Being a new parent can be very exhausting, especially when you have to travel with the little bundle of joy. You will find that you go from a purse or wallet to a house full of items to accommodate the little baby. It was so easy to go places before he or she was born; however, there are tips to transform those two-hour, getting ready exercises to just a few minutes. Trust me, they do work.
It is always best to schedule the outings. This means that you can get the baby’s items ready the day before. Collect the items that you will need during the outing the day before and place it in the closet. The next day, all you will have to do is get your cute little one dressed and ready to go.
It happens to us all, there is always something popping up and forcing us to go out of the house. When this happens we have to scramble to get items ready, such as formula or bottles, and so much more. In order to keep this from being an issue, you can pack a generic bag to keep in the closet or the car. This will greatly reduce the time you spend gathering everything you need to get out of the house.
What to Pack
Most of the items will remain the same no matter how long you will be gone; however, you may have to pack a few extra items like a play-pin or extra clothes and food. Here is a list that you can use for a generic bag for quick departure from your home.
- 2 Pairs of Clothes – Match the Season
- Extra Jacket
- Bottles or Sip Cups
- Bottled Water
- Wet Wipes
- Powder or Diaper Ointment
- 2 Extra Pacifiers
- 2 Additional Small Blankets – Keep in the car.
- Play-Pin – Keep in the car.
- Additional Hat
- Extra Socks
- Extra Shoes or Booties – Match to season.
- Small Stroller – Keep in the car.
Keep in mind that some items can be kept in your car. Buying double may cost a bit extra, but when you compare the additional cost to the time you have to waste to get ready on a consistence basis, it is definitely worth supplying your car with a baby kit.
