1. Baby Powder- I saw this on Pinterest and a couple of you recommended it. I was SO shocked that it works. Now, Skeeter did get covered in sand so it took a little longer than I would’ve liked to clean her off, but it does work.
2. Baby wipes- The baby powder does need to be wiped off after it removes the sand. These were also handy for wiping hands for snack time.
3. Snackage- Everyone gets hungry at the beach. Toddlers are no exception- and they’re quite cranky when hungry. We kept graham crackers, Goldfish crackers, and squeezables on hand for the little ones.
4. Toddler beach chairs- My FIL found these adorable, toddler chairs for Tater & Skeeter and they were a huge hit! Skeeter loved sitting in hers- and she even stood up from it to take steps a few times!
5. Beach toys- This is a no-brainer. They loved knocking down sand castles as I built them.
6. Jogging stroller- I brought our jogging stroller along, because I wasn’t worried about it getting sandy like I would our other strollers. This was the perfect place for Skeeter to nap during the day. She was able to catch a good breeze, lay out, and stay completely shaded.
1. Rash guard swimsuit- I originally bought her cute little frilly swimsuits for Skeeter. But after our beach trial run, I was terrified her alabaster skin would burn, so I invested in a couple of these suits. They were worth every penny.
2. Coppertone Sunscreen- I apply sunscreen on myself and Skeeter no matter what we’re doing. Coppertone has worked best for us lately.
