In the Bag: Toddler Checklist

Whether it's a playground visit or a day at the zoo, when packing for a day out with a toddler it's important to bring items that will keep them comfortable, entertained, and safe.

Here's our checklist of essential items to pack for your toddler:

  1. Nappies: bring enough nappies to last throughout the day, as well as nappy bags and cream.

  2. Wet wipes: arguable the most used parenting essential. Have a healthy stack of wet wipes for toileting and cleaning hands, faces and surfaces they'll come in contact with. Shop our reusable Wipes Pouch >
  3. Extra clothes: pack an extra outfit for your toddler in case of any spills or accidents. If they are toilet-training, wrap up a spare pair of underwear and pants (or two) in a waterproof bag.
  4. Sunscreen and hat: If you'll be spending time outdoors, sun protection is essential for both you and your little one.
  5. Snacks and water: bring a lunch box full of snacks, alongside a water bottle, to keep your toddler and your fuelled throughout the day.

  6. Pram: a compact stroller or baby carrier will make it easier to transport your toddler around, and a safe space for a rest when they get tired. Don't forget to bring Pram Straps for a seamless transition from backpack to pram caddy.

  7. Entertainment: pack some age-appropriate toys and books to keep your toddler entertained during downtime or travel to and from your location.

  8. First Aid kit: It's the item you always wish you had when you don't. Pack a basic travel first aid kit (and double check it has bandaids) in case of any minor scrapes.

  9. Hand sanitiser: essential for when you don't have quick access to a bathroom. Shop our Luxe Hand Sanitiser Pouch > 

  10. A backpack to keep everything in! A generous sized nappy bag backpack so you can comfortably carry your toddler's essentials while remaining hands-free for the things that matter. Shop toddler bags > 

Bonus tip: keep items in separate pouches (like our Luxe Pouches) for quick access and organisation.
