    While packing for our current Southeast Asia trip, Kim and I once again had to figure out the best way to pack. I knew that I was bringing one of my backpacks, the questions was which one? Could I squeeze all of my things plus most of Lucas' into a 60 liter pack like I did for our trip to Barbados? For a 2+ week trip that wasn't going to happen.
    Our trip would be over double the time compared to Barbados. I decided to bring (give or take) the same amount of things for myself but Lucas would need a lot more clothing, toys and other supplies.

    I decided to bring my 75 liter North Face backpack. When I finished packing my things, there was a ton of space left. I figured after packing Lucas' gear I would still have some space left over. This was not happening. I ended up stuffing diapers in just about any empty space so we could buy as little as possible during the trip. You can see how I packed quite a few into the side water bottle holder in the pic below.

    After I was done packing Lucas had a lot of fun using my backpack as his jungle gym. I never knew that my bag could be so much fun!
    How would you pack if you were traveling with an infant?

    When we traveled to the US with a 4-month-old earlier this year, we found that our large wheeled suitcase doubled as a portable crib if we padded the bottom of it with towels. Now that the baby is over 7 months this probably won't work any more....
