    Hey! First of all i cant help but brag...

    I am going to Hawaii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOR SIX WEEKS!!! at least!! wooooooop!!! :happydance::happydance::happydance:

    Sorry - i had to get that out!

    But the reason for the post is, I cant take tom's catheters, milk, nappies and food - I will have to buy it all out there. I doubt very much they have Cow and Gate out there - so what are my choices? what do you recommend?

    Here they sell Similac, Nestle (Good Start), Infamil (sp?), and maybe some others ones depending on where you go.

    Hope you have a fab time! Sounds fun!

    We use Enfamil Gentlease for Charlotte, works really well. It's for fussiness and gas, they have one for frequent spitter-uppers (AR) and just regular Enfamil as well.

    Get a whole bunch of your normal C & G and ship it to yourself in a box to your hotel. Insure it (in case it gets lost or damaged thats expensive stuff.) And give the hotel a call to make sure they have your box before you go :)

    I use Enfamil for Lola-Rose,and never had problems with it.:)
    They do have Cow & Gate and Nestle so the choice is pretty wide.

    Have fun in Hawaii!

    I found this...

    Some people use those vacation services that will buy all the stuff for you and ship it to where your staying... but they add convenience charges etc...

    I found this little tid bit just now, noticing the sticker shock comment for Hawaii travelers like you... not sure if that's even meaningful considering the differences in our economies.

    Going in Jan/Feb for 6 -10 weeks. I am considering getting everything shipped to LA as the cost of his catheters (5/6 a day) could be as high as the shipping cost. I will look into that travel lite thing tho! Thanks!
