Heading out on a trip with your little one? Don't forget the essentials for their dental care! Whether it's a quick weekend escape or a longer adventure, being prepared is essential. Check out our travel checklist, including must-haves like baby brush, baby toothpaste, and baby gum wipes, to keep your baby's dental health in top shape while on the go! And don't worry, our brush-baby guide doesn't stop at baby dental essentials—we've got you covered in our checklist that covers everything from baby teethers to white noise machines to snacks and beyond!

1. Essential Travel Documents

Before you even start packing, make sure you have all necessary travel documents ready:

Passports/Visa: Ensure your baby’s passport is up-to-date and any necessary visas are obtained.

Travel Insurance: Have a copy of your travel insurance that covers your baby.

2. Baby’s Dental Care Kit

Maintaining your baby’s oral hygiene while travelling is crucial. Here are some must-have items from brush-baby:

Baby’s First Toothbrush: Bring along a small, easy-to-handle kid’s toothbrush designed for infants.

Infant Toothpaste: Opt for a fluoride-free baby toothpaste to keep their teeth clean and healthy.

Baby Gum Wipes: Useful for wiping down gums and early teeth when brushing isn’t convenient.

Baby Teether: Helps soothe their gums and provides comfort during teething.

3. Nappy Bag Essentials

Nappy changes on the go can be tricky. Make sure you pack:

Nappies: Pack enough for the duration of your trip plus a few extras.

Wet Wipes: Multi-purpose wipes are essential for diaper changes and cleaning up messes.

Changing Pad: A portable changing pad will make on-the-go diaper changes more sanitary.

Nappy Disposal Bags: Handy for containing dirty diapers until you can dispose of them properly.

4. Feeding Supplies

Keeping your baby well-fed and hydrated is a priority. Don’t forget these essentials:

Formula/Breast Milk: Depending on how your baby is fed, pack enough formula or breast milk for the trip.

Bottles: Bring extra bottles in case you can’t clean them immediately.

Baby Food and Snacks: Pack easy-to-carry baby food pouches and snacks.

Sippy Cups: Useful for older babies who are starting to drink water or juice.

Remember to pack their baby brush to make sure their teeth are clean after loading up on those snacks!

5. Clothing and Comfort

Having the right clothing and comfort items can make a big difference:

Season-Appropriate Clothing: Be prepared for any weather changes by packing layers. Also, don't forget to pack extras; you never know when your little one might have a snack spill or accidentally get fruity baby toothpaste on their fresh clothes!

Sleepwear: Bring comfortable sleepwear to ensure a good night’s sleep for your baby.

Blankets: Light and heavy blankets for warmth and comfort.

Favourite Toys and Lovies: Don’t forget your baby’s favourite toy or security blanket to help them feel at home.

6. Health and Safety Items

Keeping your baby safe and healthy is paramount, so be sure to include:

First Aid Kit: Include plasters, antiseptic wipes, and a digital thermometer.

Medications: Any prescribed medications your baby needs along with infant pain relievers.

Hand Sanitiser: Keep your hands clean when soap and water aren’t available.

Suncream and Hat: Protect your baby’s sensitive skin from the sun.

Here's a top-tip from brush-baby: Keep your bottles of suncream, shower gel, and baby toothpaste in individual plastic bags. You never know when there might be a squeeze in transit, and you certainly don't want the rest of your luggage covered in baby toothpaste!

7. Travel Gear

The right travel gear can make your trip much easier:

Car Seat: Essential for car travel and often required on aeroplanes.

Pushchair: A lightweight, foldable stroller is ideal for getting around.

Baby Carrier: Great for hands-free holding and navigating crowded places.

Travel Cot: Ensures your baby has a safe place to sleep wherever you go.

8. Entertainment

Keeping your baby entertained during travel can prevent fussiness:

Books and Toys: Pack a few small books and toys to keep your baby occupied.

Music and White Noise: Download soothing music or white noise to help your baby sleep.
