+

As we get ready to head out for Memorial Day weekend here are some suggestions on what to pack if you are bringing a little one.

Packing Checklist

  • Diapers-One for each hour you’ll be in transit, plus extras in case of delays
  • Pad to put under your baby during diaper changes-You can buy disposable changing pads at supermarkets or reusable ones at baby stores.
  • Blankets-Bring a few β€” you’ll use them to lay your baby on, cover your baby, cover yourself if you’re nursing, protect your clothes from messy burps, shade your baby, and more
  • Plastic bags-Carry a variety of sizes for storing soiled diapers, clothes, and blankets.
  • Diaper rash cream
  • Wipes
  • Small bottles of disinfecting hand gel, baby wash, and baby lotion
  • Tissues
  • Extra pacifiers (if your baby uses one)
  • A few of your baby’s favorite toys
  • Clothes, socks, and booties or shoes
  • One to two outfits per day is a good guideline.
  • Washable bibs
  • Sun hat
  • Lightweight plastic feeding set with utensils, and baby food
  • If your baby’s eating solid foods
  • Formula, water, and juice if appropriate
  • Extra bottles, nipples, and sippy cups if appropriate
  • Energy-boosting snacks for you to munch on
  • Breast pump (if you use one)
  • Nightlight-So you can keep the room lighting soothingly low during middle-of-the-night diaper changes
  • First-aid kit-Baby pain reliever and supplies for treating minor injuries
  • Sling or front carrier-Lightweight, hands-free way to keep your baby close in crowded places like airports
  • Portable crib or play yard-A safe place for your baby to sleep or play
  • Inflatable baby bathtub-Can make bath time easier at your destination.
  • Car seat for safer travel by car or plane
  • Collapsible stroller-Can be gate-checked or stored in the overhead bin of an airplane.
