Well, I can't tell you how to not carry a diaper bag at all, without saying...stop carrying a diaper bag! :-) What I can share with you on this Friday is a way for YOU (Mom or Dad of a toddler around age 2) not to have to haul around the bag. As you know, once the baby can walk, this also tends to be a time you don't need to haul so much stuff around anymore. On the flip side, you still need to carry a changing of clothes, snack, extra pull-up or diaper, wipes, etc...whatever it is you still like to be safe by having with you at the toddler stage! Well, I have good news for those who haven't figured this out already! I want to give credit to my sitter for this one! Thanks!
Okay,what is it already? Well, simple...get your toddler a small BACKPACK! They get to act like a "big kid" or "school kid" by carrying it. They WANT to carry it and how awesome to have his/her "stuff" in it! Moms, you can finally have your handbag BACK...full sized, not the downsized one! :-) Dads, you can still be your cool self with nothing over your shoulder!
I just had to share this because I really enjoyed shopping the other day and knew my son was content and excited to be a "big kid" carrying his Bob the Builder Backpack! He also has Spider man for the sitter's house!
My son is 2 1/2 but I am certain, had I known this, he would have gladly carried a backpack when he was even a few months younger than 2!
Happy Friday Everyone!
