What’s In My Bag (Flying with Infant)

Posted by on June 4, 2013

When flying with infant I prefer to pack a diaper bag as well as a carry on backpack.  I feel like I can keep things better organized and more quickly accessible in the diaper bag. Then I pack the back up and emergency items in the backpack. Here is what I am packing in my backpack for my flight with John tomorrow:

flying with infant

  • thin baby blanket
  • BabyLegs (versatile leg/arm warmers)
  • spare diaper wipes
  • Teething medicine
  • Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer
  • cozy socks
  • spare diapers (Pack enough for 48 hours between this bag and diaper bag. I’m packing 14 diapers.)
  • Kleenex
  • ponytail holder
  • spare small can of formula
  • spare bottle
  • change of clothes (baby)
  • change of clothes (me)
  • Quart sized Ziploc bag of liquids (contact solution, lotion, medicines, toothpaste)
  • prescription medicine
  • spare battery charger
  • medicine (for me here it’s allergy medicine and emergency meds like Tums and chewable Pepto
  • Hand Sanitizing Wipes
  • Spare tote bag
  • Glasses
  • Passport
  • Sweater (for me)
  • Galaxy Tablet
  • Snacks (my snack this trip are: Luna Bar, Planters NUT-rition bar, Cashews, Mint M&Ms, Fruit Leather, Lollipops, Tea, Starbucks VIA, Special K Protein Water Mix
  • (not pictured) Phone and Tablet Chargers
  • Spare bottle

**At the airport I will buy 2 large bottles of water and will add these to the backpack.

My diaper bag will have all of the items I pack on a daily basis including a change of clothes, toys, diapers wipes and bottles as well as my wallet and lipstick. I wrote a post on packing the diaper bag and you can find it here.

If Ella were traveling with us also I would add a change of clothes for her and her toy bag. Recently I have been putting her toys in a gallon sized Ziploc Bag and then carrying it in the backpack. Would you add anything when for a flying with infant carry-on bag?
