traveled without them!

Pello Luxe Floor Pillow

Beautifully designed with large loop handles for hands-free carrying along with 100% cotton and luxe brushed poly fabrics, Pello provides a completely portable lounging surface for your baby to snuggle into no matter where you happen to be. Pello is incredibly versatile and stays with your baby from the time they are born through countless milestones in their life. As a newborn, your baby bonds with his/her Pello as they cuddle into the soft cozy center and are buffeted by plush raised sides. This wonderfully inviting shape conforms to their bodies, keeping them comfortable and secure. Older kids also love lounging around on the Pello while reading, doing homework, or watching TV.

Zipadee-Zip

The Zipadee-Zip wearable blanket is loved by sleep experts, pediatricians and parents everywhere! It provides a womb-like environment but full range of movement to roll over and wiggle around safely and freely. It has become known as THE swaddle transition solution. The slight resistance in the arm-span helps soothe the startle reflex and will often work to ensure sounder sleep when most other products of its kind fail. Even with the full enclosure the Zipadee-Zip provides, babies can pick up and put in their pacifier or play with a toy while wearing it. It prevents the risk of hip dysplasia, keeps loose blankets out of the crib and is also safe to be worn while a baby is buckled into a car seat or stroller.

CARES Airplane Safety Harness

CARES Child Aviation Restraint System is designed specifically for aviation use for children age 1 and older who weigh between 22 and 44 pounds. These youngsters are old enough to be in their own seats, but are too small for the seat belt alone to protect them and provide the safety they require during airplane travel. Their bodies cannot withstand the jolts that are common in routine air travel, much less emergency situations, and they flail forward or slide beneath the seat belt if they are not held securely in place. CARES is an elegantly designed belt-and-buckle device that works in conjunction with the regular airplane seat belt and provides young travelers the same level of safety as a car seat.

luxe floor pillowWritten by Cindy Perry, Inventor of the pello, Luxe Floor Pillows

Cindy, a Texas girl, put herself through college working at a children’s library and sewing at night. When she met her husband and had her two boys, she decided to stay home to care for them while designing window treatments and bedding.

When Cindy’s first son was learning to sit up, he would always fall through the pillows she set around him, hit his head, and cry. Besides, setting her child down on the hardwood floors on just a blanket always seemed so cold. Using her years of sewing and design skills, Cindy took inspiration from a woman in her breastfeeding class and got to work. With some scrap fabric and a few tweaks, pello was born! pello is a luxe floor pillow that helps children feel safe, warm and protected.
