Baby C is 10 weeks old already. It’s scaring me just how quickly its going. He has already gone from a cute little bundle of sleep and silence to a gurgling smiley even bigger ball of cuteness! (I know I’m biased but he really is cute!) For my birthday Mr. C has booked us a stay in a country lodge – hot tub included (yes, the guy did good) and it’s in a few months. I’m so excited but so scared at the same time! Our first trip away with a baby! I travelled so much last year (it was all booked before I was pregnant – so technically Baby C did loads of travelling in my belly!) I went to Wales, Amsterdam, Turkey and Canada just to name a few and of course we’d love to take Baby C abroad, I mean everyone keeps badgering on about the fact he will be ‘free’ until he is 2. But the holiday hazards are a lot to take in by myself let alone with a baby!
When you’re on holiday you tend to be a bit more care free right? Well I am, and some research carried out and shown in the imagery below confirms what I thought. 38% of people are more care free when on holiday. Well, one things for sure, this wont be the case when we go away with Baby C! The top tips below are all about how to avoid a holiday disaster… I am paying close attention!
I always buy insurance, always have and always well. It’s one of those things where you just never know if you might need it. The one time I don’t get it I bet I’ll end up with a broken leg or something. As well as insurance, it’s always handy to have the contact details of a legal team to hand JUST in case. Maybe this is the mummy concern I have but this is a great idea. If anything did go wrong, and you did have a holiday disaster would you even know who to call or what to do? Having the contact details for someone like jefferies-solicitors.com is a really good idea. If the worst was to happen you can grab some advice and they’ll talk you through making a claim. I think this is great peace of mind. Especially with the research showing that 20% of people asked had suffered an incident in some form on holiday.
As for the other tips mentioned in the tips to avoid holiday disasters – bottled water is a must. It doesn’t matter where I am, I’ll fork out for bottled water, even more so with Baby C around and of course there’s the normal things like sun cream, being aware of your surroundings and having back up money or a card just in case.
