Checklist for international travel with baby ( 9 months to 1.5 yrs)

I will come straight to the point. I started international travel when my Son was 9 months. We were travelling every 2 -3 months and we used to be in new place and new countries.   So it became really really important to have all his things packed. Here is a checklist I used for all my travels between India, UAE and Uganda.

I would like to give some credit here. I had huge help all this time travelling from my mother, air hostesses, strangers and almost everyone around us. Those days are gone when people used to be annoyed with babies now days most passengers are very caring and go out of the way to help. Even now when my son is 4.5 I am thankful to all those people who are interested to talk to him while travelling and listening to his stories. It is such a relief and in those few minutes, we can get some work done or just relax.
