The girls and I are on the go quite a bit, and our stroller is basically the equivalent of what getting around in a car might be like (though if that's really the case, I am seriously at the short end of the stick). Even a morning at our neighborhood park means packing all the essentials: diapers, wipes, snacks, water, SPF, snacks, bathing suit/change of clothes, and oh yeah, more snacks.
Because I'm not dealing with a whole lot of storage space, packing efficiently is key. That said, I am in love with the new travel kit from OXO Tot. Here's a quick description of some of my favorites from the collection, and hey, want to win one of your own? "Like" the OXO Tot Facebook page, and check out their awesome travel tots giveaway!
I am loving OXO Tot's flippy snack cup. It's easy for the girls to hold, and the cleverly-designed top makes Goldfish (their snack du jour) easy to obtain without spilling all over the place. Having a snack container is good for the environment, too. I always feel so guilty when I have to use plastic ziplock bags, which inevitably just get thrown away.
Though my girls are past the point of formula, check out how easy it is to use OXO Tot's new formula dispenser as yet another snack container! I am all about re-purposing items as much as I can, and this one works like a charm.
With the aforementioned storage issue, I'm left with finding additional ways to use my stroller, and hanging lightweight items off the handles is often the answer. The OXO Tot on-the-go wipes dispenser works great for this, as does their stroller hook, which is also perfect for Millie to hold when we're crossing the street (these will be available soon via diapers.com!)
OXO's ever-expanding line doesn't stop there. They also offer an on-the-go feeding spoon, "baby blocks" (baby food storage), and a roll-up bib (coming soon!) that's perfect when you're out on the town.
Saving the best for last, I just love their new on-the-go drying rack. This would have been SO NICE when I was breastfeeding at work, and had to line up paper towels in the office bathroom to dry my bottles and use a brush (in yet another plastic baggie) for storage. Here in one handy compartment you have a drying rack and brush (which unscrews in two for storing inside). Also great when you're out for a while and don't particularly want to come home with a stinky bottle.
Here's to life on the go... an innovative products that make that busy life just a little bit easier!
