Any advice please!

Hi there,

I am fortunate to have been to Olu Deniz 3 times before but have not been for several years (mainly end May) but we are heading off for 2 weeks at end of Sept to Belcekiz.

As we now have a 5 month old baby-does anyone have any advice for travelling, feeding , sterlising, sun etc?

I love sunbathing but feel that cant do that now as no idea how to keep baby out of sun etc whilst I bake!?? has anyone managed to achieve this?

Have to admit to being bit of control freak and like to be organised for all eventualities!

Also with the US dollar being so good at moment-is it better to take sterling or buy US dollars here ,and take with us for better exchange rate?

Hi topgun71

Firstly you have made the right choice in going at the end of September rather than the hottest summer months.

Whilst i havnt ever taken any of my children abroad as babies. i know that i did buy last summer a brilliant sun shield that fits over most puschairs/prams and blocks the sun out. It is made of stretchy material and folds into a small bag.

Whilst you wont be able to sunbathe as usual, im sure that you will still get a tan through just walking around.

Its probably best to take plenty of vests for baby to wear as it will keep him/her cooler.

Have you looked at travel sterilisers? If not maybe you could take some sterilising tablets and use your sink to sterilise bottles?

I know that you can buy small travel kettles,but you may be able to organise something with the hotel/accomodation you are staying in.

I think that as long as you follow all the sensible precautions of keeping baby cool and out of direct sun with plenty of fluids then you will be fine.

Have a great holiday!

Take sterling.

By the time you've paid the commission on buying USD and then more commission to change that into YTL you'll probably have lost any advantage.
