Summer is about relaxing by the poolside, enjoying BBQ, or going for a tropical vacation. But, as a parent, you’re probably worrying about your baby’s comfort and how to keep him or her cool. As the days get warmer, it’s essential to start prepping with the right gear for wearing, diapering, traveling to the beach, and eating. JCPenney has gathered all the essentials already in the baby store for you. So, relax and let us help you with a quick checklist for summertime must-haves.
Summer Wardrobe Essentials
Summer equals kids swimming, enjoying sprinklers, and water slides. They are naturally drawn to the water, and it’s best to be prepared with cute swimming trunks and tankinis. You can also select matching swimwear for the family. When your children aren’t splashing around, they can slip into soft, comfortable, and stylish dresses and bodysuits. These are ideal when visiting friends and family on a warm day.
Fashionable Accessories to Suit your Kid’s Personality
Though keeping them safe and protected in the sun is your number one priority, wouldn’t it be lovely to add a little flair into your little ones’ outfits? Dress your adorable children with charming fashion accessories, like hats, sunglasses, headbands, and mittens. Choose easy-to-mix-and-match accessories as they can seamlessly lend a little pizazz to any clothing.
Get your Little Ones Excited to Run Around
Durable, lightweight footwear is a must as kids are spending much of their summer outside. Whether they are stepping out for their evening walks, car rides, or simply hopping around, you can select a wide range of shoes for boys, girls, and infants. Your babies can be adorned with booties and crib shoes, and don’t forget colorful socks.
Have multiple care essentials for your kids to carry and only two hands? We all know the struggle. Make your life much easier this summer with a storage caddy or diaper bag. To ensure you have everything your child needs, keep a checklist handy. Don’t forget to include a changing pad, diapers, wipes, blankets, nursing cover, hooded towels, and wash cloths.
Keep Their Tummies Full
Carry plenty of healthy snacks and drinks to ensure your kids stay full and hydrated on picnics and beach trips. Stay well prepared to tackle every hunger pang with baby bottle, snack cups, and bibs. If you want to prepare your own baby food during your summertime outings, consider packing a portable baby food masher.
Toys for a Magical Summer
Encourage your little ones’ imagination, while developing early motor skills and introducing water play, with splash mats, bubble machines, soft toy sets, and beach toy sets. And when it’s naptime, read them a lovely story while they hug a new plush toy.
