When you are a Mom to a baby or young toddler, even something as simple as a trip to the grocery store becomes a big production. All of us Moms have been there: you have to pack what can seem like half the nursery into a large, bulky diaper bag, and then you have to lug your baby and the huge diaper bag into the car, then back out of the car and into the grocery store, back into the car again, and then back out again. What a nightmare. And having to carry that diaper bag around is so inconvenient, it is so heavy and bulky and has your shoulder aching before long. Not to mention how hard it is to actually find something in it when you need it! You spend what seems like forever digging around in there trying to find a pacifier all the while trying to soothe a screaming baby. It can be a pretty harrying experience. But it doesn’t have to be like that, not anymore. I have stumbled across an amazing solution: a travel jacket! These jackets have everything moms need to make a simple trip to the grocery store be just that: simple. While technically made for people traveling as tourists, these jackets’ unique design and features also make them perfect for hectic mothers on the go. Here are just a few reasons why these jackets are great.
- Elastic bottle holders. That’s right, I said bottle holders. Al of the big pockets inside the jacket comes with elastic straps perfect for securing a water or soda bottle but which are also perfect for securing, you guessed it, a baby bottle of sippy cup! No more having to stop and dig through a diaper bag looking for the bottle. With the travel jacket you can simply reach inside your jacket, pull out the bottle, pop it is baby’s mouth, and continue with your shopping.
- Hidden, wallet sized pockets. Yep, with a travel jacket not only do you not need to carry a diaper bag, you don’t have to carry your purse either! Your wallet can fit in a hidden pocket made for carrying wallets. With a purse sitting in the buggy, you have to constantly worry about stepping away to look at something while at the same time keeping an eye on your purse. With a travel jacket you can be hands free and not have to worry about your valuables.
- A pocket large enough to carry a tablet or book. When you go to that playdate at the park, you can easily bring your tablet or a book along for reading while your child is happily playing. Without having to carry a bag! It will fit comfortably inside your travel jacket.
