Last year we went to Europe for 3 months with our 3 children (then aged 4, 2.5 years, and 7 months old). I talked in this post about how we made this work and in today’s post, I’m going to talk about the eight items that ended up being the most useful equipment we took that made our lives way easier as we traveled with such young children. A few of these were last-minute decisions that we were super happy we made, and others were extremely well-researched, deeply-considered purchases that ended up being worth every single penny.
As a full-time mom to three little ones (4 years old, 2.5 years old, and 3 months old) it’s not always easy to carve out time for exercise and it’s also far too easy to make excuses for myself! So, I’ve written up my Top Ten Go-To Fitness Products that either help me stay motivated; help me stay on top of my fitness goals; or make it easy to exercise even if I have to do it with all my kids. I’ve included a “Why I love this” description and a link that will take you to Amazon where you can find more reviews and current prices. So, keep reading below for what makes working out with toddlers easier for THIS mom.
