Traveling with Baby

Monday, December 21, 2009

We will be going to Bangkok after Christmas. The first time P and I traveled together was in December 2007 also to Bangkok. That time we just thought of going at the spur of the moment. We bought our tickets on December 23 and left on December 27 with no hotel booking on a peak season and one small bag of clothes. It was my first time to travel like that. It turned out alright and was actually fun.


This time though, we will be traveling with Via along. P said we should have a hotel booking before leaving and not take a budget airline since we need more legroom. Having a 12 month old along while traveling will probably challenge our traveling light but I plan on taking along the barest minimum. One thing I hope P will agree to bring along though is the umbrella stroller. Via has gotten really heavy this past few weeks. She's now 10 kilos and I don't look forward to carrying her through the airport.

My checklist for air travel with a 12-month old (5 days):

Formula and 3 bottles
6 change of clothes
21 pcs of diapers
Baby wipes
Blanket
Sweater
hat
Swimsuit
Sippy cup
3 all purpose cloth
instant oatmeal
2 toys
toothbrush/toothpaste
sanitizer
mosquito repellant
drapolene (rash creme)
nasal saline
nivea top to toe wash
duct tape (for child proofing the room)

Sounds like a great trip is coming and you're well prepared.

I know that I always hear babies crying on ascent and descent because of some ear pressure. I wonder if there is something you could take for Via to help with that? Maybe your pediatrician would have a suggestion for her.

Have a wonderful trip and happy new year!
