If it’s cold, wrap up warm; if it’s hot, get out the sun block – but don’t stay indoors for too long! Your little one will relish being out in the fresh air, and its fun and healthy for you both too!
Of course, you can’t wait to start taking baby out and about and being on the go. And as baby gets older, you’ll love seeing the world through their eyes.
There’s no need to take the kitchen sink with you! Just a few basic items such as nappy changing items and bottled milk if not breastfeeding are all you will need at first. Don’t forget to wrap up your little one if it’s cold, or protect them from the sun. A quality car seat is also essential.
Nice and easy
Getting a breath of fresh air is a great way to take a break from a hectic day for you and your little one. And you might find that baby sleeps better after being out! Choose a quality pushchair that suits you and the kind of environment in which you live. You’ll want something robust, practical and easy to manoeuvre, so do a little research before making a final choice.
Going out with your little one is a great learning experience for them and is also a good way for you to meet other parents and make friends, for example in the local park or children’s play area.
On the road
Being on the road is enjoyable for you and your child as you explore the world together and venture further afield. You’ll need to follow a few golden rules to ensure your child’s safety, and then there will be no stopping you!
You will need to buy a quality car seat and make sure it is installed properly. Never buy second-hand – even if the car seat looks new, as it may still be damaged and dangerous.
Once that’s in place, you can relax and enjoy being on the go with your little one – the world is your oyster!
