I know, I know super late post again. Well this is supposed to be made last month but my brain wanted to only receive information and not create an output. So there.
Anyway, summer is here and Una loves this season because she have more time to play in the water. I am so blessed that she was never scared of taking a bath or taking a dip in the pool. And with how our house always felt like a sauna inside, I always made her stay in her baby tub a bit longer.
Did you know that we already had our summer out of town trip last month? Yup! We went to Subic! But first, we have to be prepared of what to be expected in the beach.
Here are just some of the summer essentials — not just for the baby, toddlers and kids but for the adults too — that will help you fully enjoy the summer sun and ensure child safety.
- First aid kit – must have especially when travelling with a toddler
- Kid’s sunblock – choose a trusted brand for your sunblock. Make sure to re-apply the sunblock after staying in the water or every two hours.
- Proper swimming attire – Please parents, make an effort to buy proper swimsuit for your kids. There was a time that we stayed away from the pool in our resort because there was a little boy swimming without anything on. No malice there, just think of what your child will feel if he sees a photo of him naked in a public place once he’s older.
- Sunglasses – Just like us adults, the kids also need sunglasses to protect their eyes from the sun. Sadly, Una left her sunglasses in our hotel in Subic.
- Beach Toys – what’s a trip to the beach without the beach toys? Una definitely loved playing in the sand and tried making castles.
- Water bottle – even if you don’t feel thirsty, it is better to get hydrated so always bring your water with you.
- Towels or bathrobe – to keep your kiddos dry while resting from playtime.
- Swimming floaters – Recommended especially to those who doesn’t know how to swim yet.
- Baby Lotion – this is mild and will help moisturize the dry skin brought by exposure in the sun
- Baby Powder – this will help you easily remove the sand from your kids body. Logically, the body must be dry for this little trick to work.
That’s all I can think of as of now because that’s what we brought with us.
