Author of "The Safe Baby: A Do-It-Yourself Guide for Home Safety", Debra Smiley Holtzman, gives 10 must-haves for every mom's purse in order to have a "safe baby."
Here's the list:
~small umbrella (UV if possible)
~nexcare band-aid variety pack (nexcare brand because they have 360 degree adhesive which prevents germs from getting in...also the shape stays on those tiny little fingers best).
~cell phone with camera
~solar charger (for ipods, blackberry, etc...)
~small pad & pen
~LED flashlight (or any small flashlight)
~reusable bag (we're all trying to go green and can never remember to bring them on our grocery trips, right!?)
~3-in-1 beauty product (you never know when you'll run into someone important, lol)
And my additions....
