3 Awesome Travel Products For Moms w/ Little Ones

3 Awesome Travel Products When Your Child Poops

Originally posted on November 30, 2017 by Local Mom Scoop here.

Remember Sharing Is Caring!

Have you ever traveled with your baby and experienced the dreaded diaper blow out?

With my first child, I remember being on our first car trip in the North Carolina mountains. From the front seat, I can hear a curdling sound coming from my daughter’s pants. Then the fumes began to take over. Before I knew it, she yells poopy.

Not only did she go poop, but it was a full blow out. It shot up her back, out of her pants and all of the car set.

When we pulled over, I found my diaper bag to be totally disorganized. The wipes were in one spot, the diaper cream was in another and I totally forgot to pack the changing pad. My husband and I were panicking as you do with your first baby.

Finally, there are actual Travel products that make those blowouts and other travel situations so much easier for you and your baby.

Products On The Go created Little Toes On The Go Diaper Changing Sets. Here are 3 travel products when your child poops!

1. POOP HAPPENS Complete Diaper Sets

These diaper sets come in either one complete diaper set or 3 Complete Diaper Change Sets. It’s just what you need as an ON THE GO mom or dad.

POOP HAPPENS

 

The one set includes:

1 Natural Bamboo Baby Diaper – Available in sizes S-L
2 Natural Diaper Rash Cream Packet
1 Bamboo Natural Baby Wipes Packet (10 wipes included)
1 Biodegradable Hand Sanitizing Wipe

Use the bag to dispose of all the poop. Throw this in your purse, diaper bag or center console of your car.

 

2. POOP HAPPENS SWIMMY STYLE One Complete Diaper Change Set & Sun Care

If you’re traveling to a tropical destination like South Florida, this is the perfect diaper set for your bag. Bring it to the resort and keep in the pool cabana. Throw it in the beach bag or leave a spare at grandma’s house.

The set includes:

4 Must-Haves for Holiday Travel with Babies

products-on-the-go-must-have-for-traveling-with-a-baby

Ho Ho WHOA!! If you’re traveling with a baby this holiday season, that’s what you’ll be saying when you see how much extra STUFF you often find yourself packing for that tiny little one! Who knew such a small creature could require so much gear?

Trying to prepare yourself for a day-trip can be daunting, and a week away can be completely overwhelming. So, we’ve prepared some must-have travel gear to ease the chaos and try to help you be more prepared.

1) Diaper Dash – Pre-packaged diaper changing kits

For on the plane or in the car, you often have a diaper bag full of diapers, a container of wipes, bottles of diaper cream and your changing pad. You have to lug all that gear to the restroom (or another makeshift changing area) along with your baby, take all items out of the bag and find a place to set the bag in that bathroom (remember – all those bathroom germs will be carried around with you afterwards, too). Afterwards, you have to pick up the unused items, including that nasty changing pad, and place them back in your germ-covered bag. Products on the Go and Little Toes have invented pre-packaged diaper changing kits. The kits are eco-friendly, biodegradable, all-natural and include bamboo diapers and cloths, all-natural diaper cream and a disposable changing pad. So, once you’ve cleaned and changed your baby, you simply toss the rest in the garbage. No hassle for you and great for your baby and the planet. Order prepackaged diaper changing kits to make your life happier.

These contain everything you’ll need for a changing, taking the guesswork out of attempting to make sure you’ve brought absolutely everything you’ll need.

2) Caregiver Guidelines – Write a list of items a caregiver should know

Allergies? Picky eater? When Grandma gets her turn to be in charge of the kids, she needs to know these things. Don’t set caregivers up to fail – the best way to share what you think could be potential issues is to write them down and go over the list with the caregiver. Put the list in clear sight and easily accessible. This also works with ground rules. Kids will push boundaries, especially with the people that are most likely to spoil them. Writing down necessary information can put and keep everyone on the same page.

3) Prepare for Fun – Get swimmy diapers and sunscreen before you go

If you live where it’s snowing during these winter months, you may forget that tropical climate does exist — especially where grandparents tend to live. Swimmy diapers and sunscreen aren’t exactly on your mind while you’re in 40-degree weather. If you’re headed South, you’ll likely have access to water parks, swimming pools and the ocean. And because these items are seasonal, you can’t be sure you’ll find them easily at a local retail store, so look to order them online. You can have them shipped to you in advance, or even send them in advance to where you’re staying so you don’t have to have the added gear.

