Packing your suitcase step 8. Leave the children’s clothing at home.
If you have small children, paying a little extra to rent or buy what you need when you arrive is preferable to paying cash for checked luggage fees and the headache that comes with it. Car seats, cribs, and other baby gear may normally be rented at hotels, while snacks, formula, and sunscreen can be purchased locally. Diapers are the lone exception. Pack twice as much as you think you’ll need, plus some. It’s impossible to predict when your flight will be delayed.
