  • Don't forget tylenol and gas drops! Other than that and what you listed above (obviously you know food lol) I can't think of anything special

  • snacks if she is able to have them(like gerber graduates items) bottles with water(put formula separate and make as needed); books; toys; Tylenol, otherwise you pretty much have it covered.

  • Don't forget that special 'lovey' if she has one! And more food/formula than you think will need in case something unforseen happens (been there, done that!).

  • I always pack a small make up bag with tylenol, a thermometer, nail clippers, and oragel. I'd also recommend getting some baby disposable wash cloths that way you don't have to pack the baby soap, one less bottle to worry about leaking and I wouldn't want to use hotel linens on the baby. Take a few extra baby blankets and sheets for the play yard in case of a spit up, leaky diaper, etc. Don't forget to take a few toys. If you are going to be very active, you might want to take an umbrella stroller along too.

  • We like to bring a small playpen which can double as a bed.
