We're going to Butlins (Bognor Regis) on Monday DS2 is on prescription milk and is 10 months, I've always gone abroad and all inclusive so no Idea what to take! We've got the dining plan so it's only lunch that we'll need. So far we have;

Ds2's milk
food for DS2
swimming costumes for everyone
towels for everyone
DS1's blanket
travel cot

That's all I can think of, is that it or am I missing somethign?!

Since it's going to be bloody freezing for the foreseeable future I would suggest lots of warm clothing!

So is it self catering for lunch and are you going to sort food or just buy it? If it's self catering I usually take tea, milk, butter, cheese, ham, tuna, salt & pepper, ketchup, HP oil, vinegar, beans, bread, snacks, fruit, soft drinks, booze. Foil and Tupperware is useful. As is a wiping cloth, washing up liquid, tea towel but that might be provided.

Bibs / bowls / booster seats / cutlery for DCs? Puzzle books / toys 4 kids? Small, quiet and portable.

Didn't even think about tea bags! Dp would be livid with no tea haha

The food is really expensive - there is a wetherspoons down the road which is alot cheaper for lunch stuff like coffee is about£3 so I would consider at least taking snacks and drinks bottles.

Hi Mama We got on great really loved it. Tbh we didn't need to take much as we brought lunch there! We did see another family though take a load of bread from the toasting station and bacon from the serving bit and they said they just reheated the bacon in the microwave lol! Suppose that saves you some money!

We took enough outfits for 4 days so 4 pj's, 4 tops, 4 trousers, 4 pants, 4 socks and jackets as it was pretty windy. Swimming costumes, armbands/rubber ring and towels. Shower gel, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toys for the baby, travel cot, juice, milk and bottles for the baby, cookies, crisps, chocolate bars, money for the arcade. That was about it I believe! hope you have fun!
