Fresh air, exercise, serenity… and sippy cups?? Getting outdoors with children requires a bit more preparation than the pre-child days of strapping on boots for a spontaneous hike (nothing like a hungry toddler to snap you out of zen mode!) But have no fear, jujube bags will keep you calm and hiking on with kids of all ages!
Bags for Hiking with Babies
Where my babywearing mamas at?? When it comes to hiking with infants babywearing is going to be your go-to (unless you’re facing a well-groomed, flat trail that a jogging stroller could manage!) With infants this usually means a front-carry, which means backpacks are going to be your best friend!
