Must-Haves for Summer with a Toddler
By alyciapalmer on July 19, 2014
one: I am in love with this little dress from Osh Kosh. It is so light and airy - prefect for those hot summer days! And can we talk about the color? I'm loving these chambray looks right now!
two: And these little short overalls from Osh Kosh are to die for!! Little girls in overalls; cutest. thing. ever!
three/four: You can never have too much sunscreen. With the weather being so hot like it is, I am all about protecting little ones' skin from the scorching sun! and BUG SPRAY! It is unbelievable how many mosquitos we have right now. Its horrific! Poor little palmer has bites all over her, even after using the bug spray. This is certainly a must-have - gotta protect their skin!
five: I am loving my cloth diaper shells again for the water. They are light and waterproof making them ideal for that day at the pool or lounging in the yard. And, can I point out how cute these prints are?
six: These pools are perfect for toddlers! They are shallow, allowing them to sit and play. They have a canopy for shade from the hot sun. And, you can attach your hose to them and it has a little spray feature!
seven: Rashguards! I love these, especially for a whole day at the pool/spray park/backyard. Along with the sunscreen, these are a must for protecting little arms from a sunburn!
eight: These little flip flops are the greatest. With a price tag of $2, you can't go wrong. They are perfect for running around the splash park or a walk to the park. Easy to keep on with the elastic back. Palmer actually reaches for these most often these days!
nine: If we are going to be outside for a long period of time, I always make sure to have a hat on Palmer. This one is our most used, but if we are going to be out all day (like in Mexico for example) I try to use one with a chin strap. Palmer likes to pull them off once in awhile.
ten: We love our water table. Palmer will splash and play for ages in it. She is a water baby, for sure!
eleven: And most importantly, when we are going to be in the hot sun all day, I make sure Palmer downs a lot of water! These are our most reached for cups! We also like the ones with the handle for little hands to hold!
And there you have it! Our summer must-haves for toddlers! What is on your list?
