@MrsMaryK2016 - baby powder removes sand in a big way. Don't hesitate to use it in excess when leaving the beach!
We leave Thursday AM for a week at my Mom's over Easter in Illinois. Here's hoping the long car ride goes well! Here is my packing list, can you think of anything I am forgetting or should add? Nora is 4.5 months.
For the car-ride:
Toys she can play with in the carseat
Diaper bag with all the usual stuff (diapers, wipes, cream, pacifier, bags for diapers, extra outfits, burp cloths, soft books)
For staying with my Mom:
Pack and Play - will use for sleeping and a safe place to put her when needed
plenty of outfits - we will be able to wash clothes as needed at my moms
play mat, small toys
soft-structured carrier - we have a lille baby carrier
Portable White Noise Machine (Thanks @jsmai )
Manual Pump and a few bottles in case we leave her with my mom to go out.
We are not bringing the stroller, to save space. A cousin might have one we can borrow or we'll baby-wear
Is there anything obvious I am missing? Also, Should cotton footed sleepers be comfortable for her in 70 degree weather, or will she be OK in just a onseie most of the day? Having a late fall baby in Michigan, I have no idea how to dress her for warmer weather.
Has anyone stayed in Niagra falls? Either US or Canada side?
Time to pack - we leave Thursday! Trying to figure out everything we all need for 10 days and fit it into 2 suitcases and carry ons is proving to be a challenge.
