This thread is to address the much overlooked Baby Bug Out Bag


I am sure there are ATS mothers and fathers out there so we need to come together on what to put into a BBOB.

I would start with a bag.

Dadgear BBOB



A sleeping bag stored in your Bug out location preferably.


gotta make sure your child is dressed for the terrain.





you may need to move fast so carrying you child may be the smartest move.




if you are stocking up of food and water another overlooked supply is usually toilet paper but those rolls are not really easy to move store or carry efficiently ..

luckily I have stocked up on baby wipes everyone loves baby wipes and they are easily stored or carried you get much more use out of them they are sanitary and can clean anything off from car grease to baby poop, and if anyone has ever been without a shower you know baby wipes will safe your armpits day.




so thats a start to your Baby Bug Out Bag.

I am anxious to see all your ideas to this aspect of baby survival in a SHTF scenario.

cloth dippers would probably be better, as they can be reused and as such you need less of them which also conserves space. We have been putting together our BOBs (adult) but we're also stocking up on things for the nieces/nephew.

I am just picturing SHTF scenario 20 years from now and and a person yelling at their near 30 year old son to "Get in the damn bag, this is what I bought it for!"

Hmmm, not too sure about the whole sleeping bag deal. We have always been of the opinion that it makes much more sense to have good quality wool blankets. Sleeping bags are pretty one-dimensional, and become mostly useless in wet conditions. A wool blanket can be used in many different ways by anyone in the family, and remains good for heat retention even when very wet. They are naturally water resistant, and are good for huddling together to share body warmth.

Never have things in your BOB that are single use items. Remember, you have to carry that thing!

Peace

Very good point! we all have wool sweaters for camping and wool blankets for our horses even when wet wool will keep you warm.

yes i forgot to mention that i meant to put it after the baby wipes. cloth diapers are a must.

also i have heard native Americans used cotton from cottonwood trees straw and soft skin of animals for diapers I dont remember the animal i think it was raccoon skin or something? anything with short soft fur would work i imagine.

How about taking your kid and your bug out bags and try living with just that for about 2 months in the wilderness with no means of help. This will give you a good idea of what you will need to acutally survive this situation. You might be surprised how tough it's going to be when you have to pull your kids tooth or something serious like if they fall and break a bone.

I'm sure most would not be able to survive this no matter how good you think you've prepared. People get some items they think they will need and consider themselves prepared for very serious situations and I find it rather sad.

I somewhat agree I think the best preparation is planning and preparing knowledge of how to survive is how you will survive...
our ancestors did it for thousands of years with no help from white mans technology so it can be done.

Very few people have the knowledge, skill, and are in well enough physical shape to set off for the deep wilderness and become self suffficient. Having a bag of supplies and the latest book authored by Bear Grylls will not be enough.

The baby sleeping bag is cute but for warmth sake wouldn't the baby sleep with you? I have older children and in their bag I have the children's tylenol and tummy medicine. With a baby BOB I would say don't forget the A&D unless you have vaseline in your bag.

You are very correct. I will admit that I am new to this whole way of thinking and living. Everything that is purchased is tested. I am still trying to perfect my flint and steel fire starter. It looks easier then it is. I really don't see myself as becoming 100% self sufficient but learning and sharing ideas to move in that direction is extremely helpful.

No offense but what would you do if you lost all of your supplies somehow? What would you use for warmth or a substitute for your baby tylenol? You won't have vaseline forever so what do you use once that's used up or lost?

These are things people don't think about.

When the infrastructure goes down, the most valuable things in your BOB will be antibiotics and other medicines.

All the knives, guns, weapons and high tech gear won't mean SQUAT; because that's all you will be doing because of dysentery and eventually so dehydrated that you will have no strength to even keep the most basic survival skills intact.

If you ain't prepared medically.............you ain't prepared! Infection will be much more of an enemy than the roving bands of zombies.

Very good point and anyone who rely's on medication for serious health issues will have 0 chance of survival. Also those who are very frail will have a very difficult time.

I'm often sent out to do research way out in the middle of nowhere and I can say from experience that the most troublesome thing I ever have to deal with is staying dry. We always are well prepared but it seems no matter how much stuff you have it is just extremely hard to stay dry.

I'm never out for more than a week or two but I can imagine this being a major concern for an extended stay.

Isn't being somewhat prepared better than nothing? I'd like to think that being prepared, to a certain extent, is going to up my chances of survival somewhat. Besides, people are not quite as dumb as they look. Also, depending on the disaster, no amount of preparation or training or skill set is gonna save us.....

youre right about that one thats y I know my Vet. very well and if it came down to it I vaccinate my horses, its not hard to figure out the right dosage per weight for a human. most antibiotics can be made from plant you just need to grow the right ones and prepare them correctly no prob there like i said it can be done life is hard enough its all how you look at it.
