Spring Is Here! This Baby Gear'll Help You Get Outside + Enjoy the Weather

The arrival of spring means warmer weather, flowers blooming and more time to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air. Whether you’re going to the park, taking a walk or having a picnic, bringing along the right baby gear makes all the difference. You’ll need a spot to hang out, something to carry all the things, plus sun protection (hello baby sunnies).

From our favorite outdoor blanket to a portable sound machine, here’s everything you’ll need to enjoy a springtime day out with your baby.

Step one of any spring outing to the park or beach: find a place to sit. But no worries about damp grass, sand or dirt when you’ve got a Little Unicorn Outdoor Blanket. It’s water resistant, machine washable and folds up in a compact bundle with a strap for easy carrying. It also comes in a few different sizes and colors so you can find the best fit for your family (and style).

More sun outside means needing more shade for baby. Portable shady spots like this playard and canopy from Baby Delight help protect your little one’s sensitive skin and give them their own special spot to hang out.

Even if you already have a stroller, a wagon is a fun option to consider for casual springtime strolls, especially if you have multiple kiddos or a play date. A newer version of Veer’s All Terrain wagon, the Cruiser City Veer features a more intuitive stroller-like push so it’s great for navigating smaller spaces but it can still tackle any terrain. You can customize it with a ton of accessories (sold separately) and it’s big enough to fit both your little one and your picnic or beach gear.

This tote just screams spring and we love how much space there is to pack all of the essentials you need for a day out and about with your baby. It has a bunch of organizational features, including two bottle pockets and a wipes compartment. And it’s made out of a durable water-resistant material that’ll hold up to dirt, sand and tanbark.

Don’t let naptime stop you from enjoying the nice weather! This little sound machine is perfect for taking on the go.

As the weather starts to warm up a bit, you’ll want a carrier that has good airflow and keeps baby cool. The mesh material of this carrier from Ergobaby is lightweight, breathable and comfortable enough for long walks in the fresh air.

Don’t forget the snacks! No springtime outing is complete without a few munchies, and a portable snack set can make serving and clean up a breeze. Whether you’ve got a formula drinker or your kiddo is onto solid food, the stackable cups in this set can store everything from formula powder to cereal bits to fresh fruits and veggies. The bowl and spoon make it easy to pack purees for a picnic, and the cup transitions from a sippy to a straw in one motion.

Whether your baby is sitting up independently or still needs some support, this seat comes in handy for park playdates and picnics. It’s a camping-style chair that has three different seating configurations so they can use it from three months up to 65 pounds. A detachable canopy helps keep them out of the sun and the detachable tray is perfect when it’s time for a snack. Plus it comes in a ton of fun colors.

Nicer weather means more time outside and we love this trike for family walks (especially if you’ve got a toddler who doesn’t love stroller rides). With different modes of riding, your baby can enjoy this trike from six months to five years old. The seat is reversible for the youngest riders and has a three-position recline for comfort. The push handle is height adjustable and features an adult footbrake for added safety. And the UPF 50 canopy offers plenty of shade and protection from the sun. It folds up super compactly for lugging around and turns into a standalone trike when they’re old enough for solo rides.
