Going away this weekend, what do we need??

Yeah long weekend for us Canadians!! We are going to the trailer with our 6 month old and it is the first time we have gone away for more then 1 day. I do not know how much stuff I should be bringing with me. We tend to pack to much for ourselves, so I am sure we will do the same for our dd!!

Any suggestions on how many outfits to bring per day and any other things you may think we may need?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!!

What do you use at home? How many outfits do you go through? How many diapers? Toys? Books? I'd just pack based on that plus some extras just in case.

Sometimes 5 outfits, sometimes less!! I guess I could just take an average for each day. Any item you forgot while traveling that you wish you would have taken with you? Just thought of one a thermometer!

On trips, I bring two outfits for each day (one back up each), extra pajamas, and about double the amount of diapers that you think you might need...because it's always when you might not have enough that they have poop marathons.

Trailer like camping trailer? Pack and play for sleeping, bug spray (i spray in my hand and wipe on legs and hair/ears. Not on arms and face cuz they can rub it into their eyes.) baby sunblock. How ever many outfits she goes through a normal day plus one just in case. Same as diapers

Yes on the trailer and we are going to look for some natural bug spray and suntan lotion before we go. Thanks for the advice on putting the spray on!

Where are you going? Have fun :) We are staying home for the long weekend. My kids are off school today and Monday but we are working on our garden and going for miniature donkey rides LOL

I would think about what you use in a day now, and bring a few extra outfits.
