Stepping out with your baby

(0 reviews)

When you take your baby out of the house, you’ll want to be prepared for any situation. But don’t go overboard and weigh yourself down. Be prepared with your baby’s bag to meet any situation.

Here’s what you’re likely to need in baby’s diaper bag.

For an afternoon outing:

Extra clothing: Take along a complete change of clothing, including socks.

Diapers: Plan on packing one diaper for every three hours you’re away from home, plus one extra.

Diaper wipes: Other than dirty diapers, you can also use wipes to clean up before handling your baby.

A plastic storage bag: Carry one to place used diapers and wipes. This is an important hygienic practice.

A pacifier: Keep one, if your baby uses one. It helps in certain situations.

A hat: Specially when it is sunny outside.

A towel or cloth diaper: You’ll need something to hold under her chin when you burp her.

A healthy snack and water for mother: These two items are especially important if you’re breastfeeding. To help maintain your energy, pack one or more of the following: apple, banana, nutrition bar, pretzels, dried fruit, biscuits, panjiri, or fruit juice just in case.

For an overnight stay.

In addition to everything listed above, your baby will need:

Extra outfits: Pack at least two clean outfits for every day you’ll be away from home, plus one extra. If you’re flying, put at least a day’s worth in your carry-on luggage.

A baby blanket: This is for the extra warmth, in case one is not available.

Clothing: Pajamas, uppers and extra booties for her comfort.

Keep a note of the weather.

Check on the forecast before you leave home and you’ll be even better prepared for an outing with your baby. Depending on the current weather and the forecast, you may want to pack these items as well:

Extra blanket

A heavy hat

Ear covers



Your baby’s bag is her world. Apart from your love and care, it is important that she has a complete bag at her disposal. And only you can ensure it.
