  1. >The amount of stuff you need to bring with you is INSANE. We're taking L on vacation for 10 days and I'm dreading the packing!Have a great time at CC!

  2. >Wow!!! It is crazy how much stuff we will pack for our little ones! Have fun and good luck on your trip!

    >Wow is right! In a week we are leaving for 8days and I am scared it won't all fit!

  4. >Are you staying in a hotel? They probably have a PNP. We could find one or a crib everywhere we went in Argentina, so I would check first.If you have a sink, you can wash a bowl. You'll have to wash them anyway, so you may as well just bring one and wash and re-use.Probably can cut back on the clothes and toys.Since you'll be in a new location, everything will be interesting to Shane and less toys will be needed.You could use just one hat every day.We never had anything like a Boppy and never needed it either. Just used pillows from the hotel.If the booster is for eating, you could just hold him.I don't know what what A&A blankets are…but we had one bright ABC one for the floor and 2 small ones for travel if it was cool.Those are my suggestions for 'cutting down the list'. We had one carry on suitcase for the twins things and if it didn't fit in that ONE suitcase, (plus their diaper bag) we didn't bring it.You'll be fine. Good Luck!

  5. >Oh one more thing. We never brought baby towels as the hotel towels were perfectly fine, BUT we did wish we'd brought washcloths as Argentina doesn't seem to use many! However, since you are in the USA, I doubt you'll have to worry about that.I say skip both of them.
