Whether it’s weekly errands that involve play dates and grocery shopping or weekend getaways to visit our parents, we travel with Bryce a lot. If you’re like me, you like be prepared for anything and everything. Because let’s face it: toddlers can be a bit unpredictable at times. Toddlers can go from happy to frustrated in a hot minute, and Bryce always seem to get extra super hungry/thirsty when we are away from our home base. And depending on the age of your toddler, you may be doing potty-training (or in our case: diaper changes). Throw in messy hands, sippy cups on the ground, etc. and you’ve got to be prepared for anything.
Luckily, OXO Tot has come up with a few lifesaving hacks to make traveling with our toddlers a whole lot easier and less stressful…phew! Take a peek at these traveling essentials:
On-the-Go Wipes Dispenser with Diaper Pouch: It can hold up to 5 diapers or any creams that you use plus up to 20 wipes (which let’s face it, you can use wipes for a ton of things beyond just diaper changes!) 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.
2-in-1 Go Potty™ with Travel Bag: #1 fear of toddler parents? Being away from home and a toilet. Bryce is definitely not ready for that yet, but when we’re ready, OXO Tot makes it easy with this potty. It opens quickly for all those bathroom emergencies, the legs lock in place and it folds well for portability. It can be used at home, but it is also great for traveling because it comes with 3 disposable bags that makes is easier for when you’re in the car.
Cleaning Set For Straw & Sippy Cups: It can be tricky to get everything cleaned while you’re on the go! These brushes always come in handy, keeping anything from sippy cups to bottles germ-free because the tools are designed to reach all those hard places.
Transitions Soft Spout Sippy Cup Set: Durable and leak-proof, perfect when we’re running to the park or out for errands and Bryce gets thirsty. Plus, it’s a great transition cup for those kids who are going from breast feeding to a bottle too, especially with those side grip handles.
Handy Stroller Hook: I love to use my stroller when I’m out shopping with Bryce at when I don’t have the option for a cart. This hook is perfect for carrying those purchases while still being able to push your kiddo around.
Flippy™ Snack Cup with Travel Cover: Bryce is quite the eater. You’d be surprised what he can pack away, so when we are out and about, I’m always bringing snacks with me. This cup has flaps that keep the snacks inside the container and has 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. Perfect to pour in some crackers of Cheerios for a hungry kiddo (and keeps the car or stroller clean!)
There you have it! Whether it’s bringing kiddos along to the beach, going on roadtrips or spending weekends away, our tots are coming along for the ride, and it’s important to be prepared for anything. Be sure to check out OXO Tot products when you are traveling with your little!
What else do you like to have along with you for your toddler?
Bryce looks like he was really getting at that snack! I love all the products that OXO sent – my son especially loves the sippy cup! It’s so helpful to travel with products that you KNOW will function just as they should – no leaks or breaks or unexpected malfunctions. We get enough of that with our little people!
Great post! Hope your travels continue to take you to dreamy places (AKA the grandparents, so you can get a date night out!)
I’m in love with the Wipe dispenser and the hook. So needed when you only have two hands. If only we were octopus. :)
