Toddler’s Checklist: How to Pack for Your Baby’s Travel Bag2 min read
For new mommies, the process of packing for their newborn is a bit of a daunting task. It is highly unlikely that you are a new mother and you haven’t been failed in the packing process. After a couple of falls, only then new mothers are able to learn the basics of packing. The one pro tip to keep in mind is to pack everything that you can fit inside your baby’s bag. I know, it sounds crazy, but the needs of babies are even crazier and we don’t want you to get all discombobulated by the end of your journey. To keep all the fun of your travel plan going, follow some of our tips mentioned down below.
Let us start off from the basics. When you have babies around, accidents happen. And by that we mean you never know when your baby’s diaper blows off and you need to change the outfit all over again. Keeping that in mind, it is essential to always keep an extra pair of clothes. If you have two outfits in mind, take three. If you are going with one swimsuit, better to pack two. Same goes for sweaters, pajamas, socks, and baby’s underwear or diaper covers.
Babies have a whole range of diaper-related things that are crucial in every way. So, in your baby’s travel bag you must keep things like diapers as many as you can keep, box of wipes, hand sanitizer, sealable plastic bags, diaper cream, rash cream, and disposable changing pads. Changing pads are important because you never know where you are when your baby needs changing. So, if you are hitting a road, changing pads will be a great help.
Since we are dealing with our little ones here, every option matters. Especially if you are going on a long trip, you will definitely need baby gear. So depending on your preference and situation you are going to be in, pick a stroller, baby car seat, teething ring, baby carrier, pacifier hooks, inflatable infant pool and baby monitor. Of course, you don’t need to get all of these on board if you have a short tour prepared or if you are not going anywhere near the beach. Whatever you pick, you must choose wisely.
If you are going someplace cold and you don’t want to get in the risk of not finding enough bedding for your baby at the hotel then you should take travel crib sheets, swaddle blankets, breathable blankets for shading and travel crib.
Also, kids are usually more prone to getting sick than us. So, just to be on the safe side, take a little bit of medicine that you can treat your baby with in case of any sickness.
