Calling all very-soon-to-be-moms! If you’re due to have a baby this summer then you’ll need some special baby gear and goods to make sure your little one is properly protected, safe and pampered during the warmer months. Overheating and sunburn are serious safety issues for summer newborns. This is the season most of us savor. A new baby shouldn’t keep you from having a little fun this summer! Here, our picks for the best beat-the-heat and summer-ready items for moms of summer babies. Don’t forget to check out our ultimate list of what to put on your baby registry.
Summer Baby Must-Haves #1: The Baby Monitor
While baby is napping is the perfect time to get outside in the backyard or front porch and enjoy some of that fresh summer air. Just make sure you have a good baby monitor by your side. The Infant Optics DX-R Video Baby Monitor with Interchangeable Optical Lens takes baby watching to new high-tech heights. You can customize viewing angle and zoom, all remotely. Plus the sound-activated LED full color display and long-life battery guarantees you feel safe at all times when baby is snoozing in the other room.
Summer Baby Must-Haves #2: A Baby Sun Blanket
Pediatricians don’t recommended applying sunscreen to babies under 6 months old. So what’s a summer time mom to do? Wrap your little one up in the Green Sprouts Breathable Sun Blanket, which doubles as a car seat canopy. This super-soft protective blankie is OEKO-TEX® certified for your baby’s health and safety.
Summer Baby Must-Haves #3: Sleeveless Onesies
When the temperature rises, your baby is going to want nothing to do with some frilly outfit with complicated layers. Buy sleeveless onesies in bulk for summer time. Carter’s Sleeveless Onesies are classics. They’re durable, unisex, comfy and easy on the wallet. Plus they look super-cute on newborns!
Summer Baby Must-Haves #4: Baby Sunglasses
Eye protection from the sun is no joke for any age (the delicate eye region is a common spot for skin cancer to develop). Keep baby’s eyes protected and reduce the glare of the sun with a pair of UV-protective shades made for newborns. We love Liddlme Sunglasses, which are made from durable silicone, feature UV400 polarized lenses and an adjustable strap. Plus they’ll make baby look super-cool!
Summer Baby Must Haves #5: Baby Swim Clothes
It might some time before your baby actually does the breaststroke, but chances are you’ll still want to bring your little one to the beach or pool this summer. A swim diaper and sun hat is a must for any child during the summer. Plus you’ll also need a rash guard. We love anything and everything from Green Sprouts, including their awesome swim diapers, rash guards and sun-protective hats. Available in many adorable styles.
Summer Baby Must Haves #6: Outdoor Blanket
From picnics in the park to outdoor music festivals, chances are you’ll be spending loads of time sitting on the ground this summer. You’ll want something safe, water-resistant and durable to place baby on top of. Try the ultra-portable JJ Cole Outdoor Blanket.
