Summer is in full swing and the heat is on. This means more days of pool time with family and friends.
We always apply sunscreen (at least 50 SPF for the kids) about 20 – 30 minutes prior to heading out for a swim day. It’s one less thing we have to worry about once we get where we are going. Depending on the sunscreen, we try to re – apply after being in the water for 90 minutes. Protecting your skin from the sun is important year-round, but especially so when you are in the pool for hours.
Swimsuit (& swim diapers)
Of course, you need a cute swimsuit to hit the pool! Spring, usually brings new swimsuits for each kid. Also, if you have a baby who is still in diapers, don’t forget swim diapers. Use reusable swim diaper. It’s so cute, no need for a cover!
Obviously, a no-brainer! We prefer larger beach towels. They offer plenty of snuggly room to wrap up in after swimming or to layout on to soak up some sun. They are large enough that you can use it as a nursing cover or as a canopy over the baby’s pack and play to offer some shade.
Swimming, especially in the summer heat, can create an appetite. Kids always seem SO hungry while swimming so try to have some easy to eat snacks on hand (chips, goldfish, frozen go-gurt/applesauce pouches, etc.). Of course, it is always important to hydrate so bring plenty of water with you.
If your kids are younger, use inflatable armbands. Once they are older, move on to a Puddle Jumper as they learn to swim. Remember to ALWAYS watch your children while swimming, no matter their level of swimming and regardless if they are using flotation devices! These are not a substitute for watchful eyes!
Change of Clothes
Finally, always bring a change of clothes, diaper and wipes. Kids might get tired of swimming and want to relax with a book or take a nap. So always bring extra clothes (and of course wipes & diapers for the baby).
