Okay, I need some help from all you parents who have traveled to Ethiopia to pick up your children. I am preparing packing lists, and need to know what things are important, what is nice to have, and what isn't really necessary. If you could help me out with both baby and adult related items, I would be much appreciative.
Besides the obvious, here are some of the things I have on my list.
basic cold/flu stuff
snack/comfort foods (how much is really necessary?)
baggies for soiled items
baby carriers (sling and Bjorn)
lots of clothes
crib bedding (for hotel crib)
lots of blankies
bottles (are the ones with disposable liners the best, to reduce washing?)
formula (any specific kind that the babies are used to?)
Bouncy seat? (would this be nice to have for the hotel room, and nearby restaurants?)
We are hoping to stay at either the Hilton or the Damu. Is there anything else we should bring that might be specific to these locations, or that I am missing? I appreciate any advice!
