The Ultimate Diaper Bag Essentials Checklist for Stress-Free Baby Travel


Are you looking to make baby travel a stress-free experience? A diaper bag is an absolute must-have for parents on-the-go. From diapers to wipes, bottles and toys, a well-stocked diaper bag ensures you have everything you need for your baby when you’re out and about. To make sure you have all the essentials, we've put together the ultimate diaper bag checklist to make baby travel easier than ever. Keep reading for the must-have items you need to make sure you're prepared for any baby travel adventure!

Diaper Cream

When packing for your holiday with your baby, one essential item you don't want to forget is diaper rash cream. It's important to keep your baby's sensitive skin protected and prevent any discomfort while traveling. Baby Brezza has taken the hassle out of applying diaper cream with Finger Shields, which keeps your fingers and nails clean and free of the cream. This innovative product is soft and gentle on your baby's skin, and it's incredibly easy to use. Just slide on the Finger Shield, apply the cream, and dispose of the shield in a resealable package that easily fits into your diaper bag. This method is much more hygienic than using your bare finger or a brush, and it requires no clean-up.

Plus, using Finger Shields is eco-friendly since they use 50% less material than a baby wipe that's typically used for cleaning your finger or brush after applying diaper cream. With Baby Brezza's Finger Shields and diaper cream, you can travel stress-free and keep your baby's skin protected at all times.


One of the most essential items in any diaper bag is baby wipes. When you're on holiday with your baby, you can't always rely on finding a bathroom with changing facilities. Baby wipes will be your savior in those situations where you need to clean up a dirty diaper, dirty hands, or even spills.

But not all wipes are created equal. Make sure you choose a brand that's gentle on your baby's skin and is fragrance-free. If you're traveling, consider buying wipes in bulk to avoid running out of them on your trip.

Pro tip: Always carry a small pack of wipes in your purse or pocket, so you're prepared for unexpected messes when you're out and about with your baby.

Make sure to pack plenty of wipes for your next holiday. Trust us, you'll be grateful for these mess-free, gentle wipes when you're out and about with your little one.


Of course, one of the most important items to include in your diaper bag is diapers. You never know when your little one is going to need a fresh diaper, so it’s important to always have a stash on hand.

The Dante Changing Station Diaper Backpack offers plenty of room to store a variety of diaper sizes, so you won’t have to worry about running out while you’re out and about. And, because the bags feature an all-in-one diaper bag and changing station with exceptional organization, you’ll be able to easily find and grab a diaper whenever you need it.

Plus, our changing station is built-in, padded, and features walls to keep your baby clean and comfortable during diaper changes. And, when it’s time to clean the changing station, it detaches for easy cleaning, ensuring a hygienic changing experience every time. 


Spare Clothes

As any parent knows, babies can be messy little creatures, so it’s always a good idea to pack spare clothes in your diaper bag. Whether it’s a diaper blowout or spilled food, accidents happen, and having a change of clothes can save the day. When packing spare clothes, think about the weather and the activities you have planned for the day. Pack extra layers in case the temperature drops, or if you’re heading to the beach, don’t forget to bring a swimsuit and a towel.

Remember to also pack socks, hats, and any other accessories your baby may need to stay comfortable. It’s better to have too many spare clothes than not enough, so don’t be afraid to pack a few extra outfits just in case. With the Lucia Caddy Tray Diaper Bag, you’ll have plenty of room to pack everything you need, including spare clothes, so you can be prepared for whatever the day brings. BONUS: Lucia come in Graphite or Floral!


Bibs are a must-have for any diaper bag. They not only keep your baby's clothes clean during feedings but can also double as a makeshift drool cloth. The Martine Diaper Bag Backpack has a spacious interior that can easily fit several bibs, so you'll always have one on hand. Plus, with nine pockets, including an insulated side pocket for bottles and a front zippered pocket for storing snacks and toys, you can stay organized and prepared for any situation. The adjustable padded shoulder straps and top carry handle make it easy to tote around, while the stroller loops allow you to hang it from your stroller for easy access. So, whether you're heading out for a quick errand or a day trip, make sure you pack a few bibs in your Martine Diaper Bag Backpack for stress-free baby travel.


