Travelling with a baby, toddler or young child can be an adventure in itself! Maintaining a routine on holiday can be hard, but many of your usual items from home can help keep the routine going. Much of the time, those items your child associates with sleep and help them feel comfortable will also help ease them in to their holiday accomodation. Bring their sleeping bag if they have one and don't forget their comforter too. A few additional items may also help remove the distraction of unfamiliar environments and noises.
Sleep trainer clocks with batteries are good for holidays as packing the transformer is one less thing to remember. If you're going to a different time zone or already use them don't forget to pack the blackout blinds. Lights Out black out blinds are a good travel friendly option and the Gro Anywhere Blackout Blind is also a popular choice.
If your child is old enough to be in a big bed or at at the stage where they're transtitioning to one, mattress protectors like the Brolly Sheets should be on your list. They're easy to fit on most holiday beds and if you're not sure of the size of the bed, get the larger size Brolly Sheet so you know you'll have it covered. If they roll around the bed and you are worried about them falling out consider taking a SnugSheet or if you have space take an inflatable bed rail, which is lightweight and won't take up much toom. Alternatively you could improvise with a pool noodle or rolled up towel if space is at a premium and some are available.
