For a family with a baby/toddler, it is good for the parents/caregiver to know what to prepare for a baby/toddler whenever we will bring them out. If you have a domestic helper, you should give her a checklist about what to prepare for baby/ toddler(Of course you can add/deduce some items according to different family needs), do not assume they know what to prepare especially if they are new to your family:
Milk powder, Milk bottle, +/- hot water (for bottle feeding baby)
Breastfeeding towel(for breastfeeding baby)
Water bottle with water
Snacks, +/-baby food & bowl, spoon, fork (for babies above 6 months)
Small towels(for putting on the back/ dry the sweat/ feeding, number of towels depends on how long you will go out)
Diapers(it’s always safe to bring 1 or 2 extra diapers)
Tissue wipes(without alcohol)
vaseline/ baby powder(for buttock)
A set of clothes(in case baby wet the clothes or vomit)
Extra pants/disposable pants(for toddlers during toilet training period)
plastic bag(for wet clothes)
blanket/ jacket(to keep baby/ toddlers warm in air conditioned area)
1-2 baby toys
Which bag to use to put all these things
In summer, skin protection for baby and toddlers is important, too.
+/-Baby cap or hat
Sunblock lotion(for baby)
umbrella(for sunblock or rainy day)
+/- fan/ electric fan
Anti-mosquito/anti-insect repellent/spray/ointment(for baby)
If you have a helper, when she will need to go out with you and the kid, or enjoy her holidays, please teach her to bring her HKID card, mobile(with battery and load), wallet, a bottle of water, a jacket, umbrella for herself, too.
I hope parents, baby/toddler and helper enjoy going out in summer.
