Traveling With a Baby Survival List

March 26, 2019


I recently helped a family prepare for there first vacation with a new baby.  We came up with a pretty solid packing list and I realized how essential this list is for people.  This list was designed for a baby around 1 year old and they were traveling to a hot climate for 1 week, so keep that in mind when adjusting this list to fit your own needs.  Happy vacationing!


    - band-aids
    - Polysporin (for kids)
    - thermometer
    - Tylenol and Advil
    - Oval or gripe water (for upset stomach)
    - teething toy
    - Camilla (homeopathic teething medication)
    - blue painters tape to cover electrical outlets and secure drawers



   - nail clippers

   - bath soap/shampoo

   - lotion

   - wipes (3 packages) 

   - diapers (40-50)

   - a pad to change him on

   - small bags (like dog poop bags to put dirty diapers in on the go)

    - bottles 
    - formula 

    - breast pump 
    - sippy cup
    - snack container 
    - food pouches and snacks 

    - microwaveable sterilizing bags 

    **ensure the resort has a kettle to boil water for cleaning and/or making bottles**


    - sleep sacs 
    - warmer sleepers (the AC may be cold)
    - sound machine 
    - crib sheet in case they don’t provide one
    - ensure that a crib will be provided to you and that it meets safety requirements 
    - extra large bed sheet to cover any windows/make the room darker


    - sun shade
    - hat 
    - swim wear (more than one)
    - swim diapers
    - sunscreen 
    - aloe vera gel or “after sun lotion”
    - large towel/blanket to put on the sand     
    - sunglasses 


    - small toys (for the plane!)
    - music

    - lovey or special toy/blanket 
    - book 
    - stroller 
    - bibs
    - wet bag(s)
