Summertime is quickly approaching which means the heat will be here before you know it. As someone who has had two summer babies, I know the importance certain products have in making sure you and your new baby have an enjoyable summer. There is no need to sit inside, when you should be out enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. It’s not only healthy for you mentally, but having your baby exposed to some vitamin D is always a good idea.
I have put together a list of my favorite summer products that I recommend for your little one.
BreathableBaby is a company that I have known and loved for about for 7 years now. They make bedding that is safe to use because it allows better and easier breathing for your baby. Safety is their top priority. It is the starting point for their product design, and they take extra steps (like consulting with doctors and rigorously testing our products) to make sure all their safer sleep solutions are safe enough for your family.
You may have seen their Breathable® Mesh Crib Liners when searching for safe alternatives to crib bumpers, but did you also know they make blankets? You may be thinking why on earth should you use a blanket during the summertime, but babies like to feel warm and secure. They enjoy being bundled and with BreathableBaby’s Deluxe Modal Knit Baby Blanket they can while still getting that airflow that is needed.
This blanket is SOFT! It is honestly our favorite blanket we own. Not only does it keep babies warm during the winter, but it’ll keep your baby cool during the summer. It’s basically a two-for-one in my opinion. It breathes well and is also very absorbant.

The Regalo Baby Play Yard is seriously a must-have this summer. If there is one thing you need to buy, make it this! I can’t express how convenient this play yard is, we use it almost every day when we are outside.
This Play Yard is truly portable. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and in less than a minute the Regalo Baby Play Yard can be opened for use or closed and put away in its carrying case.
It’s replaced our pack n’ play and I will always recommend this to any parent out there. The best part is it comes in either a 6 Panel or 8 panel size and both retail for under $100.
If you are camping, spending time at the beach, or just want a safe place for your little one (indoor or outdoor), the Regalo Baby Play Yard is it!

Real Shades Baby Sunglasses – Available in Polarized
It’s no surprise baby’s eyes are really sensitive, so why not protect them. Getting your little one used to sunglasses at a young age will save you the headache of trying to introduce it to them when they are older.
Real Shades is the perfect sunglasses for your little one’s eyes. Not only are they extremely comfortable on their head, they are extremely durable. Your little one can bend them, flex them, or even try and eat them and they won’t break. They are 100% UVA/UVB protective and available in polarized! My favorite part about them is the removable strap. It really helps to keep these shades on the little ones, especially when they are still trying to work on their head control.
