5 carry-on essentials for every mom

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summertime is here, and that means lots of traveling! From family reunions to girls weekends and short road trips, this summer is jam packed with vacation.

Packing for trips used to be as easy as throwing a few cute outfits and deodorant in a suitcase. But everything changed when I had kids. Now I worry about making sure we bring enough diapers and fresh changes of clothes. One thing I don’t have to worry about? If our luggage will survive the trip. Atlantic Luggage makes traveling so much easier. These suitcases are made for families on the go and are lightweight, easy to maneuver, and stylish, which makes it so much easier to haul everything through a busy airport. Right now Atlantic Luggage is giving away a family trip for four to Orlando. Talk about a dream vacation! Enter the Trip to Orlando Florida Sweepstakes by filling out the sweepstakes form.

What would I pack if I win? The same essentials I pack for every trip. Through lots of trial and error, I’ve made my list of five carry-on essentials for every mom:

carry on bag essentials

Hand sanitizer. Airports are gross places, so I bring a pocketsize antibacterial gel to make sure everyone stays clean.
Underwear for everyone. You never know if your luggage will get stuck somewhere else, so I always pack an extra pair of underwear for everyone in my family, plus lots of diapers for the babies.
Snacks. No matter if you feed everyone right before you leave the house, something about airports and airplanes makes everyone in my family hungry. I always pack simple snacks like granola bars and fruit snacks so we don’t end up eating junk in the airport or making a late-night run to the store.
Comfortable shoes. I like to keep a comfy pair of shoes handy just in case I need to make a quick dash. Again, you never know where your suitcase will end up.
Toothbrush and toothpaste. Instead of rummaging through a checked bag once we get to the hotel late, I like to know right where things are. Fresh breath makes everything better.
