What to Pack When Travelling with a Newborn Baby?

March 14, 2023

Travelling with a newborn baby requires careful planning and preparation to ensure that the trip is as comfortable and safe as possible for the baby. Here are some essential items to pack:


Pack enough nappies to last the duration of the trip, plus a few extra in case of emergencies. You may be able to buy the same nappies at your destination, or you may decide to take them with you.


Bring plenty of wipes to clean up messes and keep the baby clean and fresh.

Baby Clothes

Pack enough clothes for the baby for the duration of the trip, plus a few extra in case of spills or accidents. Be sure to pack clothes appropriate for the weather and the activities you have planned.


Bring a few soft blankets to keep the baby warm and cosy, as well as for use during feeding and nappy changes.

Baby carrier or stroller

Depending on your travel plans and preferences, you may want to bring a baby carrier or stroller to transport your baby.

Formula or breast milk

If you are formula-feeding or expressing breast milk, bring enough for the duration of the trip, plus a few extras in case of delays or emergencies.

Bottles and feeding supplies

Pack bottles, nipples, and any other feeding supplies you need.


If your baby uses a dummy, be sure to pack a few extras.

Medications and first aid kit

Bring any necessary medications or supplements, as well as a basic first aid kit.

Travel documents

Don’t forget to bring any necessary travel documents, such as passports or birth certificates.

Remember to also check with your airline, hotel, or accommodation for their specific requirements for travelling with a newborn baby. We have mentioned all the basics above, and remember that unless you are staying somewhere very remote, you can usually buy replacements for anything you forget. Above all, relax and try to enjoy your holiday!
