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.
Packing for any trip can be stressful. Add in the fact that you are pregnant and probably don’t fit into your go-to items, it can be overwhelming. And you may not feel super cute (depending on how pregnant you are) which just complicates things even more. I’ve made the mistake of packing clothes that were non-maternity and didn’t fit or maternity clothes that made me feel frumpy. Not a great way to start a vacation.
As a Mom of a toddler, my “uniform” usually consists of yoga pants and some sort of sweatshirt. We like to be out and about and he’s always on the go, so it’s important that I’m comfortably able to play with him on the floor or run around with him at the park. But, sometimes I feel a bit boring in my “uniform” and want to pop some fun back into my wardrobe. That’s where LuLaRoe fits in!
I was really hesitant to buy nursing clothes after the birth of my first son because everything I saw looked so frumpy and cumbersome. I ended up just wearing regular shirts. This meant I had to expose my tummy to nurse my son when I was out and about. Normally I’d be fine with that, but it was winter and I was cold and it made the whole nursing experience feel make-shift and I didn’t like that. When I had my second son, I knew I needed to really search for some nice nursing clothes. That’s where Bun Maternity fits in.
When I was pregnant with my first baby, I developed Placenta Previa. That’s a condition where the placenta covers the cervix. I was on bed rest for about half of my pregnancy. Some of it was at home and some was in the hospital. They both have their benefits and drawbacks, but neither of them is how anyone envisions spending their pregnancy.
After finding out that we were pregnant again, I immediately starting thinking about all the things I’d do differently this pregnancy. Of course, I’ll still take my prenatal vitamins and go to all my doctor’s visits. But there are still a lot of options out there. It’s kind of like traveling somewhere you’ve already been before: where do you revisit, where do you skip and what new adventures would you like to check out?
When I found out I was pregnant for the second time, one of the first things I did was secure my maternity photo shoot. I know that sounds totally crazy, but I had a complicated pregnancy last time and spent my whole 3rd trimester in the hospital. Taking maternity photos was my chance to really celebrate this pregnancy and our growing family.
