In honor of Spring (which will hopefully show it’s face sometime soon) and April being National Stress Awareness month, we thought we’d share the must-haves for being a parent on-the-go, and the products that’ll make breastfeeding while out and about a breeze! There are so many choices when it comes to products today, and it’s tough to make decisions when it comes to what is best for you! Well, don’t stress because we’ve got you covered. As healthcare professionals, the team behind littlebeam knows a thing or two, so read on for this year’s necessities!
Nursing on the Go
Did you know that breastfeeding can actually reduce stress? Nursing your child releases the hormone oxytocin, which promotes a feeling of relaxation. So: step one in being a stress-free mom on-the-go? Keep up the breastfeeding!
Our littlebeam nursing pillow was developed by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant with the busy family in mind. A truly portable nursing pillow, littlebeam can be used in a variety of positions depending on what works best for you and your little one, and comes in a variety of colors and patterns to match your style!

From Place to Place
For a family on-the-go, a travel system stroller is key. Go from car seat to the streets with zero stress! So your baby falls asleep in the car, are you going to wake them up to transfer to the stroller? Absolutely not. There are a ton of options on the market for travel systems, so depending on what you’re looking for it might be good to do some research, but we are loving this one from Baby Trend. Perfect for any terrain, this jogger will get any busy family where they needs to go!
Jewelry for You, Teethers for Them
Have you heard of this cheeky Australian brand? Nibbly Bits designs just keep getting better and better! From bracelets to pendants to beaded necklaces, there’s something for every outfit to keep your little one entertained everywhere you go! Made from food-grade silicone, Nibbly Bits are softer than other brands, and don’t get that sticky feeling that you’re used to. BONUS, to make your life a little bit easier, they can be thrown right in the dishwasher for easy cleaning!
Time to Turn into Mary Poppins
You’ve got your little one situated in their car seat, with the stroller packed up and ready to go. Teething jewelry around your neck (perfectly matching your outfit of course), extra diapers and all of the odds and ends that you may need are waiting to be packed. What do you put it all in? The look you’re going for is definitely not ‘disheveled mom carrying an obvious diaper bag’. We’ve got what you need! These two bags here and here are made to look fashionable and clean, yet are totally functional for the busy mom! With pockets and compartments galore, you can fit your baby’s needs and everything you’ll want throughout the day in the same bag. Save yourself the stress of carrying (and keeping track of, #parentbrain) a diaper bag plus a purse - you’ve got it all in one spot!
