  • Plan on renting (if you don't own) a big umbrella so your baby can be out of the direct sun most of the time. They also have little pop-up tents with UV protection if that's more convenient -- I can't remember the name of the brand I was recently looking at but if you google "one-step pup up play tent" you'll see it. We got a little folding chair so our daughter could sit off the sand to eat snacks, etc. Remember babies (and all of us) can still get a sunburn on the beach in the shade because of the reflection off the sand, so reapply sunscreen often.

  • Oops I was totally wrong on telling you what to google. Here's a link to the kind of thing I'm talking about:

    Good luck!
