At the beginning of September we took our 13 month twins on a flight to Morocco from London Gatwick. It was a three and a half hour trip and was at night so we obviously packed for this scenario. We used our Pacabod oban as their carry on and there was plenty of space. Myself and my husband combined our carry on so that we only had two bags between us, it just made getting through security so much more simple.
We obviously packed the standard nappies, nappy bags, wipes etc. We packed around 16 nappies, that was mainly because we also packed for the journey down there. 8 nappies each but we definitely didn’t use them all.
We then packed sudocreme, hand sanitiser and a special sterlisiing sanitiser which is baby safe and non-toxic. Its by aquaint and I bought a big bottle off Amazon because the small ones were really expensive, I then decanted it in to a smaller spray bottle.
We packed snacks for the plane but they didn’t really eat any of them, obviously because it was at night. We just packed non-messy snacks, no meals because they ate dinner in the airport before we took off.
We also packed bibs, dummies and their sippy cups so that all practically bases were covered!
We also brought them some entertainment in the form of two plastic dinosaurs which was great for them to chew on! We also grabbed two little cuddly toys with a rattle for a bit of entertainment! We also packed two books that were small just for a little bit of extra entertainment!
We also packed a few spare change of clothes for them. They were wearing short sleeved rompers to begin with and we also packed two short sleeve vests, two long sleeve vests and two sleepsuits, just for all eventualities!
I also packed a muslin cloth, you never know when you’re going to need one of those! Dotty loves snuggling in to them to sleep and of course it makes a great breastfeeding cover up.
Finally, we packed them their sleeping bags. I didn’t know how cold the plane was going to be but in the end we didn’t use them. I don’t have a photo, but we also brought them swaddle blankets and that’s what we covered them with when they slept.
So there it is, that’s all we packed! I don’t think we would have needed much more than that even if it was a day time flight. The girls tend to entertain themselves and they enjoyed looking at the tv on the headsets!
Hope you enjoyed this post.
