Whether you’re taking your little one to the shops, visiting relatives or going on holiday, their first adventure is an exciting milestone for the whole family. But choosing what to pack is never easy and deciding what’s essential and what’s not can feel like a daunting task.
Thankfully, our travel checklist includes everything you and your little one need to stay happy on the go, including car seats, changing bags and feeding must-haves.
The Perfect Pushchair
Taking your little one for a walk is a great way to enjoy some quality time together in different surroundings. Picking the perfect pushchair is key to ensuring you and your child make the most of the great outdoors.
If you live in a city or town, a lightweight collapsible stroller is a fantastic choice, while an all-terrain style pushchair is best for bumpy walks in the countryside. Wherever you’re going, keep a blanket or shawl close at hand to make sure your baby stays snug when the temperature drops.
The Best Baby Changing Bags
When you’re out and about with your child, it’s important to ensure you’re well equipped to deal with any surprise nappy emergencies. One thing that’s essential is a changing bag. Useful for holding everything from nappies and hand sanitiser to changing pads, bottles and snacks, investing in a good quality changing bag will be a lifesaver when you and your baby are on the go.
While changing bags vary in size and style, picking one with a jazzy pattern will help yours stand out from the crowd. From pink polka dots to Disney designs and adorable animal prints, we have plenty of choice for families on the move.
Whether you’re a first-time parent or have done it all before, choosing a car seat can be confusing. With so many different designs available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you and your child. For an affordable option that you can adapt as your baby grows, why not try our Harmony 2-in-1 convertible car seat? Transforming into a booster seat when your little one’s big enough, this safe and comfortable design is the ideal way to transport your child.
Ensuring your little one is comfortable on the go is key, so it’s best to dress them in layers that can easily be removed instead of a thick coat. We suggest starting with a cosy all-in-one before adding cardigans and blankets for trips outside.
They might have just eaten, but children can grow hungry again at a moment’s notice. To feed your newborn on the go, it’s worth investing in some baby bottles, breast pumps and muslin squares.
Or, if your child is a little older, keep them clean and comfortable while they eat by stocking up on beakers, bibs, spoons and wipes. After all, a full traveller is a happy one!
