Taking your baby out Dos and Donts

(0 reviews)

Once your baby is a little older and starts understanding the world around, a little outdoor time will be good for both you and the baby.

Before you venture out with the baby, though, make sure you are prepared so that you are not caught off guard.

Here’s what can help you plan for those little outings with your baby.


Make sure you dress the baby appropriately for the outdoors. If it’s likely to be cold, cover the baby’s head, hands and feet.

The best time to take baby out is after a feed and diaper change


Carry a diaper bag with all baby essentials with you such as diapers, wipes and a change of clothes


If possible, take a friend or family along while heading out with your baby for company and help.

Use a baby carrier as it offers a comfortable, baby-friendly hands-free option

Keep a hand-sanitizer with you

Be prepared for feeding your baby on the go as any feeding schedules may get disturbed once the baby is out of the house.


Don’t go very far or for too long or to place you haven’t gone before

Avoid exposure to unwanted germs by limiting the time spent in crowded places

Stay away from anyone who is ill

Avoid going out in the afternoon when it is very sunny

Don’t let strangers touch your baby – ask them politely but firmly to keep their hands off

Don’t worry if things don’t go as you had planned. Be realistic and flexible when you’re out with the baby.
