The Ultimate Packing List for Your Baby’s First Trip
That first trip is always exciting and nerve wracking.
You’ve gone from travelling as a carefree pair to a conscious trio.
And, naturally, travel looks a bit different.
Spontaneity has been replaced by careful and precise planning.
And luxury is equivalent to ensuring minimal spills and having just a few more hours of sleep.
But that’s all part and parcel of holidaying with a baby.
It can be in equal parts rewarding and challenging.
To ensure your upcoming vacation is more serene than it is stressful, take a look at Greendigo’s ultimate packing list for babies.
We’ve bundled all the basics, so you don’t have to wrack your brain.
This way, you’ll always have what you need.
Clothes - Make sure to pack weather appropriately. For a humid climate, onesies are light and breathable. For colder locales, throw in a blanket, cap, and mittens.
Shoes – Booties are the way to go, as their super comfortable and protective. Always carry 2-3 extra pair of socks.
Accessories – Go in for multipurpose accessories that can be repeated and worn interchangeably.
Diapers – Try eco-friendly diapers. Check to see if there are reusable or adjustable tabs, for heightened convenience.
Wipes – Make sure your baby wipes are absorbent and hyper allogenic.
Changing pads – Procure a few plastic or disposable changing pads to use while changing your baby’s diapers.
Soap/Shampoo – Go in for a mild baby soap, along with sulphate free shampoo.
Lotion – Explore fragrance free and antiseptic lotions.
Oil – Pack organic and natural baby oils, to re-energise.
Powder – Carry baby powder that is free of dyes, phthalates and parabens.
Sunscreen – Opt for a gentle, baby-friendly SPF.
Car seat - Pick a lightweight, compact, portable style.
Stroller – Ensure your stroller can be easily assembled and reassembled.
Sling – Pick a soft and durable sling, for when you want your hands free.
Bib – Carry washable and disposable bibs. Make sure they are not too tight/restrictive.
Burp cloth – Pick organic cotton burp cloths that are not too big nor too small for your shoulder.
Pacifier – Go in for a pacifier that features a natural nipple-like shape and flexible face shield.
Bath and Bedding
Blanket – Carry 1-2 soft, organic cotton, blankets that are machine washable.
Pillow – Go in for dual cover baby pillows that are both, comfortable and waterproof.
Towel – Throw in 2-3 lightweight and absorbent towels like Greendigo hooded towels.
Sleep sack – Always have an organic cotton sleeping bag in handy.
Toys – Always carry bright and stimulating toys like stuffed animals, playdough, or Lego, to keep ‘em busy and distracted.
Medicines – Carry medication for a cough, cold, fever and loose motions, along with antiseptic solution, cotton and bandages.
