10 Must Have Carry On Items for Newborn Babies

After our first flight with Evelyn, I realized that I 100% over packed. There was so much that I thought I needed after hearing over and over that you need to pack so much when travelling with your kids. To my surprise, I discovered the opposite. We really needed such a minimal amount of stuff when travelling our newborn. Read on to find out 10 (really all you need) must have carry on items for newborn babies.

Due to the fact that I am solely breastfeeding, my list is going to be shorter then if you are not. So items that might pertain to pumping and bottle feeding is not included. If you are solely breastfeeding, then this list is literally all you need (plus don’t forget to add a change of clothes). Each of these items added to the ease of our travel and helped to keep baby warm, comfortable and clean while travelling on the airplane.

What to Pack: Carry On Items for Newborn Babies

From left to right, top to bottom

1. K’pure Naturals Overachiever // A travel sized balm that is perfect for literally everything. Use it for you lips, nipples and as a bum rash balm, it is an all in one that makes your life that much easier. I personally have used it for all three and have two, one for home and one for my diaper bag as it is great to always have on hand.

2. Twinklebelle Design fleece toque // Airplanes can get chilly and you want to make sure that you keep your newborn warm the whole time. Keeping them warm and comfortable will make it so much easier to get them to sleep.

3. Numpfer Multi-use Bib and Wash Cloth // Speaks for itself really. These were perfect all throughout our trip. The super soft bamboo  multi-use cloth can be worn as a bib or used as a wash cloth. This is especially useful over long flights.

4. Glitter and Spice Soother Clip // If this list was in order I think this would be right at the top. I never used to be a soother clip girl, but the amount of up and downs and in and outs that happen during travel you really want to make sure that that soother isn’t going to be falling on the ground every two seconds. A soother clip won’t have you panicking and going “where the heck did the soother go again” and you can rest assured it won’t be lost before the flight either.

5. Bebe au Lait Muslin blanket // This blanket in particular is a favorite, it is light weight but super warm and cozy. The muslin swaddle like feel in a thicker layered blanket makes for the perfect must have blanket. One tip that I was told before the trip was that airlines do not offer blankets anymore, so we made sure to bring this favorite along in the carry on.

6. Vonbon Fleece Romper // I bought this romper specifically for our flight. The fleece lining is super cozy and the snaps on the inside of the legs makes for easy changing and a warm comfortable travel outfit. Make note to also pack some spares, in case of unexpected pukes and blowouts.

7. KEWE Clothing Lovie Teether // Something for those little ones to grab onto, crew on and snuggle with. Another light weight dream product that was multi-purpose and convenient to have on hand.

8. Underables Socks // Those little toes are always the first to get cold. Make sure to pack a few pairs.

9. Minimoc Warm Shoes // These are a dream. The coziest shoes to touch your little one’s feet indeed. I got my first pair before our baby was even born and I was so pleased to have them for our first flight.

10. Beluga Baby Bamboo Wrap // Another top of the list must have. This wrap is absolutely perfect on the must have list because it actually will fit into your carry on. The bamboo soft fabric takes up minimal space in your carry on and is amazing for travelling hands free with baby, especially during the first few hours at the airport. *Please remember to not wear baby during take off or landing.

Packing light should be on the priority list, especially when you have kids. I found that I was told that I needed so much more then I really ended up using and if I did our trip over again I would pack even lighter. Hope you have a great trip and can utilize some of our tips from our must have carry on items for newborn babies.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
