The cold weather is here, I know you've heard me say it before. In fact, we've been stuck at home, iced in (yes, ice, not snow...YUCK) here in McKinney, Texas for days!
So, I figured I'd round up some of my favorite products to have at arms reach when Jack Frost starts a knockin'.
You said it, anti-bacterial lip balm. With all the cooties running around during the holidays, wouldn't you like an extra barrier between you and those pesky germs?
McKinney Mommas' Notes: I totally love this stuff! With shea butter and jojoba oil, this lip balm doesn't dry out your lips like some chapsticks can. I'm totally into the sphere it comes in, it doesn't get lost in my diaper bag or purse.
Available at: Target, Rite Aid, Drugstore.com and Evolutionofsmooth.com
McKinney Mommas' Notes: Why is this book better than a good ol' web search of your kid's symptoms? Well, you never know who's advice you're taking on the web, often it's not professionals and they might just steer you in the wrong direction. This book is written by a dozen of the top pediatricians at the Hospital for Sick Children (a.k.a. SickKids), which is known widely as one of the best children’s hospitals in the world!

If you're planning a trip to grandma and grandpa's for the holidays, or your car is snowed in and you have to call a taxi, the BubbleBum Inflatable Car Seat is the perfect, portable booster seat for your little one's hiney. This little booster passes all US Safety Standards, and has clips to ensure the safety belt is worn low and safely across your little guy or gal's lap.
McKinney Mommas' Notes: This booster seat can likely fit in your purse, and inflates fast enough that you won't even get light-headed! No need to lug the whole car seat or heavy booster with you through the airport, just deflate and fold this little guy up in your carry on. Plus, I use it at home as a booster seat at my dining room table when we're not on the go!