Instead of buying a whole pack of swimmy diapers (that you know your little one will be grown out of by summer), you can purchase a package that contains everything you’d need for a day in the sun. These items are also all-natural and planet-friendly, so you can feel good about putting them on your baby’s sensitive skin. Ordering these grab-n-go day-in-the-sun packages will cut also down on wasted swimmy diapers and ensures you have high-quality natural sunscreen at the ready.

4) Extra Lovies – Order extras of the items your kids love the most

Poochie, Lamby, Blanky — whatever kids call them, these little creatures have been dubbed full-fledge members of your family! And outings and travel can wreak havoc if that dear lovie gets lost. You might even be tempted to dial 9-1- 1 for assistance on finding lovie to avoid tantrums and sleepless nights. If possible, find a duplicate and order several of them. eBay can sometimes be a great outlet for a discontinued toy. Keep a couple at home and bring a couple for the road. Always have one in a safe spot (like the top of the closet at home) where junior can’t access it, but you can in an emergency. You can even try to encourage your little one to fall in love with several lovies (this works best the younger your child is), so if one is missing, another one is an easy substitute. If you’re traveling and lovie goes missing, it could make for a VERY long trip, so stock up early!

Happy Holidays!

Be Prepared: 10 Tips for Traveling with Your Baby for the First Time

Whether visiting a place for the first time or the tenth time, traveling is a fun experience that allows you to see new places or old faces. But traveling with your baby adds a level of stress and chaos that no one can fully prepare for, especially going through it for the first time.

Dealing with the unknown with a baby may make traveling difficult, however here are some tips that will make it easier the first time around:  

Bring snacks

You’ll never know what’s available on the other side of security or on the side of a highway. Airports or rest stops might not even carry children-friendly food. Bringing your child’s favorite snack allows them to have a familiar treat. Just be sure to take note of the amount of sugar since you don’t want a hyper child on your hands. Breastmilk and formula are allowed through security, but have a backup plan just in case you’re met with a security guard on a bad day.

Sign up for TSA Precheck

Adding a layer of ease gives you and your party the opportunity to start the trip off with less stress. Your TSA precheck transfers over to your child if they are 12 years old or younger, according to TSA’s website, so plan accordingly. Streamline the whole security process by skipping that unknown security line and not having to remove shoes, jackets, or liquids.

Review the guidelines

Is your car seat allowed on the plane? Is your child eligible to be a lap child? Will you have to check your stroller? Is your carry-on too big? Review your travel plan along with your airline and TSA’s guidelines to make sure your game plan lines up with all the rules and regulations.

Schedule the bulk of trip around nap time

Best case scenario for the journey there is your baby sleeps through the whole flight or car ride, at least as long as possible. To up the chances of that happening, try to schedule the departure time around when they would naturally sleep. So when they’re laying down they (hopefully) knock right out.

Bring a comfort item

Every child has their favorite cuddle partner. A stuffed animal, blanket, or toy, this item brings them instant comfort. They’re going to be fearful of new surroundings, noises, and smells, so keeping something they love consistent will help soothe them.

Pack all documentation

Usually, children don’t need documentation when flying domestically, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Security has been known to ask for some identification of children. This is especially important when you’re traveling with other people’s children.

Stock up on pre-packaged ready kits

Dragging a diaper bag around hoping you remembered everything you could possible need is painful, both physically and emotionally. And there is still a possibility that security might take it all away. Finding TSA accepted, prepackaged kits with everything you need lets you have peace of mind about having everything you need and be able to keep it.

This diaper set is TSA accepted, and comes in two sizes — one diaper or three diapers — depending on how long your flight is going to be. And don’t forget about yourself, this kit has everything to make your flight more comfortable, all in one package.

Create a home away from home

Constructing an area where both you and your kids feel safe and comfortable, keeps everyone calm. If you like to be cozy, make sure to pack that blanket. If your child usually likes their diaper changed every three hours, be prepared to keep them fresh. Even bring one of the pillows from bed to give a sense of familiarity.

Schedule time to burn off energy

Flying back to back or trying to push an eight-hour car ride in one trek will not only burn out your kids, but also yourself. Giving everyone time to breath and burn off steam is ideal to keep everyone tantrum-free. Scheduling a longer layover, or a schedule pit spot where everyone can stretch their legs and run around.  

