Summer is here!! After a chilly spring, I welcome the sunshine and am ready to spend my weekends at the pool and the beach. Here’s what I’m carrying with me to the beach and the pool this summer.
Beach & Pool Gear for 2 & 3 Year Olds
Beyond Coastal Sunscreen
Love this sunscreen. I have very, VERY fair skin that burns the second I walk into the sun. Sunscreen is my friend, and my husband talked me into Beyond Coastal. I went out two days in a row, no burn. I lathered up my sweet little 3 year old… and it protected his skin, too. I got a little (teeny tiny) bit of tan without the burn. Maybe I won’t be pasty white all summer!
I discovered this amazing little swimming contraption last year. At 2, and now 3, he can swim by himself with the puddle jumper. It’s better than water wings because it keeps his head above water. So we can splash and swim around the pool without me holding on to him the entire time. We had a BLAST this past weekend in the pool. Our son loved swimming from one end to the next with me. Also, jumping into the pool over and over again was a fun activity (and workout for my arms!)

Cute Beach Bags to store all of your stuff
Choosing the right pool and beach bag for the summer can be about as tough as choosing the perfect diaper bag. Here are some things to consider:
- Pockets: you’ll need side pockets to easily grab your phone, wallet, camera, and car keys. It’s no fun hunting around for these small items in a bag stuffed with swim diapers, pool toys, snacks, towels, and clothes.
- Waterproof bag: one of my beach bags has a cute waterproof zipper bag that hooks on to the side of the bag, perfect for storing a cell phone.
- Size: you have a lot to carry. Towels are bulky. You need a big bag!
- Style: You need it to be a cute beach bag, right?!
