Baby bag checklist for days out

Created by lorna in Age: At School, Age: Baby & Toddler, Age: On the way, Age: Pre-school, Being a Granny-carer

source click Since becoming a Grandma 6 years ago, medstore | I have learnt to adapt to the different needs each age group brings. I am least confident with newborn babies, so I see my role as a support for the mother and entertainment for the older child.

Last year it was easy, but now with the addition of a 4-month-old baby, I knew that a simple trip to the local Farm Park would need some thought and the inevitable list. Timing of the trip to coincide with her feed was my first priority.  Fortunately her mother was becoming an expert on coping with 3 children and so I followed her advice and it was decided that we would go in the morning.

click The weather suddenly turned hot and sunny so it was decided that we would go to the beach for the day.  This would require another list. Feeding the baby would not be a problem as Mummy was coming too but it was left to me to get everything else sorted.  My first brainwave was dumping the handbag and using a haversack instead.  This meant that most of the previous listed items could be put in one bag and I would still have two free hands. Additional items were:


  • A detachable baby car seat
  • Swimming costumes and towels
  • Buckets and spades
  • An igloo (for shade and shelter)
  • An icebox full of fingerfood, snacks and drink
  • A first aid kit (Grannynet shop £15.50)

Grandpa found some shade and kept an eye on baby granddaughter.  Mummy played with the other two and I just joined in helping where needed.  One thing I would recommend is asking the driver to go as near to the beach as possible as carting all the gear to the beach is hard work even if we all helped.

see url I am very aware that the 4-month-old grandchild’s needs will change as she develops so I have started to look on the internet for some advice.  I recommend www.babycentre.co.uk/baby/travel/greatbritishbeaches.

  • Or disposable bottles (Single use bottles – Grannynet shop £3.99) and a carton of ready made milk
