Our Baby Holiday Packing List for Dubai!

Our Baby Holiday Packing List for Dubai!

Hey All!
A few of you have asked me to post my holiday packing list for Arjun. Remember though that it depends on the age of your child and also the destination and duration.
This packing list is for our holiday to Dubai for ten nights when Arjun will be 7.5 months old.
We didn’t take a car seat as the hotel provided us with one.
Here goes …
Hand Luggage (we use a carry on suit case plus Arjun’s change bag)

· Ready made pouches – although Arjun is on solids, we will be taking pouches for convenience. For example sometimes Preetam and I don’t have lunch on holiday (after a hefty breakfast) so taking a pouch would be easy as Arjun would still need to eat.
· Baby snacks – biscuits and baby crisps. We will use fresh fruit when there.
· Steriliser – we use a cold water steriliser with Milton sterilising tablets. Hotels are generally happy to provide you with a steriliser provided you ask in advance. I just prefer taking our own.
· Milton sterilising tablets
· Bottle brush
· Fairy liquid to wash bottles and bowls – I take a little in a travel sized bottle
· Sleeping bag
· Blankets – that smell of home
 YoYo Presentation Russia (06-12)
· Snooze shade

· Baby carrier
· Travel pushchair – our one is the Baby Zen YoYo
· Short sleeve vests – we barely used them last time we went as it was so hot there was no need
· Sleeveless vests – I just love how cute these look with shorts!
· Short rompers – perfect for the heat. I’m taking five this time for ten days. I wish I had more but can’t justify spending more on summer clothes when he’s only going to get to wear them in Dubai!
· Baby grows – we only used these for bed time
· A shirt – he’ll probably only dress semi smart one night for our anniversary!
· T Shirts – plenty to pair up with shorts/trousersbaby clothes
· Polo shirts – for slightly smarter wear
· Dungarees
· Cardigan/Jumper for the breezier nights
· Shorts – taking five pairs
· Joggers – for lounging in the room
· Jeans – for the cooler nights
· Chinos
· Going home outfit
· Pram suit for coming home
· Socks
· Sun hats – I love fisherman hats!
· Shoes – even though he can’t walk, I’m a sucker for cute things!
· Laundry bags
Other bits that you may need (depending on your little one/destination):
· Pacifiers
· Breast pump
· Nipple cream
· Breast pads
· Feeding cover
· Bath support
· Car seat
And, don’t forget baby’s PASSPORT! J
I hope you find this useful! Let me know if I’ve missed anything! x

    I am extremely inspired along with your writing talents as smartly as with the layout in your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you customize it your self? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today..

    Hi! Nice post. Your packing list included exactly the same things like mine. Everything mentioned I am taking for my little one too. I always pack more than the necessary, but just to be sure that my daughter is not gonna run out of clothes or underwear.
