Travel: Infant Packing List



Here is the packing list I whip out whenever I go on a trip. I’ve sent it to several friends upon request and thought I would share it with you as a starting point when you’re packing your bags for your next journey. I don’t always bring ALL of these things but I always print this list, highlight the things I’ll need and check them off as I pack them into my bags. Let me know what you would add to the list and I’ll add it! If you have any questions about why I pack certain things, leave your questions in the comments below and I’ll answer them for you. For example, I bring my marriage certificate because my last name is different from my husband’s. Links to the brands I use by clicking on the hyperlinks below :)
