Having a child not only means bringing a new living being into the world, but also that your life changes all at once. Little hands constantly reach up to you and indicate that you want to be carried. Likewise, all of a sudden your purse is no longer enough, you need diapers, snacks and toys on the go. For both eventualities we have the right accessories ready.
Even if we love to carry our children through life, sometimes we want to have our hands free to go shopping in peace or to do other things that arise in everyday life. At the same time, our child carriers and diaper bags are also ideal for hiking trips or traveling.
Most women do not leave home without a handbag. As a parent, you will experience the same with the diaper bag. Because it's vital with a baby or toddler. It holds all the essentials for when you're on the go - and it can not only be ultra-practical, but also make a chic accessory on the stroller. When buying, make sure that the bag is large and has as much space as possible for all the necessities. The more subdivisions and compartments it has, the more practical it is in use. Many models also have a changing mat already integrated.
Our packing list for the first time with diaper bag
As the name diaper bag already says, it is primarily intended for changing diapers on the go. So it is essential to put enough diapers, a changing mat (if not already integrated in the bag), wet wipes, a disinfectant and a bag or a small trash bag for dirty diapers and laundry.
Here it depends on how old your child is. If it is still breastfed, nursing pads or possibly a bottle are essential, as are spit-up wipes. Later, a sippy cup, bibs, baby food and a spoon.
Whether it's a wild day at the playground or a little accident while changing diapers, you should always have a change of clothes: a bodysuit, a onesie and tights, and a second hat never hurt.
Even the smallest ones like to be entertained, in the beginning a pacifier, a teething ring or a rattle is enough, later a children's book, stuffed animals and crayons.
A Kraxe is another word for a back carrier, which is particularly suitable for long trips or hiking tours with children from 6 months. You can set up most models, they offer plenty of storage space and the child also sits ergonomically in a specially secured seat, often a sun canopy is also integrated.
The big advantage of a Kraxe?
Instead of being restricted by a stroller on long hiking tours, the Krax allows you the greatest possible freedom. Steep mountain ridges and summit climbs are possible with it - and you can enjoy nature in a relaxed way together with your little family. We give you tips for hiking with the back carrier.
He who eats, eats happily. Children in particular have understood this, and are often just happy when they can hold a small snack in their hands and crunch away at it. But we'll prove to you that snacks don't always have to be unhealthy and full of sugar with these child's play recipe ideas.
Fruit & Vegetables
So simple, yet so good. Most kids are happy with just a handful of berries, a banana or vegetable sticks. If you like, you can spice up the simple ingredients with natural yogurt to go with the fruit, or herb curd and hummus as a dip to go with the veggies.
Homemade granola bars
Most granola bars in the supermarket disguise themselves as super healthy, but in reality they are real sugar bombs. It's better here to simply make the bars yourself.
Healthy ice cream
Making water ice is not difficult at all. All you need is some sugar or a natural sugar substitute, (coconut) water, and fresh fruit. Push the homemade ice cream into your children's hands as they leave the front door, and suddenly there will be heavenly peace when they see the next ice cream parlor.
If you fly as a family, you pack as a family. It's up to you whether you pack your own carry-on backpack or small pull-on suitcase for your child or stow the items in your bags. The only important thing is that you have the right things with you. Then nothing can go wrong even on a long plane trip.
