As the summer comes to an end our thoughts move to half term and family getaways throughout autumn and winter. It's lovely to enjoy breaks in quaint cottages with roaring open fires, intimate woodland lodges or countryside retreats with loved ones while the golden leaves fall outside.
If you're planning an escape over the next few weeks then our list of baby travel essentials will certainly come in handy.
Even though the days will be getting darker soon, there is still plenty of summer sunshine lingering so to ensure a peaceful nights sleep while away a blind is a must. It's really easy to adjust the size of the Gro blind using the suction cups provided and it is compact enough, complete with storage bag, to pop in your luggage wherever you may be heading. Even if you're miles from home the darkness will allow little ones to fall asleep and stay asleep with ease.
When dining away from home, whether in a hotel, restaurant or your self catering accommodation, it's important to have comfortable seating for your little ones but it isn't always possible to have their highchairs to hand. The portable Chicco chair is therefore invaluable as it is easy to store, quick to fit and it keeps your child safe and secure while they eat at the table. It comes in a modern silver shade too.
Pop-Up Bubble Travel Bed
This is another great yet compact product which is ideal for travel as it can be set up or put down easily for a peaceful nights sleep. It comes complete with a mosquito net and padded mattress and once it is outgrown it can be used as a playhouse or seating area while reading. It's incredibly versatile.
This multi-award winning wrap is perfect for picking up newborns, especially just after birth when c-sections can prevent you from bending or when you may suffer from a sore back. The material is soft against delicate skin and the strong handles make it easy to transfer baby from pram, cot or car seat while they snore away. It even doubles up as a breastfeeding cover.
When on holiday you may find yourself breastfeeding more frequently in public so it's essential to ensure it is a comfortable experience for both baby and mum. The pretty pillows from Thrupenny Bits contain a removable crescent shaped piece for ultimate comfort and they can also be used as a bag!
They comes in lots of lovely designs, sizes and fabrics to suit your needs.
