As we know, going on holiday is an absolute essential for those needing some time off and can be an amazing experience for you and your family to spend some quality time together. However, if you’re a first-time parent or even on kid number 5, you know that being away from the comfort of your own home can be quite daunting for a newborn baby.

We only want the very best for our little ones and travel can be stressful and lead to overpacking which is never a good thing! This is why it’s important to pack the right things. Below are some simple products that parents can bring along on their next trip to make their lives that little bit easier.

Getting around the airport is a massive feat, so parents make sure you wear some comfy shoes and prepare for the hike! A good tip if you don’t want to bring a bulky pram, is to get a baby carrier. While not the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen, they are a great way to keep both hands free, making it a breeze to check in and make your way through security.

THE PLANE

An inevitable part of flying with your baby, is that they will cry. But there’s no need to fret over this, there are ways to calm them and keep your trip stress free. Tommee Tippee has specially designed soothers for newborn babies ages 0-2 months old which are a great on-the-go option. They also have soother holders so they don’t fall on the ground and get covered in nasties!

THE HOTEL

Temperature is not always the first thing that comes to mind when you’re travelling with a baby, however different air systems can be hard to navigate especially in totally new climates. A handy tool to combat this is a Groegg. They are an innovative thermometer that changes colour to let you know when the room temperature is too low or too high and is conveniently sized to fit in your travel bag. Perfect for giving you the reassurance that your baby is sleeping in the ideal temperature to ensure a comfortable, full night’s sleep for you and your bub!

SLEEPING

The sleeping situation can be a tough one to crack but ensuring your bub is comfy and cosy in all kinds of environments is easy with a Grobag. Packing the right blankets can quickly take up a lot of precious space in your suitcase so these baby sleeping bags are a great alternative. Whether you’re in the car, on a plane or even in your hotel, the Grobag will ensure your bub is not too warm or too cool while they sleep! Grobags have a safe zip and click design that won’t fall off, meaning there’s no way that you can lose them when you’re not looking.
