Beach days before having a baby meant complete relaxation. Entire beach vacations were spent catching up on some reading while kicked back in a beach chair without a worry in the world and maybe even a drink in your hand to top it off. With a new little one in tow, planning a vacation in general is usually a much different story. It may not be quite as carefree as prior vacations, but it doesn't have to be any less fun! Here are some tips on how to have an awesome beach day with your baby!
To nap, or not to nap?
If your baby usually naps during the time you'll be at the beach and you'd rather skip the "I missed my usual naptime" meltdown, make sure you're prepared! Come equipped with a pop-up tent and a "lovey" of some sort. Whether your little one prefers a blanket or their favorite stuffed animal, keeping the naptime routine as normal as possible will help them catch some z's which makes everyone's day a little easier. Just make sure whatever you bring can be washed once you get back to your vacation rental.
