With longer, brighter days and warmer weather (yay!), it’s no wonder we all love getting out and about in springtime! If you’ve recently welcomed a new bundle of joy into the family, planning your next mini trip is even more exciting, but it can be daunting at times.
Worry not. Here at George, we’ve put together a handy guide of everything you’ll need to fully prepare for your baby’s day out. From pushchairs and travel bags to cute clothing and essential accessories, you’ll be more than ready to enjoy a spring adventure with your little one – no matter the weather!
Pick The Perfect Pram Or Pushchair
If you’re heading out for more than an hour or two, holding your baby in a carrier all day probably isn’t practical. So, bringing their pram or pushchair along is always a good idea. It’s perfect for nap time, can shield them from the sun, and will give you and your back a well-deserved break!
Driving to your destination? We’ve got you covered for that from day one and beyond. Our baby car seats meet all UK safety standards keeping your little love safe and secure on their travels.
Pack Feeding Accessories and Essentials
Whether they’re nursing, taking bottles, or eating solids, it’s likely your baby will need a meal or two (or three!) on your day out. Prepare for feeding your little one with our handy range of essentials. We have all the bottle feeding gear you and your bub could need, including baby bottles, breast pumps, bibs and muslin squares for those inevitable spillages!
The Cutest Clothes For Layering
Spring weather can be unpredictable at the best of times, so it’s always a good idea to dress your baby in light layers. If it starts getting a little warmer, you can easily slip off their knitwear or coat. Should temperatures drop, pop on another layer or two! Simply make sure you have a spare light baby girls cardigan or baby boys jumper in your bag when you leave the house – psst, we have THE cutest styles!
When looking after little humans, you’ve gotta be ready for accidents. So, if your baby misses their mouth (whoops!) or has a nappy leak, you’ll need to change your little wrigglers base outfit. Pack a spare sleepsuit, or a simple, foldable outfit so you can switch up their lil’ look at a moment’s notice. And yes, we have plenty of adorable boys’ and girls’ outfits to choose from this spring!
Stock Your Changing Kit
Unsure how many nappies to pack on your outing? Pack at least one for each hour you plan to be on the go, then add a couple of extras to your changing bag if you’re feeling extra cautious! You’ll need a good stash of baby wipes, nappy cream, and nappy bags for your trip – see how we keep you organised!
Be super prepped by packing a portable changing mat – we have tons of cute designs! It’s particularly handy if you’re going somewhere new and are unfamiliar with their changing facilities; plus, you’ll be able to change your baby’s nappy pretty much anywhere – even if it happens to be the back seat of the car!
Bring Baby Blankets For Spring
On spring days that feel closer to winter days, baby blankets are a must! Use them to keep your baby warm and snuggly in the pram or wrap them up in your arms. Our baby blankets are cute, cosy, and can easily be stored in your buggy bag too!
Pretend It’s Summer
Just because the day starts out grey doesn’t mean the sun won’t eventually break through! With the hope the sunny rays make an appearance, make sure you’re prepared to protect your bundle of joy with baby-safe SPF and a lightweight sun hat to cover their head – aww! They’ll be safe and happy in the sunshine and of course, they’ll look extra adorable in any photos you take!
Keep Them Entertained
To turn that mini frown upside down, don’t forget to pack one or two of their favourite baby toys. Choose ones they can happily sit and play with whilst in their pushchair, or on a mat when at a family picnic. You can also pop an activity toy into their pram, so they’re occupied on the move!
