Flying with your baby or toddler for the first time (and even the second and the third time!) can be intimidating – use our baby packing list to make sure you’ve got all your babies needs covered!
Packing your on board bag for a small toddler or baby can be stressful. Remembering something you have forgotten to bring 1 hour into a 10 hour flight is the stuff of pre-flight nightmares.
Use our interactive packing list to ease any packing woes. Our clever list will remember what you have ticked off if you return to it later (on the same device).
What to pack
Your stroller can be gate checked as you board your flight meaning you can use your stroller till the last minute!
Enough to make it through the flight plus lots extra!
In a tube no bigger than 100ml/3.4 ounces due to international airline regulations, bigger volumes need to go into your checked luggage.
Keep one pack on your person and another in your hand luggage so you don't have to rummage around in the overhead compartment.
Disposable ones are good for air travel!
Keep clothing items together in a zip lock bag so they are handy and use the bag later for soiled clothing.
In case of baby spills!
It's not alway convenient to go to the plane bathroom to wash your hands.
If your baby uses a bottle, pack an extra one as well as sippy cups and baby eating utensils.
If your baby uses a pacifier, pack a couple of extra and stash them in easy to reach places!
For spills and mishaps!
Consider medication for sore ears whilst taking off and landing. An older toddler could suck a lollipop to help.
Knocks and scrapes always feel better faster with a colourful band aid!
New toys are always exciting but avoid ones with small parts that can easily get lost.
Consider triangular shaped markers - they won't roll off the plane table!
Load up your phone and tablet with favourite programmes and games - remember toddler-sized earphones.
If you have two of the same one even better - in case one goes missing!
Healthy ones as well as a few treat surprises! Snacks that occupy a bit of time - like getting raisons out of a box - are a good choice!
