    For sure bring your baby type car seat. Great for carrying baby around airport, going out to dinner, sitting on the beach, .........

    how old is your daughter?
    does she need particular food? formula?

    will she have her own seat on the plane?

    do you have a car rental and do you need a car seat?

    are you staying at a timeshare or hotel resort?

    You'll do just fine bringing her to Aruba at a young age. My daughter has been going since she was months old also. She's now six and cant wait for her two times a year that she gets to vacation there. If I could suggest one thing it would be bring a spray bottle to spritz her down and keep her cool while your laying out and enjoying yourselves. My daughter always loved it when she wasnt in the water. Any more questions feel free to ask.

    so you are good to go!

    if you can manage in your packing a "pack n play"
    while you make "camp" at the beach
    the pack n play will be ideal for the baby, (for naps and sitting around in it in her car seat)
    i do know that the hyatt has portable cribs for in room guest use, but i do not think they have the pack and pplays.

    since your 3month old isn't traveling around on her own yet (crawling, scooting or walking) it might suffice to have her on a blanket on the beach instead of a pack n play. my concern is the occasional gust of wind and therefore blowing sand on her.

    anywho......park yourselves under a palaypa, and you wil have a blast.

    don't forget to bring the swim diapers.
    the ones in aruba are very expensive.

    most restaurants are baby friendly.

    traveling with a 3 month old is easier than a 3 yr old :-)

    Here's an idea for you..bring one of those 3.99 blow up pools with you. Sit at the edge of the sand and fill it with a little water. Throw it out or pass it along with to another family.
    Do not leave the child in there though unattended..
