SO in t-2 days Jasper is off on his first ever holiday! I would say that packing has been a nightmare but it’s actually been really easy … too easy perhaps? He’s breastfeeding so theres no formula, bottles or steriliser to take and he’s not old enough for proper toys so really he doesn’t need that much.
I did look at forums and ask around for advice but as my mum reminded me, we’re going to Lanzarote not the middle of nowhere … there will be shops if need be!
Ok it looks like a lot but bear with me, things will be rolled up and this will be between the suitcase and hand luggage.
To keep him entertained:
Even though Jasper doesn’t ‘play’ just yet he does have a few little treats to keep him stimulated and happy.
*Monsieur monkey from River Island has been in his hand ever since we got him – his fave perhaps?
*Ziggy zebra’s stripes really catch his eyes and help him to focus – fab during nappy changes!
*Bug ring – He likess to grip hold of this and rattle it about
*Lamaze feet finders – I think I love these more than he does but I want him to discover those tootsies of his so I’m bringing them along!
* Gorgeous little swim shorts from Tesco’s – £4
*I picked this fan up from Mothercare to go on his buggy and probably his cot at night time. I’m hoping he’ll like it as the bird face is kinda creepy!
*Hooded towel to make sure he’s warm straight from the pool
*My old scarf from Thailand to act as a mosquito net, sun shade and wind breaker on his buggy!
Its pretty cool in Lanzarote at the moment but I don’t want him to get too hot so I’ve stuck to short slewed items.
* 3 t-shirts
* 3 pairs of shorts
* 2 rompers
* 1 pair of dungarees
* 5 vests
(I’ll do lots of #BBOTD’s when we’re back 🙂 )
* Baby wipes
* Nappy bags
* Swim nappies
* 2 dummies
* Hairbrush (to get rid of his cradle cap)
* Tiddlypoms nappy balm, body wash, massage oil and lotion
* Aquaint hand sanitiser
* Ointment for his dry skin
(Not toiletries but in picture)
* Sun hat
* 3 pairs of socks
* 1 pair of scratch mittens
* Ewan the dream sheep
* Milestone card
* 3 muslins
We will also have his Bugaboo, carrier and probably a few last minute bits that I’ll frantically throw in as we’re half way out the door!
Oh and not forgetting …. his passport!
Have I missed anything? What were your travel essentials for bambino?
Thanks for reading! xx
