Definitely need to take baby. wink

Seriously, I haven't been to a Mark Warner resort but in general, I'd take a few nappies - enough for the first 3-4 days and then buy some more when you get there.

I can't really answer about formula because my dd was 15mo before we went abroad with her.

The Mark Warner website would have been your first port of call:

" Children's Equipment - In our resorts which offer Baby or Toddler Clubs we supply travel cots, steam sterilisers, nappy changing facilities, baby baths and potties. Nappies, processed food and powdered milk can all be purchased locally but if your child is used to a particular brand, we suggest you bring your own supplies."

At the kids high tea they provide pureed fruit and food suitable for a baby.

I went on a MW to Lakitira recently and you did have to take formula and nappies. Did put DD into the evening creche and they said they had no nappies for her hmm

We were in Corsica last year with 2yo. The French nappies from the supermarket were great, better fit than the UK ones tbh, I was quite sad when we finished the packet. Take nappy sacks though, could not find those anywhere. Wipes were also fine, if rather perfumed IIRC.

We were not using formula but I think there was a pretty good selection of everything, if not in the supermarket then the pharmacies are huge, glossy and well stocked (more like perfume dept of a big store). Bastia has excellent shops.

Sorry cannot resist a envy do have a really great time.
