In the event you missed half 1 which was a full breakdown of my outfits you should definitely test it out here.
There have been so many ummmm, let’s say ‘distinctive’ issues ( LOL ) that occurred on this journey when it got here to touring with a child so I made a decision to dedicate a complete submit to issues that may make it simpler.
Little disclaimer: I AM NOT AN EXPERT !! That is simply what I do. Don’t take heed to me as a result of I do know jack shit. I’m simply sharing what works for us. Now that that’s out of the way in which, let’s get into it.
MUST HAVE ITEMS FOR TRAVELING WITH A BABY:
♡ A Sippy Cup
This is such a good sippy cup & I discover myself always giving it to Zaza as a result of it doesn’t spill throughout my diaper bag. It’s solely $6 & she will drink from it at each angle as a result of it has a weight on the finish of the straw. Additionally, there’s a hood/cowl sort of factor for the straw which is vital to keep away from germs & leaking.
It’s light-weight, straightforward for infants to carry, & Zaza has the recent pink so it’s straightforward to search out within the depth of my diaper bag ( in case you’re a mother, you already know what I’m speaking about ).
We like to provide her juice, water or coconut milk in, it’s BPA free & you may put it within the high rack of your dishwasher ( we use a straw cleaner too ).
In the event you’re right into a ‘mommy & me’ state of affairs you may at all times get your child an identical Hydro Flask. Zaza has the pink one with a straw lid & the silicone sleeve that protects the underside when she drops it 1,000,000 occasions a day.
♡ Serenity Children Bone Broth Puffs
These puff snacks are with me on a regular basis. I actually don’t even go for a fast stroll with out them. I imply, if these aren’t with us, overlook it. Zaza loves them. Her favourite are the broccoli & spinach ones.
They’re savory, not candy, in order that they have 0 grams of sugar, they’re made with bone broth & olive oil and natural dehydrated broccoli, spinach, kale, parsley, lemon, thyme, garlic, onion & rosemary.
It’s best to know there are NO FILLERS ( like rice & wheat ) which will be onerous for a child’s little tummy to digest.
In the event you’ve by no means heard of Serenity Kids, they specialise in tremendous high-quality youngsters meals. All their substances are ethically sourced, the greens are 100% natural, and so they’re stuffed with wholesome fat. Their focus is on nutrient density, regenerative agriculture and all their packaging is eco-friendly. And get this… they may even ship you an envelope, postage paid, so you may ship again used pouches for them to recycle for you. It simply doesn’t get higher than that.

♡ LOTS of Snacks
We pack plenty of different snacks like blueberries, cucumber, watermelon, avocado & tangerines, however particularly I at all times wish to have That’s It apple crisp snacks. Zaza thinks these are a deal with however truly they solely include one factor: natural apple.
Do your self a favor & throw in a number of further baggage for your self as a result of I wager you may’t cease consuming them.
♡ Obtain Some Exhibits
Choose away, choose away. The Lion King on my burner telephone has been saving the day these days. ( I’ve 2 telephones, one for work & one for play, and having two save my ass in a pinch ).
Hilary, who’s on my crew, swears by Storybots on Netflix for her son. He loves it & it has expanded his vocabulary in a serious manner. So the following time we’re on a flight I’ll be downloading that for Zaza.
♡ A Particular Playlist
Zaza loves Bossa nova ( shocker ) however I even have the particular playlist I made for her that’s stuffed with Disney songs & French lullabies. She’s been listening to this playlist since she was a small child, so naturally it soothes her virtually immediately.
Her absolute favourite are the songs from Pinocchio although. When You Want Upon a Star & I’ve Bought No Strings are two of her favorites.
Even the songs that you just wouldn’t count on on the Pinocchio soundtrack, those with no phrases, are very nice. Those referred to as The Clock Sequence, The Kitten Theme & The Blue Fairy are very nice background songs. It simply reminds you of going to Disneyland with a Dole Whip, further giant pickles, & corn canine, ya know? It offers you all of the nostalgic feels.
♡ Be Chill- It’s Simply One other Day
Once we journey we attempt to maintain a relaxed vibe & not give the entire ordeal an excessive amount of power. We act like “it’s simply one other day hunny!”
We attempt to maintain our vibe gentle & ethereal & it helps after I’m very stoic along with her. She feeds off my power so if I’m freaking out, she freaks out.
♡ Different Necessities:
+ diapers ( my god, BE SURE you bear in mind diapers )
+ plastic bag ( if there’s a barf/blowout state of affairs, meals scraps, soiled wipes, or soiled silicone plates, throw all of it in a plastic bag to type out later. TRUST ME you don’t need banana peels & a barfy onesie floating round your diaper bag )
Ultimately, preparation is KEY. Man, it actually saves your life relating to touring with a child.
If all else fails, head to the lavatory to ‘repair your make-up’ & let your vital different take care of all of it. Let’s be trustworthy: touring with a child is not any joke.
