Whether you’re taking the littluns to Brighton or the Balearics, you’ll need gear to make life hassle-free. So we’ve put together our top ten peacekeeper essentials. Here’s to notably fewer hollers of “Are we there yet?” Happy hols everyone…
1. Snack Catcher – £3.69
The handy snack pot that lets toddlers dip in without the food falling out. Just the job for all things snacky breadsticks, cucumber strips, dried fruits (or, what the hell, chocolate buttons – we won’t tell).
2. Trunki Ride-on suitcase – £31.99
The original and the best. Seven years after that Dragon’s Den appearance the Trunki is still a hands down toddler favourite. An airport godsend, when little legs get tired they just ride aboard their luggage.
3. Baby Weavers Sleepy Travel Cot – Chessington Pastel – £29.99
Perfect for when you’re on the move, off on hols or visiting the rellies this travel cot is lightweight and comes complete with a handy storage pocket for those essential baby toys. Ideal for nippers from birth to 15kg.
4. Milton Mini Portable Soother Steriliser – £6.99
Sandy soothers can make life miserable but this nifty little device turns frowns upside down with sterile soothers always at the ready. Easily attaches to your buggy or bag.
5. My Carry Potty – £23.49
When they’ve got to go, they’ve got to go. Always at the ready, My Carry Potty is leak-proof, lightweight and has a completely watertight seal. With a handy carry handle for added independence.
6. Skip Hop Pronto Mini Changer Wave Dot - £25.99
On the days you don’t need to cart your big changing bag with you this is perfect. Holds four nappies and wipes, folds out with a comfy head pillow and is extra wide for wriggly pigglies.
7. Phil & Teds Lobster Black - £49.95 RRP: £65.00
This portable highchair is lightweight and has quick-smart clamping which fits to most tables. Suitable for diners from 6 months and the maximum weight load is 17 kgs.
8. Brother Max 2nd Stage Weaning Pots (set of 4) – £6.49
Clever design is what makes these pots such a hit. Click together for easy storage and when it’s tea time just feed straight from the pot. Or store in the freezer then click the easy release pressure point and out it pops. Like we say… clever.
9. Mamascarf Breast Feeding Scarf – £16.99
Designed by our favourite mumpreneur Keira O’Mara, the Mamascarf gives you the confidence to discreetly breastfeed wherever, whenever you like. Handily covers post-birth mum tums too. Nice and lightweight in pure cotton. High five to Keira for all round cleverness.
