On vacation

Travel, relax, enjoy. That’s the theory!

Non sarà mai più la stessa cosa. Ma preparando i prodotti giusti da portare in vacanza, molti dei quali sono reperibili su Tommee Tippee, e con qualche accortezza in più, le tue vacanze potrebbero essere le migliori di sempre!

Il timore è quello di tornare ancora più stanca di prima, e con molti quattrini in meno, ma con la giusta preparazione e dei prodotti specifici accuratamente selezionati per le vacanze, sarai pronta a partire. Vediamo un po’ di cosa hai davvero bisogno, e lascia che ti diamo qualche consiglio per una vacanza serena!

Viaggi in modo comodo?

Se il tuo bagaglio è enorme, prova a fartene prestare uno più leggero, magari pieghevole, più facile da trasportare. Oppure, prova a mettere il tuo cucciolo in una fascia porta bebè. Questo ti permetterà di tenerlo vicino a te in situazioni complicate e ti lascerà le mani libere. Ricorda, poi, di vestirlo “a strati” in modo da poterlo coprire o scoprire in base alla temperatura. Inoltre, una copertina o una sciarpa saranno provvidenziali in caso tu voglia una copertura in più o semplicemente un riparo dalla luce o dal sole.

La pappa in viaggio

Se il tuo bimbo beve latte in polvere, portane in quantità, perché potresti non trovare la marca alla quale è abituato. Non dovrai dimenticare molti biberon, tettarelle, un portabiberon da viaggio, scaldabiberon e sterilizzatore se lo usi anche a casa. I bavaglini monouso e un seggiolone portatile sono una comodità, se prevedi di mangiare spesso fuori. Se stai allattando, porta con te una sciarpa, o una copertura, se non sei a tuo agio ad allattare nei posti nuovi o sui mezzi pubblici, e un leggero tiralatte manuale se desideri estrarne un po’ per ogni evenienza.

Changing on the go

Make things easier by having the mother of all change bags: roll diapers up with a diaper bag inside, ready to dispose of the dirty one. Take a pack of wipes that's already part-used (just a few), so that the wipes come out easier. Use a muslin cloth as a lightweight change mat, and take a spare! Double the number of nappies and baby grows you think you'll need, and remember if there's no safe changing table, use the floor – that way, they can't fall off!

Surviving bed and bath time

For bath time, check if there are bath mats where you're staying, or take your own as they may be a bit grubby for your baby's lovely bum! They'll also feel happier if they have their regular bath toys, bath products, and towel (which will all smell of home too). A universal bath plug and travel blackout blind could also be handy. For bedtime, take sheets from home, as well as their familiar nightlights, music, stories and teddies. These will all help to keep their routine familiar so, fingers crossed, you'll all get a decent night's sleep.

The stuff you'll forget

Other baby products for vacations you could consider are: suncream, water wings, hats, swim nappies, a pop-up tent, buggy shade and rain cover, mosquito patches or repellent, first aid kit, spare pacifiers and teethers – as well as holders so you don't lose the latter two products. It's also handy to take sterilising wipes (highchair trays can be pretty dirty!), washing powder to rinse through clothes before they stain, ziplock bags (you'll use them for everything), a torch (to find stuff in your room whilst they're asleep) and an eye mask - so you can still sleep when they sleep, wherever and whenever that is!

Hints and hacks

Even if you head away with the very best products for vacations with a baby, there will still be tricky moments. Here are some hints and hacks from parents who have mastered the art of holidaying with babies - may these help your holiday be a little less stressful and a lot more fun!

#1 Buy, borrow, or chance it

Go through your ticklist and decide what you can borrow, what you need to buy and what you're happy sorting out when you arrive. This is the best way to save some cash and stay in control (as much as you can).

#2 Take the biggest, lightweight scarf you have

It will become your best friend - acting as a makeshift blanket / sunshade / breastfeeding cover (if you want one). It will also be used to mop up food and sick when you run out of wipes, so maybe take two.

#3 Wear a necklace they can chew

Whether you're travelling by car, bus, train or plane, you'll spend a long time carrying or cuddling your little one. Keep them happy by wearing a big chunky necklace for them to play with and chew!

#4 Head off as soon as your gate is called!

If you're flying, keep an eye and ear out for when your departure gate is called. Then set off straightaway. One of you is bound to forget, drop or do something that will mean it takes longer than you think.

#5 Plugs, plugs and more plugs

Bottle warmers, sterilizers, monitors — it's amazing how many things you need to plug in when you have a baby. Take a multi-socket extension cable and loads of adapters if you're heading overseas.

#6 Diapers - the ultimate hiding spot

If you're by the pool or on the beach, wrap your valuables inside a (clean) diaper - thieves are really unlikely to grab this on their way past. Just don't open the wrong one yourself!


È valsa davvero la pena correre il rischio e fare qualcosa di completamente diverso.
