What to pack in the carry on for baby?
Have you seen young parents rifling through cabin baggage to try and find something for their baby before you had your own? Now this is your first trip with your little one. Are you wondering what should be an essential baby carry on list?
A good baby carry on list is not just about the obvious, but things you may not have thought about. For instance, a permission letter for travel abroad.
A permission letter is required if you have a different name to your baby and you are travelling abroad without the other parent.
Women in particular have been aghast to discover that they had trouble at immigration because of this. This can either mean the end of the holiday before it's begun or such intense stress that the holiday is ruined.
Others have been horrified to discover they missed something as crucial as a change of clothes for themselves. They then had to sit in clothes the baby has pooed on or thrown up on for hours together.
This is as relevant on a plane, train or car, so you don’t have to rifle through your neatly packed suitcase to find a pacifier for instance.
