Essential baby travel items

Not sure if you’ve packed everything? On top of the accessories listed above, make sure you’ve brought these baby must-haves with you for the trip.

  • Clothes. Pack enough for each day plus a few more changes in case of accidents. This includes bodysuits, vests, socks and a wrap.
  • Nappies and a nappy bag: Bring enough for each day, or at least until you can get to a supermarket. A change mat and nappy rash cream are also essentials.
  • Folding stroller. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just something strong and lightweight that folds easily.
  • Safety items. If your baby starts to crawl around, be sure you have a safety gate or travel playpen with you.
  • Toiletries. Don’t forget baby soap, shampoo, skin creams, and toothbrush and toothpaste, if required.
