Friday Favorite: Travel Edition

While preparing for our trip, it hit me that I would need a safe way to bathe the boys.  In the past, when we were on vacation with JD, we would just hold him in the shower or give him a little sponge bath, but now he has a mind of his own and doesn't like showers.  Hotel tubs gross me out a bit, and I don't know what kind of harsh cleaners they use in them.  I asked twitter, and heard about this ducky bath.

I was a little nervous about JD fitting in it comfortably, but some of the reviewers online said that they used it with older toddlers, so we decided to give it a try.

O was a little nervous at first.

But he warmed up to it :)

A squeaky clean JD
 
They loved it. JD especially loved that it quacked.  I liked that it could easily be deflated and packed for our next destination.  The only negative was that it was small (We had to refresh JD's water mid-bath to make sure he was really getting clean), but any bigger and it would have taken up more precious suitcase space.
Overall, I think that keeping our bedtime routine as normal as possible (most nights) helped the boys sleep well in the hotels which made the trip better for us all!
