Baby holiday essentials for your family holiday


  3 minute read

Summer is here, and for many of you it might be time to plan that first unforgettable getaway as a family of more than two. But what essentials should you pack for your baby's capsule holiday wardrobe? Get ready for a sun-soaked season with your little one, as we highlight the top five must-have baby clothing essentials for your summer escapades.


Sun-safe swimsuit


Before your baby takes the plunge, you should make sure they're protected from the sun. Seek out swimwear made from UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) fabric that acts as a superhero shield against harmful rays. With long sleeves and extra coverage for those precious little legs, your baby will be the trendiest and safest beach babe in town.

It's always important to protect your baby's head from the sun on your holidays or in sunny weather at home. Wide brims, vibrant colours, and all the protection from the sun, hats not only shield your little one's face, neck, and ears from the sun's rays, but they also make a fashion statement, too. Choose sunhats made from organic cotton or natural fibres for a breathable and comfy experience for your baby, to be extra sustainable this summer.



Shorts and Short-Sleeved T-Shirts


Get set for some summertime fun with lightweight and breezy shorts and short-sleeved t-shirts. Short sleeved outfits will keep your baby cool and content in the summer heat. Picture your little adventurer exploring sandy shores and picnic spots, with elastic waisted shorts and swimming trunks for boys, these sustainable pieces are as practical as they are stylish.

Short-Sleeved bodysuits


Short-sleeved bodysuits are a great option during those hotter days - with or without shorts or leggings - to keep them cooler. These versatile essentials can be mixed and matched with other clothing items, creating perfect outfits for any occasion. With easy popper closures for those lightning-fast nappy changes, you'll be ready to tackle any adventure that comes your way.




When the sun is shining its brightest or your little one needs a break from the rays, lightweight cardigans are essential. Opt for cardigans which are airy and loose-fitting, allowing your baby to stay comfortably cool. You can throw these over swimsuits by the pool or pair with shorts and bodysuits and help regulate your baby's temperature easily if it needs to be removed.


Pop some of these summer baby clothes essentials into your suitcase this season and know that they will both be protected from the sun and comfortable in those higher temperatures.
