Without these things, I am not sure if lake weekends would be bare-able for our family of three! But lucky for us, Jack was born for the lake life - with the help of these items we are set up to have one fantastic summer full of lake and sun fun :)
Baby Essentials, Lake House Edition!
Alright, three lake house weekends into the summer and I think we have it down with Da Bubba.
Keeping Jack cool, calm, and comfortable is the KEY to a relaxing time for Mama & Daddy- Here are a few of the essential items to keep all three of the above a check, check, & check! Baby Hideaway Pool This pool is awesome because it is small enough to put on the dock and on the boat, yet big enough for someone (me) to get in it with him. Bubba loves it and it keeps him nice and cool on super hot days!
SwimWays Canopy Spring Float THIS. This is the NUMBER ONE best thing that we have for Bubba at the lake. We put him in here and swim around with him, and he is SO so happy! When we put the shade up it keeps him from getting too much sun and it is secure enough that I don't have to freak about him falling out!
Swim Sunshade Hat I feel like it's a right of passage that EVERY baby have their dorky white sun hat. Jack refuses to keep sunglasses on his face, so this is a lifesaver when it comes to keeping the sun out of his eyes. It also protects his head, neck, and face from getting too much sun! I love him in it :)
Stearns Hydroprene Infant Life Jacket This is essential for us. We go on lots of boat rides and I am a NERVOUS wreck about Bubba in the water. Unfortunately, Jack really hates having any movement being restricted. All life jackets restrict movement and we have actually gone through THREE before finding the right one that he could tolerate.
Little Tikes Snug'n Secure Swing This isn't a water item, but awesome for when he needs a break from sunbathing. My parents put one of these up in the front yard of their lake house and Jack could live in it.
