Packing checklist for travelling with a baby

Most people who travel frequently like travelling light. However, if you are travelling with a baby, there are several essential items (e.g. boys pyjamas, diapers, and baby formula) that you need to carry with you. Travelling with a baby can be tricky, but with the right items, it does not have to be complicated.

First and foremost, you will need a carry-on bag, as well as a suitcase for the baby, especially if the trip is long.

We have compiled a list of items that you need to carry in the bag so that the trip can be as smooth and enjoyable as possible for you and your baby.

Items to pack in the carry-on bag

Which baby items do you need to pack in the carry-on bag?


If the trip will take one day, we highly recommend that you carry at least two days and nights worth diapers. That way, if anything happens during your trip and causes a delay, you will have enough diapers for your baby.

So, make sure you always carry extra diapers with you.


A pair of boys pyjamas will come in hand during your trip, when you need to put your baby to sleep. Babies are also very active and playful, which causes them to spill on themselves, soil their clothes, spit up, or burp on themselves during breast feeding.

The pyjamas will help keep your baby warm and cozy throughout the rest of the trip.

Baby blankets

When travelling with a baby, it is always better to keep 2 or 3 baby blankets within reach in the carry-on bag. If your baby falls asleep while you are holding them in public, you can use the blanket to cover them up so that they can feel warm and sleep peacefully.

Additionally, if your baby needs to be breastfed in public, you can use the blanket to cover up as the baby breastfeeds. Some women do not mind breastfeeding the baby in public without covering up. And that’s fine as well.

Zip lock bags

Zip lock bags come in handy when you need to change your baby’s diapers, and have nowhere to throw away the used diapers. Also, the zip lock bags can hold the baby’s soiled clothes and keep them from contaminating the rest of the items in the carry-on bag.


Snacks are perfect for babies who can eat solid foods. If the trip will require you to spend a lot of time with the baby in the vehicle, you need to have something that will keep the baby busy and cheerful along the way. We recommend natural snacks such as fruits or vegetables to keep the baby healthy and strong.

Items to pack in the baby’s suitcase

After packing all the essential items in the carry-on bag where they will be easily accessible, pack the following items in the baby’s suitcase:

  • Baby lotion
  • Diaper cream
  • Sunscreen
  • Breast pump and milk storage container
  • Baby formula (if your baby needs it)
  • Baby wipes
  • Baby monitor
  • Clothes, shoes, socks, and bottles for the baby (we recommend two outfits for each day of your trip and two additional ones)
