Taking an Infant
I am in the process of planning our second Disney Trip. You guys were so helpful last year that I figured I would ask for help again.
We took a 4 year old and a 1 year old last year in September and it was fantastic! I know that some people think that the 1 year old was too young but she everytime she sees her little pink princess Disney ears she starts saying "Mi-i Mouse" so I know that she remembers. Of course, our 4 (now 5) year old talks about it all of the time and cannot wait to go back. As far as my husband I go, it was by far my favorite vacation. Mommy was more relaxed and laid back than ever and we had wonderful memories. Also, we went the week after Labor Day and it was fantastic! We never waited more than 15 minutes for any ride and most of the time we walked right on and rode them over and over.
Ok, anyway, on to the questions. This year we will have a 5 year old, 2 year and a 2 month old. We certainly do not mind working on the 2 month old's schedule and will go back to the resort when he/she needs the break. We will also be taking our own stroller again to save the $$ and to ensure the comfort of the baby being able to lay in the car seat and have the umbrella over her/him. So . . .
1. Do you have any tips for keeping the baby cool? Most days we were fine but there were a couple where it was pretty hot. We bought the little fans that sprayed water and we pushed liquids on the kids last year but I'm not sure how to keep an infant cool and since the baby will still be on formula, I want to make sure that it stays hydrated in between feedings.
2. Last year we also carried our 1 (now 2) year old around in the baby backpack thing. She loved it and usually ended up falling asleep when she was in it. I was wondering if anyone used anything like this for an infant. I was afraid that the baby might get too hot.
3. Any other infant tips will be greatly appreciated.
