If I’m not at work, I’m usually out with Lil’ J trying to find something fun to do. Monday we’re going on a bike ride downtown, and Tuesday we may go swimming, or to a yoga class together. We are two girls always on the go.
I’ve learned how to pack her diaper bag quickly but that doesn’t mean I don’t usually forget something. I try to keep an extra pair of clothes, of course diapers, and some snacks on hand to keep her happy and entertained while we’re out.
Watch the video below to see what we take with us on the go (and to see Lil’ J’s walking debut).
I love Earth’s Best Yogurt Fruit Smoothies. They are tasty, don’t need to be refrigerated, and easy to give to Lil’ J when we’re out and about. She loves them too, and if you’re one of those moms who goes nuts over organic stuff, you’ll be happy to know they’re stamped organic by the USDA. I buy these things close to by the case full and give them to her as a breakfast snack on her way to school.
I also now have the Johnson’s Take Along Pack in her diaper bag for emergencies in case I’m out and forgot to pack baby lotion, shampoo, powder, or diaper cream. Or in case a friend is in a bind and needs one of those things. It’s all of those things in a travel size pack for under $3.
Growing up my family always joked that we were going to my dad’s “favorite store” when wed head out to Walmart. He’s a bargain shopper, and I’ve turned out to be the same way. I love that store. Don’t hate.
Right now online Walmart.com is having their Baby Days sale and it continues until September 16th. So you can take advantage of even lower prices than they already offer, and get deals on things for your little ones. I took advantage and got Lil’ J a new car seat. She has an infant seat and a kid seat but she needed a convertible for in-between so she can still face backwards. After reading this years car seat ratings from Consumer Reports I decided to get the Graco Comfort Sport seat. I’m not going to go into my confusion over paying $300 for seats that are rated the same or lower, but I will say that I’m stoked that I got a top rated car seat that has exactly what I was looking for for only $80. More expensive doesn’t always mean better.
I got all but the pillow pet sent to my local store where I could pick it up without any shipping cost.
The estimated delivery date was something like two weeks away but I got them items just three days after placing my order! The pillow pet also arrived the same day to my house.
From now until September 16th you can participate in Walmart’s Baby Days sales online. Also, many of the baby items (96 to be exact) qualify for free photo prints too (I personally love uploading pics to their website and picking them up at the store while I’m shopping. It’s a genius idea).
I hope you enjoyed Lil’ J’s and my video as much as we enjoyed making it. Poor thing, I think she’s going to be a talker like her mama. Future news anchor maybe? We’ll see.
