Your little one’s first spring is an exciting milestone for the whole family, and with plenty of sunny skies to explore, there’s nothing better than taking your child out for an adventure. But choosing what to pack for day trips is never easy and deciding what’s essential and what’s not can feel like a daunting task.
With each season comes fresh new clothing challenges. Thanks to spring’s unpredictable weather, it’s a harder time than most to prepare for. If you’re wondering how to dress your little one for the changing temperature, then layers are the way to go.
We recommend kitting them out with a soft all-in-one before adding tops, cardigans and blankets for trips outside. For extra warmth during chilly morning walks, try an adorable hat and mitten set. Not only will layers offer more flexibility than one thick coat, but they will help you deal with any seasonal changes quickly.
Taking your little one for a walk is a fantastic way to spend some quality time together and introduce them to warmer weather. To ensure that both you and your child stay comfortable while you’re making the most of the great outdoors, prioritise picking the perfect pram.
While a lightweight collapsible stroller is a fantastic choice if you live in a city or town, an all-terrain style pushchair is best for bumpy countryside roads. Wherever you’re going, keep a blanket or shawl close at hand to ensure your little one stays snug when the temperature drops.
Change & Go
Every parent knows that dealing with nappy emergencies is part and parcel of any outdoor trip. With this in mind, a changing bag is essential to making sure you stay well equipped and ready for action.
Useful for holding everything from nappies and hand sanitisers to bottles and snacks, investing in a good quality changing bag will be a lifesaver when you and your baby are on the go. To help yours stand out from the crowd, try picking one with a pretty pattern, such as our cute dinosaur design.
They might have just eaten, but children can grow hungry again at a moment’s notice. For fuss-free feeding while your child is still a newborn, it’s worth stocking up on baby bottles, breast pumps and muslin squares.
As they develop and grow, you can keep them clean and comfortable during picnics at the park with brightly-coloured beakers, bibs, spoons and wipes. After all, a full traveller is a happy one!
Whether you’re a first-time parent or you’ve 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. Even so, a car seat is a necessity that can’t be done without, even on the shortest trips.
For an affordable option you can also 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 for a whole host of adventures.
