I am in love with all these items – I can feel an online shopping spree coming on! The secret to a successful flight is planning. Plan for every situation and always carry extra food and a change of clothes. Here are some of the other items I include in my carry on bag to survive the flight with bubs:


Starting with mum (when do we ever get to go first!) I have packed my trusty iPad mini. I know this is fairly optimistic of me, but in a perfect world once bubs has drifted off to sleep in my arms the iPad mini is the perfect size to hold one handed and catch up on my reading.

Next up is the spf30 Clear Milk sunscreen from Neoskin, Aveda Stress Fix roll on oil and Burt’s Bees tinted lip gloss. These will have you looking fabulous once you reach your destination.

I never go anywhere without my Oroton sunglasses. These are awesome for hiding those tired eyes when bubs is keeping you up. My trusty Harper & Hudson teething necklace is a must. I love the Moxie purse pack for your pads – let’s face it, after having a baby your cycle can be a little unpredictable so I never want to be caught out.

Now for bubs – I have the Trunki Snoozihead which is a pillow and blanket all in one. Raffertys Garden baby food squeeze packs are made for travel and are such a convenient way to carry food for your baby. I always carry a few of these in my handbag just in case my littlest adventurer needs a snack.

Dummies or pacifiers are a must have item for me and my littlest adventurer loves these Closer to Nature ones. They come in a little container too so they are easy to store in your carry on.

This beautiful bottle warmer (and matching bib) from Apple & Bee is a stylish and practical way to keep your baby’s bottle warm for the trip.

I am totally obsessed with this Melobaby nappy wallet. It’s an all in one solution to carry your changemat, wipes and nappies. It’s convenient on the go and means you only need to take the Nappy wallet when changing your baby in those tiny restrooms on board!

And finally, this lovely baby bag from Mimco will hold all your essentials (and much more!) with loads of pockets and storage it’s a no brainer 🙂
