Top Tips And Tricks for Flying With The Little Ones This Holiday Season

Throw All Anxieties Away, Because Parenting Expert & PishPoshBaby Chief Brand Officer Julie McCaffrey Has The Top Tips And Tricks for Flying With The Little Ones This Holiday Season

It’s inevitable–whether it’s the upcoming holiday season or summer, you’re going to have to travel by air with your kids in tow someday. When that day comes, knowing what and how to pack for the flight and trip can save you time, space, effort, money, and…even your sanity! However, are you worried that your flight with the kiddos will be nothing short of a total stress-fest?

Throw all anxieties aside, because Parenting Expert Julie McCaffrey, mom and Chief Brand Office of PishPoshBaby, has tried-and-tested tips and tricks for traveling with the little ones. She made her list into an infographic to help other moms and dads have less stressful flight experiences with kids. Julie knows that traveling by air with children is no mean feat, but her list has helped her and it is sure to be of great interest to all of the parents in your audience.

From snacks that serve the dual purpose of keeping kids busy while satisfying hunger, to the correct number of diapers to bring along in the kiddie travel bag, Julie’s infographic and written tips will help all parents who have upcoming flights with kids:

A Smooth Flight With The Kiddos

Pack the Essentials First:

As the infographic shows, the essentials should be the first ones to go into your kiddie travel bag. These include:

  1. Travel hand sanitizer
  2. Acetamophin or Motrin and a measuring dropper.  A doctor-approved decongestant. Also, pack medicine in an outside pocket, as you will have to remove it (all liquids) when you pass through security.
  3. Tissues in a Ziploc bag
  4. DVD player, iPad, Gameboy, or other gadgets to keep the kids busy for hours
  5. Wipes in a Ziploc bag
  6. Two changes of clothes for baby. Full change of clothes for all children under age six. Change of T-shirt for older kids. (Keep in mind that when your kids look neat and cute, other passengers will be more patient.)
  7. Diapers (Divide the amount of hours from when you leave your house until you arrive at your final destination by two)
  8. A pacifier clipped on baby, plus one spare set of pacifier and clip
  9. Blanket for baby
  10. Your child’s favorite blanket or Teddy Bear to help her feel like she has a piece of home anywhere you all go.
  11. Sweaters, because it can get cold on the plane at any season
  12. Baby bottle plus a spare
  13. Bibs (the amount varies by age)
  14. An empty Sippy cup for toddlers and small empty 8-oz. spout water bottles for kids three years and up. Airline regulations do not allow you to bring drinks in, so fill the bottles once you get on the flight.
  15. Sandwiches cut into bite-size pieces in Ziploc bags. Snack food that do not melt, get sticky, or crumble. Cheerios, Animal Crackers, pretzels, cucumber sticks, chicken fingers, and lollies on sticks are good ideas.
  16. Drawing paper, crayons, books (depending on your child’s age)
  17. Their favorite books
  18. Snacks that serve a dual purpose: keeping the kids busy while addressing the munchies, such as button candy and jelly beans
  19. Some chewing gum to help alleviate air pressure before the take-off and landing

Must-Know Flight Basics

  • Get a roomy travel bag for the kids that will not exceed the airline’s hand-carried luggage limit.
  • Pack efficiently. You shouldn’t have to access the overhead storage more than once before landing.
  • Prepare the kids before the flight, especially if it’s their first time. Telling them what to expect and how they should behave can eliminate or at least keep the inconveniences to a minimum.
  • Dress your kids in soft cotton leggings/trousers, and T-shirts. These clothes will make them comfortable and encourage them to behave better. They also don’t take up much room in your luggage.
  • Before packing stuff that will entertain your kids, check first what your flight offers. Do you have a charger at your seat to keep gadgets working? Do you have personal screens so the kids can watch programs during the flight?
  • Airline-certified baby gear like lightweight strollers that meet luggage standards can help you go through security in a speedy and fuss-free manner.

