Traveling with a Toddler or Baby? Remember to Pack Travel-Sized Goods

 

Traveling with babies and toddlers can be a challenge because you have to remember to pack diapers, baby wipes, and other such items in your luggage. Gaining access to your luggage can be difficult, during long car trips, or whenever you are flying. Instead, you need to pack a travel bag with all of the goods you require during the trip, and have it easily accessible.

 

Rather than attempting to stuff the bag with full-sized products, there are travel-sized packages available in popular brand names, like Huggies® and Johnson’s®. By using the smaller versions of the baby brands you like, you do not have to worry about making the bag too heavy to carry, and you will still have plenty of room for packing food, treats, and toys to keep you baby or toddler occupied in the car or on the plane.

 

You also do not have to worry about liquids and gels not being allowed through TSA screening areas, when you fly, because all of the products are the approved sizes. The only thing you have to do is put them into a one quart clear zipping bag. This makes the screening processes go much faster, because you only have to remove one bag, rather than loose, individual goods. If you packed formula and other baby food into your travel bag, remember these items often have to removed and screened, outside of the bags, and can have limitations as to the quantity you are allowed to carry onto the plane.
