Summertime is here! The weather where I'm at in Southern California has been hovering around 80-90+ degrees. It's just perfect for going to the pool, beach or splash pad. In our housing community, we have two pools and a splash pad at the local park, plus, we can hop in the car and drive about an hour and be at the beach. We have so many options nearby to be outside, in the sun and in the water! During the summer, I make a point of always having a pool/beach bag packed with fresh supplies. What are my summer cloth diapering "must-haves"? Here's a peek at what I keep stocked in our pool and beach bag:
I love, love, love swim reusable swim diapers. It is so nice to be able to wash and reuse them! No worrying about running out of disposables or having to spend money on multiple packs of swim diapers. Just grab them and go! I love the Bummis Swimmi Diaper with it's velcro closure. I can always get a snug fit and I don't have to try to wrestle a wet swim diaper off! I have two, that way I have a spare, just in case!
UV Swim Shirts
These are a great way to help protect your little ones skin, without having to spend the extra time to slather sunscreen over a wiggly chest. Also, with a Swim Shirt or Tankini, you don't have to worry about water washing away the UV protection (like with sunscreen). I love the fun, bright colors of the Bummis Sun Line UV-Tee and it has a Ultraviolet Protection Factor rating of 50!
Little Riley has fine, thin hair and a Swim Hat is the perfect way to keep his little head shaded from the suns rays. The Bummis Sun Line Sun Cap matches their swim diapers and is also has a Ultraviolet Protection Factor rating of 50 for some serious sun protection!
This is the perfect way to add some style to an outfit and keep eyes protected from the sun bouncing off the water and sand. You can even match your little ones sunglasses to their swimsuit!
Definitely a must-have to protect new baby skin (and adult skin too) safe from sunburns. I really love using Episencial Sunny Sunscreen. It has SPF 35 and UVA+B protection, it is made with natural and organic ingredients, it is gentle and goes on easily. It is perfect for our whole family! I actually keep sunscreen in my pool/beach bag and my diaper bag during the summer. You just never know when you'll end up needing it! We use sunscreen when we are at the pool or beach, at the farmer's market, the zoo or any time we end up being outside for awhile. Sunburns are not cute!
I also keep a few towels with my pool/beach bag and before we head out, I make sure to fill up our reusable water bottles and grab some fruit and snacks in our reusable snack bags.
