I am always on the lookout for baby travel paraphernalia. I have searched high and low for small, compact, yet comfortable buggies, cots, high-chairs and baths. I have equally sought out other handy items for travelling such as bibs, food containers and sterilising equipment. Sites such as eBay, Amazon, Gumtree, Craig’s List, Trade Me and Ali Express can be really helpful in finding affordable, sometimes new, sometimes second hand items. I also review everything else to do with travelling from photography to tours and beyond.  I hope my reviews help you to make informed decisions when buying products.  Let me know if you discover something cool that could be helpful for other like-minded, travel loving parents!
