I looked through past threads to see if this had already been done but didn't find anything. I know some link to websites via their iVillage profile, but thought this would be handy.

Sure, first a couple of questions, How long is the flight for you? What's a boppy? Will there be a time change?

She'll probably be off formula, which will make your like easier, you can get milk anywhere. I strongly recommend renting a condo or suite with a kitchen or at the very least a refridgerator. 3 meals out everyday with a one year old is no vacation for anyone. Much easier to do brealfast and lunch in your own space. Decide who will stay in for naps or if you can attempt napping on the beach, the preferred alternative. I think it's easier to travel with a toddler in diapers than a newly potty trained one - you don't have to search for bathrooms or worry about accidents and clothing changes. More later, answer the questions and I'll post more.

You can also take them to WalMart or Target and scan them onto a disk, if you don't have the negs or a scanner. It gets expensive, though...in the long run it's probably worth it to just buy a scanner.

I haven't researched it thoroughly but I think the flight is about 6 hours and one or two time zone change.

Condo/suite with fridge/kitchen are all good ideas. Thanks.

A boppy -- is a doughnut shaped cushion generally used for breastfeeding. You put it aroudn your waste and you can use to prop up the baby. I didn't buy it because I thought I'd just use pillows. After weeks of backache and pillows constantly falling down, I went and got one. I LOVE IT!!! It's the best thing EVER for breastfeeding an infant. My dd doesn't BF anymore, but she still lies on it for bottle feeding, and for napping.

I LOVED our boppy pillow! In fact, I still have it, and my son is almost 10! We got it as a therapy thing for Joel but it was just the most useful thing....he used it for many activities during a lot of stages of his life. I'm really happy to see that the price has dropped. I got one for a friend a few years ago and it was only like $30. I paid about $50 for mine! (Yipes!)

$50! Yikes. I paid between $25 and 30 for mine. I agree -- it's multi-funtional -- aided in the "football" hold, helped when my dd learned to sit, used for cushioning during tummy time... now she uses it like a pillow when she naps. I take it on the plane when we travel -- it's something familiar and we can use it when she's feeding-- makes it easier to do in those cramped airline seats. :-)

I just threw together a new photo album with a few pics of Don, the kids, & me on July 4th. I'll be adding to this soon, I hope. We went camping at the beach last week and both left our cameras at home, so we don't have any pics from that.

Anyway, just thought I'd introduce the new kidlets that I've been spending so much time with.

So now I have finally got everything figured out and built a site...I figured this was probably the most logical thread to stick it in. So here goes

Thanks to you and Laura for the sites. Just one question, how'd you guys get your pic's so much bigger and clearer? Some of mine are tiny, and I selected large. Did you use a digital camera? Maybe that's it, I just had the photo shop scan some existing phot's, maybe I should figure out this digital camera and put it to use.

Mine are all digital, that's why there aren't any of the adults yet...we seem to take mostly scenery and kids these days. I think that might make the difference, because with digital pics the actual full size is much larger than the largest possibility on ivillage, so even the largest size is effectively shrunk.

BTW, I checked out your site a while ago and forgot to say how gorgeous they were! So how often are you in Italy? We have hardly ever made it there (once in milan for a long weekend) even though we lived so close for years.
