my belt I thought I would revisit this topic a little:
Meet the Super Brella Sport $50
Target has a version of this right now which is also $50, but from reading reviews on Amazon people are much happier with the sport version. I am pretty sure anyone taking kids to the beach, or even without kids, needs some sun shelter but here is why I like this one:
- Ultra portable because it folds up like a tailgate chair and goes in a bag
- wind resistant because of those windows on the side
- you can sit underneath it, even in chairs
- You can use it for other things like tailgating and soccer or baseball games.
- Comes in 3 colors: red, blue, green
Little Swimmers Swim Diapers
This is my favorite one because it covers the head AND the neck and has a strap. Getting my stubborn boy to WEAR it is another story.
I know that sounds like torture, and it might be, but my boy is SO white that I can not relax when he is outside unless he is as covered as possible. Sunscreen is hard to feel confident about, and pretty hard to apply to a toddler too, so just as a personal preference I like the long sleeve rash guards.
Last year when Peebs was a baby I LOVE this float:
But word on the street is the new Toddler type float is this ($20 Target) :
There are millions of sunscreens out there, but my favorite has been the Target brand spray kind because it is a very good mist so it gives great coverage quickly, it smells really nice, does not irritate my boys skin, and I can apply it quickly without him having 18 meltdowns. It is also easy to re-apply while he is playing.
Swimshoes: There was a time when I thought these were silly and unnecessary , but that was before my boy stubbed his toe while barefoot 18 thousand times and bled everywhere. Now I try to have these shoes on him every time we go outside for water play or not. They are easy to wash and basically indestructible.
What are some cool beach and pool gear that you guys love for your kids?
