Packing Lists 2017-09-11T21:28:34+00:00

I love packing lists.  I love seeing what others take with them on their trips.  It’s like a sneak peak into their bags that I can’t get enough of.  I also think they’re practical when I’m visiting a new place or trying out something new and don’t know what to pack.  This little bit of advice can make or break a trip by preparing you for what is to come.  I’m ever so grateful when people write up complete and comprehensive packing lists and I feel more at ease when I follow their advice and have a great time wherever it is I may be going.

So here are mine!  I’ll be adding to them along the way so be sure to check back to see what I’ve been up to and what new information I have to share.

Best Strollers for Travel

When I was putting together my baby registry it was really important for me to find a stroller that wouldn’t be huge and clunky. Not only did I not want to have a huge stroller to lug around day-to-day, but I didn’t want something that would be impossible to travel with. I knew that travel with a baby would add [...]

Carryon Packing List with a 3 Month Old

In August Andrew and I flew home from Texas to New York to visit family. I was a little nervous about how it would go both because it was his first time flying and because it was my first flight looking after a tiny human.

What’s in My Newborn Diaper Bag?

What’s in a diaper bag? Never once, before having Andrew, did I think about this. Even when I was a nanny, I just kind of threw things into a bag, or it was already packed for me, and we were ready to go. This time I found myself researching Google and Pinterest trying to find out EXACTLY what I needed to put in my diaper bag.
