Out And About With Baby

These first tentative adventures once you’ve built up the courage are awash with many an emotion; excitement, concern, self-doubt, but ultimately, pride. Pride in exploring the world with your new baby, in showing him or her off to the world, and moulding their ever absorbent minds in the best way you know how, by pointing things out while trying not to plough into things as you stare all ‘goo-goo eyed’ at your little slumbering offspring in the pram as you walk.

Preparation for any excursion, be it nipping to the shops or a jaunt around the park is key, and these rudimentary essentials below should be staple items for the inevitable:

  • An appropriate man bag to keep it all in
  • Junior’s favourite pacifier
  • Changing mat
  • Wet wipes
  • A good few nappies
  • Nappy rash cream
  • Nappy bags
  • Formula milk essentials or baby formula carton
  • Snacks if baby is over 6 months
  • Bib
  • Water bottle if baby over 3 months
  • Muslin to keep your shoulders clean
  • Change of baby clothes
  • And finally, a little refreshment for yourself

Above all else enjoy your time with Junior, and remember to take lots of photos to show mum just how well you did on your own.
