8 Beach Essentials for Baby

Viewing 1 of 9

If you’re headed to the beach with baby, it’s not just about sunshine and sand -- it’s about safety. In fact, the littlest babies -- less than 6 months old -- shouldn’t really be in the sun at all because an infant’s delicate skin isn’t yet protected by melanin. Your best bet is to avoid the hottest midday hours, cover up and bring a few beach-day essentials with you.
