Back-Pack Leashes are always a must pack!

We are definetly pro back-pack leash. Different children need different things. DS11 never needed one, he would always stay by my side no matter what (still does), DS4 is a wild man and will bolt at the first opportunity. DS2 has non-verbal autism and does not respond to his name when called-talk about scary! To be honest, I double-dog-dare anyone to give us snide looks/rude comments for protecting our children. People need to mind their own business.

Wow-didn't mean for that to be grumpy-it just came out!

I also really like the vinyl/flannel table cloth idea for sitting squares. I was able to find some Christmas ones for our next trip. I was thinking if I cut a piece to fit the length of DS2 it would make a great changing pad! Who knew these tablecloths were so versatile?

We also use the dog tag on a chain but i feel much better knowing the tattoo is there and its not going to fall off or Im not going to forget to put it on him one day, like a sticker or the dog tag. Its perfect for us!!! Just a thought....
LOVE this!!! Where did you get the Mickey Mouse ones from?

I will be honest and say I haven't read the entire thread but here's my contributions-hope they aren't repeats.

Body Glide-skinny or not-something ALWAYS rubs and chafes.

Ziplocs-great for storing snacks, keeping electronics dry and a million other things.

Pre-printed contact info labels-We put them on anything my DD buys with high hopes if it's lost some kind soul will find it and return it. Happy to report this led to more than one happy ending.

And carbabiners-I use them to attach everything to me or my backpack-like my refillable mug for instance.

Stitchfan73- Where did you find the body glide. Tried to find it at walmart and they looked at me really strange and brought me to the condoms..........Explained what it was and they then showed me Gold Bond and such. Ended up with Monkey Butt it is powder and worked Ok but would like to try the body glide
Thanks

You can buy it in Sporting Goods stores. I have seen it at Dick's Sporting Goods and Sports Authority.

ETA: Found it on Amazon too - http://www.amazon.com/BodyGlide-Body...8390638&sr=8-2

Good luck!

ClaraBelle is correct-they sell it at most sporting goods stores-but it's a bit expensive ($10)-so Amazon might have it priced a bit better.

We use for legs (well I do ) but also for our feet to help avoid blisters and to break in new shoes

I just walked thru one of our Walmart's last weekend and body glide was in an aisle in a fairly good size bin near the health and beauty aid section...

Thanks to all! I just went to amazon/body glide and found it. It was $7.99 but $5.25 for shipping. I'm gonna try a sporting goods store and Walmart again before I buy from amazon. Maybe save a few $$

Now I know what the packaging looks like and hopefully I will find it.

Great tips!
