    Red face Does this sound enough for a week?

    I always over pack - always!

    We went on two holidays last year with DS and I took far too much stuff, so this time I have been very strict when packing DS bag but now I am panicking that it is not enough .

    So this is what I have packed for 7days/6nights:

    6 tops for day time
    4 pairs of shorts
    6 singlets/tshirts for night time (will be hot so he will just wear with a nappy)
    4 pairs of socks
    1 all in one rashie outfit for beach/pool
    1 rashie hat
    And I will pack his cotton hat when I find it.

    Is that enough clothes?

    We will be staying in a self contained unit with a washer and dryer so if he vomits on everything we can do laundry!

    TIA

    If you have a washer dryer then that should be more than enough. I would also pack one winter outfit and a jumper JIC

    Sounds pretty good seeing as you have a washer & drier in the unit I agree with the PP about a winter outfit or a light jacket just in case.

    Might pack a LS spencer for him then, the sunshine coast in January is almost always stinking hot though!

    But you never know hey.

    Whenever we are staying somewhere with a wahser and dryer I only ever pack 2 outfits, a couple of singlets for really hot days and a warm outfit. You really don't need any more than this if you have a washer and dryer in the room.

    Naiwen- I'm the same. I pack for all occassions. Cold play clothes, hot play clothes, cold restaurant clothes, hot restaurant clothes than you've got hot/cold pjs, swimmers, hats/shoes and jackets to go with each outfit! I'm terrible!

    What you have got there sounds like a good pack! A sensible one! Well done!

    Thanks it's good to hear I am not the only over packer around .

    The crazy think is that there are heaps of great markets and shops where we are going, if we were going to the outback for a month might be different LOL.

    I'm an over-packer too Better to have too many choices then to be stuck with not enough.