One of the most important things to consider when packing your diaper bag for a day out with your little one is ensuring that you have enough bottles and formula or breast milk to keep them fed and satisfied. The Valentina Diaper Bag Backpack has an insulated side pocket that will keep your baby's bottles at the perfect temperature, whether you're heading to the park or out for a long car ride. Plus, the spacious interior and eight pockets mean that you can pack everything you need for a day out, including extra bottles and formula or breast milk. And, with the side pocket for your own water bottle, you can stay hydrated while you're out and about with your little one. The Valentina Diaper Bag Backpack truly makes traveling with your baby a breeze!

Snacks + Drinks

When it comes to traveling with your little one, snacks and drinks are an absolute must-have in your diaper bag. It's essential to pack snacks that are healthy, easy to eat, and won't make a mess in your bag. Choose age-appropriate snacks, like teething biscuits or cut-up fruit, and pack them in airtight containers to keep them fresh.

In addition to snacks, don't forget to pack plenty of drinks, especially if you're traveling in warmer weather. Water is always a safe bet, but you can also pack juice or milk if your little one prefers it. It's best to pack drinks in spill-proof cups or bottles to avoid any mess in your diaper bag.

The ENZO Changing Station Diaper Bag has two insulated side pockets to keep bottles and food fresh. These pockets are perfect for packing snacks and drinks and make it easy to grab them quickly when your little one gets hungry or thirsty.

Remember to pack enough snacks and drinks to last throughout your trip, including any unexpected delays or changes in plans. With a total of 17 pockets, we're sure you'll be able to fit all the snacks and drinks you and your baby need in the Baby Brezza ENZO!


Don't underestimate the power of a good toy to keep your little one entertained and distracted during diaper changes or long car rides. Depending on your baby's age and preferences, pack a few toys that are lightweight, easy to clean, and won't take up too much space in your diaper bag. Rattles, teething rings, and plush toys are all great options. For older babies, consider bringing some board books or small puzzles to keep them engaged and stimulated. It's also a good idea to switch up the toys every now and then to keep things fresh and exciting for your little one.


One essential item that you should always pack in your diaper bag is a first-aid kit. Accidents and injuries can happen anytime, anywhere, and being prepared can save you a lot of stress and worry. 

  • an up-to-date first-aid manual
  • adhesive tape
  • adhesive bandages (Band-Aids) in several sizes
  • an elastic bandage
  • a splint
  • antiseptic wipes
  • soap
  • hand sanitizer
  • antiseptic solution (like hydrogen peroxide)
  • sterile water, saline (saltwater), or irrigation solution and a large syringe for washing cuts
  • tweezers
  • sharp scissors
  • safety pins
  • disposable instant cold packs
  • alcohol wipes or ethyl alcohol
  • a thermometer
  • tooth preservation kit
  • plastic non-latex gloves (at least 2 pairs)
  • a flashlight and extra batteries
  • a mouthpiece for giving CPR (you can get one from your local Red Cross)
  • an eye shield
  • eye wash solution
  • Keep medicines your family might need in your kit, such as:
  • antibiotic ointment
  • hydrocortisone cream (1%)

  • acetaminophen and ibuprofen
  • an antihistamine (anti-itch medicine), like Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin, or store brands
  • extra prescription medicines (if you're traveling)
  • medicine syringes and cups
After you've stocked your first-aid kits:
  • Read the first-aid manual so you'll understand how to use what's in your kits. (If your kids are old enough to understand, review the main points with them.) Read the manual from time to time and check to see if it is up to date.
  • Store first-aid kits out of children's reach but where adults can easily get them.
  • Check the kits regularly. Replace missing items or anything that has expired.
  • Make sure babysitters and other caregivers know where the kit is and how to use it.
  • Check the flashlight batteries to make sure they work.
If you're flying check with your local airport for a list of permitted items. *John Hopkins All Children's Hospital 

    Make sure your first-aid kit is easily accessible and well-stocked. Remember to regularly check your supplies and replace any items that have expired or have been used. With a first-aid kit in your diaper bag, you can be confident that you're prepared for any bumps and bruises your little one may encounter while you're on the go.
