Usage: Babies love having a backpack or bag to carry a few of their favorite treasures. Giving baby a backpack to carry when you take them out often makes them feel more comfortable because they feel like they have a job to do. You can incorporate the backpack sign when getting ready for an outing by asking  them to bring their backpack. During the trip you can ask baby to help you by getting something from their backpack, or to put some little souvenir you picked up into their backpack for safe storage.
