Stepping outside and exploring nature with your little one is bound to be a lot of fun. Before you two start your adventure, you’ll need to make sure that you pack the right products to take care of precious, young, to-die-for skin while you’re outdoors.
Pack some baby cream or baby lotion to ensure your little one’s skin is soft and smooth at all times. Being out in the wind and dry air can really irritate your infant’s skin if you don’t have the right products, so make sure you double check your diaper bag before you leave the house.
Making a Checklist
Outdoor activities are a great way for both you and your little one to get some physical exercise. If you want to make sure that you have a great time while you’re outdoors, then you need to make a packing checklist for your diaper bag. Consider packing the following items, in addition to the standard diaper bag necessities:
- Baby cream
- Baby lotion
- Baby powder
- Soft towels and blankets
- First aid kit
- A snack and water for you
- A snack and bottle for baby if you are not nursing
As you can see, little explorers often need a lot of items before they can go outside and play. Having all of the right items is the first step in making sure that you two have a great time exploring the natural world. Once you make a checklist, check things off as you pack them and then move on the next item. Once you’ve packed everything it’s a good idea to go back and check your bag once more. You don’t want to take the chance that you’ll get outdoors and not have something you need.
Tips for Time Outdoors
It’s a good idea for moms to use diaper bags with waterproof lining when they are packing to take their babies outdoors. Taking the time to select this kind of bag will ensure that it doesn’t get ruined if your baby cream or baby lotion spills out in the bottom of it. It will be a lot easier for you to clean up too, so you can spend more time with your precious little one.
