Traveling with toddlers should be considered an olympic sport. The sheer exhaustion of trying to keep up with a toddler in new and crowded locations is enough to make a Mom stay home for a child’s entire toddlerhood!
Toddlers have so many needs, and keeping up with those away from home can be difficult. OXO Tot makes 6 incredible products for toddlers that really help make Momma’s life easier when on-the-go with a toddler in tow.
My toddler and I tested out 6 great travel products from OXO Tot during our summer adventures.
This pouch is perfect for traveling. My favorite feature is the easy to open strap. I tend to carry a lot of stuff in my diaper bag, and putting my hands on a diaper, a pack of wipes, and diaper cream all at once is nearly impossible. Especially when my wiggly toddler is on those public bathroom fold out changing tables. Keeping one hand on him makes getting what I need from the diaper bag nearly impossible. But this pouch from OXO Tot changes that! I use the handy strap to keep the pouch attached to my stroller. No more digging in the diaper bag bottomless pit at changing time!
This stroller hook is also so handy to have while traveling with toddlers. Not only does it work well to hang a shopping bag or purse, but my 5-year-old also uses it to hang onto the stroller in crowded places.
This sippy cup will take a child from first sippy to drinking from a real cup, in just one product. Start with the soft silicone spout, then later graduate to the training lid so help your child get used to drinking from a grown up cup. As the baby of 6 kids, my toddler is ready to give up sippy cups to drink like his big siblings. I, on the other hand, do not want more messes to clean up! This lid is the perfect way to give the toddler some practice, with less mess for me!
One thing I’ve learned about traveling with toddlers, is always pack snacks. In fact, pack enough snacks for the trip, then double that amount! A hungry toddler is not a fun traveling companion! My son loves this snack cup. The handle makes it easy to hold, and the silicone opening keeps his snacks from spilling all over the stroller!
This set is so handy for cleaning the cracks and crevices of toddler sippy cups. It is also great for cleaning my older children’s straws and sports cups!
This travel potty is genius! My toddler is nearing potty training age, and I am so excited to have this potty on hand. Not only will it fit on public toilet seats to keep my son comfortable and clean, but it also turns into a travel potty. Any Mom who has been in the car, in the middle of no where, with a newly potty trained toddler understands how awful it is to hear, “Mommy… Gotta potty,” from the backseat! This potty solves that problem completely! Simply unfold the legs, add a disposable bag, and your toddler has a potty he can use anywhere!
What are your best tips for traveling with a toddler? I’d love to hear them!
