1. Beach Tote
First things first! You’re going to need a big beach tote to shove everything inside when you head to the pool or beach. Look for something that is large enough to fit everything so you don’t have to lug more then one bag.
2. SPF Included Swim Suit
You can’t forget the swim suits! Stock up and pack a few pairs. Look for swim suits that keep baby protected like an adorable gingham zip-up, UV 50+ included. And even better if it includes a rash guard.
3. Portable Cot
Weighing only 7lbs, it won’t be a ton of extra cargo to carry for the day! Bringing along a portable crib is a great place for baby to rest and take a break from the sand. The full mesh sides that un-zipper couldn’t be more perfect for a day on the beach! It’s worth every penny.
4. Sun Hat
For obvious reasons a sun hat is a must to protect baby from those hot rays in the summer heat.
5. Baby Sunglasses
Packing baby sunglasses keeps those baby eyes protected. Make sure the pair you pick is UVA and UVB protected
