John travelled with son Eric, 12 months
We stayed at a resort on Mai Khao beach, about 60km from Patong, which had numerous restaurants and pools as well as a buggy service around the resort. We hired a two-bed apartment so Eric could have a separate room. He was well catered for with a good-quality travel cot and a fantastic black-out blind which meant he didn’t wake up at first light. Definitely worth checking on that in advance. Eric loved being in the water and we took it in turns to keep up with his appetite for splashing around. In the evenings we enjoyed an early cocktail while Eric slept in his pram. It was a great trip and really relaxing, which isn’t a word you naturally associate with a one-year-old.
TIP: Pack swim nappies. In
