    Packing baby clothes for a holiday

    Julian had his first holiday this week! He coped so well with long car trips and sleeping in strange places. It was lovely to get away from home and show him some more of this beautiful world. When packing for the trip I decided to put Julian’s outfits in separate sealed bags.

    OCD packing

    I’m so glad I did as it saved so much time just to pull out a bag of clothes for warm weather, cold weather or sleep and know that everything was in there. No digging for tiny clothes in a big bag. I am slowly learning the ways of the organised mother. I may have to be stopped from organising his entire wardrobe into bags.

    Here’s a few shots of our first family holiday!
