Mengo Phone Car Mount
What is it? A game changing $10 piece of plastic that you can mount your phone on in the car. Instead of looking down to your lap to see the Waze directions you are trying to follow or to see who might be calling, your phone is in front of you and you can keep your eyes on the road – where they should be!
Why we love it? As moms, we are – for better or worse – basically attached to our phones. Mengo – and other mounts like these (MagicMount is another one we love!) enable us to get where we’re going, and do what we need to do, while staying safe. They are small, inexpensive, can be moved from car to car, and work for almost all phones and cases. We truly have no idea how we’ve been surviving without them for this long! WESTPORTMOMS TIP: Sometimes your phone provider will throw these in with a new phone or upgrade, so don’t hesitate to ask!
Cool Gear Travel Potty
What is it? A travel potty for kids (or adults…?) that is a $19 life saver. Unlike most travel pottys, this one uses ziploc bags for whatever it is that goes into it, which makes clean up quick, easy, and pretty much odor-free.
Why we love it? All of us have been in the car – or at the beach – with a child who refused to pee before you left home, and suddenly has to go with no time to spare. This potty collapses down to a tiny flat container for easy storage and converts quickly into all you’d ever need. With compartments on the side for plastic bags and extra wipes – or even underwear – this ingenious potty lives in our trunks and has saved us hundreds of times. It even made it to the July 4th fireworks, and was possibly the biggest hit of the night. WESTPORTMOMS TIP: Get it from Walmart for the lowest price by far!
