NEW YORK (MainStreet) Travelling with baby can be a pretty daunting task and a nerve-wracking experience. It's often a very stressful experience, as one never knows how much to take, what to take. And, of course, parents always end up taking too much. Parents who a few years ago could travel for a week with a backpack suddenly find themselves needing a caravan - or at least seeming to need to. As with so many things in life, having just what you need and no more is all about editing. Here are five new travel toys that offer a range of play experiences, keep babies entertained, are easy to clean and easy to travel with.
