Temperatures are rising and Summer is here! Summertime with baby is a time for endless exploring, beach days, little toes in the freshly mowed grass, and lots of outdoor fun. We have hand-picked some of our top summer essentials for baby so you can get outside and make the most of the season—just don’t forget your sunscreen!
- Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat from Fisher-Price allows you to take baby outside and play. The fabric seat hugs baby’s lower body while the high seat back provides essential upper back support. Detachable toys and a teether are also included for on-the-go fun.
- Nothing says summertime like a personal splash pool. The Frog Baby Shade Pool from International Playthings is a summertime must-have for baby. This pool comes with a shade to shield baby from the sun and a padded base to provide a soft seat for baby. This toy also doubles as a ball pit for indoor play.
- Summertime is meant for long lazy strolls with baby in tow and it’s a bonus when your stroller is a work of art. The Bugaboo Bee3 Van Gogh Special Edition is a gorgeous stroller with Van Gogh’s “Almond Blossom” printed across the canopy. The Bee3 is a compact stroller that is great for city life or wherever your summer travels take you. A generous sunshade and full recline allow baby to rest in a cool, shady retreat while on the move.
- For a cooler carrying option, the Ergobaby Performance Baby Carrier steps it up. This carrier has special moisture wicking mesh lining that keeps baby and parent cool. Padded straps and waist belt help evenly distribute baby’s weight, and its lightweight and compact design make it ideal for an active lifestyle.
- Summertime means bare feet, wet towels, and daily walks to the neighborhood pool. The Little Tikes Deluxe Ride and Relax Wagon with Umbrella from MGA Entertainment is perfect for loading up sunscreen, snacks, water bottles, towels, pool toys, and, of course, baby. The seats of the wagon have safety belts and an umbrella shades riders on their trip.
Toddlers love to imitate adults, and they can pretend to mow the lawn along with the big people with the Laugh and Learn Smart Stages Mower from Fisher-Price. The toy features more than 30 learning songs and melodies that grow with your child, while also offering stability as baby learns to walk in their younger years.
