I tried searching through the threads, but there's a lot of pages! lol. I just wanted to get some recommendations for the best travel gear when travelling with toddlers or babies. For example, leak-proof sippy cups, bottles, bowls, anything you found you couldn't do without on the plane, etc. Any tips would be great!
of all the 'non spill' cups have bought in the last few years this was the only one that actually did the job and didn't spill! We used them on the last trip we took even though my daughter is past toddlerhood (she was 4 at the time of trip) because of the success we've had with them in the past and they're insulated
If you are flying with a car seat, skip the Gogokidz Travelmate. It's basically an overpriced plastic luggage cart. You can buy a metal-based cart (much more sturdy) and it'll do the same thing, usually at half the cost. Use an extra bungee to secure it.
I'm a big believer in less-is-more when it comes to travel products. I think parents are duped into buying far more than they need in all categories, travel included. The GogoKidz is a good example. Try to prioritize products that can be used again for non-travel uses.

Yes technically its for older children....BUT I used it for my 14 month old (98th % on growth chart) for taxi rides in NYC. Safer then nothing! (please nobody lecture on car seat usage....if I could figure out a way to drag a FF carseat up and down manhattan I would be solving a problem for like half the population in that city)
Also we use it as a booster seat for eating in restaurants or anytime she needs some more height....AND it carries her onboard toys and snacks in the pak part!
