When people ask you what it’s like traveling with babies and toddlers, does a specific moment
come to mind? For me, it totally depends on my mood whether I think of a funny moment or
one that was downright terrifying!
So, I thought I’d write up my most memorable family travel moments and my top essentials for
traveling with a baby in this sponsored post for Signature Care Diapers, which are available at
Safeway and Albertsons.
A Look Back at 2017
Like many of you, I’m spending today reflecting back on 2017. At this time last year, our family was trying to balance a newborn and toddler while settling into our new home. We also were nervous for our first family trip. To say that it was a stressful time would be an understatement!
After the birth of my first son, I was a little worried that my traveling days were over for awhile. I had heard many of my friends vow never to fly with their children. Others just left their kids with grandparents. And almost all of them said they wouldn’t take their kids anywhere until “they could remember it.” But, we really wanted to family travel work for us. And so far so good! See my top 5 tips for traveling with a baby.
When I was pregnant with my oldest, I was on bed rest for many months. It sucked. I mean, it REALLY sucked. But, it gave me lots of time to shop online.
Mostly, I shopped for my baby because it was the only nesting I could physically do.

My youngest son is turning one year old next week. This year has flown by! The transition from one kid to two kids has been a great learning experience for all of us.
My oldest son is really enjoying his role as the older brother. We give him lots of jobs to do to help with his brother.
Did you know there was a convention for all things Mommy-related? MommyCon focuses on new and expectant families through toddlerhood. It’s been held in many cities across the U.S. and recently expanded to Canada. MommyCon Vancouver was July 22, 2017 at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel. Since I live outside of Seattle, I packed up my 9-month-old and we headed up to Vancouver, BC for the weekend. I visited Vancouver last summer when I was pregnant and brought my toddler.

Bringing a baby and a preschooler to the Disneyland Resort may sound overwhelming to some people. However it doesn’t have to be.
Thorough planning ahead of time has been the key to my family enjoying a relaxing day at the park. And knowing what to take to Disneyland.
We’ve been traveling a lot this past winter and spring. The dry air has really been bothering me lately. My skin has been so dried out and it’s lost its glow. When Cocolivo contacted me about reviewing their skin care product, I was intrigued. Cocolivo is a vegan product from Canada that combines organic coconut, olive and avocado oil.
For those with small children, you know the struggle of constantly picking up toys that get tossed around the house. I usually have my oldest son pick up his stuff and put it in his room. He has some storage cubes and he knows where he’s supposed to put his toys. I want to do the same with my youngest. But finding good-quality storage solutions that can survive toddlerhood can be tricky. Thankfully, Kaikai & Ash saved my day!
When I found out I was pregnant for the second time I started to take inventory of the baby products I had. I’m usually a fairly frugal person and I’m all for re-using items.
I figured I was all set for baby items. Then I really thought about what I liked and disliked about the products I used with my oldest. I realized that I bought a lot of items without doing much research.
