Since the holidays are very close now, I wanted to share with you what I do carry with me when traveling with my little one to see my grandparents for a day or visiting my in-laws for the weekend.
- 3 outfits
-one shirt and pants
-3 to 6 pairs of socks
2. 2 sets of PJs
3. 4 to 6 disposable diapers (for a day out) 8 to 12 if you’ll be spending 2 days away from home (it also depends on how many diapers your baby wets a day)
4. 2 to 3 bibs
5. 2 to 3 burp cloths
6. Baby bath gel and lotion
7. One towel
8. Baby’s analgesic (prevention)
9. 2 wash cloths
10. 3 of your baby’s favorite toys
11. 2 blankies
I already have a one year old and I’ll also have to take his toothbrush with me now. Ha ha! If I’ll only be gone for a day I usually narrow the list to the things that I will use for sure, like clothing, diapers and toys.
Note: My baby had sensitive skin from the beginning, so I use a little soapy water (more water than soap), when I change his diapees. I like to carry a small spray bottle with me for that.
The list can definitely be very different if you’re going to a cold weather destination. But I live in a tropical Island and our “cold weather” varies from 70° to 60°’s if you go to the countryside (at the mountains could be a little bit colder though. We call that cold because all year long we hold a very hot weather (90’s to 100°).
Some day I might tell you all how it is to live here in paradise. 😉
If you found this list helpful, or you want to add something to it, I’ll be soooo happy to read you!
