Definitely look into if you can hire one while over there. We went to spain last year and found a firm that hire anything and everything baby equipment wise and it was actually really cheap.
If you can't and you have to take one with you then i wouldn't worry too much about the luggage allowance you are left with. We've flown as a family of 4 with something like 45kgs in total and found that we didn't actually need it all - and we have two children who attract dirt as if they are magnets!!
I tried goggling it earlier but there doesn't seem to be any hire places near, its a pretty small quite town so I'm not surprised really.
Really, 45kgs was enough for you all? I guess I'm just panicking as obviously I don't want to go over and get a charge. What with nappies, wipes, suncream etc etc I seem to be taking the whole house

Hope you find something that works for you
My dad said to do this but I'm pretty sure she won't stay put and the last thing I want is to have to have a battle at nap and bedtime every day, won't make for a fun holiday
glad to know I'm not the only one stressing about it
It's amazing how little you can get away with taking. I'm the original 'take as much as you can' and 'i need a change of clothes for every day and every evening plus one spare for each day'. Having had children i've had to reduce the amount of stuff that i take. I even do things like only take 4 bibs and i wash them in the sink. The same with my knickers and lo's bodysuits. Both of mine are also in nappies (eldest just at night) and they both need swim nappies and they are the worse thing. We usually end up with nappies everywhere - main luggage, hand luggage, pockets
If you need to take your own, try the little life arc travel cot...folds up really small and light too x
We have this and took it to Australia with us for our LO although she was only 5 months old at the time. It was ace. It dismantles really easily so during the day we took it to the beach as you can also buy a UV cover for it. Try searching on E-Bay for it - there were loads on there when we were looking although we ended up buying ours brand new.
