Biofreeze and I LOVE IT. Biofreeze is a Pain Relieving Spray made with natural menthol, Arnica, Calendula, Chamomile, Echinacea, Juniper Berry, and White Tea and lots of other natural and magical ingredients. Spritz down with this stuff after your shower, and you feel like you've just had an amazing deep-tissue massage. Biofreeze helps me recover from my runs more quickly and eases all my muscle tension. Whether you are a stress-case, an athlete, or both, I reccommend you give this stuff a try.
Pet Calm would keep him feeling nice and mellow for the duration of his journey. Apparently dogs drink more when they are nervous, so spiking his travel crate water bottle with some of this stuff should help him relax for the whole flight. A few drops of Pet Calm and a half of a regular OTC Dramamine and our buddy will be cool as a cucumber. Now I just need something for my nerves...
Zico Coconut Water with Mango is particularly yummy. Some quick facts about coconut water: it has five essential electrolytes, more potassium than a banana, low acidity, no fat and no sugar added. It leaves you with the refreshed and hydrated feeling you get after chugging a Gatorade, but without the sugary jitters, or the shame in having just drank something the color of anti-freeze. Two thumbs up... feeling better already.
BumpyName Orbit bottle labels from Inchbug. They are dishwasher safe, fit snuggly on any bottle, provide a little grippiness when the babe is ready to hold his bevvie himself and, unlike sticker labels, these bands never fade, fall-off or leave a gummy residue. I thought they were a great find, and figure they'll come in handy for years, moving from baby bottles to sippy cups to hockey game water bottles, until they are so blatantly uncool that Baby J "loses them" at school. One day at a time, Mama C: everything is going to go swimmingly, I promise!
