What the pandemic of COVID-19 has taught us all is that we have to be extra mindful and extra hygienic. Ever since the first phase of Movement Control Order (MCO) was introduced on March 18, 2020, our daily lives had not been the same and since then the term the new normal was widely used. Although the number of cases in our country subsides day by day, we should not take it lightly but to continue following the guidelines provided by our Health Ministry, especially when we have a child in our care. So here I will line up the 5 Essentials Items for The #NewNorm that you should have to take on-the-go with you and your child.

The very #1 item that you must have with you is disposable face masks. At Babydash, we have a 3-ply disposable face masks specially made for children age 4-12 years old from Autumnz. The mask is made from soft and breathable material that is comfortable to wear — so your child would not feel stuffy in it! Get a box or two by clicking here.

Of course water and soap are the best combo for clean hands, but they are not always accessible any time. Hence, the #2 best option is to clean your hands with a hand sanitizer. I know using a lot of anti-bacterial agents can cause dryness to your skin, however the hand sanitizer from Chomel would not as it has Vitamin E to help moisturize your hands! And it is safe to be used by your child too due to its plant-based ingredients. Click here to purchase one on Babydash.

The #3 item that is essential to bring on your day out is an anti-bacterial surface cleaner! Spritz and wipe the germs and bacteria off the surfaces of the baby’s high chair at any restaurants before you place your baby in. This one from Buds is formulated with plant-based ingredients and definitely is safe for your entire family to use. It is handy to take with you due to its compact size.

Wipes are great when you want to be quick or in a rush. The #4 essential item is an anti-bacterial wipes. Just like a surface cleaner, wipes work just the same! You can wipe anything off with a single sheet. This pack of wipes from CareMo is alcohol free and has aloe vera and vitamin E to moisturize and soothe the skin. It is very convenient and excellent to use anywhere at any time. Just click here to buy a pack on Babydash.

Lastly, #5 essential item to have is a diaper bag! You need a diaper bag to store all the essentials above, parents! The one from Skip Hop is extremely practical to go about with as it has 10 pockets to store all your baby’s essentials, yours and your worries in it 😆 The bag comes with a cushioned changing pad — a great thing to have at times like this!
