A UV Tent:

Whether it's on the beach or in the garden it's important to protect your children from excess UV on sunny days, and the Babymoov Anti-UV Tent 50+ Factor UV Protection and Babymoov Anti-UV Sun Tent 50+ UPF Protection - Mariniere are ideal options!

A Blackout Blind:

If you’re looking for an aid to help your little one sleep whenever, wherever, look no further than the Clevamama Blackout Blinds! They're perfectly portable and can be put up within seconds, and will create the illusion and dim setting of night time no matter the time of day.

So, your baby can get all of the precious sleep they need this summer as you bring your blackout blind anywhere you go! 

A Baby Carrier or Sling:

A baby carrier or sling is a great option for travelling, as it means you can carry your baby hands-free whilst your baby can see the world from up high. We’re loving the Ergobaby Embrace From Newborn - Oxford Blue, which is ergonomic and cosy. The cuddly jersey fabric keeps your baby close to your heart in its natural position, and there’s no fiddly wrapping requirements, making it easy to use. It’s also compact, so you can fold it up easily into your changing bag whenever you’re on the go!

A Booster, High Chair or Bouncer

Portability is key when selecting what to bring on trips and days out, and luckily the Chicco Pocket Snack Booster Seat Violetta is a portable, travel-friendly option for taking to restaurants and on road trips and holidays! It folds easily,so much so that it fits in the basket of most strollers and pushchairs, and can be adjusted to 3 different heights to adapt to different tables, the tray also has 3 positions and can be easily removed for cleaning or easily wiped down.

A Car Seat

No car journey would be complete without a safe, sturdy car seat, and with our extensive selection, you’re sure to meet your perfect match to suit all of your needs. The Britax Romer Dualfix Black (Birth - 4 Yrs) has 360 degree rotation, so parents can choose when to switch their child from rearward to forward facing. It offers side impact protection plus performance chest pads and can accommodate the smallest child with its newborn insert for additional comfort and support. We also recommend the Britax Romer Kidfix III Sict Black (3.5 Yrs - 12 Yrs) for older children, which ergonomically optimised seating area to provide maximum comfort even for taller children.

Car Accessories:

Our selection of accessories for your car will make your travels that bit easier this season. The Outlook Auto Car Sun Shade - Double Pack is the ultimate travel essential, covering the entire the rear window to protect babies and children from the sun! it blocks up to 90% of UVA & UVB rays. Windows can also be opened or closed, even with the shade in place, letting the fresh air in and keeping the insects out. The Babydan Adjustable Rear Seat Wide Angled Mirror - Large has 360 ° vision, helping you to keep an eye on babies in rear-facing car seats, whilst the Babydan Head Rest Mounted Tablet Holder is a trusty tool to store your tablet so that your little one can watch their favourite shows on journeys.

A Changing Bag:

A changing bag is essential for keeping all of your must-haves for your baby’s trips, and the Babymoov Baby Star Changing Bag is the crème de la crème, in our opinion! It can be carried like a handbag like a handbag or across the body thanks to an additional adjustable quilted shoulder strap for complete comfort when wearing. It features premium stylish finishes for modern, active parents, and even comes with a detachable changing mat pocket with changing surface and a removable insulated bag with universal fastening system! Don’t forget to stash some snacks for mum and dad, too!

A Travel-Friendly Breast Pump:

If you’re pumping on the go, a travel-friendly breast pump is essential, preferably one which will catch let-down whilst you’re out and about. The revolutionary, award-winning Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump with Suction Base 150ml enables you to express anytime, anywhere!
