Tips for traveling with a baby

June 29, 2009

Traveling with a baby can be daunting and overwhelming. You can avoid disasters of missing a flight or losing the stroller – here are top ten tips to prepare you for traveling with a baby:

Check-in
Make sure to leave plenty of time to get to the airport, check in, and go through security. With baby in tow, everything takes a bit longer.

Bottle
If you are bringing a bottle, be aware that security will have to scan the milk as you pass through. This often takes a while.

Stroller
Make sure you know exactly how to fold your stroller. You will need to be able to do it quickly and efficiently!

Light Stroller
A stroller that is inexpensive and lightweight is your best bet. When I first started traveling with my son, I carried my two-piece Bugaboo, which is both lightweight and easy to fold.

Pack Light
Only carry what you will need for the airport and plane ride. Bring a bottle if needed, three diapers, and buy travel sizes of your baby essentials such as wet wipes and Aquaphor.

Carry
Only carry on what you really need for yourself. You will be preoccupied with taking care of the baby.

Clothes
Include an extra change of clothes for the baby. Make sure that both of you are dressed comfortably, especially for longer flights.

Best time to travel
Pick the best time to travel with a baby. When taking a long trip, try and book the red-eye flight so your baby can sleep for the entire flight.

Diapers
Think ahead. Buy your baby supplies when you get to your destination. Or, you can order them in advance from www.diapers.com and have them shipped directly to your destination.

Pacifier
If your baby uses a pacifier, as mine does, make sure to bring at least one extra for the trip in case it falls on the floor.



  • Traveling with the baby is really a challenge! You should be bit patience as every thing goes slower, while traveling with a baby.helpful tips! thanks……

  • While we all want to pack light, I tend to find its a hard balance to achieve.

    As I always want to pack more, for just in case scenarios, which tend to happen every now again and what better place than 30,000 feet in the air 🙂