Heart Felt Baby Wrap, Dryer Balls and SquishDelish Review & Giveaway

Cover

 

I guess you could call me a “semi-crunchy” mom.  I am pro breast feeding, baby wearing, and taking advantage of as many reusable things as we can for our children.  I do not practice ALL things crunchy, but I am by no means judgmental of any mamas who do.  When approached with the Heart Felt bundle of products, I knew that we would be able to use all of these products on a daily basis.

I learned about baby wearing when my now two year old was about 6 months old, and quickly embraced.  I really lost out on wrap time with him because by the time he was 6 months old, he was getting to be too heavy for the stretchy wraps I had discovered.  But with Nolan, who is now 7 months old, we utilized a wrap carrier right away.  Since he is a bit smaller than his older brother was at his age, I am still able to use a wrap when I need to get a few things done around the house, or just to snuggle him close and let him enjoy some cuddle time by being worn.

The Heart Felt Wrap was extremely manageable.  Some of the wraps I have tried before are too much fabric for my liking, but Heart Felt had just the right amount, and you could feel the quality, thickness, and just enough give in the fabric.

wrap

Nolan was happy as a clam to be wrapped so I could get some work done without having to chase him around the house.  He JUST learned how to get up our steps from our sunken in living room, and our toddler does not like to keep the playpen closed, so it is a constant battle to keep up with this little speedster now.  This is why I love babywearing, I can get so much more done AND snuggle my littles!

inwrap

I didn’t only get to try out the amazing Heart Felt wrap, but I also received the Heart Felt dryer balls.  I was familiar with the concept of dryer balls, but had never really used them in the past.  So I was excited to give these a try.   Heart Felt dryer balls are PURE New Zealand wool, with no fillers.  They are heavy and tightly woven wool, and you can tell that there is nothing else in them.  On the website, you can also see one cut in half to view the solid wool structure.

dryerballs
So what exactly do these dryer balls do?  They work to circulate air in your tumble dry cycle and avoid clumping as well as absorb moisture to help cut down on drying time and save you time and $.  They are available for purchase on amazon.com

It is also recommended that you use essential oils to naturally scent laundry, by placing a drop or two on each dryer ball before running the dryer with the Heart Felt wool balls.  Unfortunately I did not have any handy, but essential oils are on my list for the next trip to the store so I can try this out to naturally scent our laundry.

The third product that came in our gift pack was a pack of reusable squeeze pouches.  We used these over and over again when Hunter was just beginning to eat, so that we could take pureed food to restaurants with us or just for a day out on the town.  Hunter still loves his applesauce and yogurt pouches, and we recently started solids with Nolan, so I know he will be getting lots of use out of these too.

squish

 

I love that these pouches have a clear space on the back to see what is inside of each pouch, as well as how much is left in the pouch.  In addition, there is a place to label what is in each pouch and what date you “squished” the ingredients.  This comes in handy when you make batches of different purees for your baby and want to remember each item’s shelf life.

The pouches are also very durable, I tried squeezing them with the cap on to see if the zipper would budge and leak (because we all know how things get tossed around in our diaper bags… and the last thing I need is to find applesauce covered EVERYTHING in my bag!)  I was pleasantly surprised with the durability of the material used, and they are PVC-free and BPA-free.

kidapproved

Hunter loved the Squish Delish pouches, and the dogs were intrigued as well.  I think they were hoping for a leak or spill, but that wasn’t happening here!

everyoneloves

Everything you read about here today can be purchased on Amazon.com.  Here is a direct link to the Heart Felt Wrap in Grey or Black,  Heart Felt Dryer Balls, and Squish Delish.  Perfect gifts for the crunchy or semi crunchy mom in your life!

Heart Felt Giveaway

One winner will receive a Heart Felt Baby Wrap, Heart Felt Hooded Baby Towel, 6 pack of Heart Felt Dryer Balls, 2 packs of Squishies packs and a diaper wet bag!.

Giveaway ends December 3rd at 11:59pm, open to US and Canadian residents, ages 18+. Only one entrant per household, per address. Winner is subject to eligibility verification. Enter using the giveaway form below. Good luck!

Spot Free for the Baby Years and Beyond with Dreft!

