Travelling this summer? Whether you’re travelling abroad or enjoying a staycation here in the UAE, packing for your little ones can be the most stressful part of the holiday. How can such tiny people need so many things? Luckily for you, we’ve taken the stress away and given you our top travel picks to make your journey easier!
We’ve teamed up with Mumzworld to give you our top travel essentials, including everything from pushchairs to toys. Plus, there’s 10% off for British Mums members using promo code LOVEBM on the Mumzworld website, so that will make things slightly easier on the pocket too.
1. The pushchair – Bugaboo Butterfly
Ultra-lightweight, this stroller makes your life easier and your child’s ride more comfortable. With a one-second, one-handed fold and unfold the Bugaboo Butterfly is a must-have when travelling with little ones.
Ultra-compact fold, the Bugaboo Butterfly fits within overhead compartments, car boots and small corridors with ease. It has a spacious basket to store even more of your essentials (or duty-free!) and comes with a carry bag, leg rest and seat inlay for ultimate comfort.
2. The car seat – Jikel Rotating IsoFix All in One Car Seat
Installed with IsoFix for extra safety and side-impact protection, the Jikel All in One Car Seat makes you rest assured that your little ones are safe. The rotating car seat makes life easy, so you can fit and remove your children in the easiest way.
3. The travel cot – Bugaboo Stardust
Travel cots can be a bit of a faff to put up and down, but not anymore! The Bugaboo Stardust is intuitive and can be folded with the mattress inside (I know we’re still amazed too!).
It has a one-second to fold and three seconds to unfold, so even when you are in a rush this travel cot really does take no time at all to set up and pack away. Breathable and comfortable for your little one too, let’s hope it earns you a few more hours of sleep.
4. The feeding solution – Haakaa Ladybug Milk Collector
We all know how precious every drop of breast milk is, especially in the early days and the Haakaa Ladybug Milk Collector makes sure you don’t cry over spilt milk. Easy to attach and comfortable to wear, they fit neatly and discreetly in your bra so no one will know either!
5. The carry-on – TWELVElittle Peek-a-boo Satchel Diaper Bag
A gorgeous bag that hardly looks like a nappy change bag, made with vegan leather that is easy to use, wipeable and waterproof everything we busy mums need.
There are pockets galore with a handy wet wipe pocket and two bottle pockets for easy access, along with a large main compartment with plenty of zips and fastenings to make life easy! Complete with a washable nappy changing pad, and a handy key leash to make finding your keys easy.
6. The travel accessories – Bumble & Bird Universal Buggy Board 4 Wheel Safe Seat
A universal buggy board with a difference. The Bumble & Bird Buggy Board makes life easier for you and your little ones whilst out and about exploring or travelling through terminals. Simply attach to the pushchair or stroller in seconds with a single click-connection, it attaches to most makes and models. Fitted with a seat too, your little one will be comfortable and may even give you a few moments of peace whilst they ride along.
7. The snacks – Bear Paws
Suitable for children 12 months and above, these will be guaranteed to keep the kids happy and trick them into thinking they’re having sweets when in fact they’re not!
Containing all-natural ingredients and no refined sugar, these cute little treats, really do taste like sweeties but without the mad sugar rush after. So let the kids snack on these during those moments when you need a few quiet minutes when travelling, you won’t regret it!
8. The first aid kit – Max Medical First Aid Bag with Contents
Make packing the first aid kit easy as everything you need is in a neat and compact travel kit. It’s never something you want to take with you, but travelling with little ones can lead to bumps, bruises and the occasional stomach bug so make sure you’re prepared to maximise your time away!
9. The toiletries – Sun Bum Sunscreen SPF 30 mineral tinted face lotion
Now this one is for us mums, in the midst of packing for everyone else remember to treat yourself this summer too. We all know SPF is a necessity, especially on our faces so why not make your summer easier by skipping the make-up and simply applying a tinted sunscreen?
Reef friendly, vegan and oil-free this is the perfect addition to your morning routine, it’s lightweight, silky smooth, leaves a matte finish and acts as a primer too that’s why we love it! Remember to SPF every day even when it’s cloudy, your skin will thank you.
10. The activities – Mideer LCD Writing Tablet
The perfect travel activity is the Mideer LCD Writing Tablet, a great alternative to carrying reams of paper, colour books, crayons and pens, this compact tablet look-a-like means the little ones can scribble away (mess-free!) and simply clear the screen at the touch of a button. Perfect for kids of all ages, this may actually be something all children can play with without causing arguments (hopefully!).
Hopefully, these will all help make your summer travels slightly easier, and remember to use promo code LOVEBM on the Mumzworld website for an extra 10% off too!
