WIMDB for Travel?

What’s in my diaper bag for travel via airplane?

The husband, E.K., and I took a trip to Chicago for a family function a week or so ago. It was the very first time we traveled with E.K. and his first time on a airplane. E.K. just turned 9 months old, so I was concerned how he’d behave on the 2 hour flight and if I’d have everything he may need during the flight. He did GREAT! I nursed during take off and tried to nurse during landing — he was too fascinated with everything going on around him. He didn’t seem to have any problems with the cabin pressure or his ears, thankfully.

So how did I pack the diaper bag in preparation of our travel?

I used my Jujube BRB backpack as my diaper bag of choice. It’s durable, lightweight and has numerous organizational pockets inside of it. I baby wore E.K. in my Tula and carried the Jujube BRB on my back to allow my hands to be free. Best decision ever!

A must have at all times for my diaper bags (not just for travel) is the Jujube Be Quick that I use as a diaper clutch… the contents that I add are:

  1. Four size 3 diapers
  2. Wipes
  3. Butt paste
  4. Lavender scented trash bags (for soiled diapers)
  5. and a couple of disposable change pads

Another must have for me is the Travelon cubes. I have two sets (even though I only use one set for E.K.). You can find these at your local TJ Maxx for $9.99 or order them from Amazon for slightly more…

In the small cube, I have saline spray, tylenol w/ the dispenser, boogie wipes (travel size pack), and vaseline.

In the medium cube, I have 3 food pouches, a spoon, 2 disposable bibs, 1 large terry cloth bib (because it can double as a rag if needed, 4 disposable place mats, and a pack of mum-mums (not pictured).

I ended up not using the large cube, although I typically use the large one for spare clothing.

It’s important to always have a change of clothes for E.K. in case he has a accident or gets too dirty while eating/snacking. I used a thin travel pouch I ordered from Amazon to keep a change of clothes in for him…

Next up… the snacks… my baby is a snacker just like his mama. So I had to give him some options…

The skip hop snack tower is a God send. It fits perfectly in most diaper bags while not consuming a lot of space.

And last but not least, the formula, bottle, sip cup, and toys…

I also packed a Aden & Anais blanket in case it got too cold on the plane and to cover us up while nursing. E.K. loves to snatch it off while he’s nursing, so I just gave up and let whoever wanted to stare at me nursing him to stare {insert shrug here}.

There was space left in the bag, so I also added additional diapers in the mesh portion of the bag. I also added hand and face wipes.

PackedUp

Since our flight only lasted 2 hours, I only had to use the diaper clutch (jujube be quick),  the snacks and the blanket. I will definitely pack this way again for our next family trip.
