Sunshine in February

If you're anything like me you are grateful for this February sunshine that we have had here on the Outer Banks. It has felt so amazing to feel the sun warm my skin after a few months of frigid temps! But these warm days are also the reason why I am reaching for the sunscreen and with tiny humans I'm pretty selective on which brand we slather them down with! Being a beach mom, one of the most frequently asked questions I get is about sun safety and with new sunscreens hitting the market every year, I am in constant pursuit of the best sunscreen, cup of coffee and beach access ;) These are my go-tos for 2018 and you won't find my beach bag without them! It's so easy to use the spray on quick sunscreen fixes but if we're spending hundreds on the best carseat and buying organic baby food... we need to be thinking about what we're covering our own skin with!

ThinkBaby is my #1! I haven't found it locally yet but I really do think it's worth the Amazon snag. It's free of all the usual garbage, so that means no Avobenzone, Oxybenzone, or UV Chemical absorbers and it's up to 80 minutes of water-resistant wear. Think Baby is made in the USA.

Burn Out Kids is what I've been using on our tiny Eloise since last Summer. I love that it's chemical free but they have gone the extra mile to make it safer for little ones with sensitive skin. ​

What products are you using to keep your kiddos safe in the sun and in the water? We're always looking for great suggestions for our beach bag!
