Hip and Hydrated

My friend and guest blogger Mary Jo DiLonardo, family and education editor at Atlanta magazine (Read her Mommy Diaries blog) found this cool backpack she wanted to tell us about: Whether you’re going on some serious trekking expedition or just hiking through the neighborhood park, nothing can spoil a good jaunt like a dropped sippy cup. Now your tyke can go hands-free in style with Outside Baby’s Hydro Pack. The mini backpack has an integrated hydration system so your little one can suck down water from a tube while walking, plus there’s room for a couple of toys or snacks in the zippered compartment. I have one and it’s too dinky for my rugged 9-year-old boy to wear (he carries a full-size adult bag to school and there’s no way he’d be caught wearing a little kid’s bag) but it would be perfect for a 4- or 5-year-old. I’d even consider toting it myself if we were going hiking and I just wanted to take along some water, M&Ms, my cellphone and keys (true outdoor essentials. Especially the chocolate.) It retails for $49.99.
