Recommended family holiday checklist

For the suitcase:

  • Clothes – Don’t forget vests / socks / PJs / sleeping bag (if used)
  • Wash bag – Don’t forget toothbrush and toothpaste / bodywash / creams / sponge
  • Mini medi bag – Don’t forget Calpol and thermometer
  • Beakers / formula / dispenser
  • Muslins (including giant ones I love Aden & Anais, great to put over mattress or as sheet. Take one that smells of home so they feel settled) / bibs
  • Mini steriliser or I sometimes used Milton tablets / bottle brush / Detol wipes
  • iPod and speakers or travel mobile / batteries / adaptors / baby monitor
  • Toys / books / teddy / favourite snuggle (I only ever take a few)
  • Random bits – I often pop to JoJo Maman Bebe before a trip and always take portable bath spots that act as a bath mat / bath toys / mosquito net / mosquito patches
