On-the-Go Must Haves

Whether you are going on a trip or just out for the day, these items are sure to make your trip a little less stressful!

If you are a parent then you probably have at least 27 sippy cups piled in your cabinets. The hunt for a good sippy cup was so difficult, especially in those beginning stages, when it is still a learning process for them. Heavens doors opened when I finally tried a suggestion from my sister. This 360 No-Spill Cup was truly a gift from above. There are just 3 parts so cleaning is easy! No small places for mold to grow either! And it really is spill-proof! This was one cup I could give my daughter in her car seat and not have to worry about stopping and finding a soggy baby.
As my daughter got older, she began wanting EVERYTHING that her father and I had. Hence, the No-Spill Insulated Water Bottle. This water bottle is a little more advanced than the 360 cup. Since it is spill-proof, you have to gently bite the top for anything to come out. This makes it a little more advanced and the reason why I also still listed the 360 cup. This bottle comes in many different designs and is the perfect size for my little ones hands. Another cup that won't hide any mold either!
The Squeasy Snacker is one of the neatest inventions. I was on the hunt for something that I could give my daughter liquefied foods in and NOT have to worry about it spilling all over. I've seen the other kinds of reusable pouches (the ones that spill out the top the second you touch them). I was not about to purchase those for my 1.5 year old, I already knew the outcome of that. The Squeasy Snacker allows my daughter to eat applesauce or yogurt WITHOUT it spilling all over. It has a stopper on the inside which means the only way that food is coming out is by sucking. The stopper can be removed, turning it into a drink pouch for older children. It is the absolute easiest thing to clean too. It has just 3 totally detachable parts and the container itself can be turned inside out. I absolutely love everything about this product. And it comes in 3 adorable colors! Also there are 2 sizes currently available. We purchased the 6 oz.
The Snack Catcher is another product we use on a daily basis, since my daughter is quite the snacker. This was one thing I purchased that I fortunately didn't have to find by trial and error. I've seen other snack cups since purchasing and am so thankful I found these first. The top part is not a hard plastic, like I've seen on others. It is easy for my daughter to put her hand in but still keeps all the mess inside!
Water Wipes are something I keep everywhere: in the car, in my purse, in the kitchen, in the bathroom. These wipes are so amazing. As shown in the picture, the wipes soak in 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract. I was thrilled when I found these because I wanted a wipe that I could keep in my purse that was dual purpose. I wanted something that I could use for changing diapers but that was also safe to use on my daughters hands and face. I was worried about how they would hold up when changing a #2 diaper and I am happy to say that they work great! I have now completely replaced our regular wipes for these.
One of the most difficult things with car rides is keeping the little ones happy and entertained. Besides books, a Magnetic Drawing Board is one thing we grab when we're running out the door. It keeps my daughter occupied for a good amount of time.

The next item that is an absolute MUST HAVE is actually a group of items. Wet bags are one of the greatest inventions, and not just for parents. Logan + Lenora bags are the most versatile because they come in many different sizes (and adorable prints).***Use this link to receive 15% off your entire purchase at Logan+Lenora! 
The Wet + Dry Diaper Clutch is so cute! The inside of it has a liner to hold anything that would potentially get other things wet. The outer pouch is for dry items. I love this for pretty much anything. I can put dry snacks in the front and wet snacks in the main pouch.
We have a few of the Petit Pouches because I mainly use these for wet snacks since it is fully lined. I love that I don't have to use plastic bags anymore! I can just throw some grapes, or oranges in one of these and wash it when I get home.
We also have the Classic Wet Bag which is another item I don't know how I lived without. I currently use this bag to throw pretty much everything in. Petit pouches, drinks, other snacks, they all fit! I love that I don't have to worry about the stuff leaking through anything. It is the perfect size when you are just going out for the day.
I cannot wait to use my Daytripper Wet + Dry Tote. I know that the first time I use this will be at the beach. It is a large enough bag to fit all of our swimsuits, wet clothes, shoes, etc.
