I am taking my LO to Spain in 6weeks time, she will be 6months old.
Is it best to take disposable huggies swimmers nappies or the reusable ones?
Also is it best to take our own nappies or buy when we get there?
Any other holiday tips will be much appreciated. R is breastfed but also has expressed bottles & one formula bottle a day.

You know you can re-use the disposable huggies swimmers don't you ? Just rinse them out and let them dry as long as not pooed in, you can usually get about 4 wears out of them.
As for nappies I guess it depends on where you are going. When we go to Orlando we know we are going to be doing a shopping trip so just take enough for the first couple of days, when we have been on a package holiday to Greece we took them all with us as we had no plans to leave the hotel and didn't want to be finding shops etc.

No I didn't know you can reuse huggies that's great i'll get them!!
We are going on a package holiday unsure of supermarkets around & don't plan on leaving hotel much, probs best for me to take my own nappies.
Thanks for the advice

We went on an AI holiday to Majorca when Heidi was 4 months. I took 1 swim nappy a day (used 2). I also took enough nappies for the whole week. I split the packets over everyone's suitcases so they didn't take up loads of room in one.
H is FF so I had two tubs of formula with us, sealed in the suitcase.
I had a giant muslin, which I had over her when she fell asleep in the day. We bought our five year old a rubber boat and H loved sitting in that with her toys!

That's a good idea spreading nappies over suitcases. R uses a tub of formula every 4weeks, I may just take 1/4 of a tub.
I was just about to store our large muslins away for next baby as R is rarely sick, I will keep a few out great idea!! I have got a thin dressing gown for R for when just out the pool as when I get out the pool i'm freezing cold for 5mins until I warm back up.
A boat is a great idea I was thinking how can we entertain her round the pool as she gets very bored.
Thanks for the tips
