It’s not practical to pack up a high chair and take it with us on our trip. We visit my dad about every 6 weeks or so for a weekend, but high chairs are expensive so it doesn’t make sense for us to buy an extra one to have in Savannah when (unfortunately) we aren’t there that often. Luckily, the Go Anywhere Booster Seat acts like a portable high chair that can be strapped on securely to any chair. It’s lightweight, easy to pack up and carry over your shoulder, and comes in cute patterns. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to figure out how to secure it to the chair but it is really easy to do and seems very safe. I love this chair for traveling, and it will easily come with us on all of our trips in the future, and we are going to keep it at our dining room table when at home so MG will be able to sit right at the table with us. MG will use it through her toddler years so it will get plenty of use. At $36.99 this is a reasonably priced and practical product for parents traveling with a baby.
Hip Baby Wrap Nursing Poncho
Although MG is starting solids, she is still nursing which I hope to continue at least until her first birthday. As I always say, if you are comfortable nursing in public without a cover go for it! I’m not though. When there is lots of family activity going on, or while on the road, it can be hard to find a private place to nurse. Therefore a quality nursing cover is essential. This poncho from Hip Baby Wrap is lovely and easy to throw on anywhere, and provides full coverage both in the front and back which I really like. It’s a thicker fabric, though still breathable, but will double great as a blanket too in this chilly weather, making it great for a traveling mom who doesn’t want to carry along both a bulky blanket and a nursing cover.
Have you heard of a bapron? I hadn’t either until I researched best bibs for babies. It is what it sounds like – a mix of a bib and an apron… genius. I mean, have you seen how messy babies are when they eat? Cinderkitten makes high quality handmade baprons in the cutest fabrics. These aprons actually stay on Maddie Grace, who is great at pulling regular aprons off, and provide great coverage. Plus the pocket at the bottom is great for catching all those food particles that successfully evade babies mouth. The bapron is made of laminated cotton that is easy to wipe off or throw in the washer. The owner provides great customer service, and a little more about her is in the paragraph below.
