Approximately 1.5 years of infant travel under my belt, these are my favorite gadgets to have on or near my person while traveling with my boy. These things make my life easier and I highly recommend them for any family traveling (by plane, train or automobile) with a newborn or infant. Here they are!*

This long piece of stretchy fabric is perfect for newborns. I used it until CC was about 6 months old. It kept him super cozy throughout the 4th trimester and he would basically pass out whenever I plopped him in there.
When CC started being able to crawl out of the boba we upgraded to a 360! This thing is not as cute as the Boba but it is freaking awesome. My husband can wear it, the baby can nap while facing inward, be entertained by the world facing outward, or we can even wear him on our backs which is great for longer journeys on foot.
Makes it easy to pour out pre-portioned servings of formula for clean bottle making on the go.
Baby backpack > shoulder diaper bag. Just as many pockets and compartments but I wear this on my back, baby on my front and my hands are free for eating/shopping/phoning.
I keep all the diaper things in the large pouch (diapers, wipes, vaseline, ointment) and any wet or dirty clothes in the front pouch. The bag keeps any messy blowout clothes contained! I use these bags daily not just on trips and love them.
Medela hand pump
Pump on the go while away from baby easily and directly into a Medela baby bottle. Wet dry bag for pump parts too!
Medela bottle cooler
Store pumped milk safely for 6+ hours when using the included frozen gel pack.
