I have been compensated by Johnson’s® Baby for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.”
Travel can be both exciting and stressful at times. Take for example the first time I took my kids on a road trip to Williamsburg Virginia. The drive down to Williamsburg was easy enough, but the night we checked into our hotel displayed just how important the comfort of home is to a toddler.
If there was one thing I learned during that trip, is that kids function best when you keep them on their set schedules. I have created the best Bathtime Essentials Travel Kit to help bring the comfort of home on the road. This kit includes my kid’s favorite bedtime bathtime soap and lotion from JOHNSON’S®.
There is something about this specific combination that really helps my family relax after a full day of travel. Through the years I have experimented with many travel kit container options. To date, none have been as flexible as an old baby wipes container. After having 4 kids I have my own stockpile of empty plastic containers that I use for numerous things around the house.
One of the best-kept lifehack secrets has to be the functionality of this wipes container and how effective it is in containing any possible leaking accidents. Traveling always has its risks and sometimes our luggage doesn’t do so well in the transfer from check-in to carrousel pickup. Keeping your liquids in this container can help minimize the harm that could befall your luggage contents when accidents happen.
I like to fill my container with small bath toys, qtips, cotton balls, and any other small bathroom essentials I think my family will need when we travel. I suggest you pack that container until everything is nicely packed to help secure the bottles in the container.

- JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Baby Lotion
- Optional – Add in your child’s Favorite Nighttime Book
Bringing small things like their favorite toy and favorite pairs of PJ’s can make a world of a difference your child. The JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Bath time Soap and lotion duo are also a wonderful option to use. I know you’re probably thinking how could I still be using baby soap and lotion on my now preteen boys, 5 and 9-year-old. Simply put, we love this brand and we love their products, especially these.
Please note: Johnson & Johnson do have full Travel Kit’s you can purchase that are TSA Travel size friendly. I always bring a checked bag when I travel so I am able to pack full size products for my trips.
I love how it helps my kids wind down from an exciting day at the park as well as relax in an unfamiliar bed. Traveling doesn’t have to be stressful, bringing some small comforts from home on the road really helps infants and toddlers adjust to all of the excitement.
