Being out and about has always played a big role in our lives. Once we had our son Bradley we knew that it was something that we wanted to continue, visiting our favorite places and also traveling as much as possible. When we are out we are always prepared by having a diaper bag full of different clothes options and essential items in case we are out all day. Today we have teamed up with OXO Tot and they have so many great items that make traveling a breeze! These items have been my go to grabs and have recently come with us everywhere we go. This sippy cup is great for Bradley and I love that it has a cover on it so I can easily throw it in my bag. It also is a transitional cup so it gives you so many options for our growing babes and I found that Bradley's favorite way to use it was with the soft spout. Also, when we go out we make sure to bring Bradley lots of snack options since it helps to minimize spending while we are out and since he is constantly growing he sometimes just wants to constantly eat, lol. One of the staple snack items that we bring is something we are able to put in his snack cup, which makes long drives and being on the go much easier. He is always throwing his snack cup, waving it over his head, and running with it and it is still mess free. This helps this momma be stress free knowing he isn't leaving a crumb trail behind him wherever he goes (haha).
Our main two other items we always bring with us are so handy and helpful! The first one being the wipe dispenser and diaper pouch which has made diaper changes, wiping up messes, or cleaning little dirty hands so incredibly easy! Before I would always throw a few diapers and a packet of wipes under the stroller and I felt like it created so much clutter and now with this it helps keep things nice and neat, which most of us parents know isn't always the easiest! It also comes with a strap so you can easily put it on the handle of your stroller leaving more space in your stroller carrier. The second item is the handy dandy stroller hook which any current mommas or soon to be mommas I highly recommend you get one! This helps tremendously in caring any bags while you are out and I know from experience it can fit a good hand full of shopping bags which is always a plus in my book. Hey, we deserve some shopping sprees here and there :) (haha).
We had such a great time at Legoland and I can't wait for our next visit when Bradley is able to go on even more rides. We left during his nap time and when we got home that gave us the time to clean up a bit around the house. I personally like washing Bradley's sippy cup a few times throughout the day especially if you put juice in it. Sometimes apple juice can leave this weird after smell even if the cup is clean so I love that this cleaning set helps get it squeaky clean and you are able to reach all the nooks and crannies in the spout of the cup. Once Bradley awoke from his nap we began our afternoon/nightly routine. Recently it has consisted of the beginning stages of potty training! Yay for no more diapers! Hoping this happens sooner rather than later! Since we are now just beginning we have been using this potty which you can easily have it sit on your toilet at home or take with you if you are traveling. Currently, Bradley is just exploring the idea but I plan to take this with us to our next trip to Cancun because it is so compact and comes with an amazing bag you can store and be easily placed in a diaper bag, stroller, or suitcase!
Well I hope you enjoyed reading about our current key items for traveling with our little one and I would love to hear any of your suggestions, or if there are any items we need to add to our go to travel picks - please let me know!
