GettyRemember the days when you could pack for an overnight trip in five minutes flat, with your biggest concern being to remember your lip gloss and deodorant? Now that you're a mom, packing has taken on a whole different life form! Diapers, toys, outfits, more outfits, snacks, books, more toys, more outfits ... ACK! How can something so cute and so little require SO MUCH STUFF?
Traveling for the holidays (or any time of the year)? Let this list of overnight essentials for toddlers and preschoolers be your guide. (Oh, and don't forget to pack some lip gloss and deodorant, mom! Still essential, for you, and, um, everyone around you!!)
Diapers or Disposable Training Pants
A good rule of thumb for toddlers and preschoolers is five diapers or pull-ups for each night away from home. This way you'll be covered in case of any stomach troubles caused by eating food your kid is not used to, but you don't have to haul the entire big box from Costco.
