What special items did you pack to travel with your baby?

I am getting ready to start packing for our Christmas trip with our 11 month old and want to make sure I don't forget anything.

  • We went on vacation a couple months ago. We stayed gone for a week and it was about a 12 hour drive both ways. We packed the normal stuff ( wipes, diapers, formula, bottles), but we also took toys and comfort items that help her to settle. We took her blankie that helps her to get to sleep and her lullaby puppy that she listens to every night before bed. I would recommend taking anything that will help her to stay in her regular routine. Keeping her routine as close to normal as possible will make everyone's trip a little more enjoyable :)

  • Tylenol, a pacifier, 1 toy every hour, comfort items. Extra blanket, layered clothing, diapers, extra shirt for you. I also highly recommend a set for the kids and bring his car seat. This helped my girls sleep better, as it was familiar and they knew how to sleep in it already. Not sure on the milk requirements now, but make sure you are with in TSA code. Also not sure on TSA rules for foods. GL

  • laundry detergent in a little container and extra towels. If you have a poop-apocalypse you can pull over and wash it off. Especially if the explosion hits the car seat.

  • Only pack enough diapers for the traveling portion of your trip. You can save lots of room for other things if you buy diapers when you get to where you are going.
