I’m so excited to announce that I am joining forcing with Tiffany Cohen of Baby Chic NY Rentals as partners at JetSetBabies.com, which is an online resource that makes it easier for parents to travel with babies and toddlers. Basically — no more lugging a suitcase full of diapers, Baby and toddler supplies are shipped directly to your vacation destination. Tiffany Cohen aims to innovate the way parents travel. “With three children, one still in diapers, I have found that I always try to find a way to simplify my life as a busy mom. Traveling was one that was crucial, hence JetSetBabies.”
Since I’ve been THAT parent packing the suitcase filled with diapers, wipes, and baby food, I was really intrigued when Tiffany asked me to be a partner. My travel frustrations started when my oldest son, Ben, was 11 months old. We went to the island of Menorca in Spain for two weeks. I couldn’t believe how many diapers, swim diapers, wipes, and food I had to pack. Plus lugging a stroller, car seat, and our luggage. I didn’t know what I would be able to buy locally, so I lugged it all. I wish I had worked with JetSetBabies back then, I just would have shipped everything to our hotel and had an easier time traveling!
Parents are usually astounded by how much “stuff” one needs when you go on an afternoon outing. Its almost triple the amount of “stuff” required when planning for a vacation with babies and toddlers. You need a car seat, stroller, tons of clothes, toys, books – and then loads of diapers, wipes, sunscreen and baby food…. You’re taking a lot of “stuff “ that you have to lug around (plus you have to pay baggage fees with most airlines). JetSetBabies was manifested to help parents feel cool, calm and “stuff-free” when Jetsetting. Tiffany and I are putting the “free” back into freedom to help parents travel “stuff-free” by shipping directly to their travel destination.
Our website is being re-launched very soon to offer easier access to baby travel supplies, plus an improved user-friendly dashboard, greater variety of baby items (which will include more organic items) and all inclusive travel supply packages tailored to individual travel destinations that simplify overall planning. All products are delivered straight to the door of your travel destination. Coming soon, there will be an option to get some items “Before You Go”, if you wish – such as items needed for plane travel (ie. activity kids, CARES Harness, travel carts, portable booster seats for vehicle travel).
JetSetBabies offers convenient vacation packs for the beach, Disney Parks, ski slopes…etc.. Each vacation pack is customized with your child’s diaper size and offers enough diapers to keep your child dry, as well as disposable changing pads and wipes. You even have the choice to pick what brand of diaper you like (Seventh Generation is an option). You just need to add baby food, snacks, sunscreen, etc… then check out and you are ready to go!
