Taking a Baby to the Park – Part 2

Welcome back to Part 2 of taking a baby to the park. I have a few more tricks to make your visit to Disneyland with a baby just a little smoother.

Take advantage of the baby center

Look for this symbol on your park map.

Every Disney park has a baby center. It has changing tables, high chairs, a toddler sized toilet, and even a rocking chair behind a curtain so you can breastfeed your baby privately. They also have a bunch of supplies you may have forgotten that you can purchase: baby food, diapers, wipes, sunscreen, etc. It’s a nice place to give your baby some quiet time. Next time you’re in the park, go in and see. They are great!

Bring a few different outfits

You always want to have an extra outfit in case of spit ups or blow-outs. You’ll also want to have warmer clothes in case it rains or gets cold. While we were there it was a nice 75-80 degrees, but by 7 at night it was getting pretty chilly. It was nice to have an extra pair of clothes to keep her little legs warm. Of course, you could always buy clothes in the park if needed, but it’s nice not to have to spend extra money just to keep baby warm.

Use Binky clips to attach toys to the stroller so they don’t drop out

Teething rings and little toys are great to keep baby entertained. If you aren’t careful though, the toy will get dropped and lost. So we came up with a great idea to keep the toys from falling on the ground. We bought a few binky clips and attached it to some of her favorite toys. We just clipped them right on her or the stroller and it worked perfect. The toys never fell on the ground and were always within her reach.

Ask a cast member about how your baby should be seated

Different rides have different rules on where the baby needs to sit. On some rides like Astro Orbiter and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin, baby has to sit on the actual seat. Other rides let you hold the baby or keep them in a carrier. The cast member will always let you know if there are specific rules, but it’s nice to ask so you aren’t rushing to get the baby out of the carrier while holding up the line.
