    Default Boca Chica - Diapers

    My daughter is bringing my grandson on our annual vacation and because he doesn't get a seat on the plane, they are only allowed 1 bag between them. Is there somewhere in BC where she can get toddler diapers? What about baby formula?
    Thank you

    Ole Supermercado is a five minute drive from the airport heading towards Boca Chica.

    please.... diapers are available in every shop, pharmacy and colmado. you can even buy them by one. formula is a different story, depends on what you use. by far the most popular is baby milex, similac, enfamil, nestogeno, nan pro, isomil, alacta. others may be more difficult to get.

    no worries. my advice is to buy everything in DR. pampers by a bag - sold individually are often not so clean and hygienic. not that they go over something very clean and hygienic, mind you
    formulas, both liquid and powder are easily available in small and big cans (about 350 and 900 grams).
    use only bottled water for making a formula, people swear by agua orbis (also in all pharmacies, shops and colmados, about 80 pesos per galon).
    all medicine for kids (just in case) is available over the counter - syrups, supositorios, drops, you name it.

    whatever you do not use can be given away upon departure, i am sure it will be appreciated. even one pampers and little leftover formula...
