We are off on our first family hol to the sea side next week with S, 3 months. Weather permitting, we are hoping for some nice walks on the beach, and are planning to take him swimming at the indoor pool too. Other than some lunches out and chilling in our holiday flat (will take some games and DVDs), is there anything else we could do with our week in Blighty? Particularly if it pees it down all week!

We took D on holiday to the lake district when she was 6mths and we just did things we normally would do. Went out for lunch, mooched about shops. Is there any child friendly museums or other places where you're going!

We've just got back from Wales and, as D said, L and O were carted along to things we wanted to do. It's easier when you've just got a baby as you don't really need to entertain them. I'd check out the place you're going to and make a list of places to visit, especially for wet days. Have fun! X

We went to Wales when C was that age and did the usual sightseeing things we'd usually do. Make the most of being able to visit museums etc. while you still can. I can remember C loving the sealife centre.

Zoo or Sealife! We went to Whipsnade zoo last and LO was transfixed by underwater sealion viewing whatsit!

I hadn't thought of the sea life centre, like the idea of going somewhere he will enjoy :) we are going to Scarborough so can do lots of pottering about and also have friends to visit but I wasn't sure if there was stuff I'm missing that Sam would like though I know he's still very young!
We have never actually had a UK holiday together so not sure what we would do usually! I suppose it's the nights that will be most different with a baby as he's such a light sleeper I shouldn't think we'll be out in the evening much!

Nights on our holiday were the same as at home. Normally in bed by 9 lol.

We had a cottage when we went to Wales. We'd put C to sleep then crack open a bottle of wine and watch a film or play games, anything to make it a bit different to a normal evening at home. Where we stayed was quite secluded so it was hard to find anywhere to go at night that was suitable anyway. Enjoy making the memories. X

Daisy we will have to try and resist being in bed so early but with all that sea air will probably be the same!
LWO - that sounds lovely, I'm hoping it will be like that, need to work on getting Sam off my lap in the evening when he's asleep so I can express myself lol! Am very much looking forward to making some memories :)
