Tips On Traveling With A Baby/Toddler || Series 4 – Packing Your Bags

Tips On Traveling With A Baby/Toddler || Series 4 – Packing Your Bags

What to pack, how much to pack and where to pack it. Obviously this depends on where you are traveling to and for how long so I cannot give you the perfect list. I can, however, give you a list of the items that I always bring with me when traveling with Noah. What may also be helpful is to show you exactly what lives in my nappy bag when going on long or short plane rides. Please let me know in comments if there are items that you can’t live without when traveling with your babe, which you don’t see on my list. I’d love to hear from you!

A few items I always bring with me when traveling

The Ergobaby 360 carrier, wipes, nail clippers, Qtips for babies, infant toothbrush, thermometer, ibuprofen, paracetamol, teething gel, nose sucker, baby soap, baby moisturizer, a couple Weetabix cereal ovals for the first few breakfasts, fruit/veggies puree pouches, snacks, straw sippy cup, sunscreen, a hat, a few toys, a book, his teddy, a large muslin (I like Aden & Anais), a bottle for milk, sleeping bag, music speaker with iPod + playlist

What lives in my travel nappy bag (Infant – 12 months)

-       Pacifiers x2

-       Pacifier string

-       Wet wipes

-       Nappies (1 for every 3-4 hours)

-       Plastic bags for diaper disposal

-       Bum cream

-       Hand sanitizer

-       x2 change of clothes for baby (Bonds Wondersuits are all I pack for Noah when traveling - as pj's pr daytime travel. They zip open from the top and bottom and are just so convenient and comfortable)
