Heading back to the snowy tundra of Chicago + I am already wishing we were back on the beautiful beaches of PV, Mexico. Bummer.
This was our first time traveling with a little one + to be completely honest, our little guy flew like a champ. I can't give all the credit to the fact that he's a pretty good baby, there was definitely some planning involved that helped make the trip close to seamless.
What was in Rush's suitcase:
Sophie The Giraffe, OXO Tot On-The-Go, Babyganics Travel size, Think Baby Sunscreen, Honest Company Teether, Honest Company Swim Diaper, Sun Angels, Sound Machine, Cheeky Chomper Bibs, Travel Lysol, Mono Beach Baby Tent, Stokke Travel Tub.

ErgoBaby 360 Carrier
When you pack up your entire closet to go to Mexico, you better make sure you have two free hands to cart around luggage. I absolutely love this carrier. It's comfortable, has several carrying options that are easy to transition into + can quickly be put on + taken off in seconds. It's lightweight + I used it to help keep Rush secure during takeoff + landing. It was also the perfect accessories for our mornings walks to get coffee when we needed a break from the stroller.
Summer Infant 3D Flip Stroller
This was a lifesaver. We LOVE our Bob stroller but there was concern with traveling with such a large stroller. We needed something a little more versatile. This was it. With a rear + front facing option, it was so easy to switch to keep our little guy out of the sun. On the airport travel side of things, it opened up + folded down in seconds, making things less stressful when going through customs + getting on / off the airplane.
I am no longer nursing but I am still exclusively pumping + bottle feeding. Pumping on an airplane in general wasn't something I was excited about but due to our travel times, it had to happen that way. Instead of sitting inside a gross airplane bathroom, I used my milk snob cover to give me the perfect about of privacy I needed.
Medela Battery Pack
We were pretty much on the go the entire vacation, that how it works - right? With pumping still in the picture, I needed a way to make it more seamless since we were not always at our place or near an outlet. Beaches don't come with outlets, folks. I purchased a Medela battery back off Amazon before we left, giving me the leisure to plug it in + pump where ever I pleased. Highly recommend this tiny little device.
Little Unicorn Weekender Diaper Bag
A stylish diaper bag + it fit everything I needed in it. I've been hoarded this bag for months, waiting to use it just for this vacation. It fit my pump, diapers, wipes, spare clothes - you name it - it was in there. For all you traveling mama's out there. This is your answer to easy travel.
