PACK IT RIGHT

Your Baby & Toddler - - The dossier travel -

The best part about baby and tod­dler clothes is that they’re small, which means you get to pack lots of them. They get dirty quickly too, so you’ll prob­a­bly be do­ing some wash­ing on your hol­i­day any­way. Ide­ally, you should pack two changes of clothes for ev­ery day and a pair of py­ja­mas for ev­ery night – or ev­ery sec­ond night if you’re dar­ing. Re­mem­ber that the weather is to­tally un­pre­dictable th­ese days so pack some warm clothes for your sum­mer hol­i­day (es­pe­cially if you’re go­ing to be out in the early evenings).

Of course you’ll be pack­ing your child’s favourite toy or com­fort ob­ject too, but you don’t have to take along the whole toy box. There will be so much for your child to ex­plore on hol­i­day that you’ll only need a few favourite toys for down­time – you know which ones those are. The smaller the bet­ter, and re­mem­ber you’ll have your ac­tiv­ity bag from the aero­plane or car too. Al­ter­na­tively, you could hire some toys if you re­ally want to. Tam­bino’s (www. tam­bi­nos.co.za) spe­cialises in of­fer­ing toy hire for fam­i­lies vis­it­ing Cape Town on hol­i­day and de­liv­ers an age ap­pro­pri­ate toy box filled with a va­ri­ety of good qual­ity ed­u­ca­tional and fun toys with “the ex­press aim of en­ter­tain­ing chil­dren dur­ing their hol­i­day, in their ac­com­mo­da­tion, on the beach and in the bath”. We’re sure no one’s go­ing to com­plain about that.
