I’m still reminiscing until further notice. This is somewhat of a repost from last year when Jayden was 14 months.
This summer was the first summer that Jayden had the opportunity to actively play outside as a young toddler. At this age, he doesn’t take much to please, so we didn’t want to over prepare for the season. Here are 6 summertime favs for our boy.
1. Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy
This is not your typical inflatable baby float. It is covered in a mesh material which in my opinion makes it more durable and less likely to puncture. There are two inner tubes which inflate in seconds. The adjustable and removable canopy provides shade on sunny days. Jay enjoys traveling around the pool at his great grandma’s house in the spring float. We prefer to keep it inflated, but it deflates and folds to fit back in the included carry and storage bag.
2. Baby Banz Sunglasses
These stylish and durable shades give the eyes a break from all of the squinting that bright beams of sunshine may inflict on the little one. These shades are attached to a wrap around band that adjusts to fit growing noggins.
3. Imse Vimse Swim Diaper
For the price of a pack of disposable swim diapers, you get a cute little reusable diaper that is easy on the tushie and won’t end up residing in landfills for years.
4. UV Skinz
For the price of a couple bottles of sunscreen you get fashionable sun protection that won’t rub off or expire. I get enough of rubbing creams and oils all over him. I get somewhat of a break when he goes outside armed in his UV Skinz.
5. Intex Sunshade Pool*
Although this pool is recommended for children three years old and up, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be suitable for younger children under close supervision. Fill it up halfway, or even a fourth. Jay loves splishin’ and splashin’ in his mini pool. It’s just like being in the tub, but more entertaining.
6. Hugs, Not Bugs! Natural Herbal Insect Repellent
This is a deet- and paraben-free insect repellent for the little ones. I can spitz this over Jay without worrying if it’s going to burn his skin, eyes or nose. It has a fresh lemony-citrus scent, I almost want to use it as a body splash.
