If you are like most families, you are juggling the schedules of 2 or more children. Sometimes you have to just get in the car and go. That doesn't leave much time for toddler snack time. If you have to give your little one a snack on the run, you can simply place it in this Nuby 3-D Snack Keeper. The teeth are a whimsical trap to keep food in, but are gentle enough for soft fingers. It's perfect for road trips or waiting on the sidelines of sibling sporting events. Best of all, it might even cut down on petrified snacks under the car seat. Well, you can at least hope.

Traveling with little ones can be tough. There is no room for error. Forget one necessity and your baby's cry will haunt you for years. The last thing you need is a thermos of food leaking all over your well packed provisions. Now you have no food and your diapers and back up clothes are ruined. All those good intentions and preplanning are out the window (with your sanity.) This Leak Proof Stainless Steel Food Jar food jar will help to keep everything right where it needs to be. The double wall vacuum design keeps contents cold and fresh for seven hours; warm for five hours. Thanks to the kid proof design the stainless steel interior is unbreakable. It also inhibits bacteria growth and the wide opening allows for easy cleaning. This is one thermos you really don't want to leave behind.

You know that awful feeling you get when you open a backpack and there's no lunch box in there? Ugh. It can be tough to find the right lunch box off season. It seems stores only stock them two times a year: Back to School and Back to Camp. That's when the internet really comes in handy. This Dr. Seuss Lunch Box is fun and super functional. It has an interior mesh pocket and insulated moveable dividers. Best of all the handle has removable velcro so you can attach it to the handle of any backpack. There will be no way this lunch bag will get lost!!

I love the idea of a space saver high chair. When you have a newborn, your house is already packed with necessities. If you can avoid taking up any more space, do it! This Space Saver High Chair has three height adjustments. The tray will stay level with every adjustment. New features include the removal of the arm rests so you can pull baby closer to the table. You will never miss having a big oversized chair to drag around the kitchen or squeeze in at the table.

When it comes to feeding your baby, you want to make sure you providing him or her with the freshest food available. That's why so many parents are making their own food. After all, what is baby food in a jar? It's just pureed fruits and vegetables. The Freshfoods Mash & Serve Bowl bowl simplifies the whole process. Fruits and vegetables are delicious on their own or with breast milk or formula. After a meal, you can just throw it in the dishwasher in time for the next meal.

If you have tried to wash a bottle without one of these, you know how hard it can be. Life with a newborn can be chaotic enough. Use the right tools to make your life easier. This OXO Tot Bottle Brush has a flexible neck for easy reach inside bottles. The brush head has two types of bristles for gentle cleaning and serious scrubbing. The best part might just be the stand that is included. You don't want to clean you baby's bottles with a brush that's been laying around the kitchen sink.
