Since, our exciting event last month (the birth of our second little girl), we've been talking about infant products that we're excited about here at McKinney Mommas.
Baby O's grandparents live in Idaho and California, and we're in Texas. Needless to say, traveling is in our future if we want Baby O. to see her relatives with any regularity. Naturally, my mind starts to wander to airline car seats, pack and plays, and travel strollers.
PeppyParents.com is a great website, started by a mom and dad team after a few not-so-perfect experiences in baby gear stores. I'm sure you've also experienced what they did, where employees didn't have through knowledge of the products they were selling and you were left guessing yourself.
Each year, PeppyParents test, evaluate and research tons of baby strollers and gear to find the best products for their customers. They also pride themselves on offering great customer service!
One product I found at PeppyParents that will be great for our upcoming travels is the Phil & Teds Nest - portable baby bed.
|Phil & Teds - Nest|
I wish I would have had this portable bed when I traveled with my oldest daughter, now 18 months. We always had to build a make-shift sleeping area when visiting relatives. The Nest by Phil & Teds is a perfect alternative to makeshift infant sleeping areas during travel and is made for newborns up to 9 months.
Some great features of this bed is that that it folds flat in seconds, and sets up in the same amount of time. For traveling, it comes with its own carry bag that you can stow in overhead luggage lockers on the airplane.
