For travel gear that may not fit in your diaper bag, please visit this page.
- Portable changing pad (***)
This is definitely essential for both in the airports as well as on the airplane. We like our JJ Cole Collections Changing Clutch.
- Diaper (***)
Double the amount you will usually need for the duration of the travel just to be on the safe side (e.g. in case of flight delay). We stuck in the Los Angels airport for an extra 4 hours on our way back and used up all the diapers that we thought we would not need.
- Baby wipe (**)
