Hiking with a baby or toddler is an excellent way to spend time together, to enjoy nature and slow down. It has so many benefits for both parents and children. Toddlers will love exploring every rock or bug on short toddler hikes. Babies will be content to see the world as they are snuggled up to mom or dad.
As parents who started hiking with a baby when our first was only 6-8 weeks old, we can say with confidence that getting out in nature with your baby makes for wonderful experiences. Not only do you get the benefits of being out in the fresh air and in nature, but there are so many more reasons why you should be out hiking with your baby.
If you’ve now entered the toddler stage, things are about to get very different. Hiking with a baby might seem more complicated with the feeding and diaper changes, but your baby is going to be a lot more content to be carried for longer periods of time during the hike. You’ll probably even find it easier to get a nap on the go while hiking with babies.
Hiking is an incredible way to see the world and it’s something you can still do when traveling with your baby. Whether you are exploring locally or traveling internationally, hiking with a baby is a great way to get outside. With a little practice a little preparation and the right hiking gear, you’ll be able to explore amazing mountain trails and national parks around the world with your baby.

A beach vacation with a baby is perfect for the whole family. Tired parents will love the relaxing tropical scenery of the beach, while babies will love playing in the sand and water! But the sun is powerful in the tropics and there is rarely shade on the beach, so you’ll need to take extra steps to protect your baby from the sun.
Having the right gear is essential to keeping your baby safe in the tropical sun. To protect your baby from the sun, you’ll need the right baby beach clothing, approved baby sunblock and a sun shade for babies to keep your baby cool in the sun.
