When you become a parent, you don’t want to give up your passions in life. While you probably need to slow life’s pace a little when you welcome a new member into your family, taking your kids on your adventures is great for your spirt and theirs.
If you loved to travel before you had children, there is no reason why you can’t bring your babies along for the ride. While it may sound like a lot more work to pack all those items your new baby needs and plan for all the “what-if’s”, one simple tool can help make travel easier when you have a baby: a baby carrier.
There are many options when it comes to baby carriers for travel, but some key things you should look for are ease of use, how easy it is to find space in your luggage for your baby carrier, and usability.
If you are looking for the perfect outdoor baby carriers for travel, here are 5 that would fit all the must-haves for parents who love to travel.

According to Meghan J. Ward, who wrote a review of the Boba Air after testing it out with her daughter, the Boba Air would be better if it had added support on the shoulders after she wore her daughter in a 22-kilometer round-trip hike. She shared that her baby had a great time being carried and said this carrier is best for shorter trips where the lightweight factor is preferred.
