Things to Bring for Baby Travel
Little ones require lots of stuff. It’s true at home and when traveling. But if you start packing for your baby or toddler with a checklist, you can make sure you’ve got everything you need and can achieve the peace of mind a getaway should bring. Get started the below checklist.
For the Diaper Bag
Diapers. Bring plenty. A few extras won’t weigh the bag
down too much, and you don’t want to run the risk of
not being able to easily find the size and brand you want.
Wipes. They’re great for cleaning lots of stuff, like messy
faces and handles of shopping carts, etc.
Plastic or Zip-Lock bags. Great for storing soiled diapers
when a trash can is not handy. Also helpful for storing
used, unwashed food containers and messy clothing.
Hand sanitizer. A life-saver when you can’t get to a sink.
Diaper rash cream. Just be aware that if you’re flying,
you’ll need to include this in your bag of zip-locked items
when traveling through security.
Extra clothing. We’re talking babies and toddlers here.
Messes happen. Enough said.
Bottles/Sippy cups. Again, if you are going to travel
through airport security, remember to empty these before
you pass through.
Sunscreen/Sunhat. Sunscreen is not recommended for
children under 6 months old, so make sure you have a
sunhat on hand for the youngest of travelers.
Medications. Make sure these are in your carry-on in the
event that you’re flying and lose your luggage.
Emergency Information. If you have a cell phone, program
in your pediatrician’s name and number on top of carry-
ing it on a piece of paper or business card with you. That
way, you’re covered in case one of the two is lost.
