Our Go-to Packing List for Those Last Summer Trips with Baby
Ah, summer. It's time for days by the pool, barbecues with friends and family, and of course, trips to get there! Whether you're near family or not, most people end up on a plane sometime during the summer. But with the presence of a little one on your trip, you'll need a literal bag of tricks to deal with whatever comes your way.
The Baby Cubby wants your travels to go smoothly, which is why we have a great assortment of trusty diaper bags, including our new line of Birdling Bags. For anything from an overnight stay to a more extended vacation, you need something sturdy, making Birdling your go-to brand.

But what to pack in said bag of tricks? It depends on the age of your child, but we here at The Baby Cubby did a brainstorm of some traveling must-haves for your diaper bag (aside from the obvious ones, like diapers and wipes). Whether in a car or on a plane, here is the essential packing list for your summer trip(s):
- Anything by Lucy Darling, including their sticker sets and adorable travel primers (These are great, because they're all about travel!)
- An Oball for the perfect quiet, but effective, distraction
- 1 small little Mary Meyer stuffed animal for cuddles and company
- Baby Banana teething toothbrush, enjoyed by teethers and non-teethers alike
- A Saranoni Luxury Mini Blanket perfect to soothe and calm your baby so they'll take a much-needed nap en route
- Plenty of little snacks to satisfy the munchies
- A Manhattan Toy Company fabric book for when you're getting desperate at the trip's end
