Two adults, Two kids, one week, one suitcase...the boys are packed (still have to do the diaper bag)...We are also bringing two car seats, snap n' go stroller, and the umbrella stroller...
My trick? Load the suitcase with diapers so you have room for new stuff on the way home.
ps. we have a washing machine where we are going...so I am taking the BARE MINIMUM...and of course my diaper bag will be loaded with extra outfits, blankets, et cetera.
I didn't need: sleepers for the baby, so many burp blankets (I had 8 blankets, I only really needed 4), Shampoo, soap, more than one change of clothing (we went shopping on the first day, so 3 days of clothing for myself and my husband was overkill)
I wish I had remembered: Advil (for me), Baby cold medicine (Coryzalia), Prescription hydro-cortisone cream
Couldn't live without: excema cream and oilatum...the carpet in the condo gave both kids a rash...
Next time: Larger carry on, since people with babies get on the plane FIRST, you can bring a decent sized carry on and not worry about overhead space...next time I will also pack snacks in baggies NOT TUPPERWARE (why I transported tupperware to Florida and back, I am not sure...I guess because I hardly ever use baggies)
I learned: To put a burp blanket on my three year old when in the car to catch barf. I learned this the hard way on the drive to Legoland. Also, Legoland is closed on Tues and Wednesday (we showed up on a Tuesday, who knew?)
