If you’re flying with a baby or toddler, you know that needing something and not having access to it would be disastrous.
I have tried to compile a comprehensive list of what you need to pack for your little one.
If you split the contents between the usually allotted 2 bags of carry-on luggage by most airlines for 2 adults and a baby sitting on your lap, you should be able to avoid bringing along a donkey to carry everything!
Several airlines also allow you to take your pram and car chair without counting it as extra luggage. It would be wise to ask if this is allowed when you book your flight.
