A day at the beach is a great way to spend a hot summer day. The thought of how hectic it can get with a baby can be enough to make you want to abandon the sun and sand. It doesn’t need to be that way though – with a well-stocked beach bag, you can be ready for anything.
Sure, travelling with a baby is not always easy, but it’s easier to enjoy if you plan ahead and stay organized for a fun and safe day out.
How to Pack for the Beach with a Baby
AVEENO® Baby Sensitive Skin Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 is a trusted part of our sun-safe strategy to help keep baby’s skin healthy, nourished and protected from damage. It absorbs easily and provides great waterproof coverage for not only our littlest one, but for our preschooler as well.
We also use AVEENO® Baby Sensitive Skin Mineral Sunscreen Face Stick SPF 50 which provides all the same protection as the lotion but makes applying to baby’s face super easy.
Keep wet swimsuits, towels and other damp items separate from dry items with a wet bag. These are available where you find cloth diapers sold if you don’t already have one. You can also simply recycle an old grocery bag to help maintain separation.
Talc-Free Baby Powder
Nobody likes vacuum up a pile of sand at the end of a day at the beach or finding it days later in your stroller, your bag and hundreds of other places. Help get rid of unwanted sand by rubbing a little baby powder onto your baby’s skin. The powder absorbs moisture and the sand simply falls right off.
Protective swimming hats
You will want to protect little heads from the summer sun by packing a hat made with UPF material to provide another layer of sun protection for your baby.
Regular & Swim Diapers
Swim diapers will hold in the solids but won’t help you with liquids so be sure to remember to bring along regular diapers for when you leave the beach.