Download their favorite shows

Sitting your kid in front of an iPad at dinner makes everyone calmer, why not use that technique on a plane or in a car? Netflix and YouTube Red allow you to download videos and watch them later without being connected to WiFi or data. Just make sure to download them in advance and the device is fully charged.

Benefits of Disposable Bamboo Diapers for Babies

products-on-the-go-bamboo-diaper-benefits-2

A slew of factors go into picking a diaper that will work for your infant. Will it cause a rash? Does it absorb enough liquid? Does it fit correctly? As a parent, you consider all of these questions before strapping just any ol’ diaper on your child.

Parents are bombarded with countless options—both in-store and online—leaving many to settle between the convenience of disposable diapers and the eco-friendly, organic nature of cloth diapers. Fortunately, there’s an option that incorporates both!  

Here are four great reasons to choose disposable bamboo diapers:

Bamboo diapers absorb more liquid than cotton fabric

A diapers main purpose is to store your little bundle of joy’s fluids inside, and keep it there until changing time. Compared to cotton fabric, bamboo diapers absorb and retain nearly twice as much liquid according to the Indian Journal of Fibre & Textile. They keep your baby’s bum and surrounding areas mess-free, while your toddler stays drier (and happier) longer.

Bamboo diapers are chemical-free

Bamboo diapers are free from chlorine, alcohol, preservatives, latex, perfumes, lotions and phthalates—gone are the days of worrying about the purity of what you’re putting on your baby. Unfortunately, most disposable diapers contain dioxins, a byproduct of bleaching the diaper white. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) categorizes dioxins as a highly carcinogenic chemical. Products on the Go bamboo diapers are made using total chlorine-free (TCF) fluff pulp bleaching techniques.

Bamboo diapers are naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic and bacteriostatic (capable of inhibiting the growth or reproduction of bacteria)

Ensuring there is no bacteria between your baby’s kicks, wiggles, and squirms can be difficult. Often, the sheer challenge of getting a new diaper on leaves little time to get little nooks and crannies squeaky clean. With bamboo diapers, you can rest assured that whatever is going on inside the garment is as pure as possible—lowering the risk of rashes, irritation, and allergies.

Bamboo diapers are biodegradable

Regular disposable diapers take about 500 years to decompose—that’s a big carbon footprint. Opting for cloth diapers might seem like the better option, but doing so adds another layer of work to parents’ already tall pile of to-dos. Disposable bamboo diapers decompose in about 75 days, allowing parents the convenience of disposable while staying friendly to the Earth.

At Products on the Go, Dr. Sharon Fried Buchalter, founder and Chief Executive Officer assembled a stylish in-flight comfort kit called the Travel Accessory ReadyPack. Most domestic airlines allow you to bring one personal item such as a backpack, purse, or briefcase and The ReadyPack fits in all of the above. It includes everything you need for a comfortable flight and to arrive in style and refreshed.

First Class Experience on the Go: 8 Ways to Arrive in Style and Comfort

First Class Experience on the Go

Most frequent flyers will tell you, the key to making travel efficient is all in the planning. From making reservations well in advance, allowing yourself plenty of time to navigate through security, to packing smart, the best way to take some of the stress out of traveling is to plan ahead as much as possible. Here is a series of expert tips to ensure your travel experience is first class all the way, no matter where you’re headed.

