You need to take care of a lot many things than you have ever thought. The little munchkins require extra attention especially when you take them with you for a trip or a travel. If you miss any of the essentials of your baby while traveling, the discomfort he would feel will surely get on your nerves.

So if you are planning your first trip with your baby don’t forget to keep the following things in your baby’s bag:
