Z goes to HK – Packing List

Voyage

Marta via Compfight

Here’s what I packed for Z for our 4-day stay in Hong Kong.

  • 6 pairs of top and bottom – it’s the number of days plus 2 extras. Make sure that you also have a good mix of sleeveless and long-sleeved ones.
  • Jacket – erratic weather was expected!
  • Hat – or in Z’s case, his Captain America bonnet!
  • 3 sleep wears – I packed the footed, long-sleeved onesies as it was cold in the hotel room.
  • 1 pair of shoes – that will go well with all of the outfits (I’m OC like that)
  • 4 pairs of socks – matching ones, please!
  • 20 pieces of diapers – we didn’t dare expect that we can buy from there.
  • 4 pieces of dry pad – for diaper-changing on the go.
  • Towel – Z uses the ones from Aquazorb.
  • 5 burp cloths – for the drools, spills, and what-nots.
  • Disposable wipes – J&J’s sensitive skincare wipes work best with Z’s bum.
  • Cotton balls – for washing the face.
  • Alcohol – we use Sterilium from the hospital. It’s not as drying as the usual alcohol. And if the doctors use it, it may be effective, right? There are several small bottles in all our bags.
  • Cetaphil – for Z’s hair and body and my face.
  • Cetaphil’s Restoraderm Lotion – for sensitive skin.
  • Calmoseptine – as Z’s bum is not used to being in disposables all day.
  • Paracetamol – just in case.
  • Salinase drops – just in case.
  • Nail Cutter and Nail File – why do baby nails grow so fast?!
  • Dr. Edward’s Water – We bought 3 small bottles which was more than enough.
  • Mosquito Patch – to be safe from dengue.
  • Insect Bite Gel – I ended up using it!
  • Sunscreen – SPF 50 was recommended to us.
  • Organic Oatmeal Cereal – which was put in a 3-tiered milk formula container. The mini containers also served as the serving bowls per day. I just added fresh fruits to the cereal.
  • Spoons – we had 2 heat-sensitive baby spoons from Mothercare.
  • Disposable Bibs – also from Mothercare. Very helpful in keeping the clothes spic and span.
  • Cycles Dishwashing Liquid and Sponge – yup, OC!
  • Bed Spray – you’ll never know…
  • Toy Cleaner Spray – this really came in handy as Z has started to enjoy throwing things on the floor!
  • Toys – we had not-so-noisy ones like Sophie the Giraffe and Panda’s Pals soft book.

Phew! It may look a lot but we managed to put everything in a small luggage along with our own things. Some items are also in the diaper bag and in my carry-on bag. I’m excited to travel again, as I’ll just use this list to pack for Z!
