It dawned on me this morning that next week is Thanksgiving and I am going out of town with my little guy for 6 days.  Did I mention I have yet to travel with my little guy any longer than a few hours and never overnight?  I figured this would be a great time to put together a list of what needs to come with us when we're heading out of town overnight.  I spent a few days jotting down items I use for the care of my little guy on a daily basis and determined what I need to bring and what can stay home:

  1. Pack n' Play--Unless the place you are visiting has a place for you little one to sleep.
  2. GoPod & Toys--My GoPod is the fold and go version of an exersaucer that I recently reviewed (I bought it because it was easy to travel with).  My guy isn't quite old enough to play with toys regularly but they are a welcome distraction for a short term if needed.  
  3. Diapers--In my case, I cloth diaper so I also need to bring detergent to wash the diapers and my wet bag to store the dirty diapers.  I also use cloth wipes so I will need those and the wipe solution I use.  
  4. Clothes--Both the basic everyday onesies and jammies and those outfits I've been saving for special occasions (and because I just don't see dressing my up to hang around the house.)  I also want to be sure not to forget bibs and, my favorite daily accessory, baby socks.
  5. Breast Pump & Accessories--Just because I'm out of town I need to keep up my schedule to keep my supply up.  Also, I am hoping to take advantage of free grandparents babysitting while we're there so I will also want to pack a couple of bottles.
  6. Everyday Baby Basics--Things I use regularly and don't want to be without like burp cloths, swaddling blankets, baby vitamins, a blanket for tummy time and pacifiers.  
Now, my little guy is just 4 months old so I am sure this list will evolve as he grows and his needs and habits change.  And this list doesn't even touch what I need to bring for myself or my two dogs.  Which leads me to believe I should probably start looking for a larger car...
