What you need to know about bringing a baby to the beach

Alright, I’m spilling all of my secrets about bringing a baby to the beach!

Must-Have Baby Beach Clothes
Pro Tip: Choose a color that will stand out against the colors in the water. If your baby goes underwater or goes missing, clothing that is blue, green, or tan will not be as easy to find as colors like yellow, red, or orange.

If you have introduced water to your baby (after 6 months, in small amounts), make sure to bring a water cup. Though, focus more on hydrating your baby with their milk or formula.
