9. Blanket Benefits: Baby can nap comfortably, toys are easier to keep track of, wet grass is a little less wet, snack-time consists of food you've prepared rather than grass, sticks or leaves.
10. Sometimes More Is More : However many diapers you think you need for the day, add one more. Load up on baby wipes as well. If you've ever been out with your baby and been completely diaper-less or baby wipe-less you can absolutely appreciate this last tip. Been there, done that, won't do it again.
