Who’s ready for some fun in the sun? Spring break, warmer weather and vacations are getting closer. We want to share two of our must-haves for beach and pool days. We have included discount codes below if you would like to add our favorites to your own pool bag!
Sunscreen is important year-round but especially important during the spring and summer when more skin is exposed. Our must-have is Adorable Baby Sunscreen from Loving Naturals. Conventional sunscreens can have toxic ingredients. According to the EWG (Environmental Working Group) nearly 75% of the sunscreens on the market contain toxic chemicals that can cause hormone disruption, skin irritation and absorption of dangerous chemicals into the blood stream.
We’ve done our homework and are impressed with the simple and safe ingredients in Loving Naturals, Adorable Baby Sunscreen. We love it because it is 100% natural/organic, vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free and gluten free. It provides water resistant UVA/UVB protection and it is unscented for sensitive baby skin. When you apply this sunscreen it does not leave ANY white residue and it does not have a greasy or sticky feel (so sand won’t stick to your little one). When baby plays at the park, beach or pool just remember to apply it again after 1-2 hours.
Our other must have is a reusable swim diaper or two. They are something any parent can use to save money and reduce their waste output. There are so many choices but we love Cheeky Cloth Swim Diapers because they are one size, come in solids or super cute patterns and are premium quality! The material is soft and breathable so they work well even on babies with sensitive skin. They can be easily adjusted to fit 8-35 lbs so they last from the infant stage until your baby is a toddler and potty trained.
Have you ever had your baby take off their own diaper at the pool? Cheeky Cloth uses snaps instead of velcro to prevent babies from removing the swim diaper themselves. We also love the snaps because velcro closures tend to snag if baby is wearing a rash guard with the swim diaper. Cheeky Cloth’s swim diapers are not bulky and won’t ride up when baby crawls or walks. They can be worn alone or under a swimsuit. They are machine washable but you can also wash them in the sink (so they are easy to travel with and hang dry if needed). Public pool, beach, and health department approved.
Don’t forget to add our pouches to your pool bag. You can bring them frozen and let them thaw or put them in your cooler on ice. Our pouches can also be outside of the fridge or cooler at room temperature for up to 4 hours. Enjoy the sunny, warm days ahead!
