8 Must-Haves When Heading Out with Your Little One

8 Must-Haves When Heading Out with Your Little One

Come summers, and the innate love for vacay-ing goes off the charts. Whether it’s a road trip, a laid-back beach trip, or simply a weekend getaway, it’s essential to keep the right things on your radar for the comfort of your little one. Wondering what to pack and what not to? Fret not; we’ve got your back! 

Here we’ve compiled a list of must-haves, tried and tested, to help you pack smarter for all those adorable chaos-filled outings with your little one.

Hydrate On-The-Go

First things first! Pack plenty of baby food and formula milk to keep your little one’s tummy full throughout your travels. Remember, a happy tummy is an important step towards keeping your little one fuss-free. Go for easy-to-eat foods like fruit purees, porridge mixes, along with water or diluted fruit juices to help your baby stay nourished and hydrated.

Sun Protection Gear

Protecting your little one from the sun’s harsh UV rays is essential. Exposure can harm their delicate skin, eyes, and immune system, leading to sunburn and even skin cancer. Equip your baby with sun protection gear like a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, umbrella, and breathable, long-sleeved clothing crafted from cotton to shield them effectively.

Diapers and Even More Diapers

When it comes to packing for your baby, nothing tops the importance of diapers. Ensure a stress-free journey by packing at least one diaper for every hour of travel time for your little one. And don’t forget to take along some extra diapers as a backup - because you can never be too prepared when it comes to your baby’s comfort and happiness.

Diaper Rash Cream

No matter how absorbent the diapers are, your little one’s bottoms is susceptible to pesky diaper rashes, which can end up ruining your fun trip. A travel-size diaper rash cream for babies enriched with the goodness of zinc oxide, chamomile, and other natural ECOCERT/ COSMOS Organics certified ingredients can provide fast relief from redness and irritation. This will allow you and your little one to enjoy every moment of travels without any discomfort.

Talc-Free Baby Powder

A soothing talc-free powder for babies will keep your little one sweat-free and cool on-the-go. Why talc-free? Talc is a naturally occurring silicate mineral. Studies have brought forth the detrimental effects of talc and talc-based products, particularly when used on infants and young children. Therefore, look for a gentle, travel-size talc-free powder for newborns specially formulated with natural and certified ingredients to absorb excess moisture and sweat, ensuring your little one stays fresh and sweat-free throughout your summer adventures.

Lightweight Stroller

Roam around with your little one without any hassle with a compact and lightweight stroller. It is easy to maneuver and transport during your travels. Make sure to go for one with a canopy or sunshade, which will not just ensure a seamless transition from one place to another, but also shield your baby from the sun’s harmful rays. 

Baby Wash & Shampoo

When you are travelling with your baby, make sure to carry a gentle baby wash and shampoo for your little one’s hygiene. Avoid carrying or procuring locally available soaps as it can increase the likelihood of skin irritation. Besides, while travelling soaps get dirty and messy very easily. Opt for a gentle foaming body wash and shampoo for newborns that comes in easy to carry mini travel packs, which will cleanse your little one’s skin and scalp without stripping away its natural oils.

Moisturizing Baby Balm

Follow up with a moisturizing baby balm for newborns to lock in hydration and keep your little one’s skin soft and supple. Baby’s skin loses moisture easily as it is 20x thinner than an adult’s skin, and baby balms are more hydrating than water-based lotions and creams. Opt for a moisturizing baby balm enriched with natural ingredients like coconut oil and shea butter.

Final Thoughts

Your travels with your precious one need not be hectic and the above checklist will guide you in having the essential stuff handy. While packing skincare for your baby, go for travel-size mini packs to avoid overstuffing your bags. CITTA’s travel-size skincare set is formulated with ECOCERT/ COSMOS Organics certified ingredients to keep babies happy, healthy, and comfortable during their little explorations.

Happy travels!
