Packing List When Flying with a 12-18 Month Old
Remember the good ol’ days when you only had to pack for yourself and maybe even got away with waiting till the last minute to pack your stuff?
Well, those days are over! Sorry mama. But I’m here to help.
Are you flying overseas with a young toddler for the first time?
Today I’m sharing our packing list from our flight to Japan with Addie when she was 18 months old.
I’ve read and watched a lot of blogs/vlogs on packing lists for international travel and the list below is what we actually brought with us. I’d say this list is good for any babies from 12-18 months, so adjust as needed.
✓ Change of clothes for baby (just in case)
✓ Nursing cover if you need one
✓ First aid kit- baby Tylenol, thermometer, Frieda nose suction, boogie wipes, baby Benadryl, band aids
✓ Empty Sippy cup (buy water after security)
✓ Power bank
✓ iPad (load movies and apps)
✓ Passports & wallet
✓ A pack of diapers
✓ Kid’s bath stuff
✓ Your toiletries
✓ Phone charger
✓ Camera charger
✓ Small backpack or everyday bag
✓ Your clothes & shoes
✓ Baby’s clothes & shoes
Note for nursing moms: I wasn’t breastfeeding anymore so I didn’t bring my pump. But If you’re still breastfeeding you could definitely bring your pump! Japan has awesome nursing rooms everywhere - in train stations, airports, and shopping malls. So finding a quiet, private, and clean spot to nurse will never be a problem in Japan.
Hope this helps!
