Travelling to your destination:
So, this is (for me anyway) the most stressful and uncomfortable part of the holiday. For some, you will be getting up early, before sunrise, before the temperature has risen and therefore you will want your little ones to be dressed in clothing that accommodates this.
Some of you may also be travelling by aeroplane or have long car journeys ahead of you, so if we can eliminate one stress factor by keeping those little ones comfortable, then we will do just that.
Our perfect travelling outfit picks:
For the little girls:
Product details: Baby stripe t-shirt, Baby Stripe leggings, Baby Stripe Bodysuit, Baby Hooded Jumper
For the little boys:
Product details: Baby Stripe leggings, Striped baby suit, Baby Hooded Jumper, Baby Joggers
The brand: Serendipity Organics
Why we love it: The sweet Scandinavian brand ensures that all of their products are made from 100% Organic materials and coloured using dyes that are free from pesticides and harmful chemicals, this makes them the perfect essentials to travel in. However you are travelling to your destination, it is almost guaranteed that your little ones are going to warm up quickly, therefore it is imperative that the clothes they are wearing are kind to their skin. When wearing clothes that are NOT organic, as the body warms up, chemicals are released from the clothing into the skin. Often harmful chemicals are used in the production of non organic materials and in the dyes used to colour these materials, the result of this on your children skin for long periods of time could be irritation, rashes or even eczema. Organic clothing is free of these harmful attributes and as a result, kinder to our little ones skin. We stock Serendipity Organics from sizes 0-2 years old in a range of colours and styles.
