A family holiday is a great opportunity to get away from everyday routine and enjoy some quality time with your loved ones. We all love to go on holidays but it can be quite challenging when you have a baby. With a little luck, your baby may be the best traveler and stays asleep for most of the journey. If you are wondering what to pack for your baby to be comfortable, you will be surprised at how much gear they need to be happy and for you to be stress-free.

Below is a list of things which you might want to carry especially if you are going for more than a month. You should never go on a holiday without these things, I repeat NEVER!

• Pushchair: Let’s admit that it can be tiring to carry your baby in your arms while roaming around the city. A pushchair is ideal for a bumpy walk. If you are in town or city locations, you should opt for a lightweight stroller.

• Blanket: A blanket is a must to carry. It not only keeps your baby warm and comfortable but it also gives your baby the comfort of a home. Babies are very attached to their blankets.

• Baby Sling: This invention is very handy especially when you are at the airport, train stations or in a busy city. It makes it easier to move even with your baby in your arms.

• Breastfeeding: For all breastfeeding mothers, make sure that you carry a shawl wherever you go. It will be more comfortable to breastfeed your baby wherever there are a lot of people around such as on a flight.

• Meals & bottled milk: It is essential to carry meals and bottled milk for your baby whenever you are traveling. You might want to carry the whole formula of milk if you are worried about it being available in the country you are going to. If you are flying, the usual liquid restrictions do not apply for your baby’s food and milk. Always carry some extra bottles, your sterilizing equipment and a bottle warmer.

• Plenty of outfits: Whether its warm or cool outfits, always remember to carry extra clothes for your baby as he or she can be very fussy at times and tend to dirty their clothes. On the safe side, try to inquire if the place you are staying offer laundry facilities. Do not forget to carry your nappies, rash cream and travel changing mat.
