Like most mama’s, I have tried to capture every special moment and every milestone. I want to make sure that I am able to remember them forever. My sweet, sweet friend Lisa McQueeney from the Camera’s Eye has made that a reality for me from day one.
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.
