We’re lucky enough that both our families have houses we can use in South of France & Tuscany (thanks family!). We just hop on & off the plane with hand luggage.
…And then came Baby Girl.
Baby Girl also doesn’t breastfeed as well when we’re out & about so I’ve started expressing more & using bottles. So in case with the heat she didn’t like being stuck against me, we’ve got 25 cold water steriliser bags, three bottles & a pump with us.
We’ve got baby clothes for every weather eventuality as it was due to be stormy, then blisteringly hot but cool in the evenings… And she has an uncanny knack for needing more than one outfit a day. Plus a UV onsie-style swimsuit, a tiny wetsuit, hats & baby sunscreen.
We’re lucky there was already a travel cot & car seat here or else we’d have been lost under a pile of baby luggage in the check in queue!
We also made the brave decision to leave the pushchair at home & just bring the baby carrier, which so far has worked well as we’re just mooching round the house & village mainly. God help us when we venture on a holiday beyond these four walls…
