Best Products for Traveling (and Living) with Kids
If you are joining me from Better Connecticut, welcome and thanks for visiting!
I was thrilled to make my first appearance on Better Connecticut this morning to share some baby gear that makes our lives a lot easier. Me, on TV! As some kind of parenting expert! Scary but totally exciting. So many wise parents have come before me — and thankfully, some have the ingenuity, persistence and energy to find solutions to everyday parenting problems. I like gear and gadgets that make life easier, rather than just add clutter to the already cluttered-world of parenting, and these products all fit the bill. Check out the products below and please enter the product giveaway while you are here.
In the Friendly Skies
Ninety percent of all injuries occur during flight, mainly due to turbulence. The Baby B’Air is the only FAA-approved baby/toddler in-flight safety solution for lap-held children while traveling in an airplane. The soft 100% cotton vest fits over baby and connects to the seat belt of the adult, safely securing the child in the parent’s lap. $34.95, babybair.com

Keeping it Clean
Most babies go through a drooling stage, soaking adorable outfits and irritating necks and chins. The Banda Bib is a unique bandana shaped bib that fits closer and more comfortably to the chin than any other bib. They are supersoft and less cumbersome than other bibs making it easy for baby to wear all day. The stylish prints make them look more like a fashion accessory than a drool catcher.

Snacking on the Go
This one has quickly become a classic in many homes. The Snack Trap is a tip-resistant, handled toddler snack cup with a unique lid with slits that allows toddlers to see and retrieve food with ease themselves but automatically closes when the toddlers remove their hand. BPA-free plastic and now in stainless steel too.
No-Spill Bottle Caps
Replace the original bottle cap of any leading water and juice drink with the No-Spill Bottle Cap and the bottle is ready for no-spill drinking. Each pack of No-Spill Bottle Caps includes adapters for all the leading drink bottles. A small but very useful item for your diaper bag.

Flexi-Fit Toilet Trainer
Flexi-Fit is a fully size adjustable toilet training seat that can easily be attached and detached to and from any standard toilet seat. Unlike other potty seats that wiggle, the Flexi-Fit fits toilets snugly, ensuring children feel secure and comfortable.

The Sidekick is the world’s first and only full function diaper bag and baby carrier combo, perfect for running errands with a baby. The bag comes with a changing pad and insulated snack bag, but the carrier is really what sets this bag apart. No more juggling baby, along with your wallet, keys, phone and a paci. Everything tucks neatly in the bag, with baby comfortably seated on your hip (up to 35 pounds).
Thanks for checking out all these great products and for visiting Love Them Madly. I will be giving away a Toddler On-The-Go Package, including 1 Banda Bib, 2 Snack Traps, 2 No-Spill Water Bottle Caps and a Pourty Toilet Trainer (a $50 value).
