How to Make Sure Your Baby is the Perfect Plus One at Any Wedding
02 Oct 2018 •2 min read
Bracing yourself for baby's first big day? If you're feeling a little panicked about your pint-sized plus-one, put those worries to rest. We've got eight tips that'll get you and your little one through the "I dos" (and the rest of the wedding weekend, too).
1. Be a bag lady.
From loads of diapers to your arsenal of pacifiers, you're going to want to have the essentials in tow at every wedding event. Carry your survival kit around in style with a sleek and practical tote from 7AM Enfant's Heather Grey Collection. Oh, and don't forget the Babyganics wipes! These gentle, fragrance-free, versatile wipes are perfect for diaper changes, sticky fingers, and messy faces.
2. Overcome travel obstacles.
Whether you're road tripping it to the celebration or catching a flight, you're going to need to make it easy to nurse on-the-go. Specially designed nursing tops like Boob's Simone Long Sleeve Top and Striped Jumper will make feedings fast and simple while you travel. Meanwhile, make sure to pack bras and tanks that'll make feeds possible on the wedding day, even if you're stuck in the back of party bus. Try the Fast Food Nursing Singlet and the Fast Food Nursing Bra, which are comfy and flattering.
3. Make a blanket statement.
Is there anything a good baby blanket can't do? Throw one over the stroller as a sunshield during an outdoor ceremony, keep your little one cozy at a cool evening reception, conveniently cover up while nursing, and when the wedding comes to an end, swaddle your sweet kiddo for a good night's sleep. Made of 100% Lenzing Modal, a sustainable, US-made fabric, sourced from the pulp of beechwood trees, Solly Swaddles are luxuriously soft and they come in the cutest colors and patterns.
4. Lighten your load.
Don't let a big heavy stroller hold you back! A lightweight option like the UPPAbaby G-LUXE will make bringing baby to the wedding festivities a cinch. It folds up easily, has a convenient carry strap, and stands on its own for simple storage. Its adjustable footrest and reclining seat increase the chances that someone might catch a little nap, too...
5. Keep an eye out.
Planning to party past your little one's bedtime? If baby's heading home early with your spouse or the sitter, you can still keep an eye on your sleeping beauty no matter where you are. Get the WiFi enabled ComfortCam monitor then download the app on your iPhone or Android for remote viewing. Want to say goodnight? Two-way audio lets you speak to your sweetie!
6. Look fierce while you feed.
Make nursing super easy while looking like a total stunner at every big event. The Celia jumpsuit by Loyal Hana is formal enough for a black tie wedding, while the Marni is a lovely option for a laid back affair or brunch the next day. You'd never know it, but both styles have hidden zippers that make feeding a hungry baby a breeze!
7. Get pumped (literally).
Planning to pump? The Medela Freestyle® Solution Set is about to become your BFF. It comes in a travel-friendly sleek black microfiber tote bag, which holds all the essentials, and the breastpump features Medela's patented 2-Phase Expression™ technology, producing more milk in less time. Now you and your date can spend more time on the dance floor!
8. Opt for versatile options.
