How to Have a Fun Beach Day with Baby

If you’re planning to take your baby to the beach, here are a few tips for making it the best experience possible! 

Some baby beach day recommendations:

If a baby is six months or younger, keep them in the shade completely.  Most doctors don’t recommend sunscreen for babies this young, yet their skin is very sensitive and would burn very easily.  If you do decide to take a baby this young to the beach, do so with extreme caution.  Better yet, if possible, wait until they’re older.  Some experts say you should wait until your baby is at least one year old before taking them to the beach.  Again, if you do take them, keep them shaded and cool, and preferably for short periods of time during cooler parts of the day.

For older babies and toddlers, it’s best to keep them out of the sun between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. (the hottest time of the day).  Again, keep them shaded, especially during the sunniest times.  Keep them loaded up with sunscreen!  Lather them up before leaving for the beach.  Do it again when you get there, and then, reapply every two hours.  Use a baby safe sunscreen, preferably a stick version for the face, and lotion for the body.

Make sure your little one wears a hat and sunglasses at all times.  And, keep them hydrated!  Take lots of water and other healthy fluids with you and have them drink throughout the day. 

Also, bring healthy snacks, depending on their age, and what they are able to eat yet.  If they’re eating solid foods, some options include cut-up fruit, such as watermelon, bananas, strawberries, mango, peaches, and pears, as well as snacks like applesauce, dry cereal, and any other favorites.

family beach day

Bring an umbrella for shade.  Use blankets, towels, or mats, and create a safe, shady spot for your baby to relax and play, and maybe, nap. 

Bring swim diapers (and other diapers), wipes, a change of clothes, bottles or cups, and formula or expressed breast milk (if applicable).  Bring bags for trash, dirty diapers, wet clothes, etc.  It’s also a good idea to bring a first aid kit.  You might also want to bring a spray bottle with cold water in it to spray on baby if they get too hot.

Bring toys, depending on your baby’s age.  This can include sand toys, water toys, a ball, or other toys baby might play with on the mat or blanket.  Some people recommend bringing a small inflatable baby pool to let baby play in.

You might also want to bring a lightweight baby blanket in case it gets cool or breezy, or for when your baby takes a nap.  Make sure you have a great bag for packing baby’s beach goods (shop bags here).

Beach days with babies and toddlers are lots of fun!  These are some of the ways to prepare and make them even more enjoyable!

In honor of parents who like to get up and go with little ones in tow, Kabana Kids created its signature combination of coordinating diaper bags and play mats.  These products are meant to make family fun time together a little more convenient, with some cute and beachy portable products. 

pink bag and mermaid mat

Kabana Kids’ coordinating Beachy Diaper Bags and Beachy Play Mats were created to allow parents to easily get out and go anywhere with their babies and young children.  The mats fold up easily and fit into the bags with lots of room left for other items.  So they’re great for going to the beach, the park, the pool, on daily outings, overnight trips, vacations, and everywhere else you go with your little ones.

The bags, which function as both over-the-shoulder totes and as backpacks, are ideal as your go-to bag.  The mats serve so many functions (read here) and come in really handy when you need something for your child to sit, lie, or play on, while you’re out-and-about.  Plus they’re really cute and beachy!

Here’s some more information

Beachy Diaper Bags – The bags were created to be very convenient and versatile – you can carry them as an over-the-shoulder tote or wear them as a backpack.  You can fit as much or as little as you want in them, and they can accommodate you.  They will spread out so you can stuff them with lots of things, and they also hang nicely, and don’t take up much space, when not very full.

Beachy Play Mats – The mats were created to be easy to take with you wherever you go.  They make amazing play mats for babies, toddlers, and older kids, as well as beach mats, picnic blankets, and mats to relax on at the park, pool, in the yard or house.  They fold up easily and fit into the bags for portability.  They mats are soft cotton on top, water resistant nylon underneath, and with light padding inside.  They feature, fun, cute, whimsical prints. 

Here’s how you use Beachy Diaper Bags and Play Mats together: get bag and open it, fold mat (easily with the sewn in panels), put it in the bag, put anything else you want to bring in the bag, carry bag (as a tote or over the shoulder) or wear it as a backpack, go!  Wherever you are, take the mat out of the bag, place it on the floor, ground, sand, grass, etc., and your little one/s can sit or lie down, play, read, rest, etc.  When you’re ready to go, fold the mat and put it back in the bag.  Pretty simple!

Where to use our bags and mats: beach, park, pool, traveling, overnight, day trip, road trip, airplane, airport, waiting room, appointments, friends’ homes, your home, inside, outside, sporting event, picnic, anywhere!
