6. Baby Blankets

South East Asia comprises diverse countries with varying climates, from tropical to more temperate regions. Baby blankets can be indispensable in providing warmth and comfort, especially in areas where the temperature may drop unexpectedly or where air conditioning can be quite cold. Furthermore, custom baby blankets (and similar alternatives) can serve a multitude of purposes during extended flights or road trips. They can function as a snug cover for peaceful naps, provide extra cushioning for enhanced comfort in car seats or strollers, and even act as an improvised privacy screen for breastfeeding.

7. Emergency “Just in case” kit

Although with this, do not stress and overdo it. You can pack this if you are a first-timer in Southeast Asia and you don’t have information on their medical care. With the emergency kit, you can include mosquito repellents, pain relievers and anti-constipation medicine for the baby.

8. Baby boys pyjamas

As a parent you will need to be comfortable at night. To make the baby less disturbing, you will need to have good pyjamas that are not too fitting. Boy pyjamas are the best to consider packing.
