The mental charge which parents carry all the time is magnified when traveling with a baby. This is where Bebe Voyage steps in to alleviate some of that stress. Bebe Voyage is a community of globetrotting parents providing collectively-sourced, local knowledge and practical advice on traveling with a baby.
Now they are turning that crowd-sourced wisdom into useful products. Their latest innovation has been compiling handy baby travel checklists. Thanks to the experiences and recommendations of over 10,000 members world wide, Bebe Voyage has created 10 sublists for traveling with a baby which cover everything from packing a carry-on to age specific lists (infants vs. toddlers) to weather related ones.
“One common complaint that we hear from our community members is that they always feel like they overpack yet somehow missed something important,” says Bebe Voyage Co-Founder and CEO Marianne Perez de Fransius. “We want to make sure traveling parents only pack the stuff they need and don’t forget what they really need.”
The baby travel packing lists are downloadable and editable so that parents can make notes and customize them for their needs. They can make notes about which specific baby bottle they want to bring and how many diapers they need.
“When I’m getting ready for a trip, I just feel like I’m juggling so much. Between planning and booking and just getting over my own travel anxiety, I just end up throwing a bunch of stuff into the suitcase,” Juliet Perrachon, Bebe Voyage Co-Founder and President, sighs. “The worst was the time my son’s favorite stuffed animal got left behind! It was a security blanket for him, so trying to get him to feel at ease in a new environment and get some sleep (and let us sleep!) was really rough!”
While these baby travel checklists do not guarantee a successful trip, they are one tool that parents can use to ease their travel preparation. Bebe Voyage already has a series of travel guides specifically geared towards families traveling with children under 5 years old.
In the coming weeks, Bebe Voyage will be releasing additional innovations to help traveling parents. This includes a revamped website which will make it easier for parents to find information about destinations, gear and advice. There will also be an exciting new feature which parents will be able to use with their family at their destination. The launch is scheduled for the first week of October, 2018.
