Whether you are a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, we are out and about a lot. From park play dates, to groceries shopping or even going on vacation, we travel with our toddlers a lot. If you’re like me, you like be prepared for when you go on adventures with your children. Our children are also a whole lot more “needy” than we are which makes going out with them a little more stressful. For one, they get hungry a lot faster than we do and with food, comes being thirsty. If your child is still in diapers, there comes diaper changes, but what about when they are in the process of being potty-trained? There isn’t a bathroom in the car. Well OXO Tot has come up with a few lifesaving hacks to make traveling with our toddlers a whole lot easier and stress free.
Michael loves to snack. He eats so much throughout the day it’s not funny. When we are out and about, whether in the car or on a walk, I’m always bringing snacks with me. OXO Tot makes bringing snacks a whole lot easier with the Flippy™ Snack Cup with Travel Cover. It makes this mommy worry free because the flaps keep the snacks inside the container (because if your child is like mine, he likes to shake the containers and snacks tend to go flying). It’s a twist-on lid so it won’t pop off which is a lifesaver when your child begins to figure out that things came come off. The OXO Tot Flippy™ Snack Cup with Travel Cover is a lifesaver, I love the convenience of being able to pour snacks in it and my child is good to go and the car or stroller stays clean.
Like I said, with snacks comes being thirsty. I’m always making sure I’m packing water to take with us because Michael will either have a snack and get thirsty or we are out playing at a park and he needs to replenish his fluids. OXO Tot also makes this so much easier. OXO Tot’s Transitions Soft Spout Sippy Cup Set that is perfect for these occasions and it has four different stages to help your child as they “transition from infant to toddler to big kid.” What comes with sippy cups? Cleaning. This is one thing you want to keep cleaned because of how much your child puts it in their mouth. OXO Tot makes this easy too with their Cleaning Set For Straw & Sippy Cups.It has a small brush for lids and pump parts, a long brush for straws and bottles and a flexible pick for sippy cups. These are wonderful because germs get in every nook and cranny and I for one, don’t want all those germs in my child’s mouth.
The one thing moms know better than anyone is, you use a lot of wipes. Wipes for diaper changes, wipes to clean up spills and wipes to use to wash their hands and face. Wipes have so many uses and it’s one thing I make sure I always have enough of especially when I’m out and about and I don’t have access to a wash cloth and sink. The OXO Tot On-the-Go Wipes Dispenser with Diaper Pouch is the perfect solution. It can hold up to 5 diapers or any creams that you use plus up to 20 wipes. You can simply attach it the stroller which makes it easy when you’re really on the go and you don’t have the time to dig wipes out of the diaper bag.
I love going for walks but I use my stroller when I’m out shopping at outdoor vendors or farmer’s markets. When you’re shopping, you tend to what, buy things. Well, OXO Tot Handy Stroller Hook, is perfect for carrying all the bags so you’re still able to push your child around. You may even have multiple children, and the hook could even be used for having your walker, “hold the stroller.” I use my OXO Tot Handy Stroller Hook
when I take Michael out for a walk. Before this hook, we always had to leave our dog at home because it was hard to push the stroller and walk the dog at the same time. But with this, I can easily slip the end of the leash over the hook and not worry about actually “walking the dog.”
Here’s the thing that moms of toddlers being potty-trained are the most scared of: being away from home and a toilet. Well, Michael isn’t quite ready to be potty trained but we are approaching that time. OXO Tot makes it easy going out and about with their 2-in-1 Go Potty™ with Travel Bag. It opens quickly for all those bathroom emergencies, the legs lock in place and it folds well for storage or portability. It can be used in the home, which is where we will be starting out using it at, but it is also perfect for traveling because it comes with 3 disposable bags that makes is easier for when you’re in the car. You can now take your potty-trained toddler places without worrying about finding a bathroom NOW!
