Have a trip with children in the toddler years is meaningful and memorable. Meantime we can't ever deny that it's one of the most difficult things we've experienced. We need to keep an eye on a little one, chase around her/him almost every minute, and we have to certainly add to the amount of gear we needed to pack.
But it never stopped us from the outing, and the functional essential gears give us more help too. In this article, we will share a packing list of essential gears you need to prepare while you plan an outing with your Toddler.
1. TODDLERS' CAR SEATS
It's the best way to protect your kids on a car trip. Choose the best car seat that fits your child's weight, size, and age, as well as your vehicle.
2. HIKING TODDLER CARRIER
For those who love walking and hiking in nature, you can’t look past Hiking Toddler Carrier. It can keep you and your child happy on the trail.
It's necessary because kids are always hungry and need to eat food. Portable high chair, spill-proof sippy，easy clean bibs，no-spill snack cups，reusable food clips... all of these are essential.
Always keep a good supply of snacks to keep kids full and happy. You can prepare snacks like rice cakes, carrot sticks, sultanas, cereal bars, and food pouches.
5. FIRST AID KIT
Scrapes and cuts are likely to happen, especially while outing with kids. Make sure you have packed a first aid kit including adhesive bandages, gauze pads, sterile wipes, hydrocortisone cream, hydrogen peroxide, tweezers, aspirin, and any prescription meds.
6. INSECT REPELLENT
Mosquitos, flies, and other insects are also coming with warm weather. So, don’t forget the insect repellent with you. And keep away from standing water which will breed ground mosquitos, black flies, and other insects.
About the clothing pack, here are two principles: dress in layers and prepare extra clothes. Your kids can change clothes according to the weather: remove a layer or two if it’s unusually warm, add clothing if the weather turns cold. Long sleeve shirts and pants are necessary as they will also help keep the bugs at bay.
