Baby hacks for a day at the beach with the family

Ready for a lovely day at the beach? A calm day in the summer sun with no worries in the world sounds like absolute heaven. But when reality kicks in, it can suddenly spiral into crying babies, sand in the sandwiches and sunburn. To avoid this from happening, we’ve gathered a few baby hacks for a day at the beach.

8 baby hacks for a stress free beach day

1. Bring a sheet for a sand free area to play. Towels seem to have an amazing ability to attract sand. All of the sudden it’s sand EVERYWHERE. Bring an old bed sheet or picnic sheet and put bags in each corner. Ta-da!

2... and a SleepCarrier to be able to quickly move to the shade. The handles on the Najell SleepCarrier make it easy to move from the pram, to the perfect sunny spot and when needed into the shade without waking the baby.

3. Remove sand with cornstarch. You'll be amazed at how effective it is. Just sprinkle it on exposed arms and legs and poof, it’s gone.

4. Use your freezer the day before! Just put the next days cold snacks in the freezer. Food pouches and yoghurt become a refreshing treat, or blend fruit and juice and make your own popsicles.

5. Apply sunscreen before you head outside. It takes approximately 15 minutes for your skin to absorb the sunscreen and protect you.

6. Dress for success. A thin layer of cotton clothes that covers the baby’s skin is good when it’s about 20-25 degrees. During even hotter days, the baby can wear a short-sleeved body or some UV beachwear. Just don’t forget the sun hat!

7. Towels at the ready. A great way of getting the kids dried and covered after going for a dip is either using a hooded towel or a bathrobe, especially if its a windy day.

8. Bring a mesh bag for beach toys. Hey, we know that mesh is a great material. That’s why we use it for most of our products. But what we didn’t know was that the holes in a mesh bag will help unwanted sand stay at the beach. Rainy day? Read our tips for other fun summer activities!
