Baby's Day Out: What to Bring
I used to stress out whenever we plan to go out with the baby. I tend to bring more stuff than what is actually needed. In fact, if I could bring the whole house to make sure I forget nothing, I surely would have done it like seriously.
Now that I'm a mother of two, I have finally come up with a list on what I think are the most essential things to bring when we go out with our baby.
Diaper and Wipes/Wet CottonFact: Babies just eat, sleep, and poop. Another fact: Babies will do it anytime and anywhere.
The number of extra diapers to bring depends on the peeing/pooping habit of the baby. I usually bring 3-4 diapers but I only get to use one or two most of the time.
For cleaning, I prefer to use cotton balls soaked in water. I put these on milk storage bottles for easy handling. The wipes is just something I bring in case I ran out of wet cotton.
In case of diaper leaks and spilled milk.
Feeding Bottle and Milk
Since I'm no longer breastfeeding, I have to bring formula, and feeding bottles.
I also bring water so I don't need to buy outside.
Nursing BlanketBack when I was still breastfeeding my little man, I bring nursing blanket instead of the feeding bottles.
I'm all for breastfeeding and I believe it should be acceptable to even do it on public.
However, I hate getting unwanted stares from people who thinks that breastfeeding should be done on comfort rooms. *eye rolls*
Stroller or Baby CarrierI gave birth to an eight-pound baby and he's gaining weight day by day. I definitely need something to help me bring all that weight. This would also allow me to use my arms for something else, such as bringing grocery bags. Also if the little man decides to sleep, he can just lie down on the stroller comfortably.
These are some things I find necessary to bring when going out with the baby.
I know babies are different and each may have different needs, so my list may not be sufficient for some.
I would love to know what stuff you bring for your baby when you go out. :)
If you wish to add something that you think I should bring on our next day out, please feel free to leave a message on the comments section.
