How To Leave The House With A New Baby And A Toddler

Hi friends! Today’s topic has been a much requested one since we’ve been home with our newborn baby – we’ve gone out several times a week (even up to once a day) since she was 2 days old!

Plus Disneyland is my favorite of the two parks due to the amount of rides, character appearances, and things to do/eat!

I’ll be doing more posts in the next few months about what to pack for a day at Disneyland, snacks to take, and perfect spots to hangout for nursing or to cool down on hot days. Today, I wanted to share some of the best tips and tricks I’ve discovered since hitting up the parks with a baby in tow! Read below for some of the best tips on conquering Disneyland with babies!