Dreft Stain Remover Eliminate tough stains on your baby’s clothes, bedding and blankets using Dreft Stain Remover. Its advanced cleaning system safely removes the odors and stains caused by food spillage, spit-up, urine, formulas and more. The unique composition of the stain remover works well on all fabrics, at all temperatures. The flame-resistant capability of babies’ sleepwear is not affected by the stain remover. Why You’ll Love It: The Stain Remover by Dreft is formulated to work effectively on all types of stains with its gentle cleansing formula.

dreft review 2

I have children running in my house, and outside (through the dirt) Nuff’ said right? They make messes, lots of messes. On the walls, floor, their faces, and of course on their clothes. Clothes which I put a pretty penny into buying, so it is important that I am able to maintain them.  So I was thrilled to hear that Dreft wanted to send over a Dreft Laundry Stain Remover, Dreft Portable Pretreater Pen, and a travel sized Dreft Laundry Stain remover for review.

When the kids were babies Dreft was the go to product for me for laundry day.  Even now that they are out of the baby stage, I still prefer the softness and gentleness of Dreft products on their clothes. Upon seeing a spot, I immediately put the stain remover to use, spraying every spot that trickled through my hands on laundry day. New stains as well as ones that had already been washed and dried and I was pleased to see how well it worked with just a few minutes of soaking prior to the wash.

dreft review 1

Dreft Laundry Stain Remover full size and travel  is the first line of defense against dirt and stains.  I hang right above my washer and used it on every piece of stained up item of clothing in the house. It works as well or better than “stronger” stain removers but it is formulated to be gentle. It is handy having a small travel bottle on hand to leave in the car or  in my bag for spills that occur constantly for moms and kids.

The Dreft Portable Pretreater Pen is a handy stain pretreater pen went right into my purse so that  while we were out when the inevitable food and drink fell onto one of our shirts I could stop it from setting in. This would be a great item to pop into a basket of baby items for the new mom or slip one into a diaper cake- these things would work wonders on spit up stains.

IMG_1989

Overall,  I am really pleased with the results that the Dreft stain removing line gave me on a variety of different stains.  I will continue to purchase these products to care for my kids clothing-but not only there clothes, I was able to use it on clothing for the whole family with great results.  If you have delicate fabrics like silk blends, and linens that you do not want to use a harsher chemical on these products would be ideal.

BabySpa Bath Time Happiness + Giveaway

My favorite time of day is when we wind down and start our bedtime routine. After a long day of running around it is great to quietly slow the pace and focus on just one little being in front of me. From bath to bed, each kid gets some well-deserved one on one attention.

We were recently introduced to BabySpa products and their line of skin care products tailored to children’s skin based on age. This is a great new logical concept. Their stage 1 products are made specifically for babies from infancy through the crawling months. Stage 2 is geared towards walking children through the preschool years. They take into consideration that the older toddlers spend time outdoors, and therefore are exposed to the sun and the wind much more than the delicate babies.

BabySpa Review. Healing and Soothing Baby Skincare

We received the Baby Essentials, stage 1 basket to review. Although we were provided the products the opinions are all our own, especially my children’s. The basket included the following items:

  • 3 in 1 Tearless Shampoo, Body Wash and Moisturizer
  • Moisturizing Body Lotion
  • Shea Butter Diaper Cream
  • Ultra Soft Baby Wipes
  • Face Cream

The presentation of the BabySpa products was perfect for a baby shower or new baby present. As a matter of fact, one of my dearest friends is having a baby this week and I will get her one of these gift sets.

BabySpa Review

Shea Butter Diaper Cream:
The arrival of the BabySpa items could not have been more timely. Our two year old developed a red and painful diaper rash just a few hours before the UPS guy rang our doorbell. I was excited to try the Shea Butter Diaper Cream as quickly as I could tear into the box. Our toddler reacted instantly to the cream being applied to his raw diaper rash. He paused a moment, I asked if he was OK and he replied “mama, give me more of that cream!” I happily obliged and he was content. We continued to apply the cream through bed time, and in the morning his skin was smooth and pink, not red and raw.

