Travelling Toddlers



    Travelling with babies or toddlers is one full production. There is no such thing as "travelling light".  One must not only cover the necessities but must also provide for the what-ifs. 

     The husband has been telling me that I always overpack for my two boys. I always say, better safe than sorry. I have already embraced the fact that the smaller the kids are, the bigger their luggage. 


     Here is my travel checklist for a week-long travel :







     NOURISHMENT

  •     14 Bottles

  •    Sterelizer & Brush

  •    Joy Anti-Bacterial Soap

  •    Milk

  •    Wilkins

  •    Drinking Cups for Water

  •    Feeding Bowls and Spoons

  •    Electric Kettle


   PERSONAL NECESSITIES
 
  •    Hooded Towels (2 pcs)

  •    Hand Towels (24 pcs)

  •    Cloth Towels (24 pcs)

  •    Face Towel (14 pcs)

  •    Diapers

  •    Shampoo

  •    Soap

  •    Lotion

  •    Alcamforado

  •    Baby Oil

  •    Vicks

  •    Mosquito Repellant

  •    Sunscreen Lotion

  •    Anti-Itch Cream

  •    Zinc Oxide

  •    Powder

  •    Small Dipper 

  •    Water Heater

  •    Wet Ones


   MEDICINES ETC
 
  •    Nebulizer

  •    Vitamins

  •    Paracetamol Suppository

  •    Dulcolax Suppository

  •    Asthmavent Nebules

  •    Combivent Nebules

  •    Meptin/Bricanyl

  •    Heraclene

  •    Disudrin

  •    Alerkid

  •    Montelukast

  •    Erceflora


  FOOTWEAR
 
  •    Crocs

  •    Rubber Shoes

  •    Sandals

  •    Socks (12 pcs)


   CLOTHING (BASIC)

  •    14  Shirts (For Going Out)
  •      7  Pants
  •      7  Shorts (For Going Out)
  •      7  Pairs of Sando and Shorts 
  •      7  Pairs of Shirts and Pajamas


   CLOTHING (OTHERS)
 
  •    3 Jackets

  •    2 Raincoats

  •    Angry Birds Hat

  •    Swimsuits

 
      Not included in the above-list is their day bag for the actual travel which would already contain milk and bottles good for four (4) feedings, some snacks and a change of clothes.  

      Of late, I no longer bring their sterelizer. I heeded my friends advice and would just wash them properly and sterelize using boiled water. 

        Did I miss anything ?
