The Ultimate (Printable!) Baby Travel Checklist

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

If you’re a first-time mom, you’ll be surprised by the amount of stuff you’ll need to pack for Baby when you travel.

To make your next trip easier (and so you don’t forget any vital stuff when traveling with Baby!), check out our baby travel checklist below. We’ve also included a free printable from FrugalFanatic.com at the bottom of the post!

Also, you should start packing a few days in advance and keep marking things off on your list. That’ll relieve much of the traveling-with-baby stress.

QUICK TIP: Pack tiny socks and shirts in their own zipped bags so you don’t have to hunt around for them.

Baby travel checklist – the Basics

1. Diapers

One for each hour in transit is a good rule of thumb.

2. Plastic Bags

Carry a variety of sizes to store your soiled diapers and baby clothes.

3. Baby Sling or Front Carrier

This is lightweight and allows you a hands-free way to keep your baby close.

4. Diaper Bag

A diaper bag with a shoulder strap and water proof lining is easy to carry and will keep any leaks from happening. Put an extra outfit or two just in case of leaky diapers and spit up. Pack toiletries and medicines in resealable plastic bags.
