It seems the smaller they are the more they need, it can be easy to forget something. Here is a list of our must haves for when you are traveling with baby this summer.


Carry-On/Easily Accessible

Here are the things you need to have on hand while you are traveling:

Diapers (1 for every hour and a few extras)

Gripe Water (keep on hand for any tummy troubles that may arise while traveling)


Diaper Cream

Bags for dirty diapers and soiled clothes

Full change of clothes

Light weight blankets

Fever reducer/pain reliever

Formula and spare bottles if formula feeding

Spare pacifiers

Pacifier clip

Small snacks if baby is eating solids


Small toys

Copy of baby’s birth certificate (never needed it but like to have when flying with baby)


Remember to bring along for the trip:

Diapers, Wipes and Diaper Cream

Clothes (pack 2 outfits per day if you will not be doing laundry while away from home)
