If you’re travelling with a baby you’ll be surprised at the extra gear even such a small person requires. And while some items, such as diapers, are a no-brainer to bring along, others may not come to mind so easily.
Before we started a family, my husband and I shared a passion for adventure travel, and made a concerted effort to plan an annual trip. That didn’t change when we had our baby girl. We had the goal of travelling abroad with our daughter in her first year of life, and though we knew it would be challenging, in the Winter of 2014 we set off for 70 days in the South Pacific when Maya was just ten months old.
Pre-parenthood I could be pretty last-minute packing for a hike. All that changed when the baby came along. Normally accustomed to just packing for myself, I now have to consider what my daughter will need out on the trail. To make it easier to get out the door, I now have a kit prepared for when I’m bringing the bambino. So, what’s in it?
