We leave for Maui in 2 1/2 weeks (WOOHOO!!!). We are planning on renting a car, will be bringing our own car seat, stroller, pack and play etc. for the trip.
I need advice on MUST HAVE items to bring both for the filght and the trip in general. H got a TON of summer clothes in his current size for his birthday, so we should be set there. I probably need to get him some new sunglasses and I still need to get some sunscreen. What else do we absolutely need? Any ideas for keeping a 1 year old entertained on the plane for 5 hours if he doesn't sleep?? Our flight leaves in the morning .. (DH wants to get a portable DVD player..although he doesn't watch TV at home, so I don't know how long this will keep his attention) What about good snack ideas to travel with?
And lastly how do you baby/toddler proof a condo/hotel ... what have those of you that have traveled done? DS is SO curious and loves getting into cupboards, outlets, drawers etc. and once he knows something doesn't have a lock that's the first place he goes ..how do you keep them out of things they aren't supposed to in the room?
You ladies always have great advice..so thanks in advance!!
