Having a new baby can be scary. Every new thing that comes along can freak even the most calm person out. For me that big freakout was outings. I was so worried about every outing and making sure we had everything we needed and planned as much as possible. Today I am sharing with you my 3 tips to survive any outing with a baby.
3 Tips To Survive Any Outing With A Baby
Tip 1: Be Prepared. When I was pregnant I started trying to figure out what to keep in our diaper bag. I asked a lot of friends, looked at lists online, and then after about 3 outings with Liam I figured out what we really needed. Making sure we had plenty of formula, extra outfits, burp cloths, and of course diapers and wipes is VERY important! We are a pampers loving family. We use Pampers Swaddlers diapers and Pampers wipes every single day. We love Pampers Swaddlers and how well they fit our little boy and are great to avoid leaks. They keep him clean and dry all day and all night. We take Liam out a ton. We go for walks almost daily, and I take him with me to the gym and on errands as well as just fun outings for the 3 of us. Having great diapers and wipes and being prepared with all the things we may need is so important and takes so much stress out of every outing. I remember asking all of my friends which diapers to use and Pampers Swaddlers was the response every single time! Make sure you are prepared and you will survive any outing with a baby!
Right now there are 2 amazing in store events with Pampers and BRU: 3/29-4/12: FREE $20 GIFT CARD WITH ANY 2 PAMPERS VALUE BOXES OF DIAPERS REG 42.99 INSTORE ONLY and 3/29-4/22: 12.99 PAMPERS WIPES REG 15.99.
Tip 2: Plan Ahead. With an 8 week old baby planning ahead can be kind of hard. Last week just as we were leaving Liam spit up. So of course, outfit change and then a new diaper. So we were out the door about 20 minutes later than I had planned. But if you know you are going to have an outing or go on a walk try to plan ahead. I try to time everything around naps and feedings. It really makes those outings a lot easier if the baby is full, happy, and dry when you leave! We have a trip coming up to visit family in Houston and our first long car trip so I am so glad we are stocked up on Pampers to get us through!
Tip 3: Let It Go. No matter how much you are prepared and plan ahead things just happen. Babies spit up, and have blowouts, and cry. My biggest thing is learning to just let it go. When Liam starts crying in the middle of Nordstrom while Andrew is trying on shoes I have to remember he’s a baby and people get it. I can’t worry about what others think or stress. I have to just handle the situation. My biggest advice is to just let it go and enjoy every outing. Having those items you need like Pampers with you will help you for sure!
I would love to know any tips you have to survive any outing with a baby!
