    Laura from Bristol Asked

    We are travelling end of may with a 7month old, What is the best advice on bringing or buying nappies? What would reccommend about sterilising bottles we use microwavable steriliers at home so would it be worth bringing that?where could we use a microwave

    Hi, Laura! I would love to buy a nap. Even if it's just for 5 minutes. (What's a nap going for these days?) I jest. In my house, we call 'em "burpies." I know, so much better than "nappies," eh? But I believe we're talking about the same thing: cloth diapers/burp cloths, right?

    We brought our own burpies with us. Our boys tended to be very particular about how their burpies were broken in. Also consider this: bringing your own with you won't add that much heft to your suitcase. With Disney's Magical Express, you really don't have to worry about your luggage once you get it to the airport. The next time you'll see it is in your resort room.

    Next up: bottles. Each park has a baby care center. You can hook a baby up here - a fresh diaper, bottle mixing, quiet downtime... the list goes on.

    When our youngest was 6 mos. old, we utilized the baby care center. We cut some corners with bottles on the front end too. Rather than traveling with jars of formula and worrying about acquiring water/mixing/cleaning out/sterilizing bottles all the time, we bought several cases of pre-made bottles and had them shipped down to our resort (along with diapers, wipes, baby food, etc.) Diapers.com is an awesome site for this. They can ship directly to your resort. When you arrive, you pick them up from the front desk.

    The pre-made bottles were an incredible time (and sanity) saver. When the kid got hungry (waiting in line for an attraction, during dinner, en route somewhere, etc.), we'd shake up the bottle, slap a nipple on it and let him go to town. No bottle prep to worry about. When he was finished, we'd put the nipple in a ziplock bag and toss the bottle part in the trash. The only thing we had to clean were the nipples, which we would clean nightly in the sink (bring dish soap and a dish wand with you.)
