Getting Out

Ready to roll? Let's double-check.

There's so much to bring along for baby when you travel...do you even have room for the baby? Of course. Here's a packing checklist to help you get organized.

Having been on numerous trips with my daughter and son at various stages of babyness, I'm happy to share my top three tips to making your travel day a little smoother...

  • Try to book your flights for when your baby will sleep or will be in a good mood. If baby is too nosy to nap when out and about somewhere new (like mine), at least they aren't cranky.
  • Before you go, get baby used to room temperature bottles and food. This saves the hassle of heating while you're en route.
  • Separate all of baby's belongings throughout your luggage. This way, if a bag gets lost, it's not the one with all the baby's things. For your carry-on, however, keep all of baby's food and toiletries together. This helps you stay organized when going through security.

If you think like a Boy Scout and "be prepared," your travel days should pass by in the blur they should be, and your most vivid memories will be of your amazing time together as a family.