3 in 1 Tearless Shampoo, Body and Moisturizer:
During the evening bath for our two youngest boys (9 months and 2 years old) I washed both of them with the 3 in 1 wash. It lathered so nicely in their hair, I felt that they got a good deep clean and that all the germs and grime from the day were washed away. Their skin was left lightly scented, smooth and not at all dry, like some of the washes can do to a baby’s delicate skin.

Moisturizing Body Lotion:
Both of our little boys received a quick massage with the body lotion. They really enjoyed the closeness of the massage and I loved how soft and baby-delightful their skin was. These products are very lightly scented, nothing overwhelming, but really pleasant and natural.

BabySpa Happiness. Skincare for Babies and Toddlers

Ultra Soft Baby Wipes:
The wipes were first used on Jansen’s raw rash, which went over much better than I had expected. This proved that the ingredients are truly natural and exactly the things you want to put on a baby’s delicate skin. The wipes were moist enough to wipe a dirty bottom clean without having to use force or an excessive amount of wipes. I prefer to use these wipes over any of the other brands that we have laying around the house. I love that the ingredients are natural and they were durable and moist to perfection.

The Face Cream:
Our 9 month old baby is going through a rough patch of “face meets floor” as he is crawling, cruising along furniture and trying his luck at standing whenever possible. He currently has a big scab on his forehead and nose from a failed attempt at crawling. The BabySpa Face Cream came in handy, as I wanted to keep the scrapes from drying out and leaving him with scars. The cream was surprisingly thick, yet after the application it appeared very light and perfectly moisturizing. I have continued to apply the cream to Jonah’s face for the past several days and his scab are healing nicely – hopefully without leaving any scars at all.

I am thoroughly impressed and pleased with the natural baby skin care products in the BabySpa package. The ingredients are natural, which is rather evident in the quality of the product and how it leaves the skin feeling. I am excited to pick up a basket of the Stage 2 products next time I am at the store. As the mother of four boys here in South Florida we are always on the hunt for natural skin care for our sun, sand and wind exposed bodies. BabySpa has filled the need for natural skin care for young delicate skin.

One winner will receive a BabySpa Prize Package.

Giveaway ends November 25th at 11:59pm, open to US residents, ages 18+. Only one entrant per household, per address. Winner is subject to eligibility verification. Enter using the giveaway form below. Good luck!

Our Mission is to provide the safest possible products in the marketplace that actually work. We believe it should be simple when searching for safe and non-toxic products to use & we confirm, to the best of our knowledge, based on information from suppliers and manufacturing partners, that our products are completely safe to use. We’ve even made it easier for you by allowing you to see the certifications of individual products.

Since we are a few months into Baby #2, I decided to customize my own box.  I am going to call it the “Teething Box.”  After browsing the many products available on the site, I realized that I already had many of the baby and post baby mama products, but I was lacking in the teething department, which Baby #2 is already full throttle into.

teethingbox

I customized my box with an adorable teething necklace, safe for baby to gnaw away on while I hold him; a Cornelius Teething Toothbrush; “My Dentist’s Choice Teeth Tissues,” and my little “bonus” product was a Monkey Mat.  The Monkey Mat really has nothing to do with teething, but since we are always on the go, this was a perfect addition to my custom box, because the 5’x5′ mat folds up into a nifty zip up pouch, has weighted corners and has hooks to attach teething toys to for when baby is crawling around.

If you or a friend is having a rough beginning to pregnancy with the morning sickness, etc, try the “Be Well” box, with ginger lozenges, organic morning wellness tea, a sea-band morning sickness accupressure wristband, and other great morning sickness remedies.

There is a box for baby, a box for green cleaning products, and you can build your own box to fit your budget or goal for your gift to the new mom (or dad) to be.  Bump Boxes offer everything from Dad Essentials, to postpartum, to fertility essentials.  All of the products sold on Bump Boxes are meant to be the most natural products on the market that work.  The concept is to keep us and our children safe while providing the best possible products for the pre-during-and post-baby times.

Bump Boxes are the perfect gift to send to someone who may not live close by, at any stage of their pregnancy or beyond.  I have often struggled with what to get someone who is having a second or third child, or for one of my friends when they are struggling with morning sickness or breast feeding issues.  Bump Boxes have it all!

