Inside the Beach Bag: Baby Edition
As a parent, it can sometimes be a daunting task to make sure that you have everything you need for a day out, especially if you have baby or toddler. Babies, whether the first or fourth or more, require a lot of stuff. Help out the moms in your life by creating a fun beach bag gift full of the supplies that she’ll need to keep her baby happy surf side. She will love the fact that this can stay packed and ready to go at a moment’s notice. This is an easy gift to assemble even if you don’t have a DIY bone in your body and you don’t even need to wrap it up because the bag does the work for you. Just add a bow and you’re ready to go.
My favorite beach bag for babies this summer is the Pottery Barn Kids Navy Harper Tote ($49.50), which is big enough to store all your baby essentials. It also includes a changing pad and it’s in a color that Dad won’t feel weird carrying. For the mommy who needs a little more room, I recommend this spacious personalized tote from Makaboo ($50).
The most important thing your baby needs is skin protection from the sun. Look for a chemical-free broad spectrum sunscreen formulated for kid’s ages 6 months and older. Also don’t forget protective gear such as a sun hat or junior babiators sunglasses for extra added protection from harmful sun rays.
You can never over-pack when you are spending the day out with your little one. Beside bringing the super important must-haves such as diapers, blankets, hooded towel and feeding essentials. Make sure to bring a few extra changes of clothing for your baby and you. Here are a few fun summer looks!
