The first outing can be quite intimidating and scary for new mothers. What can you do to make it easier?
  • Right timing: its best to travel after a feed and nappy change.
  • Pack well: see What’s in a bag?
  • Be realistic: don’t plan a long trip away from home. Stick to familiar places close to home.
  • Baby-friendly environments: if you plan to go shopping, go to a centre with baby changing and feeding facilities. Ask other mothers for advice.
  • Where’s that dummy? To spare yourself from scratching around for a dummy while you are driving, fasten his/her dummy with a dummy chain.