Treat Cradle Cap on Baby’s Scalp with Baby Oil

Cradle cap is just one name for an unsightly rash or dandruff like condition that is common in babies under a few years old. This is characterized by thick, yellow and brown scaling on the scalp and in some cases other areas of the body, like neck, knees, and other places where the body creases. It may also resemble eczema, and it takes a trip to the doctor to determine whether your little one has relatively innocuous cradle cap or the much more problematic eczema. Cradle cap is much preferable to the latter simply because it doesn’t really bother infants diagnosed with it.

Extreme cases may become itchy, but before then it’s nothing more than an annoyance for the parents. It’s natural to feel distress when you think your baby might be hurting, so before going into detail about treatment, take a moment to meditate on the fact that your baby is not experiencing any pain from this condition. Thankfully there are treatments that, over the course of a few weeks, typically can cure or at least diminish the presence of cradle cap. The use of baby oil is the least harsh (compared to prescription shampoos) and is the first line of defense against cradle cap.

Cradle Cap Isn’t Your Fault

Again, before we go on we should set your mind at ease: cradle cap is not associated with poor hygiene or allergies, according to Baby Center. This is a very common situation and it’s not your fault. By the time your baby is a year old it will almost certainly have cleared up entirely.  So you can move on guilt free to how help your baby without worrying that you’re going to make it worse.

Apply Oil

baby oilThe first step towards getting rid of those hard scabs is to apply baby oil to them. You can start by using a pure, clean baby oil made from vegetables or you can use simple olive oil. Baby oil is recommended because the high quality blend of ingredients from brands like Honest Company will have other benefits to skin outside of softening the scabs. For the practical side, however, vegetable based oils will do. Warm the oil slightly so that it’s more comfortable for the baby and then apply to the scalp with your fingertips, especially in areas with a lot of scabbing.

Massage In

Just letting the oil sit is enough for mild cases; about 15 minutes is recommended so the scabs have lots of time to soften and loosen. If your baby’s cradle cap is more severe you can do a light fingertip head massage to really get it into the cracks and dry, flakey areas of the scalp. This is often a very relaxing sensation for baby as well, and will help confirm that they really aren’t bothered by the cradle cap themselves; your baby shouldn’t show any pain when their scalp is massaged despite how it looks.

Apply Shampoo

Once the 15 minutes are up it’s time to get that oil off. Baby shampoo sales account for more than 30 million dollars of sales in the United States each year, according to Statista, and once you try to wash oil off a baby’s scalp you’re going to see why. It’s very important that you get all of the oil off, so you might want to leave the shampoo on for a few minutes as well, though not nearly so long as the oil.

Rinse Thoroughly

Don’t be surprised if you see flakes of skin or scabs come off while you’re rinsing. This is a natural result of the oil and is actually exactly what you want to happen. When you’re rinsed thoroughly, check your baby’s scalp for any lingering traces of oil. Oil is a great moisturizer, but when left on a scalp can lead to clogging and other problems much worse than cradle cap, according to Parenting. If your baby’s scalp still feels oily, reapply the shampoo and massage it in before rinsing thoroughly again. You can’t be too careful when it comes to this. Just try not to over shampoo and dry the baby’s scalp out again.

Rub Babies Head with a Damp Cloth

Once all the shampoo and extra oil is off, you can move on to the last step. You can use either a soft brush or a terry cloth to gently go over the areas of your baby’s scalp that are still scabbed or flaky. Don’t peel off anything that doesn’t “want” to come off, so to speak, as tampering with it can lead to problems such as bleeding. Sometimes a scab needs an extra push and sometimes what it needs is a few more days of treatment with baby oil before it’s ready to come off. Don’t worry and don’t rush; you should see a lot of improvement within a few short weeks.

