4 Ways To Prepare For A Mobile Baby

Liam is starting to crawl. I can’t believe it’s happening! I’m so excited to see the determination and excitement on his little face. We weren’t quite as ready, but we got ready fast, so today I am going to share 4 ways to prepare for a mobile baby in case you find yourself in this situation!

4 Ways TO Prepare For A Mobile Baby

Baby Proof: So we went back and forth on exactly how much baby proofing we wanted to do. This is what we decided. We have a baby gate at the top and bottom of our stairs since the upstairs is mostly Liam’s anyways. We also have outlet covers on all the unused outlets. We have wires out of reach. We have locks on any cabinet that has chemicals or medicine. In our kitchen nothing breakable is low to the ground… mostly just tupperware and pots and pans.

Diaper Proof: We really needed a diaper that works better with a mobile baby and that’s where Pampers Cruisers came in. Since we have been a Pampers family since Liam was born, trying the Cruisers out was something we were looking forward to. They really fit his little body well for moving and being on the go. He wants to stand, crawl, and move around nonstop and these are perfect. Cruisers’ unique 3-way fit adapts at waist, legs and bottom for more flexibility, and the flexible leg cuffs gently seal around baby’s legs for a strong leakage barrier. The soft, stretchy sides help the diaper stay in place, flexing with baby’s every move. Pampers Cruisers have Extra Absorb Channels for 12-hour dryness and less sagging.

We go to Sam’s Club every Saturday and their new Scan & Go pay on your phone app has made life with a baby so much easier. We don’t have to wait in line – we just stop, scan all the items, pay and show our phone on the way out the door! So easy! If you are a Sams Club shopper like us, make sure you have the app! Seriously, it’s life changing and time saving! Download the app on both Apple App Store and Google Play.

With Club Pickup you can order your Pampers Cruisers on samsclub.com and have everything waiting for you when you arrive to the club. You don’t even need to leave your car in some clubs – a life saver when you have sleeping kids in tow!

Shop at Sam’s Club or samsclub.com before October 31 and get an instant savings of $8 AND free shipping or Club Pickup when you buy two packages of Pampers diapers. You can also go to the Pampers Cruisers product page and order your diapers for delivery straight to your door.




Clothes: So this is one I didn’t think a TON about, but Liam has a hard time moving around in pants right now as he’s learning. So lately we’ve been letting him hang out at home in the diaper and t-shirt. Especially if it’s not super cold. The pants tend to make it a bit more challenging to crawl so while he’s learning we figured we’d make it a bit easier on him.

Sanity: I am what some may call a control freak. So a baby that gets into everything and doesn’t stay where you put them is a bit hard for me. Or at least it was at first. Having a baby has for sure made me learn to “let go” of things I can’t control and embrace the crazy. You have to have sanity with a mobile baby, or at least pretend to. Trust me, they are in EVERYTHING.

What else should I know about having a mobile baby? Let me know below!

  2. That reminded me of a memory when Caden was about 18 months (he’s now 16). He opened the child-proof pantry lock and I found him sitting in there eating a bag of marshmallows. Which as you know he could have choked on. It freaked me out but no harm, no foul and now it’s a fun memory.

    Wow! I miss that age. I have 4 kids of my own and I have to say, I’d love to go back to that time except for the diaper changes. Enjoy every minute.

  5. Great tips. I would also so make sure you keep the bathroom doors closed. That tends to be my kids favorite room when they start moving.

    Getting some diapers that are going to work well with all of the moving around is super important. As soon as my kids were mobile, they wanted to do all sorts of exploring.

    Gosh I don’t really remember when my kids first went “mobile” haha. I know the boys were into everything though, whereas my first born and only daughter was less curious!

  10. My third is due this November, so our house is still totally baby proofed. We use lots of gates and keep anything breakable or dangerous put away.
