**I received a pack for participating in this promotion with Babies ‘R Us. All opinions are my own.**
My kids have 7 days of school left and though Houston is trying to get them to swim now with the floods that came in this weekend, I am more excited about planned vacations that have us all in a real pool coming soon! Summertime and kids go hand and hand and now is the time to prepare for your babies summer! There are so many items we all need with little ones around the pool. Swim diapers, floaties, dry diapers and wiped for after the swim and gentle laundry detergent to wash that oh too cute swimsuit in! Lucky for us, Babies ‘R Us has some amazing deals on all of the things we need that can help us and baby get through Summer!
Prepping for summer is all about planning when you have babies and young kids. Since we are headed out in a few weeks, I am already making lists! Below are some of the tips I have for planning ahead so that any trip to water you take with your baby is easier!
– Have a water friendly bag – packing stuff is great, but when you use a fabric bag or a bag not meant for water, you run the risk of everything in it getting wet before you use it. I speak from experience! Nothing like wanting to change a wet baby and finding that everything from your diapers to towels are wet with water!
– Always have extra – We have all been there. We are in the bathroom, our baby is wet and we reach in the bag to realize that we used the last diaper we had right before we went into the water. We are out. We calculated perfectly, and then baby sabotaged us. I have learned and I over pack the essentials.
– Think outside the box – Sometimes we pack what we need and forget the things we want. I used to pack everything and then forget something that would have kept my baby occupied. Like chalk to draw with or a bucket for sand. So when packing, think of things that are not necessities, but that might be wanted for
– Stock up early! I used to stock up on items I needed as soon as a possible plan to travel was upon me. Look for sales, like the one coming to Babies ‘R Us June 1 – June 30, 2015!
