Vacationing with Limited Mobility

Vacationing with Limited Mobility

For those with limited mobility, going on vacation can pose with it a series of challenges that the average person might not realize. It’s easy to take for granted the ability to leisurely stroll on a beach or get out of bed in the morning without the assistance of a wheelchair. Just as it is for anyone else, getting out of town and relaxing for a while is also important for those who have limited mobility. Here are a few must-have items to help make a vacation possible.

Travel Chair
One of the most important things you can bring on vacation is a travel chair that will help you enjoy the atmosphere right along with the rest of your family. A travel chair can help empower you to get out and enjoy the view, as well as having independent access to your hotel room, museums, or other places you choose to go. If you plan to spend lots of time touring, it may be in your best interest to invest in an electric travel chair, so you can limit arm fatigue and don’t have to depend on a family member to push you. Check out some great options at Pride Mobility.

Plan Well
Keep in mind that everyday activities may take a bit more time to carry out, so plan accordingly. Sometimes a more simple vacation is the best kind of vacation, because it allows for down-time and rest and relaxation. Rather than jam packing your days with activities, allow for longer travel times and some unscheduled periods of time, so you won’t feel rushed or frustrated if you’re unable to get to places as quickly as you’d hoped.

Mobility Scooters
Research mobility scooters for sale to see if you should invest in one before you go on your vacation. Mobility scooters can offer more independence than wheelchairs, and their durability may make them ideal to help you enjoy your vacation with greater ease. Mobility scooters can be used both indoors and outdoors, offering versatility depending on your vacation plans. Enjoy your vacation well and create memories that will last a life time.

This is a sponsored post however all opinions good or bad are mine and mine alone.

I have a confession, I do not really like to cook anymore. With 2 kids underfoot and days that are filled with dashing, dancing, rushing and running... ugh. Do I have to cook? I rely on my crockpot more than I care to acknowledge. 

Eating out is my favorite alternate to actually cooking. My husband isn't a fan because it can be costly.

Helping Moms Eliminate Stress With #LuvsLeakFreeHoliday

Please include the following in your post: “This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Luvs. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

The holiday season is a lot of fun, but it also has more stress than any other season. As a mother, diaper leaks at the worst times are a stress I want to eliminate, not only at the holidays but all of the time. We are using Luvs and loving them because they are less expensive than the other big brands and they give us great protection and a great fit.

Let me share a little more about Luv's and how they can help you this holiday season.

This holiday, Luvs wants everyone to celebrate a Leak-Free Holiday.
·        Luvs with NightLock offers its largest absorbency area EVER to help lock wetnessaway, which means less leaks during the holiday season for baby and more time for parents to enjoy the festivities.
·  Leaks can disrupt even the most routine baby’s sleep schedule during the holidays. Keeping baby leak-free through the night will make for a merrier morning.
·        LuvsLeak Barrier Leg Gathers ensure leaks are kept away from holiday outfits and in our diaper - where they belong!
·        Have you checked out Luvs adorable "Will It Leak" video series yet? Well,
tis’ the season of holiday miracles! And this year, Luvs is turning clicks into
free diapers. From December 9th - 25th, for every view their Will It Leak
"Santa Suit" video receives on their social media channels, Luvs will
give a diaper to a child in need through the Children’s Miracle Network.
·        Watch the video here:
·        The holiday fun doesn't stop there! This holiday, Luvs is also inviting parents to whip up a baby book for their child in a few quick clicks with Luvs and
Tweekaboo. Get yours here:'

 Please join Luvs and celebrity dad, expectant father and Donald Faison for a #LuvsLeakFreeHoliday Twitter Party on Thursday, December 11th, from 9-10pmEST, where we’ll be sharing personal holiday leak stories.

As a mom of 2 we have tried every brand of diapers, from fancy organic brands to the bottom of the barrel so cheap no one has ever heard of it brands because face it, baby will use thousands of diapers in a few years.

We always look for Luv's when we buy for Miss Harper because they work and the work well! She knock on wood never leaks and that is enough to make me keep coming back to the brand.

Guess what one lucky reader is going to get a chance to win a  Branded Luvs tote bag, #LuvsLeakFreeHoliday travel coffee mug, Hot chocolate, Luvs branded purple star ornament, MyFirst Kwanzaa book, Plush Musical Dreidel, Hanukkah gelt, Two packs of Luvs diapers and a tub of Luvs wipes!
