I generally gauge the quality of baby outdoor gear by the amount of noise Sonny makes. If he’s loud and angry, it sucks. If he’s quiet and content, it’s a huge thumbs up. And happily the Isbjörn Cozy fits into the second category.
The Little Life Arc 2 travel cot trebles up as a lightweight portable bed, convenient baby day prison, and outdoor sun shield, with the added bonus that it packs down into a small backpack for easy transportation. A 3-in-1 masterpiece!
If your baby still isn’t walking but loves being outside on cold days, Stonz booties are perfect for keeping their feet warm on winter adventures.
We’ve spent hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds on expensive toys and gear to entertain Sonny in the nine months since he was born. But what does he love most? This crappy cardboard box, of course.
I found out quickly this winter that cold ears = unhappy baby. Which is why this daft beanie hat from Isbjörn of Sweden has been an invaluable addition to Sonny’s outdoor wardrobe.
Stable, safe and packed with a mind-boggling number of useful features, the Osprey Poco AG lets us walk longer distances and explore more exciting places. And does the handy job of sending Sonny to sleep!
For a spring baby who spent his first six months enjoying glorious warm weather, the chilly autumn temperatures were a shock for Sonny. So this Spotty Otter down suit is a lifesaver!
A lovely addition to our family garden and packs down small enough to take on almost every adventure, the Grand Trunk Double Parachute hammock is an absolute bargain for outdoorsy families.
I’ve always considered anything over £100 to be expensive, but the Mountain Buggy Juno baby carrier is an absolute bargain for active dads.
For a terrified dad-to-be like me, this book has been more useful than all of the NHS classes, midwife appointments and NCT courses put together. Rob Kemp, you’re my hero!
