We are off to Cyprus in a few weeks and it’s our first time abroad with our 16month DD.

I’m tying to make a list of things to pack and need some help.

So far I’ve bought the obvious items such as insect repellent for kids, calpol, lots of sun cream, and UV swim outfits, swim nappies etc but now I’m getting stuck so wondered what everyone else found useful to take away with them … any suggestions are welcome.

Some sort of insect bite relief stick or spray.

Thanks for those so far guys - I've now already added talc, travel wash/pegs/string to my list – keep em coming

that’s a good one with the bite relief - but is there one specifically for children as I haven’t seen one – or could I just use an adult one (though surely it would be to strong?)

Mosiguard can be used on children

what's wrong with shower gel??

What about putting some fairy into a small bottle and taking it with you for any handwashing if that is what you mean by travel wash.

or persil liquid or whatever you normally use...

Buy a shade-a-babe instead of a soppy parasol or canopy. Absolutely wonderful for blocking sun and insects. Best £30 I ever spent.
