Travel on Advance Parole

Heather Poole, a flight

I try to keep my airline carryon as light as possible. Nothing wears me out faster than trying to juggle too much stuff on the trek through the airport. I carry everything in a backpack to keep my hands free for the kids. My favorite airline carryon is the Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack


Make sure you understand and follow the TSA Guidelines regarding Liquids. If you are travelling with formula or expressed breastmilk, it can be helpful to print and bring a copy of the TSA Guidelines Regarding Liquids for Children and Babies.

Baby Essentials
  • Two times more diapers than you would typically pack in your diaper bag. You never know what the air pressure will do to little tummies. Plus wipes and a few disposable changing pads.
  • Any medications you or your child might need on the trip (you don’t want to risk losing them in checked baggage). Don't forget to write dosing information on the bottle, and separate any liquids into your ziplock.
  • Plastic bags for diaper disposal or soiled clothes
  • For toddlers and older children, consider using a CARES Airplane Seat Harness on the plane, rather than bringing a carseat. The less you have to carry, the better! If you are travelling with a car seat, or with the CARES system, make sure to bring documentation demonstrating that it is FAA approved.
  • A change of shirt for you and your child. For babies, you may want spare pants as well.
  • PJ’s for your child if you expect them to sleep on the plane. Putting on PJs will help set the stage for sleep.
Utility and Safety
  • Passports and travel documents (babies and children are required to have a passport of travelling abroad, but not required to have ID for domestic flights). It's useful to have emergency contact numbers as well.
  • It’s useful to attach a couple of carabiner clips to your bag. They always seem to come in handy
  • Any important documents (passport, immunization or medical records, etc)
