Must Have Baby Supplies on the Go

Being a new parent certainly doesn’t mean that life has to slow down. Instead, You’ll just have to change the way that you do things slightly, such as by carrying extra items with you when you run your weekly errands. If you are an active parent and don’t want to hire a babysitter to take care of your little one as you take care of business away from home, there are several must-have items you need to consider carrying with you in order to make you and your child’s travel experiences as stress free as possible.

This article was written with the less obvious items in mind. So you won’t find car seats, diaper bags, strollers or pacifiers here. What you will find, however, are the helpful little things that are easily forgotten.  Keep reading for a list of must have baby supplies for when you’re on the go!

Electricity-Free Food & Beverage Warmers

Electricity-free food and beverage warmers are great for taking long trips when you don’t know whether you’ll have easy access to a kitchen or a restaurant. When your travel time starts to run into your baby’s next scheduled feeding time, you can simply pull out their warm food container and feed your child as if you were sitting at home.  This will stop them from crying because they are hungry, and will stop you from needing to rush home in order to feed them on time.

Baby Seat

Baby seats are especially useful if you find yourself standing in a long line or in any situation where you may have to sit still for a while and you don’t want to exhaust yourself by holding your child the entire time. Plus, a good baby seat will allow your child to sit in an upright position with perfect posture. Independence can also be established if your child isn’t constantly being held by mummy or daddy. With that said, a baby seat can come in useful at home as well, so is a must buy item.

Baby Nasal Aspirator

What is the one thing you can expect to happen more than anything else during your early parenting years? I will give you a hint: It involves a great deal of tissue usage and is widely considered gross by non-parents. The answer is cleansing your baby’s stuffy nose.  A nasal aspirator can be used as an effective replacement for facial tissue used to clear your child’s nostrils of mucus. It is a rubber, one-piece designed bulb and syringe, that is small enough to be stored in any handbag or purse, and can be carried with you anywhere.

Taking the time and spending a little extra money to gather the necessary items before taking your baby outside the house will lessen any potentially stressful situations and facilitate your efforts to keep your baby happy, healthy, and hopefully, free of tears.  Keep the above items in mind, and consider taking them with you every time you leave the house.
