Packing List for a Toddler and Baby for a Holiday Vacation

posted in: Advice, Lifestyle, Travel | 4

Traveling with two kids under 2 years old is really stressful. This stress is compounded when you are going to a destination where you might not be able to buy locally any of your staples for the kids, such as formula.

Almost fully packed, and ready to go to the airport

We recently got back from a holiday trip to Mexico – shoutout to The Finest Playa Mujeres, which is an awesome all-inclusive resort – and in the weeks prior to our departure we obtained “baby travel lists” from multiple parents,* and put together our own detailed account of what we needed to pack for the children.

    And meds for parents that you may not be able to get at destination or in hotel. Like Tylenol cold/sinus, polysporin,antiobiotics for known recurant infections like UTIs.

      For sure – although this is a list specifically dedicated to children. One thing that is missing: natural cough medicine.

    Literally the most used and favorite piece of baby gack we ever had. It fits flat on top of most family size suitcases for best travel bath ever.

    Using it at home – Dad can keep (mostly) dry and sit in the dry large tub while baby/kid is in their tub.

      That looks awesome! And, would have been great for this trip, as the hotel didn’t have a bathtub for bathing the little ones.
