Recently, I went on a trip with my daughter and it was my first time travelling with an infant. I was a bit worried because, based on my travelling experience, I have noticed how some of the children behave. Let’s just say, It is not easy at all.
It was going to be the two of us, therefore, I didn’t want to carry heavy hand luggage and diaper bag. I made sure I downsized everything in my diaper bag(backpack) to make it easier and I was really glad I did. I was fortunate enough to get my hand luggage checked in for free. If you can get your hand luggage checked in for free, take advantage of it. Trust me, it makes life easier.
I decided to share my packing list with my fellow lovely mothers or fathers travelling with an infant.
2. Changing pad
You can get disposable ones. It is really not hygienic to place them directly on the changing table.
To prevent diaper rash.
4. Fruit puree( depending on what they are in to).
5. Mum mum biscuit
I was advised to give her something to chew on to prevent discomfort in the ear.
6. Sippy cup
She needs water, milk or juice for hydration.
7. Toys or pacifier cleaner
Babies tend to drop items and you can not always get up to go to the bathroom. This saves you time.
8. Hand sanitiser
9. Baby wipes
10. Favorite toy
11. Extra clothes/socks/bibs
You never know when an accident can occur. Mess up their clothes with food or poo. You have to be ready.
12. Plastic bag for diaper dispose
Watch nursery rhymes to keep her occupied. It is not all the planes that have tv on board.
14. Feeding cloth
It is all about privacy.
To cover her when she sleeps or even when the plane is too cold.
