British weather isn’t always grey and rainy! As we saw earlier this month, the sun does come out to play, and there are a few things you'll need when it does… Today on the blog we’re sharing six of our best travel essentials for mothers, babies and children that you will get just as much use of at home as you would if you were packing them for a holiday abroad.
1. MULTI-USE MOSQUITO NET
Is it just me, or are there suddenly a lot more mosquitos in the UK than there were 15 years ago? This handy net can be used on your pushchair or cot to protect your little one from mozzies, wasps and bees when you’re out and about or napping with windows open in the house.
2. PACK-AWAY POCKET HIGH CHAIR
Usually marketed as a handy high chair solution when visiting restaurants on holiday, this Pack-Away Pocket High Chair is also a great way to let your little one join you at the garden table for dinner al fresco – saving you the hassle of lifting the bulky high chair outside.
3. Ergobaby Lightweight Aura Wrap
Baby wraps are an obvious choice for holidays when you want to avoid extra baggage fees and explore the local town without having to push a bulky pram around. The same can be said for strolling around your local park! You’ll be hands-free, allowing you to press play on your latest podcast or hold your toddler’s hand without worrying about steering off track. Since it’s made with lightweight and breathable materials, this wrap will ensure both you and your baby stay comfortable on warmer days too.
4. Kids’ Colour Block Wetsuit
Whether you live by a beach or have just finished blowing up the paddling pool, these wetsuits will come in handy to ensure children stay warmer for longer whilst playing in the water – arguably more important in the UK than it would have been on your cancelled holiday abroad!
5. Leopard Print Maternity Tankini
If you’re currently expecting, you may want to cool off in the paddling pool too. Choose from our selection of specially designed swimsuits and tankinis, which offer support for your bump and bust, as well as coming in the most gorgeous colours and prints.
6. SOLAR BUDDIES SUN CREAM APPLICATOR
It is obvious sun cream is not just a holiday abroad essential. But, we thought we’d take the chance to tell you about the Solar Buddies Sun Cream Applicator anyway. It is perfect for little ones who don’t enjoy the sticky application process that comes with sun cream! Make the experience more exciting by allowing them to roll the cream on the spots they can reach themselves.
