Baby’s Weekend Away

This weekend both my husband and I are going out of town and our little man is staying with his grandparents overnight for a couple days for the first time! I think it will be a great weekend for all of us. In order to get ready to go I’ve had to think through not only packing for myself (and our dog who will also accompany our little man to grandma and grandpa’s) but our sweet boy as well. Here’s my recommended winter packing list for baby (he is currently 9 months- and yes, I think this list definitely varies depending on age). Ok Mamas out there.. any “must haves” I’m missing?
