With determination and full speed ahead, I prepped, planned, stressed, and prepped some more. Here are the top ten things I’ve learned about taking a road trip with an infant!
Before Ellianna’s arrival, I did all kinds of research on how I wanted to document her life. My mother took the time to scrapbook and record the best moments my childhood and it’s one of the things I cherish most as an adult. Looking back through those wonderful years is a blessing and it was something I wanted to give Ellianna as well.
I can still picture myself sitting on the playroom floor staring at her toys and wondering “what the heck should I pack to keep her entertained?!” In all honesty, I could have given her pretty much anything at the ripe old age of 3 months…
If your baby is struggling to take a bottle, or if you know a mama that’s having a hard time, I would HIGHLY recommend giving Comotomo a chance. I’m not saying it’s a definite fix for everyone. God knows, each of our babies are different, but if you have the few dollars to spare, it’s totally worth a try.
For the first few months of my daughter’s life, the need for a car kit never crossed my mind. I always packed (or stuffed) everything I needed into the diaper bag and we were on our way. Almost every time we left the house I would inevitably forget something essential. I pride myself on being a very organized person, but “mom brain” is a very real thing.
My parents have given my sister and I many incredible gifts throughout our lifetime. One of the greatest gifts is the ability to look back through our childhood in pictures and film. Our favorite pastime involves sitting around the television watching old home videos. We love to reminisce about all the funny, wonderful things we did.
