Baby friendly holidays are holidays that are specifically designed to provide you and your babies with everything you might need to have a safe and relaxing time away from home.
In particular, it means you and your baby stay in stylish, baby-safe accommodation that is kitted out with all the baby equipment and baby safety features you need – everything from high chairs and baby cots to stair gates, covered electrical switches and gated swimming pools.

Like you, we take baby safety very seriously and that’s why our Tots to Travel qualified baby and child safety experts check every property on our website to ensure that the properties and the equipment they provide meet our very stringent safety requirements.
That means when you book one of the many baby friendly villas or gites on the Tots to Travel website, you can be absolutely sure that it really is a very safe baby environment.
It also means you and your baby can relax and really enjoy your holiday.
When you book baby friendly villas and baby friendly gites for your baby holidays, you can be certain that you’ll be staying at places where babies are not only welcome but celebrated and properly catered for.
Booking baby friendly vacations mean you won’t have to worry about other guests complaining if your baby cries in the night or at odd times during the day.
And the fact that your baby friendly accommodation has most if not all of the baby equipment you’ll need during your holiday makes it so much easier to pack and travel with your baby. You’ll save a lot in luggage costs too!
Unless you plan to stay with relatives or friends, your baby friendly holidays are most likely to be spent in either self-catering baby friendly villas and apartments or baby friendly hotels.
The advantage of staying in baby friendly hotels means that you don’t have to do the cooking, cleaning or even laundry.
But there are quite a few downsides to staying in hotels, compared with self-catering baby friendly boltholes.
Unless you can afford to book hotel suites, hotel rooms usually contain a bedroom area (sometimes with a small table with a couple of chairs) and a bathroom.
It might look spacious when you first plonk your cases down, but once you’ve added a cot or travel cot, suitcases, bags, car seat and pram, things get very claustrophobic.
And unless the hotel provides a baby listening or babysitting service, you’ll more than likely have to go to bed at the same time as your baby.
Alternatively, you could mute the TV or read by a dimmed light (so as not to disturb your little one) while your baby sleeps.
Your baby’s cries are more than likely to disturb the guests on either side of your hotel room or during mealtimes, which could end up being very embarrassing and stressful for you.
And what’s more, hotel cleaning staff will need to access your hotel room to change bed linen and replace wet towels. Imagine how you’ll feel when you’ve just managed to get your little one off to sleep when the hotel cleaning maid knocks on the door!
Choose self-catering baby friendly accommodation and you and your family will have a lot more space and freedom to enjoy.
When it comes to booking somewhere to stay for your holidays with children, look no further than self-catering accommodation, which Tots to Travel has in abundance.
Remember, a baby friendly holiday offers your baby a safe home away from home and gives you the opportunity to take a well-earned break in a gorgeous new environment.
