In the Midwest, we have been long awaiting those sunny summer days. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some vitamin D and sunshine! Here are some of my favorite things for enjoying summer with little ones.
We all want what is best for our kids, and sunscreen seems to be one of those weird things where you have to choose between sunburns or chemicals. Thanks to ThinkBaby, you don’t have to choose between the two. I love using a stick to apply sunscreen to my little ones’ faces, and cream for the rest of their skin.
How cute are babies in sunglasses? I love them on my little guy! Babiators are fun and safe for little ones, and have a great replacement plan for lost or broken glasses (just be sure to register them online).
You are going to want to keep a Little Unicorn outdoor blanket in your car so you are ready for whatever adventures the summer brings! From the beach to a picnic at the part, these blankets are so handy. Fold them up for easy storage, and wipe them off for easy clean up.
Summer Swim Gear
Your little one is going to look super cute while being protected from harmful UV rays in the adorable swim gear from My Swim Baby. Their UV swim shirts, adorable swim diapers, and sun hats all come in bright colors and fun patterns. The hardest part will be choosing which one to get!
Simplify your summer fun by using wet bags. Keep one on hand when you go to the beach or the pool, and you’ll have a place for all of your wet swimsuits without getting everything else wet. I also love keeping small wet bags in my diaper bag to help keep my sunscreen, chapstick, and other essentials organized.
I’m looking forward to swimming, sidewalk chalk, and lots of trips to the park. How will you make memories with your little ones this summer?
