The first time I ever traveled with a nursing baby was when my family went to Thailand when my son was 6 months old. I had no idea what to pack and ended up not packing very smartly. I was so pre-occupied with making sure I had all my breast pump parts and extra bottles (which I didn’t use once) that I forgot more important things, like nipple ointment. We traveled with a lot of extended family and I didn’t feel comfortable nursing in front of them without a nursing cover or proper nursing clothes (which I didn’t pack) that I ended up sequestered in our room for a lot of the trip. That’s not how I envisioned exploring Thailand.
Traveling while nursing a baby can be a new experience. You may be traveling away from your baby and need to pump on the go or you may be traveling with your baby for the first time. There are a lot of items to consider bringing either way. I’ve compiled a list of items that are helpful based on my experience traveling with nursing babies. (Contains affiliate links.)
