Ahh! Traveling with twins!
Adventures of Traveling with Twins
By Patty Kulich
When flying with 6-month old twin infants, and a husband, I totally recommend packing two separate diaper bags, one for each baby. Since my husband and I had to sit in different areas of the plane, it was critical we each had everything we need for the flight. I gave him our (practical) Skip Hop Duo Deluxe (http://www.skiphop.com/product/23000.html) twin diaper bag. And I traveled with my fun Tory Burch Jaden Tote (http://www.toryburch.com/p-113959-JADEN-TOTE.aspx?cid=741) So yummy…
Here was a list of our must-haves for the plane:
PLENTY ’O BOTTLES: Enough for the length of our trip plus an extra meal in case of delays. I pre-measured the powder formula and put in bottles ahead of time. We bought bottled water at the airport (past security) to mix on the plane.
LRG ZIPLOC FREEZER BAGS: A woman’s best travel friend. For dirty diapers, clothes, used bottles, etc. Bring like 5 of them!
3-4 TOYS: To suck on, play with, etc. Small ones to keep them preoccupied.
PACIFIERS: Great to suck on for take-off and landing for pressure changes
MUM-MUMS or TEETHING BISCUITS: great for them to suck on when irritated
POWER/CLIFF BARS: For you silly!! You’re going to need to eat too! And you won’t have time for much else.
2 OUTFITS EACH: They’re going to get messy. It’s inevitable.
CHANGING PAD: Some planes do not have changing tables! Gross! And you may have to change a baby on a closed toilet seat! Ewwwwww!
8-10 DIAPERS: You never know… you could be delayed for hours.
TRAVEL WIPES: You’ll use up the whole pack! Trust me.
WET ONES: To wipe down dirty surfaces & clean hands. Planes = filth
SWEATSHIRT: Baby will get chilly on the plane in-flight
BLANKET: To cover baby if cold, or cover him from bright light
CELEBRITY SMUT MAGAZINE: For you of course. A guilty pleasure while they nap…
Sleeping peacefully (while you read your magazine)!
