This is probably a weekend of travel for many families so I want to list all the things that make our family trips easier. The two things that we cannot absolutely travel without is the JEEP diaper backpack and the Guava travel bed. When my little one was just a couple months old I started to search for the perfect travel bed as our family lives far away. My friend told me about the Guava travel beds and I fell in love. We got the Lotus Everywhere travel crib. It was perfect and safe! I wanted a travel crib that was easy to fold and light to carry, but the most important part was for it to have mesh everywhere and even at the bottom. Most travel cribs have solid lining around the bottom and I was uncomfortable with that. I wanted to make sure that my baby was safe. As a new mom I was worried about SIDS and my little one loved to sleep face down with his nose stuck into anything he found. I didn’t have to worry about that with this travel bed because everything is open. Not only was it great for travel but my little one loved to play in it too! It is on the pricey side but it has been a great investment.
2 words to describe it: Light (for travel) & Safe (for sleep and play)

The other product that I love and wish I knew about in the first few months when I had my baby is the JEEP diaper backpack. I went through three diaper bags before I found this one. Not only is it easy for travel and your significant other won’t be embarrassed to carry it around, but also it has many storage pockets. There is a special pocket for wipes on the side to make them easily accessible as well as plenty of other pockets to fit pacifiers, snacks, diapers, and a bottle. It helps me organize and know where everything is so I can grab it fast if I need to. It also has attachments to hang on the stroller if needed. Being a new mom I have learned that accessibility and organization is so important, especially when your little one wants their pacifier and you can’t find it. Add it to your shopping list!
