Traveling over the holidays can be a struggle when you have tiny humans. Kids seem to add so many new layers to traveling…more than I even knew was possible. I am an avid traveler and have been supporting families with small children for nearly a decade. Through this, I have learned many tricks to making life simpler and smoother for parents. One of my favorite “life hacks” to share with parents of little ones is how to travel light. 

There’s no doubt that traveling with kids with inevitably create the need to travel with more stuff, but it doesn’t have to be a painful as many of us would image. I have put together a packing list for new parents that will help make traveling with kids much less of a headache! This podcast lays out tricks to make traveling with young children easier! Here is a list of clothing to pack for your baby, sleep necessities and helpful hints to minimize the “stuff” you have to bring along! 

For tips on what to pack for clothing, baby gear, sleep, baby carriers, and more check out the HeHe's full article here!

Bonus Tips:

  • Pack only a few diapers and wipes. When you get to your destination, you can purchase all the wipes and diapers you need. You’ll thank me later. 
  • Try to be as consistent as possible with your child’s sleep/bedtime routine. This will help your child feel safe and ease the anxiety that comes along with traveling by providing them with a predictable ending to their vacation days. Maintaining their sleep routines while on vacation will help your child get better, more restful sleep while away, too. 
  • Try changing over the contents of your diaper bag to a backpack! Backpacks are spacier and can be worn. There are precious backpack diaper bags! I love bags with stroller straps and a changing pad; especially made with Vegan Leather! Make sure your bag has enough storage space for a small electric breast-pump if you are using one.

What I Learned From the Woman Who Threatened to Punch All Breastfeeding Moms and Babies

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

(HeHe's article is published for Family Education HERE in its entirety.)

Earlier this week, Carly Clark, a mother, posted a very violent and aggressive attack on breastfeeding mothers everywhere. In her post, she threatens to punch breastfeeding mothers and their babies if she sees anymore.
 “I’m not sorry – the next female that tries to whip her boob out to breastfeed in front of my kids will get a black eye, move that baby [because] I’ll punch it too #zerocare #why #inpublicletsjustshowkidsboobs #notmine.” 

As soon as I read it, my heart sank... yours did, too, didn’t it? It’s no wonder it’s going viral. Her reaction tells me that we have a bunch of adults who have zero emotional intelligence. It lets me know that as a society we struggle to understand that everyone gets to make their own choices and you don’t get a say in that. I encourage this mom to look deep inside herself, identify why she is feeling unworthy and unhappy with herself, and then deal with her own problems. She needs to work through those sticky emotions that came up.

One upset woman responded, “What in the actual hell??! How do people – especially a woman – still have this kind of mentality???! How ridiculous!! We have been feeding our babies the way our bodies intended since the dawn of time.”

Here is where my heart jumped in excitement because people are standing up to an clear exhibit of an unsafe mentality, but then I immediately took a big breath of “okay, we’ve got a lot of work to do.” I love to see people standing up for what they believe in, but we’ve gone so far from the idea of love and understanding that it’s painful. We have to start with love and trying to understand when we approach others.
