WELCOME TO SUMMER 2010
I think this is going to be a great summer and to make it even better I have a giveaway thanks to B Crazi Bows! You can win this adorable bow by writing a comment (and your email address) of your must have summer item, or great idea for traveling in the car for you or for baby! SBG will pick the winner at random on Sunday evening so have your entries in by 6pm Sunday, June 6th!
Here are some items that I have found helpful for last summer when SBG was a little over a year old!
We used the catalog One-Step-Ahead for her swimsuit. She wore the Sun Smarties UPF 50+ Zip Up Surf Suit . She wore the all summer long and she loved it, it was quick and easy to get her in and out even when it was wet from the pool.
Also from One-Step-Ahead, we bought Sun Smarties™ Adjustable Swim Diaper it is environmentally friendly, and there was no soggy mess that you might get with a disposable diaper.
Water socks by www.SunGrubbies.com, they are wonderful! We had two pairs for her and they were used at the beach and the pool. A very durable product, it protected her feet from the sun but also from outside elements like sharp shells or the hot concrete at the pool.
Her summer hat was an SPF hat from Babies R’ Us, love this product and so happy it still fits her for this year.
For vacation, we purchased the PeaPod Plus Infant Travel Bed from One-Step-Ahead. This tent was safe and secure for SBG. It packs up nicely and is very compact; a nice bonus is that is comes with its own pump. I do remember having to watch the video to close and “fold” up the tent; it did take a few times but worth it. I will be very interesting to see how she does in it this year.
This year we wanted to try something different for the diaper cover. I went to Babies R’ Us and found their diaper covers, I went with the next size up of XXL and it was the perfect fit! I do wish they had a linking in the cover but all in all a great product and it was only $3.99!
Can’t wait to read all of your great suggestions and don’t forget your sun tan lotion!!!
