Taking A Baby To The Beach.

I'm planning on going this Monday, she's 4 months. Of course, I'm going to have her attached to my hip. I just need to put some sunscreen on her, shade her, & keep the sand out. Other than that, it's okay, right?

Of course! But it's fine, so we're good.

AFAIK babies should not have sunscreen applied before they are six months old so staying shaded at all times (whether under an umbrella, a shade tent, or full coverage UV-blocking clothing and a hat) would be important. But you should check with your pediatrician on that to make sure, as I may not be recalling that correctly from when my son was an infant.

Oh, I see. Okay, thanks for that. I'll look into it. I didn't know sunscreen could affect their skin. I guess so, because of the chemicals & what's in it.

They make little baby tents to keep them out of the sun and wind:) ive seen people use packnplay with a fitted sheet over top too! also, I use baby powder to rid my body of sand when we beach camp. Strip down naked and douse myself with powder. It takes the sand right off!

Haha, I'll definitely look into the baby tent. That sounds like a good idea.
