There’s so much to remember when you’re getting out the door with your little ones, and getting ready to cross state lines or the ocean is a whole other beast.
Whether it’s your first trip with an infant or you’re reevaluating your packing skills for your older children, our goal is to lighten your load: both what you’re carrying and all the time it takes to figure out what you need...not to mention the fear of forgetting a must-have (her beloved blankie?!)
To that end, we’ve rounded up a list of must-packs for each age group:
And we’ve organized these recommendations for you based on where to keep what: within reach, stowed carry-on, or checked luggage.
Our packing philosophy is the same as our approach to everything else: being best prepared isn’t about having everything you could possibly need for every potential scenario. Deliberately minimal travel is about having the right things in the right places, so you have easy access to exactly what you need.
If you’ve been searching for a way to travel with less stress, or you’re looking to minimize your baggage without sacrificing the essentials, look no further. Our Deliberately Minimal Travel series is designed to be a quick reference for you to pack for your little ones with less stuff and less stress.
