On Saturday, we left the house at 9 A.M. and returned around 5:30 P.M., having been to a musical performance, lunch, and then to my in-laws for the rest of the day. I had to pat myself on the back — I somehow had everything we had needed in my tote bag. Today, thought I’d share a bunch of recent finds mixed in with longtime lifesavers for adventures outside the house with littles. Let me give a specific shoutout to Gathre mats, which fold up into tiny squares but are super durable – great for changing mats, a spot to perch on grass/ground, a work space while painting, etc. We have a few different sizes and they’ve been in use since day one of motherhood. I also absolutely love this OXO travel wipes pouch — you refill with bulk wipes at home, and the case is super easy to find, durable (does not rip or anything), and the little ring at the top can hook right onto a stroller, bag, etc. Last but certainly not least, my BabyZen Yoyo was one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I was skeptical about buying such a pricey travel stroller given that we already had a pricey Bugaboo full feature stroller, but we have used this so much, especially in NYC and while traveling. Whatever stroller you have, though, these repositionable velcro bag hooks are NON-NEGOTIABLE. So great for carrying grocery bags, diaper bags, wet swimsuits, keys, etc!
