Five Essential Items When Out & About with a Toddler this Winter

Posted by Pottiagogo on

Now that winter is here and the temperatures are dropping, you may start to wonder how you might adapt when you are on the go with your toddler. Of course, some of the essentials never change, but there are some items that you might want to chuck in your bag, pram or car boot, before you set off for the day. 

Here are some of the essential items you won’t want to be without, when out and about with your toddler this winter.

  1. Leak-Proof Cups

It’s always a good idea to have leak-proof cups, particularly if you’re on the go with your toddler. It’s important to make sure that your kids are staying properly hydrated throughout the day, but it goes without saying, toddlers have a habit of spilling drinks, so ensuring there are no leaks is important. That being said, during the chilly winter months, leak-proof cups are even more essential to ensure your little one’s clothes aren’t left soaking wet.

  1. Toddler Carrier or Lightweight Stroller

If you’re going to be heading out somewhere where you need to be walking a lot or if you’re dedicated to keeping your steps during the winter months, it’s important to have a toddler carrier or even a lightweight stroller for young children that you can take with you. That way, you can carry your toddler on your back or front, in a safe and easy way. Or simply push them, if they’re too large to be carried that way. Either way, it can help keep you and your little one comfy on the go.

  1. Pottiagogo Travel Potty

No matter what time of year it is, it’s a good idea to have a Pottiagogo Travel Potty that you can take with you if you’re in the process of potty training your children. Potty training can be tough when you’re on the go, and you don’t want to have all your progress lost when you’re away from home. 

That’s why it makes sense to have a portable Pottiagogo Travel Potty that you can take with you wherever you go. In the current climate, it also saves you having to hunt for an open public toilet when your little one is desperate to go, and prevents stress in terms of the cleanliness of the public toilet, so it really is a win-win to have one handy!

  1. Convenient Sterile Feeding Bottle

It can be a real struggle trying to keep a bottle sterile for your baby whilst on the go. It is not uncommon to feel nervous about giving your baby the bottle you have packed for them, due to the chance it may have picked up germs on your journey. Therefore, it goes without saying that a convenient sterile feeding bottle is a must-have for any parent on the go. 

Thanks to Steribottle, you can feed your baby in confidence knowing that their BPA free bottles are sterile and ready for use whenever and wherever you need to feed your baby, plus, like our Pottiagogo potty liners they are biodegradable and therefore kinder to the environment.

  1. Plenty of Extra Layers

Finally, you should think about how you can keep your kids warm and properly dressed. Sometimes, when you leave the house it might not seem particularly cold, but it is best to be prepared and armed with extra layers for your kids that you can pull out and put on them if the temperature starts to plummet.

This winter, if you try to tick off this winter essentials checklist before an adventurous day with your little one, it should help to keep you and your child happy and cosy through the chilly months.
