Good things come in small packages (hello, little baby), but baby’s essentials (sunscreen, shampoo, body wash) seem to be supersize only.
Which means when it comes to air travel, the TSA has the right to confiscate your ecofriendly baby body wash for sensitive skin I special-ordered online for this trip and can’t get anywhere else; please don’t take it, sir.
Unless, that is, you shop at 3floz.com, the website that specializes in beauty products available in TSA-approved sizes. The go-to for in-the-know travelers has just added kids’ goods to the mix. Fill your Ziploc with popular selections from lines like Md Moms, Little Twig, and Lather. Everything from gentle body wash to a mineral-based sunscreen is available in a size that meets airport security standards — and yours.
