Ok, I need a grip, or failing that a very long list.
We're going to Greece on Saturday, first time taking DTs abroad, wibble.
We're staying in a hotel with some self catering facilities, hiring a car with toddler seats (hopefully!) the other end.
What do I need to take? How easy is it to buy decent nappies etc? I keep sitting up in the middle of the night and thinking things like "CALPOL!!" Anyone got a super amazing list I can use for inspiration?
Sunblock Mosquito repellant patches First aid kit including calpol and Imodium Sleeping bags to sleep in if they use them Hats Not sure about nappies in Greece specifically. Do they need anything that needs sterilizing? Pacifiers? Bottles? Bibs Small books and toys (you could buy cheap inflatable pool toys once there if you are having a pool/beach hol). Small bottle of that travel laundry detergent if you need to wash a few things urgently. Sling/s? If you have them in a double buggy you will prob need to fold it up when going through security so you need to control them at the same time. Their drink bottles.
I have twins and been takin them abroad away since 8 Months, went to Greece aged two. Swim nappies, I find are not always available locally. Take calpol on plane ( check is under 100 ml or take sachets). Spare clothes on journey for you all not just kids in case spillage etc.
To be honest I take everything I may need, Inc nappies and wipes. I don't want to spend my holiday shopping for nappies. Other people buy on arrival, it depends on your preference.
Some small cheap new toys to surprise them on flt or hols. Teetha (not just for teething but chamomile so helps soothe and settle if fractious for no apparent reason) A packet of colouring pencils and easy coouring sheets (and keep back plain for just doodling) storybook - handy for cuddlign into mum/dad if delays at airport any teddy or similar that is a favourite - just to have something to cuddle even if not normally taken to bed etc
