07 Dec Travel Tips for Wandering Mamas
Avoid taking a diaper bag and a screaming baby to the changing room
What you need:
1 box gallon ziplock freezer bags
1 box puppy training pads
1 pack wipes
1 pack diapers
2 changes of clothes (minimum…)
For light diapers – make as many as you think you’ll need: Take 1 ziplock bag. Place inside: 1 folder puppy training mat, 1 diaper, a few wipes. Seal bag.
For heavy diapers – make as many as you think you’ll need: Take 1 ziplock bag. Place inside: 1 folder puppy training mat, 1 diaper, bunch of wipes, change of clothes
Place filled ziplock bags in diaper bag. When needed, grab one out of the diaper bag and take to the changing room. Everything can be disposed of after the baby is changed.
Avoid a squirming, screaming baby during airplane boarding
If you are traveling with someone, have them take all the carry-on items on board the plane first and get everything stored and organized. You aim to be the last person to board with your baby, so you can just walk on, sit, buckle up and taxi.
Sleep, baby, sleep
For overnight flights, pack all your usual bedtime routine items in your carry-on. Before boarding the plane, have your baby change into his/her pjs and brush teeth as normal. Once on the plane, you can read a bedtime story and sing any lullabies.
