Happy Hump Day you guys,

one of our favorite Summer activity is going to the swimming pool. Emilia loves the water and I enjoy it watching her splash around and play with her little friends and experience the water. Of couse everywhere we go I am pakcing a lot of stuff that needs to go with us and there is no exception here.
For beach bags I went back and forth but ultimately decided to get the O Bag Beach. I love O Bag and their concept of the possibility to put a personal touch on evey bag you get.
I got the O Bag Beach in white and selected the navy blue rope handles. It looks very nautical. Perfect for a beach themed bag.
What to pack into your beach bag
UV protecting hat // UV protection clothing is definitely necessary when you plan on spending the day outside by the pool. The sun is so much stronger near the water.
swaddles // I use these to cover her legs when she is sitting in the stroller. They are thin but still have the effects of a blanket.
towel // The hooded towels we got are perfect for sitting around after swimming. The towel doesn´t come off cause it is like a poncho plus it doubles as a blanket to warm up.
shovel // Emilia´s latest obsession. She is taking a shovel everywhere these days.
sun cream // SPF 50 is super important for every baby/toddler especially on pale childrens skin. We have used this sun lotion for the second summer now and we are very satisfied. Got the face lotion as well.
stacking cups // A huge hit whether it is the bath tub or the pool.
fishing net // Such a cute little game. The net comes with 4 little fish to catch with the net,
swim diapers // Definitely a must-have if you are swimming at a public pool. No one likes poop swimming around in the water.
Havaianas // Is there anything cuter than flip flops on a baby??!! This is our favorite brand. The whole family owns Havaianas so Emilia needed a pair too.
swim shoes // These have been pretty helpful cause the indoor pools are really slippery and the tiles by the outdoor pools are super hot in the heat. They are available in tons of colors and Emilia seems to like them a lot.
snack cup // Of course snacks should not be forgotten cause swimming makes hungry. This is great for your little one to pick one by one and not toss everything around.
pacifier // For sleeping in the car after all the splashing which is definitely everytime the case.
As you can see we have lots of stuff with us but the beach bag fits all of it. It is wipeable and washable in the sink which is amazing. Holds up great and the handles are thick and resistant.
