Summer Essentials: What you need when you hit the beach


It’s that time of year when we pack up our family and head for the coast. We live in the geographic center of our state, so it’s almost equal distance to the mountains or the beach. We enjoy going to both, but if you aren’t prepared, a beach trip can go badly fast. 

The following products are some things that made traveling to the beach so much easier with two little girls under six.

1. Steven Joseph rolling suitcase

We have one of these suitcases for each girl. They have tons of room and they’re so cute. Plus, both my kids can pull their own suitcase.

2. 31 Timeless Beauty Bag

Both girls have their own Timeless Beauty Bag to keep their bath stuff organized. I want one of these myself.

3.Stearns Puddle Jumpers 


Puddle Jumpers are awesome! Both of our girls have one of these, and even though our oldest can swim, I feel more comfortable with her wearing Puddle Jumpers.

4. A fine mist fan

These spray bottle/fans are a must on the super hot NC beaches. They are easy to find and readily available.

5. A sun shelter or umbrella

This pop up sun shelter folds up and can be carried in a shoulder bag. This was a necessity for our fair skinned blue eyed girls. It’s plenty big enough for all four of us to sit in.

6. Swim Diapers

I can’t make this list without including Swim Diapers! 

7. Baby powder

Baby powder is great for removing sand from your skin. Tuck a bottle in your beach bag.

8. Sun screen


And of course, bring a baby friendly sunscreen. We love Aveeno.

Happy travels! What do you take to the beach?
