My husband and I love discovering new products that can meet our demand for convenience. So when the time came to purchase goods for Squishy, we researched extensively to find well-made, suitably priced gadgets to suit our alternative lifestyle… I’ve pared down our list to just a few awesome products that I can’t survive without.
Snap n’ Go Stroller Base
The Snap n’ Go is only about 10 pounds, which makes folding and storing much easier. Special thanks to fellow first-time mom and friend, @a_vegan_esq, who gave me the recommendation. Just a quick FYI – remember to research compatibility with your specific seat before purchasing. Snap n’ Go, $49.95.
Swoop is a multi-functional play mat… but it can double as a changing pad, diaper carrier, and storage unit. What I love about Swoop is the water-resistant composition which makes cleanup easy peasy. Not to mention, toddlers who love to roll around the floor can be one step closer to germ-free. Mom’s dream? Yes. SWOOP® Bag, $34.00.
PockIt IDAN Carseat
I wouldn’t put $500 and practical in the same sentence.. so when I found the lightweight GT PockIt IDAN Carseat, I was ecstatic. Not only is the car seat size adjustable, but the compact and sleek construction also makes portability hassle-free. Totally reasonably priced for a big ticket item. PockIt IDAN Carseat, $240.00.
Puj Foldable Infant Tub
In the early days, we bathed Squishy in a small basin; but eventually, we had to find him a real bathtub. The Puj Flyte Tub and the Puj Soft Infant Tub at our local Babies r’ Us seemed like an ideal solution. The Infant Tub is designed to make storage easier and bathing safer for infants. The flat surface folds into a chair and fits into a standard sink. The cushion prevents any head injuries for babies and clean-up is a breeze. Puj Baby Bathtub (Aqua), $49.99.
Stasher Ziploc Containers
My love for Ziploc bags travels back to elementary school when I used them to port my Polly Pocket dolls around; so imagine my joy when I saw the updated eco-friendly, reusable version of the beloved disposable bag. I mainly use the Stasher Containers to carry my baby wipes when the original packaging has torn. Stasher Silicone Food Bag, $11.99.
Moba Travel Bassinette
As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of the Dockatot – the Moba Travel Bassinette is a similar product, but the frame is made of a silicon material that is lightweight and hypoallergenic. I also love that it can dock into the stand to create a stand alone bassinette (something the Dockatot cannot do). Moba Travel Bassinette, $180.00.
Do you own any of the products listed here? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
