10 days in France, DD is 4months with reflux so is sick/gets through a fair amount of clothes. What have I missed? What can I ditch?

bbygros, vsts , outfits etc - you can rinse them thru and if it's hot - just a nappy will do!

You can buy nappies in France y'know.
And ditch all the babygros and vests and most of the outfits. If its hot you wont' need vests and babygros or most of the cardigans - and she will prob wear the same few cute outfits all the time. Muslins? Just take a few and wash them. Does your accomodation not supply blankets, you won' tneed those AND a sleeping bag. Cut down the selection of toys.
When we took ds1 to Spain for 8 days the three of us - dp, me and ds1 had combined luggage of under the allowance for one person.

with ryanair, you can carry on one piece of hand luggage per adult as well as your checked on baggage.(10kg max I think)You could easily get everything you have listed into a rucksack if you roll it up tight. Don't forget that you need to decant your sudocreme into a small tub to take as hand luggage (the one from the bounty pack is ideal)

I never got a bounty pack. Am only packing nappies for the journey and have halved number of clothes I am taking for her, can just wash. Am impressed at packing for 3 less than 15kg!

It's the milk cartons that are heavy and I don't know if it's readily available in France.

Can't you use powdered milk for the duration of the holiday to lighten your load a bit?
