Grocery shopping with a baby can be an adventure. It's an opportunity for your baby to explore, meet new people, and hang out with mama. Sometimes it can be an enjoyable experience, but other times your baby might have another agenda. Try following these simple guidelines to help ensure that you're in and out of the store quickly and without any mishaps. Before you know it, you'll be back home with the food you need and (with any luck) smiles on your faces.

Take Care of Business

Make sure your baby has a clean diaper before leaving home so that you can reduce the number of trips to the changing station while shopping.

Choose Your Time Wisely

When shopping with a baby, the time of day really does make a difference. Instead of attempting a quick trip to the store right before a nap or when she's hungry for lunch, head to the store when your baby is well-rested, well-fed, and in a good mood. Also, pay attention to the days and times your store is the busiest — such as right before dinner on weekdays or Saturday afternoon — and avoid shopping then.

Bring a Bag of T­ricks

Bring a pacifier or a toy with you in case your baby gets restless. Don't forget to talk to your baby as you move around the store — an engaging "conversation" is sometimes all your little one needs to keep happy and occupied.
