As the hot weather is here I thought I would share with you the summer essentials that I need to get me through summer with children.
I wouldn’t be without my snoozeshade. Not only does it keep the Sun of my little ones, I’ve just it through a spot of rain, to get the kids to nap and also I’ve used it on holiday to shield a bit of noise at the children’s club at night.
2. Summer Infant Piddlepad
This is brilliant for long journeys for either children that may not be able to hold their pee in (when there is nowhere to stop) or when your baby’s nappy just can’t take anymore.
3. Seat Back Protectors
In the summer we have lots of days out and most of those we need the car to get us there and on long journeys children can get bored and kick the seat. These also hold items that can stop the kids from getting bored.
We have the snoozeshade (as above) so mostly use that but for most days we use our small pushchair (which is easier to take around) the Quinny Yezz but it’s the one pushchair the snoozeshade doesn’t fit so this RayShade is perfect to keep the sun off Jack.
BabyMule Changing Bag
This is my very own Mary Poppins bag, it is amazing! When on days out I like to be prepared for everything and this never fails. Because you don’t just need a bag for babies, all my children (even the teens) have things they need while out. Jack needs nappies, wiped, change of clothes, snacks, bottles and so on. Harry needs suncream, snacks, change of clothes, things to keep him occupied, the teens have phones, snacks, suncream, money etc and then I need things that I’d usually put in a handbag (but never take out anymore)
SummerInfant Pop and Sit
This chair lives in our car because you never know when you might need it. It folds up really small so is never an inconvenience and then you just pop in up when needed. We’ve used it at restaurants that don’t have high chairs, on picnics, at families houses etc.
So these are the items I use every summer (and most through to winter too). All these items I own and use on a regular basis.
