Grocery Shopping With Babies

I don't know about you, but I try to avoid going to the grocery store with the kids at all costs. Honestly, I try to avoid all stores, no matter what I need, but sometimes it's unavoidable. 

So I've put together a list of tips and tricks to use when you have to venture out with the babies.

1. Make sure you choose a time where the kids the happiest. After nap is our best time. Babies are rested and ready to go!
2. Wear comfortable shoes. When I get inside those doors it's on. I have about 30 minutes before all hell breaks loose and I have things to get done! So make sure you are comfortable.

3. Bring snacks and forms of distraction. Raegan likes to grab a few yogurt pouches and down them while we do our shopping. Have at it girlfriend. If all else fails, I'll whip out Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. It always does the trick.
4. Use a Binxy Baby. Before you even fill up the cart with grocery items, you're taking up a ton of room with the babies. Either put your toddler in the front seat or get one of those big carts. Raegan loves those! They even fit the bigger carts like you find at Costco or Sam's as long as you put it at the front of the cart.

Then the Binxy Baby goes over the cart and voila! All your groceries can fit under the baby. What I love about the Binxy Baby is you can lay baby in it (up to 6 months or when baby is sitting up on their own) or you can put the carseat in it too. It holds up to 50 pounds. Just in case baby fell asleep on the way to the grocery store.


5. Give yourself grace. Meltdowns happen and if they do, power walk through the store to get the essentials, leave the rest for later, and head to the toy aisle. More often than not sometimes the toddler just needs to get out and get some energy out.

In the end, you braved the grocery store and that is a mama win in my book any day.

Thank you Binxy Baby for sponsoring this post.

  1. Snacks..genius idea!! I hadn't thought of it til you mentioned it and now that he can actually eat food food I will do that for sure!! But lets be honest either the hubby goes or we all go together. I think I have only been by myself twice since Bowen was born and only once just the baby and I.

  4. Ladies' internet shopping is predominant these days, and looking for garments is one of the top exercises for ladies on the web. While garments are typically purchased at a genuine store since you can attempt them on to check whether they fit you well or on the off chance that they look great on you, shopping on the web likewise has extraordinary advantages that at times are path superior to the regale of shopping in a genuine store.Maillot de foot pas cher
