Travelling with baby

Essentials for Every Baby Travel Bag

Baby clothing:

One of the joys of traveling with a baby is dressing them in delightful outfits. Ensure you pack according to the weather at your destination. Opt for a versatile selection to cater for unexpected weather changes. Our personal recommendation would be our country and farm-themed clothing. Keep an extra set or two in the baby travel bag, because as every parent knows, spills and messes are just part of the adventure!
Pro-tip: Choose clothing items that are easy to put on and take off. These adorable tractor leather shoes not only slip on effortlessly but perfectly match the countryside theme.

Baby blankets:

A soft, comfortable blanket is indispensable. It can act as a cover, play-mat, or just something familiar for your baby. Our Powell Craft Farmyard Baby Blanket is both cosy and fitting for your country-inspired baby wardrobe.


If you're flying, a good rule of thumb is to pack one nappy for every hour you're in the air, plus a few extras for delays. This ensures your baby remains dry and comfortable.

Comforters and toys:

Keep your baby entertained and comforted. A familiar toy or comforter, like our baby highland cow comforter, can work wonders to soothe a fussy child.

Feeding supplies:

Whether you're breastfeeding, formula-feeding, or your baby is on solids, don't forget all the necessary feeding equipment. Remember to pack extra formula, sterilised bottles, and baby-friendly snacks.

Baby care products:

Think baby wipes, creams, a first-aid kit, and any other essential care products.

Travel equipment:

If you're on the road, having the right travel equipment can make the journey smoother. Consider a portable cot, a stroller that’s easy to fold, and a car seat.

A Few FAQs:

Can you take a nappy bag on a plane?

Yes, you can! Most airlines understand the needs of travelling parents and won’t count the nappy bag as your standard carry-on. However, always check with your airline beforehand to avoid last-minute hassles.

Picking baby clothes for travel?

Opt for layers! Layers can easily be added or removed based on the weather.

Things to carry while travelling with baby in car?

Apart from the essentials, keep some window shades to protect your baby from direct sunlight and a travel-friendly music playlist or sound machine to soothe them.

In Conclusion

Travelling with a baby requires planning, but with the right items, it can be a delightful experience. Use this baby packing list as your go-to guide, and make sure to add a touch of countryside charm with our themed baby clothing and accessories. Safe travels and cherish the memories made with your little one!
