Essentials for A Fun Beach Day With Your Baby

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Recently, we dropped by the beach to give our little one the experience of walking in the sand and feel the ocean breeze. Being new parents we hardly were prepared but these are what you should bring to enjoy a fun day at the beach with your baby. As fun as beach day sounds, it cannot be denied, me and my husband did struggle a bit because the beach toilet we went to was not baby friendly. We also got caught up in a windy thunder storm there as well which was pretty scary. But enough of that, let's head to the essential list :)

1. Reusable Swimming Diaper

Yes, this is a must especially when you want your baby to have the experience in the ocean water. Putting on a normal everyday diaper will make your baby feel less comfortable as it absorbs water easily and makes the diaper become heavy. Reusable swimming diapers help contain the water absorbed in and if your baby suddenly poops, no worries as this diaper can be washed and reused again. 

2. Sunscreen

Baby's skin are sensitive so applying sunscreen on them is crucial! Therefore, make sure you choose the sunscreen suitable for baby's skin and slather in on your baby skin entirely. 

3. Beach Hat

Beaches are known to be scrounging hot especially in the Malaysia climate.  Avoid going to the beach during the afternoon when the sun is high in the sky. You don't want your lil one getting a fever from the hot sun hence go to the beach from 8am-10am or 5pm-7pm when the sun is at its perfect position (not too hot and not too gloomy). But still make sure your baby wear a beach hat to lessen the heat blow.

4. Baby Swimwear

Instead of dressing up your baby in a normal t-shirt and shorts, go for the baby swimwear for a proper beach look. It is more comfortable and easy to dry after being soaked in the ocean water.

5. Beach Sand Toys

Okay, your lil one will definitely need some entertainment to enjoy his beach time with you. So bring along some sand toys from a pail, shovel and tools to build a sand castle. Let your baby learn how to scoop up the sand, dig a hole or play with the sand. However, make sure that you monitor your lil one so that he/she does not get sand in the eyes. Never ever sneak in the time to read a book or switch your eyes to something else as your baby still needs your undivided attention. 

6. Tote Bag

This is something needed for the parents to carry their belongings in at the beach. Leave your designer handbags at home and use a tote bag instead. 

7. Towel

Bring a towel to dry off your baby after enjoying the ocean water. Rinse him with clean water at the beach toilet so that his/her skin feels more refreshed. Remember, baby's skin is sensitive. 

8. Diaper + Clean clothes

Change that swimming diaper with a normal clean one and comfortable clothing. Once your baby had their share of fun at the beach of tired from playing in the sand, a new change of clothes and clean diaper will make your baby feel comfortable to snooze off in the car later. Oh, don't forget that bottle of milk to fill their empty tummy.
