My family and I are going on our annual family vacation and I’m taking my 2 year old daughter. This will be her second plane ride! The first time she got on a airplane she was just 11 months old. I had no clue about what to take on the plane. As a first time Mom, I felt like I needed to pack up everything in the nursery! Here’s a few things to bring when traveling with your little one.

  1. Car seat – This is a necessity when traveling with baby and isn’t something you really want to buy when you get to your destination. If bringing one isn’t practical and you renting a vehicle at your destination, consider renting one ahead of time to help cut down on costs, and to make sure that you have a seat when you arrive
  2. Stroller – Bringing a stroller along is a must for me. If your toddler is anything like mine and is super active, then you will want to have him/her in the stroller. It will make traveling a lot easier.
  3. Depending on where you’re going and how long you are staying, try getting all of baby’s clothes in the suitcase with yours.
  4. Use your purse to carry on some of the things that baby will need while flying… less is better in this case!
  5. Bring a toy or device on the plane to keep baby occupied.

This time around I know exactly what to bring and we are ready to fly!
