Packing your spring baby bag
Spring, with all the fun, excitement and hope for summer that it brings, can also flare up seasonal allergies in those prone to them.
If your infant suffers from seasonal allergies, it's likely that you have noticed symptoms such as weepy eyes, a congested nose and perhaps some form of skin irritation.
These symptoms can be exacerbated when your baby is taken out into the elements and exposed to pollens and allergens through the air – but of course you want to spend spring enjoying the outdoors!
That's why you might want to pack a spring baby bag each time you take your child out and about, full with handy items for the season.
First aid kit
It's a good idea to pack a baby first aid kit in case of any spring time scrapes, bee stings or allergies. Include baby saline solution in case of allergy-related congestion, plasters, tweezers, antibacterial ointment and any other items you think might come in handy.
It's getting sunnier, so you want to protect your child from sun damage. Pack a sunhat and a breezy top that can cover your child's arms from the sun, and include some baby-safe sunscreen.
It can still be fairly rainy in spring and if your child decides to wander into a puddle of mud at some point, it's good to be prepared with some baby wipes to get the worst of it off their skin, clothing and shoes.
