Are we all excited to be able to finally spend some time outside?! It’s always really exciting when the weather warms up and you can take your babies on a nice walk or go to the park. Whether the day plans are to go to the park, beach, pool or just out on a walk, there are a few things that will be helpful for your little one! This list is for both new moms and moms who are looking for more summer necessities for outdoor activities. The summer heat and sun exposure are no joke, so hopefully these items help you have some summer fun!
Let’s break everything down into some categories:
This can be anything that you want to keep in the stroller or feel you’ll need on the go on a daily basis. Furthermore, a lot of accessories are small and can be tossed in a diaper bag if the stroller doesn’t go get used on a daily basis. Firstly, a stroller fan is essential. Never underestimate the power of those little things, they can be a saving grace in the hot summer months. Additionally, a lightweight blanket is a great way to protect a baby’s sensitive skin and provide some shade and sun protection. Moreover,shade can help keep a baby cool, as well. Having a breathable baby carrier or breathable fabrics in general are some of the most important baby essentials! Air ventilation is key.
Overall, sunscreen is an obvious first necessity. You can use chemical sunscreens or mineral, depending on your own preference. Don’t forget to put extra on the baby’s face, they tend to touch their faces a lot and it can get rubbed off a bit sometimes. Quickly following behind this item are a sun hat, baby sunglasses, cooler bags and extra diapers. Subsequently, the little one’s can get tired out from playing in the baby pool or kiddie pool. Sometimes a lightweight sleep sack is helpful to get them to take a nap in the shade after play time.
Finally, if there’s no specific agenda for the day and it’s very go with the flow, here’s a few items that might be helpful! A wonderfold wagon looks like it can be very helpful in taking a few kids on a walk or helping bring some items out of the house for a summer picnic. As the temperature rises, essential baby items needed on a daily basis change. For instance, car window shades become must haves. I know something my kids loved was a water table they could play with outside. It is an easy way to cool down in the hot weather.

I can tell we live in very different parts of the country… we go outside in the winter when it’s nice enough. Right now, I’m only outside if I’m in the pool. But, all your must-haves were ones we had when venturing outdoors when my boys were babies!
There are some great items here. It really does pay to be prepared when the summer rolls around.
Yes, lots of useful and fun ideas here! The tray to catch food as it falls from a high chair is a great idea. And the splash thing is great- kids love most anything to do with water.
Wow! This list of items is definitely a must-have for our baby this summer season. Every item looks essential, I love the stroller and the baby carrier.
Hhhhmmm…this is quite the list of essentials! If I were to go shopping for these, I would start with the miscellaneous ones.
It’s important to assess what you need and will use. Great suggestions, I loved my baby carrier so much.
Wow! This is a really great list of things that must have! I would start with the baby carrier
Wow! I am interested in your UV blanket. In fact, this is the first time I have heard a blanket with UV protection. Would love to get one as we are really in the outdoors a lot and could use this.
