It is a delight to be able to take your baby to stay with relatives. Your relatives will love meeting the new member of the family, your baby will benefit from getting to know the extended family and you will get a bit of a rest as other people are only too happy to take over looking after your baby for a while. They will enjoy looking after your baby and producing the new baby gifts that they had bought, ready for your new arrival.
It may seem too difficult to do though, as you have to plan for everything your baby will need and everything will have to be taken with you. Before you go, it is a good idea to make a list of all the things you will need; start collecting them together some days before you plan to go, so you have plenty of time to get things ready in between all the usual day to day jobs.
And don’t worry too much about forgetting things - you will be able to buy most things and it’s surprising how much you can borrow or improvise when you have to. The important thing is to enjoy the break with your baby and family.
