Summer is in full swing as are backyard bbq's, pool days, family vacations, beach trips, and more. We've rounded up a list of some of our favorite items for babies and toddlers for summer. We own and love almost everything on this list. Let us know of any of your go-to summer items that we left out!
This brand was specifically recommended by our pediatrician as being her go-to for kiddos. Both are 50 SPF and have Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide for maximum skin protection. It is made without Oxybenzone and Octinoxate to protect reef ecosystems.
Come in lots of cute colors and prints and the handle is made of poppers. Dishwasher safe!
These save money and are more environmentally friendly than disposable swim diapers! We have 3 or 4 we rotate between.
These make spreading sunscreen on resistant babes and toddlers a little easier. Independent toddlers can even do it themselves!
Available in baby and toddler sizes in a variety of colors and styles. Sun protection but make it cute!
We have the XL and love it for family trips but these bags are also great for a trip to the pool or beach. Customize it by picking your color and monogramming. Comes in a variety of sizes.
The brand is French so you know these are cool. They make sunglasses for babies, toddlers, kids, and adults.
I love that this one has a retractable seat that they can use when they are younger (or if they get tired).
Just got these for our upcoming family trip to Mexico. Since they are silicone they are less likely to crack and they are bendable and easy to pack in a suitcase.
This one is big enough to accommodate multiple kids and adults as well and looks cute!
Our friends brought these on a recent trip and my kids loved them.
6) Balance bike
This was my daughter's 4th birthday present! We love this for afternoons and evenings spent outside and family walks.
We've owned this exact one (an older version) for years and it is still going strong and a beloved toy. I've given this to multiple friends' kids for birthday presents.
Technically a bath toy but these would be fun in a water table or pool as well.
I love that it has sleeves so I don't have to apply quite as much sunscreen and the bow detail at the back is adorable. We have this exact suit!
Just learned about this brand and ordered a couple pairs of pajamas for my kiddos for the summer. I love the unique prints and soft feel of the fabric and of course supporting a small business.
He wears these on repeat. They are so cute and show off his chunky legs. He wears them with a long sleeve swim shirt. Size up, they run extremely small. He's 2 and the 3/4 is already getting tight.
4) Summer dress
Love this Portuguese brand. All their designs are so cute. You can shop them on Maisonette and select boutiques in the US.
We've probably owned about 7 pairs of these at this point between my two kids. Water proof, easy to clean, comfortable. My kids wear these daily in the warmer months.
Great all year long but the Tencel Lyocell fabric is incredible for the warmer months. With its' silky feel and sweat-wicking properties, it keeps babies and toddlers cool and comfortable. Available as a pajama set in 12-18m through 4/5T and newborn-18-24m as footy pajamas.
This print is so cute! I ordered these for Julien.
8) Salamander shorts
Pair with shorts all summer long and then layer under cardigans and sweaters when the temperature drops. Made with 95% organic cotton and 5% elastane for a bit of stretch, it will be one of the softest tees you've ever felt.
Love these sandals and pretty much everything this brand makes.
