We're getting out and about and on-the-go with baby again, and it feels good.
Things seem right with the world when we have days like this.
Lazy days spent under trees, wiggling our toes in the dirt, watching the big boys slide and jump and swing.
My sister comes to town and we load up the kids, drive through In N Out and head to a park.
I often babywear, but sometimes I just want to stretch out and bask in the sun with baby plopped beside me. I use travel cribs for big outings when I need somewhere for Minion to sleep. But if I'm on-the-go with baby and want to give him the chance to wiggle around a bit more, I grab the Boppy® Newborn Lounger. We've been working with the lately and I am obsessed with their soft, easy-to-bring-along little cushion for my baby.
I love that his neck is supported, so he's not doing that awkward helpless-staring-up-at-the-ceiling thing that babies often do when you lay them flat on the floor or on a blanket. I don't really like laying stiff on my back, so I assume they don't either!
The fabric is wipeable, so I can take it along on our adventures without stressing over how I'll clean it.
And it gets mega bonus points for being super-light and having a carrying handle, so I can easily hang it from the stroller cup holder to give myself another free hand. It's intended for babies up to five months old and 16 pounds or smaller. At almost four months, Minion is pushing that limit already. He is by FAR the chunkiest baby I have ever seen in-person, probably because of his around-the-clock nursing sessions that have happened every two hours since birth.
All the more reason for me to have an easy place to plop him…since I'm inevitably going to be picking him up again any moment!
