Mums always carry so much stuff with them. You know... just in case... :) We have to be prepared for everything! When I pack Mia's bag for her time with nanna, I also make a checklist. Just like the majority of bloggers, I make far too many lists. They come in handy though, so it's a good thing. I usually have a list of all the items I need in Mia's changing bag and a list with all her food etc. I usually keep these to myself, to make sure that I don't forget to pack something important, but post-it notes are great to put on nanna's cupboard.
As we're mostly breastfeeding, Mia is used to getting fed wherever and whenever she wants (she is a frequent feeder). No waiting required equals one happy baby. I am not capable of expressing any extra breast milk for her at all, so when she is staying with her grandmum, she gets a 5 ounce bottle of Aptamil Follow On Milk.
So what exactly do I pack for Mia? Well... The list is pretty long, as I like being prepared, but the most important things are: nappies, wipes, toys, sterilised bottle, Aptamil Liquid Follow On Milk, food, spoon, sippy cup and a change of clothes. I also bring her changing bag with some other bits and bobs, but I already wrote a blog post about that and you can read it here (link).
Do you get your family and friends to help with your baby? What are the must haves you pack to make the stay easier?
