Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Summer Holidays -

When you’re all ex­hausted from a day of fun, it’s time to head home. Yes, there might tears at this point, but a few smart moves can make this part of the day run more smoothly if you’ve left a ‘comfy kit’ in the car. This is sim­ply a bag con­tain­ing an old bath mat, towel, fresh set of clothes to travel home in, bot­tle of wa­ter and some child-friendly af­ter-sun lo­tion. Call­ing it a ‘comfy kit’ helps se­cure your tod­dler’s co­op­er­a­tion. Stand or lay your lit­tle one on the bath mat, and use the bot­tled wa­ter which will be warm from be­ing left in the car, to wash off any re­main­ing sand – a bot­tle with a sports cap is ideal. Dry her, and smooth on plenty of lo­tion to soothe and hy­drate her skin af­ter a day of sun and sand, before dress­ing her in those comfy clothes for a happy jour­ney home.
