We are almost at the end of this year and it calls for a vacation. A vacation to our nest, miles and miles away. Like everyone says, a baby changes everything (oh boy! EVERYTHING). Years ago, travelling to India was all about shopping, packing and watching endless movies in the flight. This time it wasn’t the same like before. Unfortunately, my husband could not travel with us for many reasons and it was just ME with an active toddler. The thought of it had made me dread the day of our travel.
I started off with a list to carry for journey as I had to keep in mind about all the circumstances and be prepared for the worst (like flight delays, missing flight). Anything could go wrong. It’s better to be prepared than to cry over spilled milk!
At 17 months, she needs a lot of space to move around, she couldn’t stay put at one place and icing on the cake, she was just not comfortable having her food as she is used to the booster seat.
As per our baggage allowance it was a 10-kilo check-in bag for Little D and a carry-on bag (diaper bag) for each of us. I will mention below what I packed in our bags for a clear picture.
