  • Gripe water, wipes, sunscreen and a bit of extra cash to buy a cheepo stroller when you are down there. Have a blast!

  • I wouldn't. Travel conditions are less than ideal right now in Mexico, health conditions are not great either, I wouldn't take a baby or even a small child to Mexico right now.

  • Those were my thoughts exactly. I honestly didn't want to go because of the water and I didn't fel uncomfortable. I got talked into it.

  • Have you heard about the killings in Mexico recently? The tourist attacks? The drug-related violence? The state-issued travel warnings? Mexico isn't safe right now, especially for American citizens. While I've been there in the past (when conditions were better), I wouldn't do it either - and I couldn't be talked into it. Even more, I couldn't be talked into putting the safety of my children at risk.
