I just realized that packing baby stuff is difficult when traveling. While we practice packing light when we’re traveling, things are just different when traveling with baby. I can never compromise her safety and comfort when it comes to her needs. On our last trip, I made sure she has more than enough diapers, clothes, blanket, formula (although I still breastfeed), distilled water and baby bottles. We brought the whole house literally, as you can see on the photo from the previous post. The baby has the biggest bag!
One of the things that made the bag bulky is the Chicco Sterilizer. It’s a must to bring this. One officemate saw the sterilizer when we’re unpacking and she said that there’s a portable bottle sterilizer that can sterilize 4 bottles instead of 6 or 8. It’s just small so it’s convenient for traveling. Had I known that there’s one, I should have checked it on stores.
Other options I thought of before our trip were to use a sterilizing solution or sterilizing tablets from Chicco, but I’m still not convinced that it’s safe so scratch that. Another option is to buy Avent Tempo Nursers or Playtex Drop Ins but Jeff didn’t approve because it uses plastic liners and it’s also not good for baby and environment, plus it’s expensive.
So I guess my option is to buy a portable bottle sterilizer to save me from carrying a bulky one. I hope Chicco has portable ones too, I like this brand because of the warranty and electronic parts are readily available just like lcd projector bulbs replacements which can be bought anywhere.
