Traveling with Baby


For many families, Spring Break is fast approaching so we are talking about traveling with kids this week. Today, specifically, traveling with an infant.

Those who have been eye-ball deep in the infant stage know that you should plan for a lot of shtuff. As the saying goes, the younger the baby the more stuff you need to survive. You need something to be hands-free (baby carrier), you need a safe place to put them to nap/sleep (pack n play), you need to bring diapers, wipes, formula, pump stuff, extra clothes (because blow outs)…the list can be endless.

But here is my list that I’ve found doable, whether a month-long trip overseas to the weekend excursion a few hours away. The only difference for longer trips is you would need more disposables (such as diapers and wipes) and plan to do laundry.

• First Aid Kit: You never know when babies will get sick. And because they can’t verbally tell you what’s going on I include a lot of things in my first aid kit that you probably won’t need with an older child. Here is what I pack and it all goes into a little zippered bag: 1.Braun No-touch thermometer 2.Oximeter 3.Tylenol + syringes 4.Benedryl 5.Saline nose spray 6.Nose Frida 7. Band-aids 8.spray Neosporin 9.antiseptic cleaner 10.Babyganics teething pods 11.Tigerbalm 12. gas drops

• Baby toiletry kit: 1.Mustela Foaming wash 2.Mustela baby lotion 3.Eucerin eczema lotion 4.Mineral-based sunscreen 5.Sun hat 6.Babyganics Bug spray wipes.

• Diapers and wipes . • Nuna Car seat + base • Uppababy Vista Stroller • Joovy Babasling and Babybjorn Mini baby carriers • Chicco Pack ‘n Play • Inflatable My Breastfriend travel breastfeeding pillow • High Chair Cover • Clothes – Baby A is still in the blowout and slobber stage, so I plan for about 8 outfit changes a day. Luckily his clothes are small so they don’t take up too much room! • Outerwear

And then any additional items your unique baby will need - lovey, pacifiers, etc.

Wishing you safe and peaceful travels.
