Hi all~ I am traveling with my hubby and our 6 month old~ she is traveling in my lap...should I bring a car seat for the taxis rides? is there a place to rent them? I am bringing a travel bed for her, and a easy to fold umbrella stroller...anything else I should bring? Also I make homemade baby food, I am pretty sure that I wont be allowed to bring it across customs....is there gerber babyfood to buy there? diapers?
Any suggestions as far as how much warm/cold clothes I should bring for her? Anything I might not think of? This is not only the first international trip with her, but our first major trip!!!
Ling and Sons carries all your baby needs. You can order some stuff on line b4 you go and it can be delivered to your room. Its also a good stop to make on your way to your hotel.
A few suggestions for babies..lots and lots of sunscreen, an umbrella you can attach to the umbrella stroller, sun hats, blow up baby float, sand toys you can buy at ling and sons, don't know about car seats, I have teens, rooms get cold with a/c, so think about blankets, lots of swimsuits and coverups...if I think of anything else I will post it...cindyo
You can rent an car seat throught the car rentals if you are renting a car. Im also having trouble finding a place to rent a stroller and porta crib. Last year I just used the hotel crib but it was awful. I may end up having to bring some things unless someone knows of a place that rents baby gear?
I forgot to reply to you Melissa (my name is Melissa too)other questions. I brought my baby at 3 mths old to Aruba and he's now 26 mths old-this will be his 3rd trip to Aruba. I found that I always packed too much for him. Especially at 6mths old-they don't need many clothes at all-as long as your baby girl is not a big spitter! brought my own formula & breast pump and sm.bottle cooler w/the ice packs -that was key for the beach. I do remember seeing plenty of baby food at the grocery stores. I also brought my jogger stroller w/the car seat that attached and it worked out great. I could take it on the beach and park him under the hut and he slept right there. Definitely bring your infant carrier-its great for restaurants too. Bring swimies,diaps, a sunshade tent or extra baby umbrella, a baby hat. I also brought an infant float for the pool. Its alot when they are young-now that he's 2 I dont need any of that stuff! Im on my way the 20th-27th. Have fun!
