Packing list for a holiday with a baby

Preparing to go on holiday with a little one can be complicated – not only do you have to pack for yourself, you now need to pack for every eventuality for your baby! Take the stress out of your holiday packing with our list – just print off and tick as you go.

Start collecting together your packing a few days before you travel, and tick things off as you pack them. Some things, such as comforters and baby monitors, will need to be left to the very last minute – so just highlight them to remember to bundle them in at the end.

One large bag for baby, plus their daily changing bag should be enough to fit everything in. Pack medicines and toiletries in re-sealable plastic bags to prevent any leakages.

You can borrow a number of the more bulky baby essentials from us, so that there a few less things for you to pack, just let us know when booking so we can reserve them for you. Equipment available to hire is already ticked in the lists below.

Top Tips!
Keep a copy of your personal packing list saved somewhere for the next time you’re packing to save time.

Whilst you’re on holiday if there are things you wished you brought – just add them to the list for next time.

If in doubt, don’t bring it – here at Bedruthan we are really experienced with babies, and staff will be sure to provide necessary equipment. At reception you can also purchase various essentials like calpol, toothpaste and swim nappies, or there is a really well stocked shop in Mawgan Porth village.
