Packing for Beautiful Bangladesh

Updated: Sep 30, 2019

Below is the new and revised packing list for our one month trip to Bangladesh, which includes one week in India.


A few lessons learnt from India….

- No cloth nappies only Pampers bought en route in Bangladesh itself.

- No breast pumps as baby 7 months upon departure and I had basically stopped pumping.

- No travel towel (all hotels gave me towels).

- I now realise I went a bit over the top in terms of baby clothes especially with warm clothes, hats, tights and socks (temperature around 28 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees Celsius in Bangladesh in September) but not too much of a problem as her clothes pack down very small.

- I myself went with one change of clothes and bought new Salwar Kameez when I arrived.

- Only took one pair of sandals, no hiking boots and didn’t miss them. Could well have given the socks a miss too.

- I also topped up with small sized washbag stuff and medicines upon arrival.

- I also panicked it was the monsoon and took a raincoat and umbrella, rarely used and not needed.

- Upgraded to next size Koodi bed but without the blow up mattress part. We used the thin mattress without a sheet with no problems (the blow up mattress only gets holes eventually and the pump is just another thing to carry).

- As baby now weaning, bought as much baby food as I could carry and stashed it in Dhaka.
