BABY TRAVEL TIPS


Consider upgrading to business class: The extra space you get is useful and usually cheaper than paying for a whole extra seat in economy. Avoid flying over bedtime on short-haul flights. Be prepared for tears at naptimes when the lights and

The highly-qualified, English-speaking staff were baby- charmers and after eating, napping and playing happily, my little Picasso presented me with his first ever painting when I went to pick him up. Refreshed from a long lunch of octopus and white wine at the Pelagos pool restaurant followed by sunbathing and lazing at the spa, I felt like I’d had a lick of new paint too. Anassa is superb, and can provide an uncompromising level of luxury for customers happy to pay. For those seeking something a little more

can be sunbathing breaks. Give the baby time to settle into their new environment before starting childcare:
