Traveling with a baby can sometimes mean that you are so consumed with ensuring that you have everything you need to care for the baby on the trip that you forget things you need for yourself. The best thing to do is to prepare a checklist of what you need and then check off each item as you pack it.
A sample checklist should include the following items:
Baby lotion and soap
Formula, food, water and/or juice
Resealable plastic bags
Extra clothes - at least one or two outfits per day
Sun hat and sun screen Toys
Plastic for use in changing the baby
Any necessary medicines
Extra shirt for yourself
Kettle, if the hotel room does not have kitchen facilities
The packing for a trip involving a baby should start weeks in advance to ensure that no detail is overlooked. As you pack each item or article, check to make sure you have added extra in case of accidents.
Simply go through a sample day at home and make a list of everything the baby needs when not travelling. Add extra to the list. Bring a camera and plenty of film or if you use a digital ensure that the memory card can store lots of pictures.
