Dani Venn Family , Travel You may have noticed that I have fallen off the blogging bandwagon of late. The truth is I have never wanted to travel to Bali. I think it was the vision of culturally inappropriate Kuta bogans swilling Bintang beer in their matching souvenir singlets that always put me off wanting to travel there.
But an invitation to a friends wedding changed all that and I am so glad that it did because it really is an incredible place to visit. Book into one preferably before your baby is born or before they start eating solids. But bless the souls in Bali who cleverly have set-up baby and toddler equipment hire for as little as a few dollars a day. That means you can hire a plethora of things like cots, monitors, high chairs, bottle sterilisers, toys, car seats, sun shades, etc etc without worrying about going over your 20kg bag limit.
Your Bug-a-Boo might be your pride and joy but for goodness sakes do not pack it. Get yourself an el cheapo small stroller from Target or Kmart and take that instead. For little bubs that need a bassinet, take a carry pack instead and hire a pusher over there.
Carnevale and its team in Soumossou, Bobo-Dioulasso, Africa. A Permethrin treatment lasts approximately 6 months depending on net storage and use.
Do pack nappies, swimmer nappies, wipes, formula if using , baby creams, baby and toddler food and snacks, these things are expensive and hard to come by. Time your feeds for taking off and landing and their ears will naturally pop.
If you are travelling with a toddler, well, sorry your plane ride is not going to be as pleasant as it once was.
So my advice to you is pack loads of food and snacks. I think the other parents felt sorry for Harlow sucking puree from a squeezy bag so they offered her their food.
Travel friendly toys and books. Take as much as you can fit into your already bulging handbag. Baby capsules are a rarity in Bali, so you may find you just have to hold your baby instead. Honestly, this place is the stuff dreams are made of and it even comes with Kadek, the house keeper, who can help out with the kids whilst you can work on your tan.
There is a god! The villa is located down a lush laneway that is quite and secluded but is right around the corner from cafes, rice paddies and the beach.
You can even order meals in which we may have done a few too many times but when Nasi Goreng is only a phone call away…. We hired a scooter to get around because Canggu is easy to ride around, unlike neighbouring Seminyak!
Canggu is also home to an epic waterpark Splash and play centre the kids will love! If you do choose to stay at Villa Rona, make sure to mention The Wholehearted Cook as the gorgeous Ratna owner of the property may throw in a special freebie for you! You can book also via AirBnb. If you are staying in a villa that has an open pool with no fencing fork out the extra dollars for a temporary pool fence, it is worth every cent for peace of mind and so that you can relax.
Pool fun with dad! EATING I have always been one for Harlow to taste everything I am eating, however please exercise caution when introducing new foods to your baby in Bali as they may have an allergic reaction. Unfortunately we found out Harlow has a cashew allergy after eating some dip, instant hives and two very scared parents! If you missed my very first tip it is to do an infant CPR course, trust me, seeing your baby choke is the scariest thing you may experience.
Is it easy to out up and down? Refunds and Exchanges Error by Goarmy:
Stock up on these as you will need them when you are out and about. The Balinese are very helpful people, if you ask for baby food puree, extra soft, well cooked they will oblige and make it specially for you.
Harlow loving her Nalu smoothie bowl! I recently discovered Medela Quick Clean bags which are super convenient that you pop your bottle and accessories into and place in the microwave for 3 minutes, you can use each bag up to 20 times also. Wish I had known about these before I left!
Bring formula if you are using, you can also easily purchase UHT long life milk, which is easy to source if your baby drinks milk. It is quite expensive to get in though so I suggest you make the most of your time there and enjoy the many activities. In saying that, we stayed for no more than a few hours as I pulled my neck out and then Harlow cracked it and wanted to go to sleep.
Harlow enjoying her first safari experience! Often we would pop Harlow to bed and then the nanny would sit outside our room or in our villa. And we got a night out on our own. Imagine you have one whole week to nourish your body with delicious wholefoods.
One week to nurture your soul with sunrise salutations and twilight cocktails. One week just for you. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, check out all the goodness on The Wholehearted Wellness Retreat page. This post has turned into a mega blog! But I hope that you find it helpful if you are travelling to Bali with babies and toddlers as it really is a magical place to relax and enjoy some quality family time together.
We had the best holiday and can not wait to return one day! One more Harlow snap, because she is so damn cute and loved getting the tropical fruit all over her face!
