We fly out to the US this week and today I had a slight panic attack. I haven't got a list, I haven't even thought about what to pack for the little bird. And I have just days to get organised.
Last time we took her away, we took everything. Literally. Everything. The metaphorical kitchen sink, although in this case it was the baby's bath.
This time is a little different. We aren't driving there (clearly) and although we have a somewhat generous luggage allowance, I'm not taking the baby bath this time.
Last time, I made a list with hundreds of items on it. I started planning weeks in advance. This time I have less time.
In the past when we would go overseas I'd pack a few days in advance. Just toss items into the suitcase (almost literally) and get on the plane. With a baby, it's not that easy.
Having said that, we are going to the US. The home of consumerism. So long as we take the basics, we should be okay. We can buy everything there. That is somewhat reassuring, but I still think I will drag the suitcases out in the morning.
Just to make a start.
Anyone have any advice for our first overseas trip with baby?
