Car Seat Covers and Nap-time On the Go

Scheduling and routines are big around our house. When my first was a baby we were home every day right in time for naps and we stayed home until they were finished. I made it a point to do this so she would be well rested and happy during her awake hours. But then along came Lola and things started looking a little different. By that point Joie was down to one nap a day and we utilized our mornings by accomplishing one consistent goal: wear Joie out so nap time would be successful. Our mornings became our adventure time, we went to play dates, parks and museums. So when Lola was born I wanted to get her on a schedule too, and that was still important to me, but it simply wasn’t realistic to stop doing all those things just because it was her time to nap. Thats when I learned the beauty of car seat covers and nap-time on the go!

Let me just start by saying you won’t find any cuter carseat covers than by the amazing Covered Goods but they are so much more than just that. They are a  complete multi use product which can be used as a carseat cover, nursing cover or scarf AND a shopping cart cover. Seriously, talk about a versatile design! I use my Covered Goods for all of the above but it became a godsend when it came to napping on the go when my second daughter, Lola, was born. I don’t know if it is a second child thing, or a baby thing, or a Lola thing BUT this girl had complete FOMO (fear of missing out). The second we would leave the car, wether she was sound asleep or not, she would become totally alert and obsessed with her surroundings. Napping in public was just not happening. I tried throwing a blanket over her carseat but I was always peeking in to check on her. Being in Florida the blanket wouldn’t last long anyways on those muggy mornings. The great thing about the Covered Goods cover is that it is open in the front so I can peek in on her all I want with ease AND the air continuously flows through to her.  I simply slip the cover over her carseat and she no longer gets distracted by all the moving parts surrounding her. I would say 90 % of Lola’s  morning naps are done outside of the house and they won’t happen without our Covered Goods carseat cover to help decrease the distractions.

I was given these two great covers and I am totally in love with them both! I have the Navy & Ivory Stripe and the Dot design. They get switched out and used everyday around here. Head over to Covered Goods now so you can check out ALL of their color options/patterns. You will be sure to fall in love with them!

  • The girls haven’t put down their “Cubbles the Bear” Cozy Dozys toy since they arrived and I have to say, I think they’re pretty darn cute too! #ad These are the newest addition to the @moose_toys #littlelive collection and they’re available now at Target! These bears are so lifelike and have the softest plush fur that make them perfect for all the cuddles. Even better, they come to life as you play with them so my girls have really gotten attached to them ever since! #CozyDozys

  • Today was a BIG day for our Lo 🎉 She graduated Peanut Oral Immunotherapy and is officially in maintenance 🥜😱 Her maintenance requires her eating 3 peanuts a day (her “dose”) and observing a quiet period (which we do first thing in the morning to get it over with!) then we will have her numbers retested in 6 months to see where they’re at. We can go on to challenge her tolerance from there! We may take her up to a maintenance dose of 8 peanuts as well depending on her numbers at that point which could clear her for free eating. Stay tuned! Either way as of now she is officially safe from accidental exposure or ingestion which is huge! This journey has been incredible. If any of you were around last summer when we ended up in the ER with her for a full blown anaphylactic reaction to a cross contaminated cupcake then you know how incredible her reaching this milestone is! She’s a tough one. This hasn’t been easy and it took a lot of patience and perseverance from her, which is a lot to ask of a 4 year old. When the Doctor gave her the certificate of completion her face lit up with joy! I loved seeing that 😊. Next up, Joie! She has 2 more “up-dose” appointments until she graduates from egg and peanut OIT! Wish us luck!! This mama will be happy to be done with the 3hr round trip drives each week to these appointments as well 👏🏼 #oitworks #oit #peanutallergy
  • First work, now play 🏰 Although play is still a lot of work 😅 Swipe to see what Disney with 4 little’s looks like! We did it hard today but the kids had the best time all in all (Bradley was not a fan of the fireworks which had to blast off right before we took this picture- ha!) Gosh I love this crew!✨ #sponsored #disneysmc #nowmorethanever
  • So about yesterday! It was an absolute dream to get to attend the Disney Social Media Celebration “On The Road” at @waltdisneyworld ✨ I got to share a room with SO many talented creatives. Some I have “known” for years on Instagram but have never actually met until then. It has always been a dream of mine to work with Disney and getting to partner with them on a continuous basis like this never stops amazing me! A dream come true 🏰 So never stop wishing upon a star ladies/gents because hard work and determination DO pay off! ALSO- any Star Wars fans here? We got to be some of the first to tour the Galaxy Edge in Orlando and let’s just say it was pretty out of this world spectacular 🌌 #punintended // #disneysmc #nowmorethanever #sponsored
