How to Transport Babies Under 1 Year

And here we are. You have become a parent of your beautiful baby. You brought him/her back from hospital and laid your baby into the crib. If you are like most first-time parents, you have certainly then immediately asked the question:

“And now what?”

The birth of a baby brings a lot of joy, but also a load of worries. Many parents try to solve transportation as the first issue. If you don’t want to spend the first year of your baby’s life locked at home, you need to get things that will make travelling with your sweetie easier.


One of the first things you have to get before your baby is born is a stroller. It’s a mother’s best friend during the first four months. You will go on many tours around your house or in your local grocery store. During this period, your baby sleeps most of the time, so a stroller is all you need.

Baby Stroller

Later, when starts to notice the world around, it’s quite possible that the stroller will become boring. This will be the right time for the sports part of the stroller.

Long-distance traveling with a stroller is a piece of cake. Your only limit is the size of your car’s trunk. Nowadays, there are many easy-to-store strollers available, so choosing the right one shouldn’t be a problem.

Baby Carrier

This is a means of transportation that’s quickly gaining popularity. A baby carrier is extremely easy to store. You can even have it close to you, in your stroller.

If your baby starts getting bored, you just get him out of the stroller right into the carrier. In most cases, this calms the baby down. Moreover, the carrier has positive effects on back and hip joint development of newborn babies.

Baby Carrier

Most babies love this way of transport because they are constantly near their mother. They feel her fragrance and hear her heartbeat which is soothing.

Another essential benefit is that the view from a carrier is much better than from a stroller.

Egg / Baby Car Seat

A baby car seat is a must for car traveling. Without it, you won’t be able to go further than your house. Not only is traveling without such a car seat dangerous, you are also required by law to have it.

The egg, which was provided with your stroller, will be your baby car seat for the first twelve months. Later on, around the first-year mark, you will have to buy an original baby car seat. There are many on the market which means that choosing the suitable for you is only a matter of reading a couple of Internet reviews.

Baby Car Seat

The above-mentioned means of transport are amongst the most popular ones. A stroller and baby car seat are universally used by almost everyone, baby carriers maybe a little less.

However, I have added it on purpose to this list, because I can confirm from my own experience that children love it and by purchasing it you will lighten up your life and traveling as well as the life and traveling of your baby.
