After a few outings with a baby who frequently vomits, you'll swear that hurling could be an Olympic event. Here are a few things to carry with you when your kid's a champion hurler.

By Suelain Moy

___ Lots of wipes, tissues, and burping bibs or cloths.

___ One or two changes of clothing for baby.

___ An extra T-shirt for yourself (or be sure to dress in layers).

___ A plastic bag to hold all soiled laundry items.

___ A bottle of water -- for you to guzzle when you're nervous and sweating.

___ A small pocket mirror to make sure none has landed in your hair -- baby also can play with it when you change him for the umpteenth time.

___ A blanket or towel to double as a wrap for baby when all his clean clothes are gone.

___ A vanilla-based spritzer or scent so you can blame that sickly sweet smell on your new perfume.

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
