Is it ok to take a 2 month old to the beach?

will they get sick? I would not let here go in the water just stay on the beach so the rest of the fam can play. Is it safe?

  • I brought my little guy when he was about that old. Slathered in lots of sunscream with a little hat and in a stroller with a canopy.Make sure he is hydrated and stays that way. I'd take the baby out and dip his little legs in to the water and his toes into the sand even if only for a minute or two.It is a tactile experiance.Everytime baby gets to do something new he forms brain conections.Go for it and have fun!

  • I took mine at about that age and it was great. We held him or kept him in his carseat under an umbrella. I tried to take him at about 10 months and it was a disaster. He wouldn't stay on a blanket or in a chair. He kept eating sand. I say take yours now and enjoy your day at the beach because you won't be able to enjoy it in a few months.

  • Why not just keep the baby under an umbrella. But if the baby starts to get over heated its best that you get them into some air conditioning so they dont get heat exhaustion
