Our First Family Vacation to Puerto Rico! / by Erin Baynham

Photo courtesy of Caribbean Journal Okay guys. Not going to lie. My anxiety is through the roof! We're going on vacation with the baby, and the thought of a four hour flight and being away from home without our essentials makes me craaaaazy nervous. Don't even get me started on Zika. I have so many questions to search for:

  • Do I need to bring a car seat?
  • Is it smarter for me to travel with formula or buy it there?
  • Do I need to drown my family in bug repellent?
  • What's the best sunscreen for baby?
  • How will his sleeping be affected?

I've got three packing checklists from around the web, and I'm dedicating my weekend to packing and cleaning. Whew. I was able to conquer a lot of my baby fears, so I know everything will be okay.

On the other hand, I'm getting more and more excited day by day! I don't want to think about work, cleaning the house or adulting during the entire trip. When we get back, I'm printing out all of my pics and making small scrapbook dedicated just to for the vacay (at least that's what I'm telling myself). If you have any tips for traveling with baby, please share!
