What to Pack for Your First Holiday as a New Family

Going on holiday with your young brood for the very first time? If so, you might be wondering what to pack? After all, if you're heading abroad, it isn't always so easy to find the products and brands you're accustomed to here in the UK. So, to help you better plan your trip and ensure you don't board the plane without the essentials, we're sharing with you some of our top picks from Chemist.co.uk.

Swim Nappies

Avoid the dreaded accident in the hotel or villa pool and consider taking some swim-friendly nappies with you. The award-winning Swim Happy Nappy by Splash About will ensure those messy mishaps will be a thing of the past. In a gorgeous 'in the woods' print, the nappy is recommended by swim schools, pool owners and leisure facilities globally.

They're made from neoprene and are reusable. Shaped into two back pieces, which cup the baby’s bottom and are held securely in place by a gusset, the nappy features a specialist waist and leg fabric which grips comfortably, yet snugly, to your child’s body. Take a closer look here.

There's also a dinosaur-themed pair here on the site.

Padded Changing Mat

Planning to hire a car when you reach your destination? Protect your child from the sun's rays in the back of the vehicle with these car sunshades from First Steps. This pack of two shades will shield your baby from the heat and glare of the sun, keeping them cooler and allowing them to sleep better on longer journeys.

Mini Backpack with Reins

Your little one is bound to love exploring on the beach, but thanks to this backpack, you can keep them closer to you and free from harm. The only backpack your child will want to be seen with, the Skip Hop’s Zoo Harness Backpack has a detachable tether for the smallest of travellers. It's roomy, too, meaning you can store everything he or she needs, as well as all those pebbles and other 'souvenirs' they pick up.

Kwells Kids Travel Sickness Tablets
Try as you might to prepare them for the journey, some kids will still struggle with travel or car sickness. So that's where these travel sickness tablets may come in handy. They can be taken up to 30 minutes before travelling to prevent travel sickness, or at the onset of nausea, and they can be sucked, chewed or swallowed. They can easily be halved, if required, too.
To be eligible to order these kids' travel sickness tablets, you will need to fill out some basic details via the link above. Our pharmacist will then get back to you, should there be any issue with your prospective order.
Calypso Kids' Sun Lotion SPF 50
Offering UVA/UVB protection with hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for children, this Calypso Kids' Sun Lotion islight and non-greasy with gentle moisturisers that replenish the natural oils lost by exposure to the sun, wind, and water. Photostable, the lotion maintains the level of sun protection between applications.

Kids' Ear Plugs
