Henry’s summer wardrobe from Next (and packing tips)

While I dusted down some of my old beach dresses, a couple of one piece and tankini saviours (having chucked all my bikinis away – because no one wants to see this midrift) and a few colourful pairs of flip flops and pom pom sandals that make an annual appearance, Henry was loving life on our family holiday to Spain wearing a fabulous summer 2018 wardrobe from Next.*

In this post I’m sharing Henry’s holiday fashion on our recent trip to Spain and also some tips about what clothing to pack for your toddler/kids when travelling abroad during the warmer months.

Having to select just a small number of fun, natural and memorable photos from around 500 I took,  (whilst sifting out about 200 blurry shots – because toddlers don’t sit still for photos) has been a difficult task to say the least…

I’ve linked all of the outfits, including mine, at the end of the post…

Festive baby fashion from Next

With a son born so close to Christmas (23rd December to be precise – and trust me I did everything I could to get him out 15 days prior on his due date!) it would be rude of me not to embrace the Christmas spirit by bringing some festive fun to his wardrobe!

A holiday abroad with a baby – what to pack

Following from my “flying for the first time with a baby” (historically one of my all time most commented, clicked and shared posts – THANK YOU!), it taught me that perhaps more of those kind of informative posts could be of help and interest to fellow newish mothers like me, especially when it come to travel.

For that reason I want to share with you my baby packing check list when going on a (summer) overseas holiday with a baby. I’ve shared this list already with a few friends (who know I have a spreadsheet for everything in life!) and I also received DMs on Instagram from those replying to my Instastories with questions during our recent (and first family summer) holiday to Menorca.

I hope you or a friend/relative find this useful and please let me know if you have any suggestions to add. I’ve linked to some of the products (not sponsored!) for ease for you to click/browse/purchase.

So here goes, my checklist for going on a summer holiday with a baby…
