    I would pack a couple more nappies for the flight in case of delays ect. round it up to 20. Maybe a pillow a small one if possible or even a normal size one to use a matress across your laps for her sleeps if thats where she will be sleeping. Um I don't know what else.

    Are you planning on buying nappies over there? Maybe go check out the prices of nappies over there compared to here

    nappy wipes. I would also use a change mat (or cloth nappy) to put under bub on the change table. Be warned, there is not a lot of room to change a bub in airline toilets and the pull out change table is usually in an awkard position. But you'll manage!

    ETA - Enigma, you might like to check out the thread "silly question?" which discusses the dangers of using baby powder. You might prefer to use cream instead?

    A change of clothes for yourself in case you get anything icky on you. Yasin did a poop on a plane that leaked out of his nappy onto me once - gross!!
    They have blankets on most flights so if they're not security blankies maybe you don't need them - i just put a wrap between yasin and the plane blankets.
    If you're formula feeding you might want to have a think about how many bottles you'll need.
    You can get some brands of formula in stick packs - its much easier than measuring although SIL has a special formula carrying thingy that has compartments and you put pre-measured forumla in them.

    ah yeah!! A change of clothes for you! I got vomitted all over when we landed in Auckland and had to wait until we got home in Brissy to change... I smelled soooo bad. LOL
    With the bottles, the airline will put them through a very hot dishwasher for you, so if you want you only need 2 bottles
