The Bahamas with a Baby, Toddler or Young Child

You will be able to find all your baby and toddler essentials in the Bahamas. Many of the larger resorts such as the Atlantis will sell supplies such as nappies and wipes however, these can be very expensive. Local shops offer products at more reasonable prices and you should be able to find plenty of supermarkets in the busier tourist areas which sell formula, food, nappies, wipes and other essentials. There are also companies that arrange deliveries to your hotel which is handy if you don’t feel like going out in a taxi to pick up supplies.

Water Quality in the Bahamas

Technically the tap water in the Bahamas is drinkable however, it is best to opt for bottled water, particularly when giving it to babies and toddlers. According to the CDC, resorts tend to filter and chlorinate tap water more aggressively than other establishments; elsewhere, bottled water is available at stores and supermarkets, and tastes better than that from a tap. On many of the Out Islands, rainfall is the main source of water — so be sure to drink bottled water there.
