I admit I’m guilty of being a planner and like to be prepared before I get into something, especially with the little mister. So yes, I love tips and tricks for a more confortable holiday or trip.
Here’s some of my tested and approved ones
Sun lotion (please smear your child at home before dressing, so you don’t forget any body part!)
Water bottle spray
Talcum-powder (This is magic guys! Truly amazing stuff at the beach. If your baby is full of sand, put some powder on and gone is the sand, without scratching that little gentle skin!)
Wet wipes (always bring wet wipes to anywhere, from now on they are your best friend for any trip you’ll be doing)
Regular diaper bag and swim diapers if you have any
Zip lock bags (these are handy for putting your keys, phone or wallet, so the sand doesn’t get in, also a zip bag for a few pacifiers
4 beach toys is enough
Beach tent for adults, you can bring the toddler version if you’re planning to stay a few days. Mille is 15 months and a half a day is exhausting for him and for us 😉 The beach tent is really handy for the shade of course, but it’s a good place to put all of your stuff out of the sun.
Picnic blanket with pickets so the whole things stays in place.
And the usual extra clothing (pack some long sleeves, it can be colder especially at the Nord Sea.)
Regular diapers and swim diapers
Sunglasses, if your child keeps them on! 😉
We went for a day trip to the beach in the Nord of France. We love peace and quiet and the beach to our selves 😉
Really fun day and made memories for life!
