Essentials For Your First Outdoor Trip With Baby

One of the most exciting milestones in your parenting journey is your first outing with your newborn. While taking them out into the world is a right of passage, it can also come with fear and trepidation. To help put your mind at ease, creating a checklist of essentials is an excellent way to prepare and ensure you don't leave any necessities behind. We've compiled a list of essentials for your first outdoor trip with your baby so that you can enjoy every moment of your adventure!

Diapers And Wipes

As you've learned, newborns go through a lot of diapers, so ensuring you're fully stocked before your outing is essential. Even if you're only planning on being out for a short time, don't underestimate the number of diaper changes you may have. Keeping your travel bag well stocked with diapers and wipes, along with diapering essentials like cream and ointment, is a true essential!

Nursing Cover

Breastfeeding moms often choose to use a nursing cover in public to ensure their and their baby's privacy as they eat. Although this is their main purpose, nursing covers come in handy for a variety of other needs like blocking light while baby sleeps, sun protection, and even a blanket or burp cloth.


Even if your baby isn't a huge fan of the pacifier, they can come in handy if they become fussy. Keeping one in your diaper bag for emergencies is a must for all outings.

A Change Of Clothes (Or Two)

Let's face it; babies are messy. Whether it's a diaper blowout or spit-up, you're going to want to ensure you're prepared with at least one change of clothes on hand. If you're short on space, consider packing a sleeper or onesie, which don't take up much space but work well in a pinch.

Bottle And Formula

If you're bottle feeding, be sure to take at least one extra bottle and enough formula for one feeding on your outing. You never want to find yourself with a hungry newborn and no way to feed them, so be sure to stay adequately stocked for feeding to ensure a happy baby.


Keeping a blanket on hand is essential, even if the weather is warm since many stores are often cold. You can use a blanket to swaddle a tired and fussy baby, cover them and offer protection from other people or the elements, or for privacy during feeding.

Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer isn't just for killing bacteria on your body; you can use it to disinfect other surfaces in a pinch. If you need to use a changing table, quickly wipe it down with your sanitizer, and always be sure to use it before handling your little one!
