I'm looking to book a skiing holiday for the first time with our DD. She will be 7 months old in March when we are looking to go. Adults are all good skiers and have always gone catered chalet. What works best with baby in terms of accommodation and where has the best creche facilities?

Family Ski Company tick all the boxes. Stayed with them when DD was 6 mths and all went well - don't stay high though - babies don't like being at altitude!

Switzerland in general - it's the a destination where local laws means that all creches are of a very high standard and well staffed.

We went to La Tania with a chalet company called Le Ski. We stayed in the chalet which had the crèche on the ground floor - it saved having to get DD into her outdoor gear and having to take her somewhere in the morning. The crèche met UK nursery ratios, CRB checks and the nursery staff are English speaking (Brits or Aussies etc). La Tania is in the 3 Valleys with lifts into Courchevel 1850 - so plenty of good skiing to be had.

This year we're going to a chalet hotel with in-house crèche with Esprit ski.

Thanks all. If DD had never been to nursery or creche of any kind by that age, will that be ok, will she cope? How long did you leave your DC's at the creche if you were in a similar situation?

I think it's difficult to say - DD was never clingy but some of her friends were at that age. We chose to stay in a chalet which had the creche in so that the creche wasn't in yet another new place. The creche staff tested us during the day to let us know how she'd been and what she'd been up to - if she been upset I'm sure they would've let us know so one of us could ski back. It's difficult because you have to book the creche place in advance.

The creche staff didn't 'test' us - they texted us
