I don’t know about you, but one of my least favourite parts of going away is the packing (read here for holiday essentials). It’s always down to me to make sure that everyone in the family has everything they need, and it literally hurts my head when I have to sift through all our belongings and sort them into huge piles before we go on any trip – short or long.

Need a baby holiday checklist?

Throw a baby into the mix… well then you have a recipe for disaster because chances are now that you have more things to remember to take, then the likelihood of forgetting something is higher. Which is why it is essential to have a baby travel packing list to help you get organised.

Here’s An Essential Baby Travel Packing list

Now that Monkey is older, there isn’t the need to pack tons of items for him, but with Peanut’s arrival, and several overseas trips this year, he’s a completely different story… I don’t want to be abroad in a destination I don’t know at all, and not have the baby’s favourite comforter! Can you imagine the trauma?

We’re off to Lisbon next week, and when I sat down to make a list of all the baby stuff I needed to bring with us in order to facilitate a smooth experience, it dawned on me that I would need this baby travel packing list for a few years to come. The baby’s toiletries and equipment alone make my head spin!

So I’ve compiled a free, downloadable and printable Essential Baby Travel Packing List which will hopefully make the whole trauma of getting all your gear together much easier. You can either click on the image below or this link for your free printable checklist.
