5 Beach Baby Necessities

By caseymullins |

I’ll admit that when it came time to pack for a baby to travel to the beach for the first time in the middle of February from chilly Indiana I began by over packing. It was supposed to be kind of cold. But warmer than it was here. We’d be at the beach, only it might rain. We’d be swimming and sightseeing indoors and out…I had to be prepared! I pared things down a bit and as I unpacked her suitcase when we got back I realized that I over packed but I certainly wasn’t under prepared.

There were a few things that proved to be invaluable on our trip and for anyone about to travel with a baby (even if it’s not to a beach.)

If you’ll be spending any time outdoors with a baby in any season, these are what we loved on our trip.

UB2 Bonnet

I found out about Urban Baby Bonnets from another friend and bought one at a local boutique here in Indy. They fit like a dream (she's been wearing hers since 3 months) it's reversible and made of outrageously adorable fabrics. Winter versions lined with fleece are also available. She keeps it on with the adjustable snappy chin strap, it shields her face from the sun and it's super cute. It also has added benefits of discreet breastfeeding and it's handmade! Whee!
