Packing List for Babies
Packing List for Babies—CLICK
HERE for a printable list
Over the years I've
packed literally hundreds of suitcases. However, I do not have
children and I'm a novice at packing for them. Jackie Preston has
come to the rescue.
suggestions from Jackie's pediatrician for her 22-month old son's
(seasickness or restlessness)
Other things Jackie
plans to bring:
pool side robe
For the flight, the
pediatrician suggested giving Jackie's son his sipper cup during the
airplane's take off and landing.
Kim Cornelius suggests
bringing along an umbrella stroller for walks around the ship and in
port with your baby. It also comes in handy at the airport. Wheel
baby right to the departure gate—the
stroller is gate checked and will be waiting for you at the arrival
notes that with limited/expensive laundry facilities on ships, it's
convenient to bring along a pack of 'Bibsters' (disposable bibs for
mealtimes, available at grocery stores, Target, etc). They keep
baby's clothes cleaner and stain free, avoiding messy garments after
meals. The last thing on Stephanie's mind while cruising is doing
Arlene Morgan adds a unique
item to the baby list....blue painters tape. She says, "I know it's
odd, but I have found it to be a source of amusement for the kids as
well as practical. It can be used for fun and also safety, ie:
taping over electrical outlets, tv buttons, taping up the days
artwork. It is much less damaging than stronger silver tape."
I would like to extend a special THANK YOU to Jackie, Kim,
Stephanie, and Arlene!
