Traveling with a baby is fun...and what I mean by fun is,
"HOLY SH-T you have to bring a ton of crap!"
Now some might say travel light...but I am of the people that say:"better safe than sorry".
Car ride...different than.... plane ride.
Car ride...can entail more stuff because you have no restrictions except space.
I was not going camping or traveling to the middle of no where...so I knew if we NEEDED it we could find it.
As I realized quickly, if you can rent an apartment or score a washer/dryer....do it.
So worth it with a wee little one.
Not going to write the whole list of what we brought..
If ya really want some more specifics on clothes, food, products feel free to email me.
Here are SOME of my MUST HAVES:
LOTS OF WIPES
Ziploc or just recycle plastic bags from the grocery store or drugstore
when you are in a hotel room or someone's home it is smart to bag a dirty diaper before throwing it away. You don't want the whole place to...well, ya know where I am going with this....
