Your baby travelers need a whole lot of stuff! Here’s a checklist of items that make traveling much easier, plus tips on traveling and where to go in Florida this Winter. The weather is in the 70’s and is cool in the mornings. Don’t let the mornings fool you it always warms up. You can pack light clothes for you and your baby. Dress your baby the same way you would dress yourself. I would be always have a light sweater for you and your baby at all times. You can also you bring pants for your child in case it is cool in shopping malls and restaurants if your out all day .

    • Bring a change of clothes for you and the baby
    • Snacks for the baby if they are eating food

Tips

    1. When you get to the gate ask for a clear plastic bag to put the stroller in whe you get to the gate.
    2. You can get a rental car or cab from the airport with a car seat in it for your baby
    3. Check out Do Overz on University a consignment store that has a boutique side with great toys, clothing, and stollers new and used.
    4. Start preparing to pack a few days before you travel. Keep a running list of things to take, or put items out on a table or bed as you think of them.
    5. Be prepared for leaky diapers and baby spit-up on the airplane: Tuck an extra outfit1t or two for your baby – and an extra shirt for you – into your carry-on bag.
    6. Prevent leaks by packing medicines and toiletries in resealable plastic bags.
    7. Pack each of your baby’s outfits in its own zipped plastic bag so you don’t have to hunt around for tiny socks, shirts, and so on.
    8. Take your camera, battery charger, and an extra memory card
