So we've been traveling a lot more then expected this month, which has pushed back a few things to get published one week too long. Some of our favorites have changed and others have remained constant, but overall I think our travel gear has been our favorite stuff this month.
As you know Eli and I had the pleasure of flying for the first time together. These are the items we have come to love even more since traveling.
Rockin' Baby Sling: As you all know there are a various amount of carriers, slings, wraps and more for carting around your kid. Seriously, the consumer baby world is full of them. My good friend Becky purchased this sling as a gift for Eli's shower/birth/congratsgoodjob and we LOVE it. In fact my husband loves it to. The moby is great and I'm not knockin' any product here, if it works for you, awesome. But we love this because it's one item. No fumbling with wrapping, no adjusting (well, maybe a little), you throw it on and go. Honestly I didn't know if they would have me take Eli out at security in the airport (some airports still do), so I didn't know to use something with a whole bunch of buckles and wraps that would take forever. I'm not a fan of holding up others in line, so this worked perfectly for us.
Britax Convertible Seat: Britax is a world leading car seat manufacture, I believe originating from Europe. Their constant safety and technology updates in their seats is what makes them awesome. Seriously. Eli hated his infant seat, I mean hated with a passion. Car rides with him were not fun. At. All. We switched him to a convertible seat and lo and behold, the screams stopped and he seamed happier overall. I think the infant seat was leaned way too far back for him and he loves to look around and just couldn't. The only downfall with this seat is it's size. It's huge. There's no good way of putting it, britax does not make seats for small cars. Even their infant seats are large. We are looking at a smaller seat for a our compact sedan, but for now, this is what we have. We make it work.
Sophie: Our teething babe has fallen head over heals with his Sophie giraffe and we love her. She's cute, she's safe, she squeaks and she won't break! The company has other toys besides Sophie, we have yet to try out but Sophie is our favorite so far.
That's what I can think of as our current favorites this month, of course there are more but these are our top. Enjoy!
