WHAT TO PACK IN CARRY ON BAG: Flying with Toddler & Kid, Logan + Lenora Weekender

Here are the travel essentials we pack in our minimalist carry-on bag for flying with our 1-year-old toddler and 6-year-old kid. The Logan and Lenora Weekender is the perfect carry on tote bag for our family of four! ⭐️Shop all Logan + Lenora waterproof travel bags:

I mostly pack drinks and snacks plus clothes and blankets to keep us warm. It is possible to have a smooth flight with young children while bringing on board minimal toys! We break up the flight by eating snacks and getting up to walk the aisle or use the bathroom. We are about to take our 10th flight with our one-year-old daughter, so we speak from experience!

Empty, the Logan + Lenora Weekender weighs 1.5 lbs, the way I show it packed (including both the travel potty and laptop) it weighs 17 lbs.

When I get on the airplane I put our carry on bag under the seat in front of me, with my double zip clutch inside. That way our in-flight essentials are easy to access. My husband and I put our personal item backpacks in the overhead compartment.

Aloha! We are a worldschooling family traveling the world full-time with two young kids. We are George, Heidi, Kaisho (6) and Harumi (1). Our home base is the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. We’ve been living a nomadic lifestyle for the past 12 years. Once we started traveling, we just wanted to keep on exploring!

We like to make new friends, eat local foods, and immerse ourselves in culture. We strive towards a natural, minimalist, zero-waste lifestyle. We’re not perfect, but we keep trying!
