extended trip with cloth
In the next week or so we have to go out of state to take care of my little sister that we found out has breast cancer and she requested me to come help take care of her while she does her treatments and stuff. We live in Indiana and she's in Texas and we're planning on driving down there. We'll be down there for at least two months, possibly longer.
I've traveled with cloth before when we moved from Texas to Indiana 2 years ago so we had everything with us anyways plus our LO was pretty young and our stash was really simple then. But now I'm trying to make sure that we'll have everything we need for our trip there and our long stay.
Here's a basic list I've got so far, please help me out if you can think of anything else diapering related that I've might have missed.
- 1 dozen prefolds
- 1 dozen BG diapers (mainly for the car trips back and forth)
- 1 dozen fitteds
- 1 dozen infant prefolds (used as inserts)
- wet bags (both travel and our lg wet bags)
- 5 wool covers (these are being made right now by the awesome Growing Baby Green and should get to us before we leave)
- wool pants (for night time)
- wool soakers
- lanoline and wool wash
- detergent (this will be home made by me)
- drying rack
- butt/diaper rash cream
- diaper sprayer
- laundry pins
- wipes wash
- wipes warmer
It feels like so much but I'm afraid of getting down there and not having everything I need for him. Is there anything else that I'm missing? Any advice? I have to admit I'm feeling a little overwhelmed but I hope planning all this out will help make it go as smooth as possible.
I am now blessed to be a SAHM to my 3 LOs R (1/1/99), E (4/7/02) and L (4/8/09) and very lucky to be with the love of my life where not only is he the father to my children but my best friend and hero. I follow a celtic pagan tradition and I'm becoming crunchier by the day. I enjoy knitting, sewing and making things with my hands.
