Must Pack Items In A Baby Travel Bag

Going on a trip with your baby can make parents want to pull their hair out. It can be hard to even know where to start! You’ll want to read this.

First Aid Kit

Having a travel First Aid kit is a must. Little ones like to explore the world around them which means cuts and scrapes are bound to happen. You will need:

  1. Prescribed Medications (antibiotics or epi-pens)
  2. Allergy Relief (if necessary)
  3. Boogie Wipes (these work great for cleaning up crusty noses and leftover baby food)
  4. Anti-itch cream
  5. Bug Spray
  6. Sunscreen
  7. Tweezers (for any splinters)
  8. Band-aids
  9. Neosporn (Neo to-go works best, it just sprays on!)
  10. Thermometer (for babies, the pacifier thermometers work great!)
  11. Pain Reliever/Fever Reducer (both adult and infant)

 

Carrier or Stroller

For babies under four months old it might be easier on you to bring a baby carrier. These seem to be easier for parents because of the infant car seat and babies that young can’t sit up on their own in strollers. Bringing the stroller with the infant car seat is a lot more difficult than strapping your baby on your back or chest!

 

Tiny Baby Toiletries

Packing toiletries for your baby can make parents scatterbrained. These should be travel sized to save room for other items. These can be separated into two categories, changing and bathing.

Changing

  1. Diapers, diapers, and more diapers. Just when you think you have enough, add a few more.
  2. Wipes
  3. Diaper rash cream

Bathing

  1. Nighttime and regular baby body wash. The nighttime can make babies calm and ready for bed.
  2. Baby Shampoo
  3. Baby comb, if your baby has enough hair!
  4. Baby nail clippers (scared to do this? See how to trim your baby’s fingernails!)
  5. Washcloths (2-3 per day)
  6. Hooded towels (1 per day)

You should double these for the house and the diaper bag!

 

Clothes, Clothes, and More Clothes

Packing extra clothes can be messy, but putting whole outfits (top, bottom, and socks) in a gallon size ziplock bag will make it easier to grab and go! This will also make sure the clothes don’t get wet or sticky if a bottle of body wash or shampoo explodes!

Blankets

Blankets are the one item we think about bringing for car rides, but also the most commonly forgotten! These make car rides comfortable and somewhat bearable. These are also good for picnicking as a family outside!

 

A New Toy

Having a new toy can distract your little one on long car rides or from being scared on an airplane. The new toy can also be incentive to being good before and on the trip! Also, going on long trips with a little one is scary for them. Having a travel buddy can provide a sort of comfort for your little one on your trip. Snuggin makes a great companion to help comfort your baby on a long trip!

Portable Crib

Unless you’re going to a grandparent’s house with a crib, it is best to bring a pack and play for sleeping and/or playing. This will ensure a safe place for your baby to sleep and play, especially if there is hardwood floors you don’t want your child to walk on or a pet that makes you uncomfortable. This can also serve as playtime outside if the weather permits!

 

Depending on where you’re going and for how long will determine how much of each item you’ll need. You might also need to ditch some items and replace them with others. For example, the sunscreen might need to be replaced with three winter jackets!

 

Now that you know what you need to travel with infants, learnĀ how to travel with infants!
