Summer Travel Essentials for Baby

Now that we're settled into summer, your vacation is probably creeping closer. Whether you're taking a vacation far away from home, or simply adventuring out in your own area, there are plenty of must-haves that you and baby will need. Being prepared to handle messy situations when away from home is the best way to help you feel - and stay - in control. So enjoy your upcoming trip and be sure to pack your bags with these essentials:

Front or Back Carrier - Carriers are a great way to keep baby close, while keeping your hands free. Best of all, they don't have to be expensive. Many carriers cost less than $30, which means you can buy an inexpensive one just for vacation time. Make sure you handle all the adjustments before you leave home so you're not fiddling with it at the amusement park.

Portable High Chairs - These portable seats clip right on to any table and fold up when done. There are many different styles, but all fold up compactly and come with a handy carry bag. They serve as a great way to keep baby clean while eating, as well as in a familiar seat. Some chairs hook up to the table and allow baby to eat there, while others have their own tray.

Sun Cabana - Cabanas are super lightweight and can be tossed in any diaper bag for sun protection at the park or beach. Many have UV protection as well and come in fun colors.

Sleep Tents - If your family loves camping, don't think you can't take baby along. There are special "sleep anywhere" tents that include an inflatable mattress for baby to sleep. These sleep tents also have UV protection and can be used in place of a cabana. Here's to naps on the beach!

Umbrella Stroller - Sure, joggers are great, but when you're vacationing, you'll want something lightweight. Try an aluminum-framed umbrella stroller that can be tossed in the car with little effort. Some can be expensive, but many cost under $40.

Bottle Warmer - When baby is ready to eat, don't let him or her wait it out. A bottle warmer can heat up baby's bottle in a few short minutes. Some use the outlet in the car, while others are made for on-the-go use.

Waterproof Picnic Blankets - They're soft and colorful and perfect for a sunny day. Plus, waterproof picnic blankets fold up and have their own matching carry cases. One side is for sitting, while the other acts as a waterproof barrier, keeping out moisture.

Insulated Food Packs - Keep food and drinks cool with insulated packs. Trendier than ever, these packs have convenient pockets and carry handles that make versatile and lightweight. They're great for jars of baby food, sippy cups and water bottles for Mom and Dad.

  3. One acknowledges that men's life is expensive, however we require cash for different things and not every man gets big sums cash. So to receive quick loan or just commercial loan should be a proper solution.

  12. My daughter got this for her first birthday. She loves to ride on it while her big brother pushes it. She loves to push it around herself. It is extremely well made, and the wheels roll nicely. It is low enough that my daughter can get on and off by herself.
