So I am from Canada, my husband is from mexico. We are going to visit the family for 2 weeks with dd1-(7) & dd2-(2) in Mexico. I have not gone since we went with dd1 when she was 1 and she had diarrhea the whole month we were there despite antibiotic treatments, etc. and when we got back she was in the hospital for a week, thank god i was still breastfeeding!!
I have been to scared to go, but I did not know as much as I know now. I am planning on taking grapefruit seed extract, 10 drops a day for me and 1 for the girls. I am cooking all of their food and boiling bottled water and we will be taking probiotics too. Any suggestions on grapefruit seed extract? I want to wash the food with it as well, how much should i put in how much water? or should I use iodine? Also, i want to take the car seat for dd2, dh says we dont need to. I dont even know if I will be able to put it in, and I don't know how many different cars we will be driving in. With dd1 we did not take a carseat. So much to think about, doesn't really seem like a vacation for me! Just a lot of worrying and work.
