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