WaterWipes Natural Baby Wipes Review & Giveaway

When my daughter, Ryleigh, was born two months ago we didn’t have much funding to be having two kids in diapers. I have always been that mom that bought whatever the cheapest wipe was and sometimes that meant sacrificing quality to save money. I started noticing that my newborn was having rashes. My first thought was that it was because I was using the wrong diapers with her, so I switched brands. The rash was still there. I was at a loss as to what the problem could be, but then I was told by a fellow mother that it could be the wipes that I was using that could be irritating her skin. I never would have attributed her irritated skin to the wipes that I was using to clean her up after her messes that she would make. I always made sure to get the sensitive and non-scented wipes. When I received WaterWipes for review, I immediately switched to using them with my little one when they came through the door.

baby_wipes_slide2

Within two days, Ryleigh no longer had irritated skin. I was shocked and relieved all at once. How could I have not thought that the wipes could have been the cause? When you think of wipes, I think most of you are like me. You just assume that a wipe is a wipe. Their only job is to clean the skin, right? But WaterWipes takes more in to account when they make their natural baby wipes. They are a certified allergy friendly product. These wipes are also made with 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract. There is nothing extra in there that could even possibly make the skin irritated in any way. These wipes are acclaimed to help avoid diaper rash. They are extra soft and have no grease to them whatsoever. You get 60 wipes per pack, and since I found myself only using one per diaper change, that meant 60 diaper changes.

Even though the wipes are not super thick, they can clean up even the most disastrous of messes that your little one can produce in their diaper. I even switched my two year old to them even though she was not having any issues with irritation. I was able to clean her poo messes with just ONE wipe. This to me was amazing because it normally takes me two of the bargain brand that I had been using.

WaterWipes photos

On the packaging, WaterWipes lists all of their awards that they have received, and in this mom’s eyes, they deserve every single one of them. The wipes are suitable for newborns or any child that has sensitive skin. They are so absorbent and they leave nothing behind. It doesn’t take extra wiping to get anything off of the skin even when I change both of my children in the morning. I felt like I was giving them a superior clean and not having to wipe extra hard. This alone also helped with not having to irritate my oldest one’s skin. I normally have to wipe several times in the same area to get her skin clean. With them also being free from preservatives, I knew that I was using the most pure product on my child’s skin. Makes you really think about what is in baby wipes.

I had no idea that the recommended softness for wipes on a baby’s skin was warm water and cotton balls. This is exactly the consistency that WaterWipes provides. I also loved the packaging because when it states that the package is resealable they mean it. I was able to peel back the seal, get a wipe and reclose the seal. I made sure to read the packaging since I was unfamiliar with WaterWipes, and it does state not to transfer the wipes to another container. I would imagine this is to keep them as pure as they come to you in the packaging that they are already in.

If you would like to know where to get WaterWipes to use for yourself with your little one, they do have a store locator. I was surprised to see that the location near me was Walgreens. How convenient since I have one right down the street from me? WaterWipes has saved me lots of time and stress. My babies are also a lot happier because their bums feel incredible. A happy baby makes for a happy mama. Make sure to snag some of these amazingly pure wipes for your little ones.

About WaterWaters:

Baby wipes contain a huge amount of ingredients of which a lot of them are harsh chemicals. Baby’s skin is 5 to 7 times thinner than an adult skin. If you consider you may change baby up to 10 times a day, that’s 70 diaper changes a week. This is a lot of chemicals to apply on baby’s skin. Especially from birth. An adult would not do it on their own skin so why would you on a baby’s skin.

Some of the main baby wipes brands, eco-friendly, organic or so called ‘natural’ baby wipes brand you may have at home or your local Target store still contain a lot of chemicals. Harsh chemicals.
WaterWipes are the only baby wipes containing no chemicals but only two ingredients: purified water @ 99.9% and Grapefruit seed extract @ 0.1% . That’s it! Nothing else!

WaterWipes can be used by anyone who have a sensitive skin, from newborn babies to toddler, children and adults. WaterWipes is the only baby wipe to be ever approved by the independent Allergy UK which means that anyone with a skin condition like eczema, psioriasis, dermatitis, ect can use WaterWipes without any harm , rash, sting or tight effect. It is just pure water.

One winner will receive a case of WaterWipes.

Giveaway ends November 16th at 11:59pm, open to US residents, ages 18+. Only one entrant per household, per address. Winner is subject to eligibility verification. Enter using the giveaway form below. Good luck!
