Tips from mums for mums!

Summer is Coming! (fingers crossed!)

A great tip from one of our mums. 

When buying summer sandals for your little one, put them on when you are around the house with some socks.  A fashion statement! but also a great way to wear them in without horrible blisters on their soft little feet.

 

Travelling with Children

Take along children's favourite bear/toy for security

Favourite snacks, sometimes its hard when travelling to find snacks children enjoy. 

Dishwashing liquid to wash their drink bottles/baby bottles etc. 

Plastic or disposable plates/bowls and some cutlery and plastic zip lock bags for snack storage.  

We often take cereal for quick breakfasts stored in disposable plastic food containers. 

Favourite spread - peanut butter, vegemite, jam... for sandwich snacks at any time of the day or night!  Purchase some bread and butter on arrival.
