Baby and Toddler Holiday Essentials with a Difference

Its that time of year again. Days are getting longer; it’s getting warmer and finally summer is here! Time to rest, relax and have some fun. Most of you will be jetting off on your summer holidays over the next few months. However, travelling with a baby is a whole different ballgame. There are so many things to consider when packing for a holiday because you don’t want to be caught short. There are lots of websites out there which list out all the essentials you need for holidaying with a baby or toddler. However here at Sonality we like to think outside the box, so here are our Baby and Toddler Holiday Essentials with a difference!


Alytimes Baby Inflatable Bathtub

Imagine the situation. You arrive at your hotel room. The room is nice and spacey and you have a lovely view from the balcony. You walk in to look at the bathroom and you realise you only have a walk in shower and no bathtub! How are you going to bath your baby? This is where the Alytimes Baby Inflatable Bathtub comes in. Its lightweight and compact which means it won’t take up much space in your luggage. All you need to do is inflate it when you get to your hotel and you’re ready to go. Its suitable for babies and toddlers from 0-4 years and has a textured bottom to prevent your little one from slipping and a water level mark which tells you exactly how much water to fill. It also has a convenient drain plug for easy water release and so is simple and practical to use. Due to how soft it is your little one will want to hop in all the time!

Universal Travel Sink Plug

If you don’t want to take the inflatable bath with you then the Universal Travel Sink Plug is a handy little contraption. The soft silicone fits most plug holes and will turn the sink into a bath for your little baby. If you have a baby who is sitting confidently, this can also be used in the shower so your little one can have a little splash around too. It’s a lovely bright colour too so you won’t end up forgetting it in the shower when you’re doing your last ‘have I packed everything’ check.

Slipfree Shoes

These Slipfree Shoes are definitely a baby and toddler essential with a difference. In fact they are a holiday game changer! The firm-grip soles help prevent slipping and sliding on wet and dry surfaces and they are so easy to swim in. These will allow children to move freely from beach to pool to waterslide and everywhere in-between. No more shouting for your kids to stop running round the pool and no more tears when the hot sand or hidden pebbles hurt their little feet. They are also great for standing in hotel baths/showers where there are no non-slip mats provided. These are the only shoes your little one will need all holiday. And best of all they come in a range of fun and colourful designs so your little one will have fun wearing these.

Babymoov Anti- UV Tent

You’re enjoying your holiday and decide you want to go and spend some time on the beach. You get to the beach and realise there are no parasols available. This is where the Babymoov Anti-UV Tent is the perfect solution. The tent offers full SPF 50+ UV Protection from the sun so you have peace of mind that your little one will be comfortable and safe. It provides shelter from wind and sand and the ventilated mesh means cool air is able to flow through the tent. There is a light and compact travel case and the instant and easy pop up means you won’t have to waste time setting this up. Lastly, it is also big enough for more than one child to sit and play inside…or even an adult if you really want to! And this doesn’t need to be just for holidays…it can be used in the park and garden when you’re back home too!

My First Holiday Bodysuit

Our baby and toddler holiday essentials wouldn’t be complete without a little style. With all of the above being handy items, let’s not forget your little one also needs to look the part on holiday. Moreover, a baby’s first holiday is always one to remember and cherish. So this personalised ‘my first holiday’ bodysuit is designed to capture those memories. Looking back over photographs will be extra special and those fellow plan passengers will definitely coo over your little one. Or if you’re feeling extra creative you can head to the design studio and design your own baby grow, vest to shirt or any other personalised baby clothes. Our particular favourite is our super stylish baseball romper. This short sleeve and short leg romper is great for those hot days lounging by the pool. And for the cooler evenings walking along the promenade our personalised denim jackets are a great addition to the suitcase. Head over to the shop page where you can see a huge variety of personalised baby clothing to ensure your little one is the coolest looking kid on holiday.
