Summer is here and the best way to enjoy the heat and sun is...safely!!

Here are some helpful tips for enjoying Summer!

1) Babies should drink 50% more than usual during the summer. Keep baby hydrated. Our Bottle to Cup Kit offers some exceptional options for cup drinking that ranges from traditional straw to bite activated straws.

2) Get UPF blocking clothing and swimsuits. Some of our favorite brands for UPF clothing:

  • Coolibar
  • UV Skinz
  • Green Sprouts

3) Find local water playgrounds or sprinklers nearby. If you live in a major city, search for locations.

4) Take leisurely strolls with your baby for fresh air. It's good for you and for baby!

5) Don't forget sun protection! A sun hat is a must. Check out the Green Sprouts UPF 50+ sun hat in our Summer Fun Kit.

UpBring's Summer Fun kid contains 2 different brands of Sunscreen, a Sun Hat, and a Wet Bag. All sunscreens are not created equally.

Sunscreen - Each brand has a unique combination of sun blocking protectant. We’ve provided two pediatric dermatologist-tested options: Blue Lizard (active ingredients: zinc oxide 10%, titanium dioxide 8%) and Think Baby (active ingredient zinc oxide 20%).You can feel great about both. They are water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, paraben-free, and reef-safe. 

Sun Hat - A hat  is important for baby because it offers all-day sun protection for their head, neck, and eyes. We’ve chosen this one from Green Sprouts, which is lightweight and made from quick-dry material that meets standard 100 certification by OEKO-TEX® and has been independently tested against over 350 harmful substances. It offers UPF 50+ sun protection, blocking 97.5% to more than 99% of harmful UV rays. You’ll love the stay-put chin strap and the adjustable toggle to grow with baby, too.

Wet Bag - What do you do after splashing around? This bag from Bumkins allows you to easily stash and store your wet gear. The signature waterproof fabric and heat-sealed seams hold moisture inside the bag, making them ideal for swimming gear, diaper bags, cloth diapers, potty training , and more. Sized at 12" x 14" with a snap handle, these bags are perfect for when you’re on-the-go.
