If this is your first time packing for a baby to go on a trip, whether a quick airplane ride or a long one, no matter what the age of your little one, it can be a little stressful. Here is a helpful diaper bag packing list for a newborn to one year old to consider.
Diapers, wipes, changing pad, and ointment (extra, extra, extra)
Baby Tylenol (just in case, if you have it you won’t need it)
Bottles, formula, nursing cover, spoons, baby food, and snacks (don’t bring a bowl, just ask for an extra cup during beverage service)
Burp rag! Even if you think your baby is too old for it, you never know when it will come in handy!
Blankets and snuggly items (it can get cold on an airplane even during the summer months)
Extra change of clothes (I can’t even count the number of times I have forgotten a change of clothes and desperately needed it!)
Small quiet toys and books to keep older baby occupied.
Pacifier, pacifier clip for clothing, and TWO extra pacifiers!
An extra bag full of patience and sanity. You will most likely be needing that.
These are just the few must-have items that you don’t want to get caught without. What are some other items you always pack for your baby on airplane rides?
