    Hi friends,

    I will be travelling to India next 10 days, so I am packing all my things. I would be travelling with my 2.5 yr old DD, so am worried a bit what else to take in cabin bag. (other than usual things like tickets and passports:))

    I have taken the following things already, if at all you think anything else is necessary to carry, plz suggest:

    -1 pair of her and my dress
    -Some amount in Rupees as well as $$
    -Contact #s of important- hubby, dad, etc
    Extras Like:
    -some spare cotton
    -Baby wipes tissues
    -a comb & some clips and hair band for DD
    -Some crayons and a small book for her

    Please suggest me what food items I can take for her. I prefer taking apples, some biscuits and bread. She has allergy for egg so I can't depend on Airline food as they gave Egg for child meal while coming to USA.

    Looking for suggestions.. Plz reply....

    Diapers - you may not need this if she is potty trained
    a portable dvd player in case ur daughter gets bored
    i take some snacks like pori, some chappathi, curd rice for her
    u may want to apply some vicks to the cotton, so that it will be good for her and help to prevent ear pain
    any emergency medications in small bottles

    If you are very confident, dont take diapers, otherwise, having a few will not do any harm. one or two small pack of milk. I never find in London, brussels etc. airports, especially in the morning hours, will need it so badly as dont prefer coffee/tea. Bread sandwich/fruit/b.fast bars in a ziploc bag. fever reducer/pain reliever for both of you. Extra pens, printout of yr passport details/POI card so that dont have to take it out while filling out the form.