  1. Avoid extra fees. Plan ahead if you are checking a bag, or ensure your carry on meets FAA and airline requirements and size restrictions. Use your smartphone as your boarding pass to avoid printing fees (and save trees), pay in advance and find coupons to save on Wi-Fi. Generally, if you purchase Wi-Fi before you board your flight, it can cost significantly less than if you wait until you reach your seat.
  2. B.Y.O.F. (Bring Your Own Food!). Nothing puts a damper on the thrill of a getaway faster than a soggy sandwich that costs $12. For the sake of convenience and cost effectiveness, bring along your favorite snacks to avoid becoming “hangry” and/or poor. A great combo is a homemade salad to nosh on while waiting at the gate, and then a bag of almonds and some fancy chocolates to enjoy in-flight. Think of it this way, if you’re bringing something healthy from home, you won’t feel so bad splurging on an airport treat like fro-yo, a smoothie, or a gigantic cinnamon roll with that amazing gooey glaze that you can’t get at home. It’s okay to indulge; you’re on vacation, after all.
  3. Drink up. Bring an empty water bottle through security and fill it up at a drinking fountain on the way to your gate. Not only is it better for the environment, but you will be happy and hydrated while wait to board the aircraft, take off, reach your cruising altitude, and wait again until the beverage cart finally reaches you. Plus, staying hydrated helps fight off jet lag so you’re ready to start the fun as soon as you touch down at your destination.
  4. Invest in a good travel pillow. You can get some quality shut eye in those economy seats, but only with the right gear. If you want to avoid neck pain, a quality neck pillow is key. Pro-tip: an eye mask makes a great compliment to a neck pillow for the most restful sleep. It’s a wearable do not disturb sign.
  5. Don’t leave home without earphones. Earphones are right up there on the list with your wallet and your kid. If you inadvertently leave on of those behind, the rest of your trip will surely be a disaster. Seriously, you need earphones for air travel for a variety of reasons: to drown out noise that may interfere with your travel zen, to send the message to your seat neighbor that you’re not interested in hearing why they were in Memphis, and of course to catch a movie or some in-flight TV. The possibilities are endless, but only if you have earphones!
  6. Be strategic when selecting a seat. Whether you’re a nervous flyer, someone with a tiny bladder, or just looking for some peace and quiet, there’s a seat that’s perfect for you. If you are a person who will need to get up a few times during the flight, or you’re tall, then an aisle seat will allow you to get up as much as possible without disrupting other passengers. Travel and Leisure recommends choosing a seat forward on the wings, for a quieter ride with less jet noise. If you have a connection to make, a seat closest to the front is your best bet for quickly getting off a flight and on to the next.
  7. Get Cozy. Don’t forget to bring a scarf, sweater or cozy sweatshirt (style tip: pairs well with eye-mask for chic travel affect) or even a blanket to keep warm, particularly at higher altitudes. Socks are nice to have, too and can make all the difference.
  8. Bring along some toiletries. The recycled air and lack of ventilation can really take a toll on your skin. Be sure to bring along a small spray bottle of water, some light moisturizer, lip balm, and gum. This is the perfect combination to keep you looking and feeling fresh.

Travel is about exploration, expansion, and experience. Get out there and enjoy yourself in comfort and style, ready for anything – because you live life on the go!

Q and A With Dr. Sharon

Products on the Go is all about happiness

Ever wondered what inspired the groundbreaking lifestyle brand, Products on the Go®? We sat down with founder and CEO Dr. Sharon Fried Buchalter to learn about what inspires her to help people.

 

Q: How do the daily pressures of modern life cause us to be stressed?

A: I’ve worked for many years as a psychologist and marriage and family therapist and I see stress as the biggest complaint of most patients. We’re out the door, at the office, uploading photos, reading articles and eating dinner out all while accomplishing more in a single day than any society before us, which is great. It also means we are really busy, all the time. When we discover we can’t fit in everything that’s important, we become stressed.

Q: How do Products on the Go cut down on stress?

A: The sets are designed with the consumer in mind; the average person. I wanted to create a solution to the stress, so I did it through products that make things easier for people who are busy. My products simply allow people to spend more time doing what they want to do and less time shopping.

Q: Can you describe some of these Products?

A: We have five prepackaged lines and in there are products that you would normally buy for a specific event or purpose, say for example, changing a diaper. Everything is in there, all-natural, eco-friendly and recyclable, there for you. All you have to do it use it, put it back in the bag, and throw it out.

Q: So what’s in the diaper changing set?

A:Well it’s called Poop Happens, because it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. We have a bamboo diaper (it’s so soft!), bamboo wipes, diaper rash cream, the diaper changing pad which is disposable, and hand sanitizer for after.

Q: Wow! What are some other Products on the Go?

A: In addition to prepackaged sets, we also wanted to look at the lifestyles of teens and tweens so we developed a sunscreen with shimmer and sparkle. The Sun Bomb Action and Sun Potion Princess sunscreens are a favorite with kids and parents because it’s fun to wear and looks great in addition to providing great protection and all-natural ingredients.

Q: Anything else we should know about Products on the Go?

A: Really just that they’re made with you in mind. Our collections allow consumers to reduce the hassle, shopping time, and pressure related to purchasing individual items by offering everything you need in one easy to grab pack. We know you work hard, that is why we at Products on the Go strive to simplify your life at home, on vacation, or anywhere you go.
