Road Trip

Roadtrip We took our first big outing today, about an hour and fifteen minutes away. I was a pinch nervous that it was going to backfire but our son had just taken a good nap, he was just fed and had a clean diaper. We decided to head out. On the way there, our son chewed his fingers, made goofy noises, and sucked on his pacifier. He ended up falling asleep for a little bit, but was completely content so far. On our return trip, we had to stop off of the highway to diaper change and feed him. Still, no fussing. I can safely say that I have never fed a child in the backseat of the car, but it went well. In our diaper bag, we carry the powder formula packets and bottled water to make it easy to mix a bottle quickly. Into the car seat he went and we headed home. I think that staying calm as a parent and going with the flow definitely helps a baby feel relaxed as well. Yes, I’m sure if we were in the car much longer, he would have began to fuss, but we are lucky parents to have such a great and easy going boy. Here are the items that we keep in our diaper bag in case you need to pack one or are missing some items. • Diapers • A couple changes of clothing (hat, socks, onesie, sleeper, pants, jacket/sweatshirt) • Burp cloths • Changing pad • Butt paste • Wipes • Bibs • Blanket • Toys (teethers or rattles etc.) • Hand sanitizer • Tissues (those are for me) • Spare bottle • Formula • Bottled water • Pad & pen • Wash cloth (to cover his Johnson when diaper changing) • Bags for dirty diapers (we use scented ones that are probably meant for dogs but they come in a small roll and are in a little round container that we pull out when we need one. It hooks right to the diaper bag)

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety has been a tough one, for all of us. It comes and goes and does not usually last too long but it sure does stink. The way that I’ve learned to recognize the difference between pain
