Set Yourself up for Diaper Success

Portrait of a Baby Lying on a Bed

Don’t get caught tearing your carry-on luggage apart or rooting through an overflowing purse in search of the diaper necessities—diapers, wipes, thin, foldable changing pad, and disposable baggies. Have the whole kit ready by placing everything in a small canvas sack or large zip-top bag you can remove easily when it’s time for a diaper change. The changing pad or liner is a key item for air travel, because not every airline offers changing tables in their lavatories—you might have to get creative with where to change your baby. Avoid surprises by asking a flight attendant about the arrangements when you board or early in the flight.

About Katie Quirk Dunyon

I'm a married mom of two living in Seattle, WA. I have a seven-year-old little boy, a first grader! He's a fairly reserved kid and all about Legos and building sets. I also have a little girl who turned three at the end of February. She's a tiny thing but a big ham; we call her our clown. They're a lot of work but also a ton of fun. I love to eat, cook, and run (in that order). But at the end of the day, give me a spot on the couch and a little bit of TV or a good book, I'm done!
