LÍLLÉbaby CarryOn Air

My two year old is like most two year olds; she can be emotional, grumpy, tired, and destructive. All of these toddler qualities seem to make themselves known even more when we are out and about, and holding a big kid for an hour can be very tiring. So although a toddler carrier might not be necessary on a day-to-day basis, it is definitely nice to have on outings, hikes, or even shopping trips.

The LÍLLÉbaby CarryOn Air is AMAZING! It is super comfortable, and fits my 30 pound, 35.5 inch 2.5 year old perfectly. The breathable mesh is perfect for our hot Arizona weather, but it is still soft and supportive. It also features a lumbar support that helps distribute the weight on your back making it even more comfortable. I can hardly feel the 30 pound kid on me, so that's impressive.

The CarryOn can be used up to 50 pounds, so this will not be outgrown anytime soon, which makes a great carrier even more worth the investment. It has dual adjusting straps which makes adjusting on front or back super easy. And the waist belt has extended padding that helps evenly distribute weight around your hips. One of the coolest features are the large pockets that can hold quite a bit of the stuff that us moms have to pack around.

Although my baby girl isn't really a baby anymore, she still feels safe and secure snuggled up with her mom. Even the most extreme toddler tantrums can be tamed by love; and that is why I love the CarryOn, it keeps what matters most to me close to my heart.

NursEase Breastfeeding Shawl

If you are/will be breastfeeding, you NEED this (or make one, if money is an issue). Really, this simple little item will make all the difference in whether breastfeeding in public is easy and comfortable, or a nightmare.

Unlike most covers, this one covers all the way around, so you don't have to worry about your back or sides showing. If you are a modest person, you will love this, because it literally shows nothing!

The elastic around the top holds it up well, but it's easy to peek in if you need to. Even with a wiggly baby its nearly impossible for them to expose you.

So reduce some of the stress of going out with your baby, and get one. Trust me, your life will be a million times easier not having to wrestle a baby and a blanket, and all of the other things us moms have going on :)

Tip: for even more coverage, wear an undershirt that you can just pull down in the front, and then when you pull your shirt up you're still covered :)
