Families across the country are getting ready for spring break and summer travel. But traveling with kids is not always easy where you have tons of stuff to pack and even more ideas of what to do when you get there. Check out our recap of some of our favorite go-to resources for travel to make your trip as smooth as possible.
Bathing Suits and Flip Flops:
Once you hit sunshine, you will practically want to live in your bathing suit and some of our current favorites are the Button Chevron One-Piece from Lime Ricky and the Guess - Found Gilty One Piece Swimsuit from Swimspot. For pregnant mamas, we love the Navy Spotted Halter Neck Maternity Tankini from Seraphine Maternity.
As for flip flops we love the bright styles and patterns from Havaianas with some of our favorites being the TOP LOGO METALLIC and the LUNA. We are also big fans of Sanita and their cute sandals like the Carise style for the summer.
To calm the chrous of "Are we there yet?" we suggest getting cool kid headphones from eKids. Featuring characters like Marvel, Disney and Nickelodeon, we love how soft and durable these over-the-headphones are that produce a high quality audio sound where you kids can listen to music, movies or games. Additionally, the eKids Disney Creativity Studio features step-by-step instructions from real Disney artists for kids to learn how to traw, trace and color their favorite characters – mess free! When they're done with their masterpiece, they can send along to Grandma and Grandpa.
When you are on the road or flying we also like to make sure that we have an ample amount of healthy snacks and some of our favorites are the healthy Crunch Pak Sliced Apples and their Dipperz line featuring the Sweet Apples with Peanut Butter, Carrot Sticks with Ranch Dip and the Sweet Apples with Vanilla Yogurt Dip that makes it so easy to eat while traveling.
We are also fans of the new line called PRESSELS™, a new better-for-you pretzel chip.
Available in three flavors, Original, Everything and Sesame, PRESSELS is non-GMO certified with no food coloring or artificial flavors, no cholesterol, no preservatives and zero Trans fat.
Another favorite is the portable Welch's PB&J Snacks, a new way to enjoy peanut butter and jelly. This includes delicious jelly flavors like grape, strawberry that is mixed with creamy or crunchy peanut for a tasty snack that is packed with vitamin C.

To keep your bags organized, we love the Luggage Labels Pack from Name Bubbles. Laminated for durability, these labels are waterproof and weatherproof and make it easy so that you won't loose your items at the airport.
As for the bags, moms will love the new 3 piece traveling system from Free Like Birdie Travel System. This includes a Quick Change Diaper Pouch with Deluxe Changing Pad, Quick Change Clothes Bag and Weekender bag that is also free from phalates, pvc, lead and chlorine. We also love how the bag contains odor and liquids so you can place your dirty items in one section and the clean ones in another for an easy unpacking job when you get home. We are also fans of the emerald green that is a unique and fun color for travel.
When you are traveling the last thing you want to think about is your cell phone battery. To ensure that your phone is charged so you can take pictures galore, we recommend the portable battery from the Original Pocket Port. This heavy duty battery works with any phone or the iPad where you can charge up to two ports that holds power for months when in standby mode.
Stay safe this summer by slathering your skin with derma e's new Antioxidant Natural Sunscreens for Face & Body. This powerful Antioxidant Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 Oil-Free Face Lotion and Body Lotion is designed to shield skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, oxidative damage and premature signs of aging. With clear, nanoparticle-free Zinc Oxide, these formulas provide safe, chemical-free broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. The sunscreens are fortified with antioxidants Vitamin C and Green Tea, which are nutrients that have been shown to offer an additional layer of UV protection, help skin recover after sun exposure and curtail signs of aging for vibrant, younger-looking skin. Ideal for daily use, these formulas glide on evenly, absorb quickly and leave a sheer, lightweight, non-greasy finish. Both formulas are hypoallergenic, clinically tested, dermatologist tested, sensitivity tested, fragrance-free, paraben-free, gluten-free and 100 percent vegan.
For babies and kids, we love babyhampton, an organic line of sunscreen and sunstick. I love how the company uses certified organic ingredients, including grape-seed extract, green tea and rose hip antioxidants, shea butter, and extra virgin olive and jojoba oils, to moisturize the skin while protecting from the sun.
