Many Intended Parents have to travel to another state for the delivery of their baby. Often people think that traveling with a young baby is daunting because of all the stuff you need to care for your baby. We can share a list of other items you might consider later, but this has to be number one.
The Doona carseat/stroller!!
Unlike other car seat/ stroller combos this one is just one piece. The wheels and legs fold up into the seat. So you can literally go from the rental car through the airport and right onto the plane without disturbing your baby! If you plan to hold your baby on the plane (our preference) then you can check the stroller right at the door of the plane and they will have it ready for you when you get off the plane. Doona even makes a bag that zips that protects your car seat/stroller when you check it. This stroller takes a minute to figure out what latches to pull to release everything to get it to fold up, but once you have it you are all set. Here is a video to give you an idea of how easy this stroller is to use and how nice it is to not wake up a sleeping baby as you get in and out of the car during the day. https://youtu.be/JQPf9nWzA0k
The cost is $499 which might seem pricey but when you add the cost of a stroller and the cost of a car seat and then add in the bliss of not waking up your baby? It’s priceless!
