Nothing gets everyone into the swing of summer like an incredible day at the beach. If you’ve got a new baby, or even a small toddler at home, you might be wondering how best to enjoy the beach while keeping them safe. Discover the best baby beach essentials below to enjoy a day of fun in the sun with your little one.
Baby’s and toddlers require a lot of extra things as they head out for a beach day. The sun and heat can be harsh even on adults, and for little babies and very small kids, it has the potential to cause even more damage. Make sure your beach outing is both fun and safe by ensuring you’ve got everything you need for a baby beach day.
Bringing along a bottle of baby sunscreen is one of the most important things you can do to keep your little one safe from the sun. Babies are very fragile and their skin is very prone to burning in the hot rays. Ensure you have a bottle of sun protection specifically designed for small ones, as it will provide the best protection while being safe for their skin. Avoid sprays, as lotions and creams provide the best coverage. Reapply as needed, to keep them safe all day long!
This might seem like a no brainer, but if they want to splash around in the waves then your tiny tyke is going to need their own swimsuit. For toddlers and small babies, its best to find a suit that allows for easy access to their swim diapers or pull ups. If you want to keep your baby covered up as you take them into the water, a baby rashguard or even an old tshirt helps keep the sun off them as they enjoy the waves.
Even with all the sunscreen slathered on their skin, babies, toddlers and small children are still at risk for burning. For an extra layer of protection, bring along a baby beach tent or umbrella to provide shade. This is especially important if you’re going on a very clear day with no clouds.
Keeping your baby fed and happy is another essential element to having a fun day at the beach. If you’re breastfeeding or bottle feeding, it’s important to keep your baby fed and hydrated throughout the day to keep them safe from the heat. If your baby or toddler is weaned, ensure you pack a cooler full of healthy snacks and drinks to keep them energized as they enjoy the beach.
The beach is all about fun, so after you’ve guaranteed your little one will be safe and protected throughout the day, the next step is to bring along toys for them to play with.
