Hi All. I’m off to Lanzarote for a fortnight with my 8mo. Has anyone who has been recently tell me how easy it is to get hold of formula (we use Aptamil), baby food like Ella’s and nappies. We’ve only got 20kg of luggage allowance and I don’t want to use it all up with stuff I can get out there. Thanks!

If you don't get replies here, I found the Lanzarote threads on Tripadvisor were useful as locals (often Brits) came on with regular advice. Our DD was about 5 when we went so I can't answer your questions ahout baby gear.

What part of the island? Will you have a hire car?

We definitely got Pampers nappies fine on the island. Bit more expensive than at home. Could you put some formula in your hand luggage (extra 10kg allowed usually)?

We’ll be near Playa Blanca and have a car.

Playa Blanca has a very active FB page.

There's 2 big supermarkets by the airport, and a big Spar in centre of PB.

I don't recall seeing aptamil though. You could email the Spar?

You can also do a click and collect from boots at the airport!
