Experience bringing little ones to games

Posted: Oct 28, 2016 7:04 AM

Hey just wondering if anyone has experience bringing little ones to games. We are bringing our 15 month year old son to his first game against Cuse. Just had some general questions like do any of the bathrooms have diaper changing stations? I never really looked for that stuff before. We have the grandparents sitting next to us and a tailgate at the front of the West End Zone to keep stuff at. Looking forward to another military game and my first home game of the year (was at Auburn).

The stadium has "family restrooms" located throughout the concourse that are spacious and all have changing stations. They are usually right next to the regular restrooms.

Please bring ear protection for the little ones. I'm serious. Please!

I have a 2 girls both under 4 and have brought them to games the last few years. Definitely bring some protection for their ears at that age. They do have family restrooms in the west endzone too. Enjoy!

A few points of advice

Posted: Oct 28, 2016 7:46 AM

The family restrooms are the way to go, but they don't have pads or "protectors" for the changing pads, and those can get a bit gross. So bring something to put down on top of it.

Bring lots of snacks, our kids pretty much ate the whole game and they're not normally big eaters, and bag check will give you some leniency on baby supplies, like baby bottles pre-filled with water (to add the packets of formula to). We did use a clear bag the game we brought our youngest to this season.

I know if you go in gate 1, they have stroller check, so I'd imagine they have it at other gates, and it's very worth it even if you don't need the stroller, cause you'll have it in the stadium in case you need to walk your child around for a bit.

Oh, and apologize to the fans in front of you beforehand. Our daughter earlier this year squeezed a pouch of barley/pears/something all over the seat in front of us, just before the nice fellow in that seat sat in it. All the fans around us are great and don't seem to mind getting bumped, kicked, etc a little during the game.

Thanks for the advice***

I have been bringing my kids to games since they were born. Best memories of my life.

My advice is to wait about 3 more years

then take him to a game. I tried it once when my son was 2 and he was too young to take to a game.

you to leave early. Regardless of the natural distractions (music, video board, crowd reactions) he is going to get bored. He doesn't have the attention span at 15 months (nonetheless 3 years) to be entertained that long.

Anyone that disagrees is lying to themselves.

Haha, excellent. Also, sorry about that.

But at least you have the upper hand. :)

I took my 4 year old to a game. It was awesome, except when

True story.

Need to have hearing protection for the noise and infant sun screen if daytime.

I'd imagine taking a 15-month-old infant to a college football game like this Saturday's, (especially at 8pm), would be about as fun as bringing a grandmother to heavy metal concert.

If reconsideration is off the table, good luck to you sir. And ditto all the sentiments about ear protection.
