Spring on the way - a warm weather welcome!
More excitement about Springtime! Here are some of our members' favorite clothing and accessories that work great for the nice weather coming our way!
A new addition to the Polo short line this season, these shorts are not only durable, but also have an elastic back waistband for comfort, babies who are in between sizes and are easy on/easy off capabilities! Great for those warm spring and summer days coming up! At $40, these shorts are some of the more reasonable, given the durability and expansion capabilities (with the elastic bands).
New for spring from the Children's Place are some great dressy clothes. These linen pants are inexpensive and lightweight enough for summer nights or spring days... but they look great for holidays, BBQs or any other "going out" event.
With sunny weather comes lots of sunscreen (and if it doesn't, then take note that it should)! These are soft wipes from MD Moms that are saturated with a sweat/water-proof, SPF 30+ sunscreen. They are also enriched with Vitamins E and B5, marine silk, aloe and oat to moisturize (safe for baby’s skin). The packaging says that "each wipe contains enough sunscreen to cover baby from head to toe," which is definitely true -- these are soaked with sunscreen! For an older (larger) child you might need more than one wipe though. The packaging is convenient, but like other wipes, sometimes more than one comes out and then you can't put it back in... and at $1.73/wipe, that can get expensive. Overall though this is a great product and much easier than the mess of dealing with regular tube sunscreen. Good to keep an emergency package in the diaper bag just in case you find yourself at the park on a very nice day and want to take advantage by staying out for a while.
This outdoor blanket is great for a day in the park, a picnic or watching a little league or soccer game. The two-sided patterns make it easy to keep a "ground" side vs a "kids" side. It also has a great, fairly small carrying case and is water resistant so won't soak through if there's a wet spot in the grass. It's also machine washable, which makes cleaning it easy. This is a must have for the spring!
This is an inexpensive jacket that packs into its pocket so it's very small. A must-have for the April (and May) showers. Great to keep in the pocketbook for those "just in case it rains" moments. It's easy to clean, and the hood and elastic arm cuffs help keep kids relatively dry even if they're running and playing in the rain.
