Travelling with a newborn baby: a day’s trip

Starting off with shorter, one-day trips or outings with your baby can be a good idea. So, when you plan to go out on such trips, make sure to carry a baby bag with all the baby essentials.

  • A changing mat is important because small babies may need frequent changes, whether it is clothes or diapers.
  • Keep diapering essentials like diaper pack and Baby Dove Diaper Rash Cream.
  • Carry good quality baby wipes such as Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Wipes.
  • Keep some swaddling cloths for really small babies.
  • Don’t forget to keep extra pairs of clothes in case your baby spills something or wets the clothes. So, be prepared for such accidents with more clothes.
  • Add a napkin or small hand towel for wiping your baby.
  • Carry bibs to prevent clothes from getting spoiled during feeding. 
  • Feeding essentials like sterilised bottles, nipples, and milk are also important. But if your baby’s older and on solids then some of their favourite foods should be added to the baby bag. If you use a bowl and spoon do add that as well.
  • Last but definitely not the least, add in some of your baby’s favourite toys to keep them engaged.

While your regular baby bag is enough for a day’s trip, you need a few more baby essentials when journeying or staying out overnight. So, make sure to add in baby oil, baby bar or baby wash, and baby lotion. Moreover, baby skin loses moisture 5 times that of adults. So, you need to keep it moisturised through the day. 

Baby Dove has some of the most wonderful baby products for your little one. The Rich Moisture range is carefully crafted to keep your baby’s tender skin soft, supple and nourished through the day. Baby Dove products are hypoallergenic, paediatrician-tested and free from added parabens, dyes and phthalates and that’s why safe on your baby’s skin. Baby Dove goes beyond mildness to moisturise baby skin and provide superior care.
