Packing for Baby’s First Vacation: Tips 

It’s wise to start packing for baby’s first vacation a day or 2 before your travel, that way you’re not hurrying and you can think carefully about each item you pack. Pack as light as you can, but bring the necessities. Roll clothing to be packed instead of folding it, so you’ll save space. Remember to double check your packing list an hour or so before you head off for your trip.
