ergobaby performance carrierERGObaby Performance Baby Carrier

The ERGObaby Performance carrier ($135) is a great carrier for active parents and children. The moisture-wicking mesh fabric on the inside body of the carrier keeps both baby and parent cool, dry and comfortable while out and about and the Ripstop water-repellant polyester outer layer dries quickly, which is ideal for outdoor activities and frequent washing. The Performance carrier has tapered, padded shoulder straps and a padded waist strap to ensure that parents keep comfortable even while on the longest outings. The integrated sleeping hood supports baby's head while he is sleeping and helps to protect him from the elements. The Performance carrier is one of the lightest baby carriers, making it easier for the long haul -- literally.

Britax Bike Seat

The Britax bike seat ($170) is easy to install and remove with the innovative Click and Cruise bracket. The adjustable 15-position footrests, 9-position headrest, 5-point harness, tall backrest, deep sides, foot straps and integrated spoke guards keep children nine months to four years (or up to 40 pounds) safe and secure. The built-in suspension, shoulder pads, breathable padding and 2-position recline all help to ensure that your child is along for the ride in the most comfortable way. Just don't forget the helmets!

BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light

The BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light ($280) is a lightweight travel crib for on-the-go babies. This portable sleeping spot weighs in at only 11 pounds. The Travel Crib Light assembles in one quick step, folds compact, stores and transports easily in a convenient carry bag and comes with a fitted mattress that has a built-in firm support system to keep the crib steady and comfortable for baby. So break out the camping tent or hop on that plane to Grandma's because you're little traveler is ready to go.
