2018 Summer Survival Guide
The StrollerTraffic editors have scoured the web to find the best stuff for the hot season, from sunscreen and sand toys to handy travel gear and shady sun hats. Happy sunshine, happy saltwater, happy shopping!
Did you know most sunscreen harms coral reefs? Not this one. The SPF 50, 70% organic formula is fragrance, paraben, and preservative free...and water resistant. At coolasuncare.com.
A simple summer hack for an uncomfortable, too-hot stroller seat: Skip Hop’s Stroll & Go Cool Touch Stroller Liner fits most stroller strap designs and keeps kids cool and dry on even the hottest days. At skiphop.com.
Pool days and play days are great but … grimy. The organic ingredients in Swim & Sport Shampoo & Wash from Babo Botanicals safely remove chlorine buildup and salt from hair after all that time outdoors. At babobotanicals.com.
Bugs beware! The PARA’KITO refillable repellent clip attaches to your stroller or diaper bag, keeping mosquitoes away from you for two weeks. It’s DEET-free, made from essential oils, and provides all-day protection. At us.parakito.com.
You know what they say, the better the summer adventure, the more treasures unearthed. With magnetic closures, plenty of storage, and easy-to-clean fabrics, the Tula backpack is up to the challenge of safely storing toddler must-haves...whatever they might be that day. At tulababy.com.
Because there's nothing worse than rummaging through a jam-packed diaper bag in a restaurant bathroom with a wiggly baby pinned down to a changing station. Stash your diapering accoutrements in this grab-and-go pouch (changing pad included!) and leave the rest of the bag at the table. At nordstrom.com.
Packing isn’t a chore when one bag is designed to carry it all. The Weekender Diaper Bag has a built-in wipes pocket, changing pad, wet bag, and an insulated cooler pocket for bottles and baby food. Available at babyktan.com.
