Sharing Is Caring: Packing Checklist For A Baby

Salam & Good Day to all

Have you packed your things for balik kampung? We are still in the midst of packing!!! We'll be going back to Kedah on Saturday, early in the morning maybe before Subuh to avoid massive traffic jam. I got this checklist from Babycenter. Maybe you can add more on this checklist later.


Nappies
One for each hour you'll be in transit, plus extras in case of emergencies or delays
Baby blanket(s)Bring at least one for comfort, shade and warmth
Resealable plastic bags Pack some medium-sized ones for stashing dirty nappies, clothes and bibs  belum prepare lagi
Nappy rash cream
Baby wipes
Baby bath and lotion
Tissues
Extra pacifiers - we dont need this
Clothes
One to two outfits per day. Pack cotton layers for travelling
Washable bibs
Bottles
Sun hat and sun screen (at least sun protection factor 20) - hmm perlu ke eh?
Food, formula, water and/or juiceBring more than you think you'll need for the trip, as you can't predict travel delays. Don't forget bottles and beakers, too
Breast pumpFor expressing breast milk
Nightlight 
For night-time feeds and nappy changes
our journey plan is on daytime but bole la bawak torchlight as backup
Baby slingLightweight and easy to pack. One study showed that babies who were carried in a sling or in their parents' arms cried less than other babies
Travel cot Necessary unless you reserve a cot with your accommodation or your baby sleeps with you xperlu rasa nya
Baby car seat for safe travel by car, plane, train, or busIt can double as an baby seat, too
Collapsible buggy From six months. Lightweight, convenient and can be stored in luggage racks or lockers xperlu 
Packing Tips 
Start preparing to pack a few weeks before you travel. Keep an ongoing list of items to bring, or put items out on a table or chest of drawers as you think of them 
  • use a baby bag with a waterproof lining and a shoulder strap 
  • pack an extra shirt or top for yourself in your hand luggage in case of accidents 
  • prevent leaks by packing medicines and toiletries in re-sealable plastic bags 
  • bring a 60cm square of plastic or a changing mat to put under your baby during nappy changes 
  • keep an energy-boosting snack handy for yourself 
  • bring your camera and plenty of film or digital memory cards 
  • bring a clip-on reading light so you can read without disturbing your baby
