11 ESSENTIALS FOR TRAVELLING WITH BABY THIS CHRISTMAS
That big day is getting closer and, if you’re anything like us, you’re already double and triple checking your plans for Christmas, especially if you have a little one in toe.
It’s even truer if you’re spending the season away from home. Suddenly, all the things you take for granted, like your own bathroom and personal space, are a distant memory. You have to play the parenting game with little space and even less privacy.
If you can’t think of what to take with you, or you’re struggling to keep the list down, here’s 11 travel essentials as chosen by us. Hopefully, it’ll help simplify things this season.
FIRST AID KIT
Hopefully you’ll never need a first aid kit, but it’s always good to have one to hand, just in case.
TRAVEL STERILISER KIT
As parents, we use a lot of stuff, and unless you’re prepared to drag it all around with you, handy travel versions are a lifesaver. A travel steriliser kit lets your prepare bottles, wherever you go.
WIPES & TISSUES
Never leave home with out them. Enough said.
TRAVEL CHANGE MAT
A changing mat is an essential part of any parent’s arsenal, so having a travel one is always going to come in handy.
During the holidays, you’re always to-ing and fro-ing from house to house, so a light and compact pushchair is a big help, especially if it fits easily into your car boot.
You can never have enough bottles, because as much as you want to stuff your face this Christmas, baby will want to feed just as often.
Because no baby ever keeps it all in.
Light, compact and easy to put up, a travel cot is incredibly important if you’re staying over night. They can even be used as a playpen during the day.
Bring your baby monitor with you, and then you can feel safe knowing that as baby sleeps, you’re never that far away.
BABY’S FAVOURITE TOY
A simple one this, but easy to forget. Bringing baby’s favourite toy with you is a great way of making them feel at home, no matter where they are.
While it isn’t going to clean up spillages or provide silent nights, it’s there to capture all the fun, as well as those precious first little Christmas moments.
