Going to the beach with kids, or going anywhere for that matter, you really need to be ‘mom proofed’. Meaning, be prepared for everything with everything, wear a one piece or a suit that cannot be pulled down (trust me), and carry a bag that can fit it all. And throw in a couple of chic clothing items so you can feel like a human… just for your own sanity.
I LOVE this suit. By now you should know that one pieces are IN! Yay, just in time for my generation to be in and out of having kids and ‘mom bod’. There are some cute ones out there and actually so practical, especially if you are chasing a toddler all day. This one I found is a perfect price and very on trend. I went up a size because I am long in the torso and needed that extra fabric, but you don’t want too much gap because the back is open, which can be very flattering. I suggest trying a one piece and one that dips in the middle a little like this one!
We hit the beach with this JJ Cole blanket which is perfect because you can basically just wipe the sand off and it won’t stay on, or get on you. I took this and laid it out all day, and it was fine even when Jackson walked all over it sandy and wet. All I had to do was wipe it quickly. I carried all our food, diapers, wipes, changes of clothes, dogs, cats, etc… you get the point, because it has so many compartments. A nylon baby bag for the pool or beach is a must because it’s going to get wet and you don’t want to have to worry about it. Most moms are familiar with JJ Cole or have seen it at baby stores, you can get it at Babies R Us or on Amazon!
