In our last blog, we talked about Basic Needs
Here’s our family basic needs:

  • Food and drinks, eating/drinking equipments and tools:
    • Food – Logan is 16 months, so he’s fine eating whatever we eat. But we need to bring his eating tools
      • Utensils – fork and spoon (multiple sets! we have lost ours before when he threw it on the floor and we forgot about it)
      • Plastic bowls for cereal (we are terrified he would break porcelain bowls at the Airbnb)
      • Plastic plate that we travel around with in our diaper bag
      • Bibs!
      • Travel high chair (which we are renting)
    • Drinks
      • Water bottles
      • Sippy cups
      • Milk (buying this when we get there)
      • Water (buying more when we are there)
    • Snacks:
      • Applesauce pouches
      • Cookies/biscuits
      • Pretzels
  • Healthy and warm
    • Winter jackets
    • Sweaters
    • Hats
    • Long sleeve shirts
    • Pants
    • Dresses (for our princess)
    • Pajamas
    • Socks
    • 1 pair of shoes
    • 1 pair of boots (who knows what weather we will get)
    • First aid/Emergency kit (bandaids, baby and kid tylenol, etc.)
    • Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, body shampoo, shampoo, bath rag)
    • Vicks
  • Rest
    • Travel crib (we’ve bought it years ago when Lena was a baby and we were traveling back and forth Chicago and St. Louis, if not, we would have rented a crib)
  • Making your young children feel safe and secure
    • Their blankies
    • Their sleep/nap friends (Logan sleeps with an elephant that vibrants and project music)
    • Sound machine (rented)
    • Her pillow
    • Baby monitors (she knows she can talk to us through the monitor)
