introducing: summer’s must-have travel essentials
don’t leave home this summer without these items in your bag.
as you may know, travelling with our families is something we just love to do here at pacapod. every bag we make is designed to give parents the freedom to travel with their little ones with as little stress and fuss as possible. so, with summer holidays fast approaching and the beautiful weather in full swing, we thought we would compile a list of some items we think you shouldn't be without on your adventures.
1. pacapod changing bag
of course we think this is pretty essential! our bags not only help keep you super organised when out and about, but the ability to use each element on their own means that you can change & feed your little ones extra quickly when on the go. we recommend checking out our travel lite range here as not only are they all super lightweight, compact and great for travel but we think they’re pretty beautiful too!
2. aden + anais swaddle
the versatility of an aden + anais swaddle makes them a definite summer travel essential. the super soft, breathable fabric prevents overheating and their large size makes them great as burping cloths, nursing covers, pram covers and so much more!
3. milton travel steriliser
with a 2-in-1 function, this steriliser can be used in the microwave for 2 minutes or cold water for 15 minutes. it’s compact and convenient size makes it perfect for during travel and when away from home.
4. travel blackout blind
it can be so hard to get little ones to sleep when it is still light outside so if you have a travel blackout blind with you that you can easily attach to the windows you will be able to create a dark, cosy environment that will help your child get to sleep.
5. sun cream
definitely an essential if you are off to a hot destination! we love green people organic sun lotion as it non-greasy and very quick to absorb. with a blend of safe, non-toxic uv filters and antioxidant-rich green tea, rosemary and edelweiss extracts you can rest assured that your little one is protected without the use of harsh chemicals.
be sure to load up your feeder pod with nutritious snacks to avoid unwanted tantrums at check-ins, take offs and traffic jams. we advise avoiding sticky foods that will create a mess and any foods that quickly perish in the heat.
7. holiday clothes
by this we mean swimsuits, sun hats and swim nappies. many swimsuits now offer uv protection which is perfect if you are spending long periods of time in the water or on the beach.
8. aden + anais summer sleeping bag
just like their muslins, aden + anais sleeping bags are made from a beautiful soft fabric that prevents overheating in hot weather. their design also prevents the stresses of loose covers and avoids little legs kicking them off, while the convenient zipper opens from the bottom first making for quick night time changes.
