Can you smell that hot deciduous summer sneaking behind the corner? You imagine sunbathing in the blazing sun, drinking mojitos and reading a book you can’t leave. The perfect relaxing afternoon by the sea with your sweetheart or your girlfriends.
But bringing your babies to the beach might not look exactly like the description above. Although you are sure to have loads of fun surrounded by constant laughter and giggles, there are quite a few complications you need to consider. And if you come unprepared… well, then prepare for disaster.
If you don’t want your dreamy day at the beach to be ruined, rather to cherish the very first beach moments of your babies, then you should plan all the baby beach accessories you will need in advance. Don’t know what baby beach accessories to bring? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!
1. Have You Got Your Baby Beach Accessories Packing List?
We are all very well familiar with the many benefits of checklists – they save us in the hardest of times. Getting ready for a magical day at the beach with your babies is no exception.
Since there are quite a lot of baby beach accessories involved we recommend you using a checklist notepad such as the one by MUJI. The simple design allows you to scan the list with ease and you can write as long of a list as you wish. The best thing is that you can use the MUJI Checklist Notepad for multiple purposes – something really handy when you have double-trouble at home.
Before you set off for your day at the beach with twins make sure you go over your beach checklist for baby essentials, and you are sure to have a great day.
2. Baby Beach Sunscreen Lotion
Sunscreen lotion is one of the most obvious beach must-haves, but you will be surprised by how often people forget to bring one, and that leads to an instant regret.
In order to protect your babies’ sensitive skin from the sun, we recommend you using the Babyganics SPF 50 Baby Sunscreen Lotion UVA UVB Protection that comes in a pack of two – perfect for your two angels. We love this sunscreen lotion because it’s formulated with organic ingredients and is made with the environment in mind. One customer said: “I always buy Babyganics sunscreen for my kids! It seems to be the safest option out of reviews I have read for their skin”.
3. Baby Beach Bonnet
To ensure that your babies are fully protected from the sun, it’s advised to invest in a baby beach bonnet.
We love the i Play. Brim Sun Protection Adjustable Hat, which comes in different colors and will suit your twins whatever the gender. It’s made from a quick-drying material for active play, and has an extra neck protection and a stay-put tie strap. That way you will be sure that none of your twins’ skin will get sunburnt.
4. Beach Pack and Play
If you are bringing your baby twins to your day at the beach, then it’s likely that they wouldn’t want to just lie on the beach and sunbathe like you do. Your babies will be overly-excited by their fun surroundings and will want to go everywhere.
To avoid the extra trouble of running after your twins all the time, it’s best if you bring a portable beach Pack and Play, where your babies can play safely in. The Regalo My Portable Play Yard is perfectly suitable for both indoors and outdoors. Designed with a simple fold and go mechanism, it’s super easy to carry and set-up. Plus, it’s water resistant!
5. Baby Beach Chair
Other essential baby beach accessories that will make your life easier is a baby beach chair. It will keep your babies safe and is perfect for messy eaters.
Our personal favorite is the hiccapop Omniboost Travel Booster Seat with Tray, which is ideal for a day at the beach, camping or a garden party. It features a gentle restraint system, ergonomically designed to keep even the most wiggly toddler in place and cozy. It’s also made for ease of use, because the buckles are easily released using only one hand. This is the perfect baby beach accessory.
Oh, and don’t forget to bring some matching bibs for your little messy eaters, such as the Drinking Buddies Twins Baby Bibs – they’ll save your life.
6. Baby Beach Water Bottle
We all know how important it is to stay hydrated. This is especially relevant when it comes to spending a lovely day at the beach with your precious twins. Although your babies most likely already have their own water bottles and they’re probably fine to use at the beach, you should make sure that the water bottle you get will keep the drinks cool. There is nothing worse than drinking warm water under the sun.
That’s why the Tommee Tippee Insulated Sportee Toddler Water Bottle with Handle is the ideal baby beach accessory. It is double-wall insulated, bite-resistant, and spill-proof. The ergonomic design is comfortable for tiny hands, and little ones can stay hydrated longer because of the sports bottle’s insulated core.
7. The Best Beach Towel for Babies
There is nothing more adorable than kids getting excited about their beach towels. I remember choosing one each year with the utmost excitement in my heart.
Your twins most likely already have their favorite kids show characters, so getting them a baby beach towel featuring one of those characters is a winner. But if you’re looking for something more unisex we recommend you the Luvable Friends Unisex Baby Cotton Animal Face Hooded Towel which is made with 100% woven terry cotton and is super adorable. Choose between a range of funky colors and enjoy a memorable day at the beach with your twins.
8. Baby Beach Bag
Have you thought about where you are going to store all these amazing baby beach accessories? Considering the amount of baby beach gear you need to bring it’s best to invest in a large baby beach bag with loads of compartments.
We love the FITFORT Mesh Beach Tote Bag with Detachable Beach Cooler, because it has absolutely everything you will ever need in a baby beach bag. It has the capacity of 12 bottles of drink and 4 big towels ,whose side pockets are designed to hold most of your sunscreen cream, phones, sunglasses, beach toys, and so on. Made from a PVC mesh which is anti-sticky and keeps items dry and odor-free, just shake it and the sand shall leave your sight.
Don’t forget to pack some comfy, easy-to-put-on clothes to change your babies into at the end of your beach trip. The Miracle Onesies by TwinStuff are ideal for that, and are also super adorable.
