If you are traveling with small children you are going to need a car seat. Now, do you bring your own or not? Many people opt to rent a car seat at their destination, however, if your destination doesn’t have a baby equipment rental company, or if you just want to bring your own, be sure to check out the gogo Kidz Car Seat Protector Bag.

Well, believe it or not, car seat protector bags are hard to come by in Canada. Wee Travel sells them for $50.

If hauling around the whole kit and caboodle (diaper bag, changing table accessories, blankets, pack-n-play) doesn’t sound like the kind of traveling you want to do, Wee Travel Baby Equipment Rentals (Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria) thinks you might want to know about this great ‘grab bag’. The Lilly Gold Nap-Sac is a deluxe diaper bag that folds open into a self-contained changing station and a comfy bassinet.
Four padded sides fold up to keep baby tucked inside, making it perfect for places that don’t have changing stations (and more sanitary for places that do). When it’s time for a nap, baby can lie down in the padded bassinet, rather than sleep in the car seat.
The bag is made of durable nylon canvas and sized to be carried as a regular tote. The bottom has a wet-proof plastic cover and comes with a soft, white cotton slip for changing and a zebra-print sheet for sleeping. It also has all the spacious pockets you could hope for to keep things separate and easy to find. It comes with 5 bed sheets for a quick change. Available in black or red for around $70 US. Check out the Lily Gold website for retailers.
