Mum hack: when going away, bring your little one’s favourite linen. Why? The familiar smell of home will help them relax, feel comforted in new surroundings and aid sleep. Whether you’re jetting off to a far-flung destination or spending the weekend with the grandparents, these travel essentials promise to soothe. Use them at home for at least a week before your trip so they can get used to it.
Royal Blue Blanket
Say hello to the super-soft, snuggly blanket of dreams, which is perfect for your travels. It’s best used on the go (for example, as a warm blanket for the plane) or to cosy up with in bed. The gloss cotton fabric makes it warm and welcoming, whilst the chic navy and gold border is oh-so-elegant. Don’t you think? And if you’re travelling with a baby, it’s just the right size to cuddle them with in transit.
Majestic Gold Collection Full Bumper
If you’re planning a staycation or a weekend away with family, this one’s for you. Dress your angel’s cot in the Majestic Gold Collection Full Bumper for a home away from home vibe. Not only does it look lavish for the duration of your stay (thanks to the intricate gold lace and piping), but it also provides a cushioned cocoon around your baby’s sleep space, ensuring they feel secure and don’t bump their head against the frame. Get baby’s name or initials personalised onto it at The Baby Cot Shop - the most adorable touch.
London Grey Collection Changing Mat
Here’s one you’ve probably not heard of, but it’s a game-changer for parents. Bring a changing mat cover to zip over their changing mat – it’s the answer to your prayers, especially as changing mats can be cold and uncomfortable for babies. It’s designed in a stunning grey satin and velour fabric, which we can assure you is ultra-warm. With its easy to use zip, you can remove the cover and throw it in the wash whenever you wish. Even better, it comes in bespoke sizes to suit your requirements, so get in touch if you’re ready to have a fuss-free baby changing solution. Trust us, it’s the most practical everyday and travelling item.
Grace Rose Collection Duvet Cover
Renting a holiday home or staying with family? Bring their duvet for a sound night sleep. Nothing beats their one at home, so this simple hack guarantees they doze off quickly. The sandy pink and dusty rose hues perfectly suit all little princesses – and those ivory frills are just the sweetest. Take your pick from a duvet cover in cot bed or single bed size, which means you can purchase this as they grow. Alternatively, you could invest in one to store at your home away from home to keep packing to a minimum.
