Packing Lists

So, I am a listmaker. I live by my lists! I figured my neurotic listmaking won't be wasted on me, so here they are! I am posting 2 packing lists: one for a 6 month old formula-fed baby (we finished nursing 2 weeks before the trip) and my list for a 1 year old. Keep in mind that the 6 month list was for a December trip and the 1 year list is for a June trip.

Packing List for 6 month old
For the park:
In bottle bag:disposable bibs, bottles w/ inserts, measuring bottle, water bottle, baby food, spoon, baby snacks
In booksack: disposable changing pads, diapers (12), wipes, extra outfit, socks, Desitin, Cortaid, burp cloths, thermometer, nose bulb, Tylenol, baby sunscreen, disposable table mats, lovey, extra pacifier, stroller cover, Oragel, light blanket, Moby wrap
To wear: outfit w/ hat and jacket, mittens, shoes, socks, pacifier on clip
In suitcase: Extra wipes, bottles, nipples, drop-ins, travel formula, baby food, cereal, bowls, juice, spoons, blankets, toys, vitamin drops, baby wash, washcloths, towels, clothes for 5 days (with a few extras), pjs, jackets, socks, shoes, hats, bows, pack-n-play sheets, burp cloths, blankets
Packing List for 1 year old
For the park:

In booksack: disposable changing pads, diapers (10), wipes, extra outfit, socks, Desitin, Cortaid, thermometer, Tylenol, baby sunscreen, disposable table mats, lovey, extra pacifier, stroller cover, Oragel, sunglasses for baby, small blanket, books, toys, Mickey ears, Moby wrap
To wear: outfit, hat, pacifier on clip
For the suitcase:
extra wipes, baby food, diapers, cereal, bowls, spoon, toys, vitamin drops, bath wash, washcloth, clothes for 5 days, socks, shoes, pjs, bibs, hats, bows, rubber bands, pack-n-play sheet, stroller fan, light blanket, snacks
Now for me to explain some of my favorite things on the list. I LOVE disposable changing pads, bibs, and table mats. They are INVALUABLE when you are on the go or moving quickly (changing diapers in a ride, for example). Also, I love the travel formula. This way, you can make a bottle anywhere, and you will need to! They are perfectly measured, and can go through security on a plane without trouble. I also couldn't live without my stroller cover. It kept her warm in the winter and dry in the rain. We kept it on the stroller the entire time because it has a "front door" which zips up.It helped us identify our stroller quickly as well. Finally, the Moby wrap, or some sort of wrap or carrier, is a must for parents because you cannot bring strollers in line with you! This saved our backs from aching!
I hope this helps! See ya real soon!
