Parents of newborns find traveling with their little ones to be a major inconvenience which is why they need a baby checklist. This is not surprising, as a child’s things can be so overwhelming. Can you imagine how difficult it would be for parents like you to pack their baby’s things, given the large number of clothes, diapers, bottles and wipes that babies need? But there are times when traveling with a child cannot be avoided. You can minimize the chances of forgetting an important item by keeping a checklist for infants for traveling. Likewise, you can ensure a more comfortable journey for your little one if you bring the right pieces of travel gear.
But before packing your baby’s things, make sure your essentials first. Bring cash or credit, debit and ATM cards – you don’t want to be found penniless while traveling. Don’t forget your passports or, if driving, your license. The same applies to health and travel insurance documents and airline tickets. Keep your address or address book, as well as your hotel or car reservation numbers.
Pack lots of clothes because you don’t want to be surprised that you need a pair or two on the street. Assign two to three outfits per day, plus an extra. Bring a sweater or jacket to warm your baby when you go to cooler weather.
How many nappies do you need to bring? In order to have enough during the entire trip, assign a diaper for every hour that you will be on the road. You could also bring more in case your flight is delayed.
Bring disposable changing tables that you can put under your baby during a diaper change. You can buy them in supermarkets and children’s stores. Diaper rash can appear at any time while traveling, so you need to have a small tube of diaper rash ointment.
Bring some blankets and you will find them useful when covering your baby or protecting your clothes from burping. Baby wipes not only help you clean your baby’s butt, but also clean your face, hands, and even spills. You can opt for disposable bibs instead of carrying completely dirty ones. Also include travel cloth diapers that can act as a burp to clean up spills on your baby checklist.
Hungry children can increase the discomfort on the road. Imagine how difficult it would be to appease a hungry newborn on a flight. So bring enough infant formula to last with unexpected delays. If you are breastfeeding your baby, make sure you have enough snacks and bottled water.
Bring enough bottles to last during the trip. Don’t forget the bottle brush and a travel dish detergent that you will need in case you need to clean bottles on the way.
Bring several sealable bags that you can use to dispose of dirty diapers or to keep dirty clothes. After changing your baby’s diapers, you may have a hard time finding a sink where you can clean your hands. Bringing a travel hand sanitizer should keep your hands clean after a diaper change.
Bring fever and cold medicines in case your baby suddenly feels a rise in body temperature. If you’re traveling by plane, make sure these medications are in your carry-on or diaper bag. Make sure that the spoon or dropper for each medicine is also in the bag. You should also bring a thermometer so you know its temperature in case your newborn gets sick.
Keep your little one groomed at all times by bringing toiletries like a brush, shampoo, soap, and nail clippers.
Carrying your baby is easier if you have a front harness or baby carrier. You should find this useful if you are in crowded areas such as airports. If you are traveling by car, do not forget the car seat and the car seat cushion to support your baby’s head during the whole trip. A foldable stroller is also a necessity, something that can be stowed in the overhead bin.
To avoid losing important items, start packing a few days before you travel. Delete the things you have packed from the list. Put your baby’s clothes in separate bags to save you the hassle of looking for smaller items like socks.
Don’t forget to take your camera, charger, and spare memory card with you. Your baby travel checklist should also include age-appropriate toys like rattles, soft animals, plastic keys, and soft animals.
