We are going to Portugal in June for a week - travelling with Jet 2. We use a Bugaboo Donkey - will we be able to use this in the airport to the steps of the plane? Do people buy the Bugaboo travel bags? What about excess baggage costs? I will be taking a Baby Bjorn sling as well. Also - any recommendations on what to pack for a 3 month old? I'm looking for advice specifically on sterlising bottles/dummies + swimwear.
happy nappy is a good reusable swim nappy we don't put anything on with it for an under 6 mo as they shouldn't be in the sunshine. I have bought some "rash vests" for mine who are a bit older and will want to crawl / play in sunshine.
We first went to Portugal with DD when she was 4 months, it was great. Second bringing Milton tabs for sterilising stuff. We use tap water and boil it for her rather than bottled. There's a really good brand of nappies over there, in a green bag, that are just like pampers and v cheap. Get a snooze shade for buggy for outdoor naps and UV protection.
We have a Bugaboo cameleon and got the travel bag, and used a sling in the airport, which worked perfectly. I have heard of a lot of nice pushchairs being ruined in the airplane hold, and we have got good value out of the travel bag. Now that DD is older we have bought a city mini for our next holiday. However, don't be tempted to bring a light buggy to Portugal with a three month old; as the cobbles everywhere will be uncomfortable for her (if she's used to a bugaboo anyway ).
