Is the idea of jetting off on holidays with your baby for the first time making you feel more anxious than relaxed? Travelling with your newborn can be a daunting task, especially for a first time mum.

We run through five essentials to pack when going on holidays.

1.Bepanthen Baby Suncream From Boots

This should be at the top of every parent’s list! Whether going to Majorca or Mallin Head, keeping your baby’s skin protected is imperative. As we know, overexposure to the sun can cause long term damage to your baby’s skin, and not to mention be extremely uncomfortable and cause a lot of tears.

Bepanthen Baby Suncream is SPF 50 and formulated especially for your baby’s sensitive skin. It’s free of fragrance, parabens, colours and other ingredients that may cause irritation, keeping your baby protected in the summer sun. Visit the Boots stand at Pregnancy & Baby Fair to chat to reps about baby skincare.

2.Multi-use Cover

A multi-use cover is a versatile cover which comes in handy in many scenarios. It can be used as a car seat cover, a breastfeeding cover, a shopping trolley cover, a high chair/swing cover, and an infinity scarf… you name it! This product will no doubt come in handy when abroad, and back at home.

3.Mothercare Travel Cot

The Mothercare Classic Travel Cot is a lightweight, fold up cot that you can bring virtually anywhere and will provide your child with a safe, familiar place to sleep. What’s more convenient is the cot double up as a playpen.

5.Water Safety

While this technically isn’t something you pack, swim classes are an excellent way to prep your kiddo for a summer holiday at the beach or pool. There are many swimming courses for children age 0-3 years, that are aimed at building your kids confidence around water.

At the Pregnancy & Baby Fair, chat to one of the AquaBabies reps about enrolling your child in a course.

Waterbabies, Aquakiddies, and Turtle Tots will all be at the Pregnancy & Baby Fair. Stop by and chat to one of their reps.
