Summer is here!!!! (At least in my house because my boys finished preschool last week and we have welcomed the season of summer with a big embrace, lots of time outdoors, and are loving some unplanned free time together!) Both of us love heading to the beach with our families over the summer and today we are sharing below our 5 Beach Favorites with you all.
1. Sunuva Swimwear
Our first beach favorite, Sunuva was created by two moms who were frustrated at the lack of stylish UV protective swimwear available. To tackle the issue, they created super fun & stylish swim and beachwear for kids that is also protective against the sun. Swimwear ranges in sizes 6 months-14 years featuring UPF+50 sun protection. For the boys’ line, there are fun prints including sharks, dragons, scuba divers, and more that allows you to pick a print that your child will love. My ocean-loving boys are happy to finally be outside after a long winter in their shark and sea swimsuits. Courtney’s girls have already hit the shore in their swimsuits and rash guards. For both boys and girls, Sunuva also features some great wardrobe pieces for just a hot summer day, including sundresses, linen shorts, and more! There is also a “sibling” area to shop on their website making it easy to coordinate siblings or twins. For our readers, Sunuva is offering 10% off purchases with coupon code: “CHIRP10”!
We have shared our love for Babyganics in the past, but today we are sharing about one of their products that is perfect for the hot sun at the beach. Every mom group or playdate that I have been a part of always has a discussion revolving around this question, ‘Which kind do you use and recommend?’ Our go-to sunscreen this summer is the Babyganics mineral-based sunscreen spray and sunscreen lotion. You may choose 30+SPF or 50+SPF, but all their sunscreens offer UVA + UVB protection, water resistant, and non-allergenic. You can purchase it on the Babyganics website or click here to buy on Amazon! Babyganics is offering two great products in the Beach Favorites giveaway: Sunscreen 50+SPF and 12 single-use tubes of Sunscreen 50+SPF (perfect for traveling!).
4. Melissa and Doug Beach Toy
We are both HUGE Melissa & Doug fans and their outdoor toys are not to disappoint. We love how they promote independent play, built to last for many uses, and are fun for a wide range of ages. Some of our favorite sand toys for the beach include:
- Sunny Patch Seaside Sidekicks Sand Baking Set
- Sunny Patch Seaside Sidekicks Nesting Pails
- Sunny Patch Speck Seahorse Sifter
- Sunny Patch Bibi Bee Watering Can
- Sunny Patch Clicker Crab Pail and Shovel
5. iPlay Swim Diapers
I posted about the iPlay swim diaper last year on the blog and I love them so much that I have to share it again this year! I am not a reusable kind of girl for regular diapers. (I wish I was, but with three little kids at home, I just can’t find time to get it done.) But I absolutely love the iPlay reusable swim diaper for little ones. The diapers and snug and comfortable for wiggling toddlers & with three protective layers, it helps keeps leaks and accidents out of the water. Abby is wearing the iPlay reusable swim diaper (with matching rash guard) above and it is a perfect little fun swimsuit for her and no bulky disposable swim diaper underneath. You can shop the wide selection of iPlay swimwear here on the iPlay website or find on Amazon! All iPlay swimwear and sun wear feature UPF 50+ protection to help keep your kids safe from the sun.
