It's difficult prepare the suitcase for vacations when traveling with children, Especially if they are babies! It is very difficult to make a list of "essentials" and not end up filling the baggage with luggage that we probably will not be able to use.
Over time I have learned to simplify and now I try to take what is strictly necessary. Apart from your favorite clothes and toys, I share the accessories that I keep, or have stored at some time, in our vacation suitcase.
All parents agree to admit that the first thing kept in the suitcase when traveling with children is a first aid kit.
And with the kids, every precaution is little, and although practically anywhere we go we can find a pharmacy, it gives more security to travel with the essential products / medications that we may need at any given time. In this way, neither the bites, nor the falls or blows, nor a possible cooling will make our holidays bitter.In Babies and more On vacation with food allergies: nine tips to keep in mind

Notebooks and coloring pencils for the trip
The coloring books are somewhat helpful, easy to carry in your bag and one of the things that entertains kids of all ages. Get a good arsenal of notebooks and colored pencils for the trip is something that many parents advise.
In Amazon we can find notebooks to color, like this beautiful pad of Mandalas for 7.29 euros. Do not forget to complete it with a case of colored pencils or markers, like this one that we propose for 7.99 euros, and that we have loved for the wide variety of colors it has and its small size.

A water carrier to bathe with my baby
I'm fond of porting, and when my children were babies in my suitcase I couldn't miss a baby carrier. The water scarves or shoulder bags are perfect and comfortable for this time of year, as they allow you to enjoy a swim with your baby in the sea or the pool, or walk along the shore of the beach.
For water we propose the Sukkiri brand shoulder bag, available on Amazon for 42.97 euros, or the Vlokup brand scarf for 20.90 euros.

Your attachment doll
Many Babies and young children show special affection for a specific object; He always accompanies them and they press him against his chest when they are sleepy or disconsolate. It is the "object of attachment" or "transitional object", and is something irreplaceable for them. If your child has adopted an object of attachment you will know the importance of keeping it in your suitcase, because if you forget it at home it could be an important drama for the child.
Although the objects of attachment chosen by children can be very diverse, dou-dou (a small blanket with a stuffed animal) are often chosen very often, as they often constitute one of the first gifts of the newborn that always accompanies them.

And if your baby still does not walk or is beginning to take his first steps, another fundamental object that you should not forget is his stroller. And I make this recommendation from my own experience.
And is that one year we forgot the little one's cart at home, so we inevitably had to buy another one at our vacation spot. The new chair not only meant an extra expense, but none of us got used to it, because it did not meet the characteristics of maneuverability, folding and comfort that the other had.

If your baby already eats alone you can not do without his high chair, because it is very uncomfortable to feed him on the knees or the cart. But since it is not usually feasible to take the one we usually use at home, it is recommended resort to portable and easily foldable highchairs. There are cloth, which fold as if it were a bag and barely take up space.
The best thing is that they can adapt to any type of chair and hold the baby without risk of falling, to enjoy a family meal together. In Amazon you can find this model for 29 euros.

Your pacifiers and bottles
Many babies who use a pacifier and / or bottle are "faithful" to a particular brand or design, and it is not easy to get them to gladly accept another nipple of different characteristics.
When my oldest son was a baby, I just wanted to use pacifiers with silicone nipples, and when I offered him rubber, I rejected him, with the ensuing tantrum. So I had to travel always with a couple of spare pacifiers.

The case of my two young children was very curious, because when I started to offer them a bottle, being used for so long to breast suction, they only accepted those of the Medela brand.

Thermos for storing baby food
If your baby is only breastfeeding this point will not be necessary, but if it has already begun with complementary feeding It is essential that you get a thermos of solids where to store your hot food when you go out to eat outdoors. This we propose is the Suavinex brand and costs 18.03 euros on Amazon.
In any case, it is important to remember the foods that should be avoided when eating out in these hot months, and opt better for refreshing foods, well cooked and above all, properly preserved.

Cooking robot to prepare my baby's food
And if your baby has already begun to take solids, it might be necessary to store a travel kitchen robot in the suitcase to prepare your meals. However, this advice that I propose will depend on the place you are going to go on vacation, because if your option is a hotel it is likely that there you will prepare the daily purees for your baby.
A vacation in which we stayed in a rural house, it was very useful for me to take a small kitchen robot with which he cooked in a few minutes his vegetables or fruits. In addition, you have the option to beat the food with the texture and consistency that each one chooses. The one I recommend is this Philips Avent brand for 79.45 euros .: //www.amazon.es/dp/B06XWG3FFX%2F%3Fcstrackid%3D8ae48483-fc9d-4510-9faf-a96023fc70da%26tag%3Dbebesymas-21
