Hello. Me and my husband are going on our honeymoon soon and leaving our two children (DD is 1 and DS is 2) with my mum and step-dad. We'll be gone for 5 nights/6 days and I'm packing the kids bags now....
What do they need? Mum doesn't have any kid/baby stuff at all at her house.
Thank you

Well everything they use in a week!
Travel cots, bedding, night clothes, day clothes, nappies, wipes, nappy bags, changing mat, bibs, bottles/cups, whatever they eat from, cutlery, favourite snacks, toys, books, the works!

Over the next week make a note of everything they wear, eat, play with, do, etc and take as much as you can with you.

It also depends how savvy their grandparents are too. I would say any sleep aids are most important. Toy, dummy, blanket, maybe even their duvet, etc.

Could uour parents /inlaws stay at yours so in familiar surroundings for bedtime etc

Be easier not to pack everything and some children sleep well in travel cots

Others don't
