Fun Things To Do in Seattle With a Baby
Here are some things to do with a baby in Seattle:
The Zoo is full of exotic sounds and sights. It’s an intriguing place for babies and parents, too. It’s fast-paced and exciting yet calming at the same time. For most, it takes about four-plus hours to explore the whole zoo, so prepare for a long afternoon. When visiting the zoo with a baby it’s usually best to bring a stroller along for your baby and your things, too. For more time bonding and interacting with your baby, bring a baby carrier, too.
The Tushbaby is a hip seat carrier designed for making memories. It straps on high and tight on the waist with a plush hip seat. Your baby can sit on the plush hip seat in one of the four carrying positions as you support them with one or both arms. Take advantage of the ability to comfortably hold your baby to point, laugh, and touch them as you explore the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle together. These memories will last a lifetime.
Watching your baby discover things they love is exciting as a parent. Providing your baby with safe places to discover can help promote development and inspire curiosity. The Seattle Children’s Museum features exhibits such as Transit, where kids can learn about the importance of public transportation, and Orca Cove designed for kids ages 0-3 years of age (just like the Tushbaby). When visiting the Seattle Children’s Museum, it can be helpful to have your hands free so you’re ready to plan and interact with your baby.
From The Pack, our fashionable fanny pack, to the Tushbaby hip seat carrier with storage pockets, Tushbaby offers practical and safe baby products that can enhance any adventure. During your day at the Seattle Children’s Museum, chances are your baby will want to go from being carried to put down often. The Tushbaby makes that transition seamless, as there are no complicated straps restricting your baby. The Snug Attachment also makes it easy to go hands-free with your Tushbaby while still being able to interact with your baby and keep them close.
A trip to T-Mobile Park to watch the Seattle Mariners play might be a double win for you and your baby. For sports-loving families, a day at the ballpark can equal tons of fun. As you expose your baby to things the family loves, it’s important to remember that your baby is delicate. Pack along ear protection and other essentials to keep your baby safe and comfortable, as you see fit. While T-Mobile Park allows strollers, it can be difficult and stressful to wheel a stroller around such a crowded place.
Babywearing at the ballpark is a game-changer. The Tushbaby makes it easy to sit or stand while babywearing, plus it can offer breastfeeding support. With five storage pockets, you can keep some necessities like a pacifier, nursing cover, or our foldable changing pad on hand. The Tushbaby requires the wearer to support the baby with one or both hands, which can be ideal for interacting and bonding with baby, but we have a hands-free option, too. The Snug attachment (which can fit in one of the storage pockets), offers hands-free babywearing with the Tushbaby. Hands-free babywearing at the Mariner’s Game is ideal during naptime, navigating the crowd, or loading up on concessions.
A historical landmark, Volunteer Park was originally purchased in 1876 from a sawmill engineer. By 1912, the park had transformed with walking paths, lawns, lily ponds, a music pavilion, and more. The park features an indoor toddler play area for children under the age of 5, boat rentals, picnic tables, and more. For a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of sights to see, Volunteer Park is a popular attraction for families visiting Seattle.
With a wide variety of things to do, it can be ideal for families with more than one baby. With so much ground to cover, you’ll probably want to bring your stroller along. However, you might not be able to or want to take it everywhere, so bringing a baby carrier along is smart. The Tushbaby hip seat carrier can fold up for easy storage, making it ideal for traveling. Our mini wearable crossbody diaper bag, The Pack, can also be the perfect addition for exploring Volunteer Park. Simply load it up, strap it on, and do what you do best, Mom (or Dad). It can allow you to keep essentials close without the thought or distraction of carrying a bag.
Riding the ferry in Seattle is a scenic and affordable water experience that can serve as a gateway to visit more places near Seattle. However, the Seattle ferry can also serve as a relaxing way to take in breathtaking views, the city skyline or surrounding mountain views. Some babies find the motion of the ferry to be calming. Bringing a baby on a ferry is safe as long as the rules are followed. You may be doing quite a bit of time sitting. When you use the Tushbaby hip seat carrier, it’s easy to sit or stand while wearing the carrier (and baby, too). T
he Tushbaby is an open-face carrier without complicated straps. To use it, simply strap it on high and tight above the hip and place the baby on the plush hip seat. Switch up carrying positions or use the Tushbaby for breastfeeding support. If baby wants out of the carrier, just lift them off, and if you choose, you can continue to wear the carrier (and store your things in it too).
