What’s In My Diaper Bag: Baby Must Haves For Summer

luvs-spSummer is right around the corner, how do you protect yourself and your baby from the summer heat? Now that I’m on my third child, I no longer spend money on frivolous baby goods and only carry around essentials I absolutely need.

Being a mother of three also means knowing where to spend and where to save. Today I partnered with Luvs, the official diaper of experienced parents, to bring you ways to save money on diapers and to protect you and your baby from the summer heat.summertime-baby

Here are some of my favorite summer essentials!

summertime-baby-essentials-diaper-bag1. Sun protection is key

I live in Southern California so sun protection is crucial during summer time. I make sure my baby always has a summer hat wherever we go. I prefer hats that are light and airy like the one in the photo.

I also make sure I always have sunglasses for me and sunblock for baby. I’m currently loving this Vant baby sunscreen that comes in a compact form. You can purchase here.

2. Hydrate yourself and the baby

I carry around a face mist during summer time because the weather can get really dry in Southern California. I use it on my face, my hands and body whenever I feel dry. I also use extra hydration for my son because he has mild eczema which worsens with dry weather.

3. One muslin blanket, multiple uses

I own many muslin blankets because they are so versatile. You can use them as a blanket, nursing cover, diaper changing mat, carseat cover, wash cloth, burp cloth and even for covering the window when the sun gets too strong in the car. Muslin blankets are light and airy, which makes them a perfect summertime essential!

4. Drink lots of water

I cannot emphasize this enough but drinking lots of water is key to a healthy mind and body. It has so many benefits not only on your body but your hair and skin. I always carry around a water bottle for myself and small sippy cup for my son so we can both stay hydrated wherever we go.

  1. Omg, that little hat is so cute Angela! I love the idea of a face mist and little sunglasses too. For a minute I totally thought those were yours, so stylish!!
    xo, Nicole

  2. Sometimes it takes a little practice! After your first one — a trial run — you get to know what to do and what to bring, and what to leave at home because you didn’t need it anyway! Great blog and great ideas!

  3. Do you still love the Baby Vant sunscreen? My daughter is under 2 and hates face application. I apply her face almost 5-6 days/week with a hat for over a year now and while she’s gotten use to the hat the sunscreen is still a fight. I’m hoping this type (Vant) of application would make it easier. I’ve tried the neutrogena deodorant like face stick but its not good because the product is so hard and doesn’t easily apply to the skin. Apprecuate any feedback !
