For those of you who prefer to follow Facebook and Instagram for updates about your favorite businesses (of which we hope to become one), we are now actively on both. We have contests, updates on hot new items that come into the store (many of which don’t stick around long enough to get up on our website) and some posts are just for fun. So if you want to check us out you can follow us on Instagram @mommystradingpost and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mommystrading
Also, If you have any great photos that you’ve snapped of gear or outfits you’ve purchase at the shop, we love to see them. You can share them with us on Instagram or tag them with #mommystradingpost or share them on our Facebook page.
Here’s a pic of my little man in an outfit we got at the shop right before he completely soaked himself in this doggy water dish😂
Traveling with a baby can definitely be intimidating. I’ve been traveling with my little guy since he was about 3 months old and every time we travel there are new challenges. Flying used to be easy because he would nurse, cuddle or sleep in his carrier the whole time. The most recent flight was the most difficult, since he learned to walk in the airport and obviously didn’t want to sit still when it was time to get on the plane. A plethora of snacks, books, toys and some phone games (don’t judge me:) sometimes you gotta go with what works) got us through. Car trips can also be a challenge, especially long ones, but I find them easier to cope with since the space is more private and you have more control and can stop and take a break as needed. Then there is the issue of how to feed them, where to have them sleep and how to deal with diaper changes or potty training once you reach your destination.
I have come across a few items in the shop in the last few weeks that I think could definitely come in handy depending on what kind of trip you’re taking and how old your little one is. I haven’t tried many of them so I’d love to hear any thoughts or comments or recommendations. Check them out below!
Cares Kids Fly Safe Air Travel Harness
Baby B’Air Toddler Travel Harness
Bambinoz Portachair (turns any chair into a highchair)
Travel Potty Seat with Liner Bags (can be used on its own over an adult toilet seat)
Portable Changing Station and Disposable Changing Table Covers
Hey all, just wanted to draw your attention to the fact that we have changed our weekend hours to 12pm-5pm. It seemed as though most folks were enjoying relaxed weekend mornings with the fam before heading in so we are doing our best to be open when it works best for you! So enjoy some brunch and stop by in the afternoon for some maternity clothes, strollers, toys or whatever it is you may need.
