Ergobaby, water, packaged crackers/snacks, diapers/wipes, baby motrin. done deal. bring what you need, but do travel light. less to carry , less to keep track of. we did bring pre-packaged milk - like nonrefrigerated juice boxes full of whole milk.
If you babywear, then definitely bring a carrier...but I'd still bring the stroller. My daughter got tired of being in the Ergo at 12 months. Plus, with the stroller you can take her to dinner and she can go to sleep, not as easy in a sling.
