Holiday Packing Checklist – Baby!


We have booked to go to Centre Parcs! and we cannot wait to take her away and have some quality family time; really looking forward to taking her swimming! Anyone who has been away with a Baby will know that it feels like you are taking everything but the kitchen sink with you! In order to make sure we remembered EVERYTHING I wrote the Holiday Packing Checklist – Baby, I hope you find it useful. Don’t forget to print out 2 copies, then on your return you can make sure you bring everything back home again! There is nothing worse than getting home and realising that you have left formula in the cupboard of your holiday villa or worse!

I have to admit, I was a little dubious about taking an 8 week old on holiday, she would not remember it all and it was quite expensive.  We decided that although Miss H probably wouldn’t remember the trip – she would certainly enjoy it!  We chose Centre Parcs for our first family break because we had been there lots and knew how perfect it would be.

You will notice Passport is on the list – we didn’t need one for Centre Parcs but it was added just in case I ever forgot it for a trip abroad!  I have heard of people doing this and the idea fills me with dread.  Imagine getting to the airport and not being able to fly – after all that packing and preparation and of course the cost!

Obviously, the Holiday Packing Checklist – Baby list was designed with Miss H in mind, feel free to add to it/remove where appropriate to make it work for you & your baby 🙂  We had a fabulous weekend at Centre Parcs & had everything we needed thanks to our Holiday Packing Checklist – Baby.  Miss H was begining to teethe when we went away hence the teething gel!  She had bad cradle cap as well.  The calpol and medicines were all a ‘just in case’ and thankfully we didn’t need to use them!

Enjoy your holiday!  Do let me know if the packing checklist helped by leaving a comment!
