For the adult carry-on: 

  • Aquaphor– Can be used as lip balm, hand lotion, and even diaper rash cream.  
  • Wipes– even if your youngest is potty trained, you can never go wrong with baby wipes.
  • Vinyasa Scarf– I don’t care where you’re flying to, this thing is a God send.  It’s a scarf, a blanket, a pillow.  Whatever you want it to be.  Plus, it is SO comfy! 
  • Book- pretty self-explanatory 
  • Hand sanitizer spray– You can clean the kids hands as well as spray down surfaces!  I always wipe down the lap trays.
  • Any medication you may need.  I always bring a bottle of this medicine for the kids in case they get sick.
  • You all are going to love me for this- these Melatonin gummies for kids work wonders for those overnight flights during international travel with kids! I also take one to help me relax. 
  • Snacks galore because airplane food sucks.

    Also your fashion sense is killer! I know it’s not the point of the post but that pink skirt in your photo is incredible and the blue one down below is so romantic

    I agree with all of this except the melatonin. Did you know that taking a melatonin actually messes with your bodies natural way of producing its on melatonin? Its actually not meant for children (though not healthy for anyone) and there is not much research on what type of reaction it will have on a child’s body’s long term

    Great list! I’ve flown domestically with my boys many many times in their 3 & 5 years. But we’ve never gone international, yet. My boys both get their own backpack, too and get to pick a couple of toys. I keep their kindles in my backpack, though, in case they accidentally forget their backpack somewhere.

    activity books and headphones are life savers when it comes to traveling with kids. I recently traveled with my best friends kiddos and if it wasnt for the activity books and music we would not be here to share the story ๐Ÿ˜›

    Me and my vinyasa scarf have been to 12 countries. It is my favorite thing ever. Iโ€™ve used it as a blanket, a pillow, a nursing cover, an umbrella. Lol. I might have to try those melatonin gummies during our next long flight.

    Wow, you have listed some great list there. I remember when we (me and my brother) were kids my mom use to travel with lot of luggage. We never use to understand than, but now we know what she must have gone through while travelling with bunch of bags and suitcases cuz we never helped her in packing.

    These are all great ideas! I travelled to Eastern Europe with my 5 month old years ago and I had to plan very well!!

    This came at the perfect time! My sister is off to a destination wedding in a few weeks with my 1 year old niece, who has NEVER traveled! I know she will find this useful, and hopefully it will take away some of her pre-travel stress!
