Hiking with a Baby Packing List: Everything You Need for Baby on a Day Hike

Hi! I am Adrianna and welcome to my blog. This is a dedicated space to help you get outside with your baby and onto the trail. I am an avid hiker in the Canadian Rockies and have hiked hundreds of trails with my babies. It is where I found healing postpartum and built a strong connection with each of my boys. I do have to pack a lot of items along with us so that I feel prepared for being in the backcountry of Alberta. We often get wild weather and storms can come out of nowhere. I always pack as if I were to get stranded somewhere. Some basic survival items are very important to me. My hikes can be a little longer and take up a whole day sometimes. Beyond the baby essentials my list above acts as helpful reference when in a rush an packing up your baby for a hike. Always try and pack the night before if you can.

Please note, I use affiliate links here and all the proceeds go to my Social Enterprise, Kids Who Explore. I am on a mission to get more moms and babies on the trail and more kids outside connected to nature. Your support means so much to me. Thank you in advance for supporting my dreams.

Here is what is my hiking carrier during the summer months:

I want you to experience hiking with your baby and have compiled my list to help you feel confident on the trail. Please always feel free to ask me anything. I host weekly hikes in the Calgary area and have helped moms get back on the trail after birth. I have shared hundreds of videos on social media in hopes that it reaches moms that need to find themselves on the trail again. Please feel free to download my list here and put it in your hiking pack so that you never have to worry about knowing what to bring along again. You don't need to purchase everything on this list. You can borrow from a friend or hike with other moms that are willing to share items too. I do a lot of solo hiking with the kids and have been collecting my gear since I found out I was pregnant with my first.

I hope this hiking list helps you and that you take it on many hikes with you! I would love to hear from you if it has helped you out. Thank you for being here!
