Baby’s First Easter

Could two weeks really already have passed since our trip north-east for E to meet relations and have a family Easter dinner?

Guess so!

Keeping the baby close! The only way we could make it through big family dinners! (even though my bro could barely keep from mocking me! I wear my baby for E and me and no one else!)

Family can fill your heart and bring such sweet memories to surface.

Lessons from traveling with baby:

  • We took more than we needed from clothes to gear
  • Babies can become stressed out, burned out, and overwhelmed same as adults
  • It’s best to just stay in the backseat with your baby on a long car trip, no matter how cramped you feel
  • You have to be a team, 100%
  • Breastfeeding, babywearing, and ECing provides consistency for baby away from home

Gear We actually needed and used:

  • Baby K’tan (Baby wrap)
  • Baby B’jorn smart potty
  • Baby’s favorite blanket
  • Cloth diapers (the paper diapers and wipes ended up giving baby bad diaper rash)
  • Babyganics Protective Ointment (for diaper rash)
  • Simple clothing

The little man did the best he could on such a journey. All in all, a successful Easter.
