Two hats with velcro ties
Elizabeth, a mom of one, says that when you’re packing up your straw bag, toss in not one, but two, hats made of sun-protective fabric with Velcro ties to help protect your little one’s head, face, and neck from the sun. She notes this will keep it from flying away and if does because baby picks at it, you’ll have a second one to replace it. “It’s so important to keep baby’s head covered, and the Velcro ties help keep it on even with the ocean breeze,” she says. Here are the sunscreens dermatologists use on themselves.

Your days of ordering piña colada poolside are (temporarily) over. Now that you have babes, you’ll need to not only take note of your own hydration but of your children’s water intake, too. To make sure she always has water on hand, Liz Taylor suggests Swell Water Bottles, instead of packing a bunch of plastic ones. “This water bottle keeps drinks ice-cold, even if it is sitting in the hot sun all day. I also love that these bottles don’t sweat, so we can keep our sandwiches and fruit near them, without anything getting soggy or ruined in the cooler.” Not to mention they’re eco-friendly, BPA-free, and reusable. Here are all the reasons why you should be drinking eight glasses of water a day.
