What to Pack on your Suitcase & Handbag When Travelling with a 4 Year Old & 8 Month Old

We went on a one week trip to andaman last week. When i mentioned that on my social media, i got so many mails and messages to share how i managed to take a 4 year old and a 8 month old on this trip and what all i packed. So thought of doing this post and few other post in which i will share what all food i packed and my experience.


1)I packed all of the kids swim suit and accessories in a plastic bag so it will be handy when needed.

2) Then i packed all the kids dresses in ziploc covers. Since their dresses are small it will surely mess up. So packing like this will keep them separated and it will be easy to grab when in a hurry. Also i put the dirty clothes back in the same cover. This way it doesn't get mixed with other clothes.

3)All the dresses are packed like this

4)Make sure you carry rain coats for kids

5)Diapers are take from their packet and placed on the side of the suitcase, this way it doesn't take much space in the bag.

6)I packed his handy multi cooker from prestige for making porridges for mahima. It was so helpful. You can even make rice or anything in this. Such a useful product to have on hand when travelling with kids.

7) Pack up some snacks and porridge mixes for mahima.


I always carry a notebook and pen.

 a hair brush

Wet wipes

To keep maha busy, i took few of these wipe clean books which i got from amazon. Maha loves it so much. She is using it for more than 6 months now. Here are the links to buy them.



I bought a small pack of colour pencils and crayons.
