This packing list really helped us get prepared for traveling with a baby. In order to calculate how many diapers and wipes you may need for traveling, I suggest keeping a log or tally sheet each time you use a diaper and wipe for the same amount of time you will be traveling. This helped us figure out exactly how many diapers/wipes we needed. Then add in at least 50% more diapers/wipes to make sure you have enough!

What other items would you recommend for this packing/travel list?
