Summer Must-haves from Kelly's Closet

 *Post contains Affiliate links*

With the hot weather upon us, playtime in water is inevitable with little ones! Between water play and summer travel, parents stay pretty busy this time of year! Kelly's Closet has what you need to help get you through the summer!

Kelly's Closet has posted their top 5 summer must haves (follow link in graphic below) here:

Here are a few other things you will want to consider taking with you either on your summer adventures!

A Baby Carrier!

Whether you're heading on vacation or just heading out of the house for a bit, it's a good idea to have a baby carrier with you. Whether you have an infant or a toddler, a baby carrier will get you through the day! 

Easier to pack than a stroller, a carrier, be it wrap or soft structured carrier, will help when your little one just can't go any further. (Any parents that went to an aquarium, the zoo, or even a nice hike will attest to that!) Not only can you keep your little one close to you, but if they want to get back down later on, you don't have a huge stroller to push around, empty!

Onya Baby Cruiser

The Onya Baby Cruiser can hold to 75 lbs, and has a sleep hood you can tuck away. This doesn't have to be just for sleep, though... you can use it to shield baby from the hot sun above if you forget your little one's hat!


The MobyGO is a NEW (from the same company that brought you the MobyWrap) soft-structured carrier that will hold to 45 lbs. This also has a lovely sleep hood (or sun-hood)!

Cloth Wipes!

Yes, cloth wipes! They are great for more than just wiping bottoms! With so many different types of wipes available, you can fit what you're looking for for any occasion! Wiping sand off of your munchkin with wipes can be more convenient than a towel, because you won't be trying to dry off later with a cloth wipe (thus getting sand all over you or your little one!). They are also great for all those sticky messes that popsicles and ice cream can create. On longer car rides, they can be life savers! Everything from drying tears, wiping noses, cleaning up messy faces, and wiping up spit-up... you'll find yourself thankful you packed extra! If you have a toddler like I do, you'll also be thankful you had extra on hand to wipe up what he decided to throw on the floor of your van or into the window (because we all love to see pretty patterns on the window, right?).

Grovia Cloth Wipes
Grovia wipes are great to keep on hand for many uses. They are great for everything from faces to messes. (Terry-fabric)
Thirsties Fab Wipes
Thirsties Fab Wipes are my favorite all-around wipe. I love keeping them on hand because it doesn't matter what the situation is that I need a wipe for, I am always pleased with the results from the fab wipes. (One side velour, one side microfleece)

Itti Bitti Ultimate Wipes
The Itti Bitti Ultimate wipes are by far the largest wipes I have tried, and definitely the softest. They are perfect for faces and hands! (Both sides velour)

  2. This year it will be staying inside in the A/C when possible! Third trimester in the TX summer heat - no thanks! Normally SWIMMING!

  3. We like to play in the kid pool in the back yard, go to the splash park or to the ymca pool! Also love eating homemade yogurt popsicles. B-)

  5. Snow cones! There is a little stand in my hometown that is so good that we HAVE to stop every time we're in town.

  6. Definitely going swimming. So excited to take my little guy swimming this summer.

  7. We put the kiddie pool at the bottom of our slide coming off the swingset treehouse. Its a "big splash" for the kids and even the adults enjoy dipping their feet.

  8. We purchased a kiddie pool for our son. He absolutely loves water. My mom purchased a water table with am umbrella for an early first birthday present.

  9. Swimming and playing in the yard sprinklers!

  10. Homemade lemonade, fresh fruit, poolside view - sounds lovely.

  11. We're going to spend a LOT of time in the pool. :)

  12. We spend a lot of time at the grandads pool, splash pad or in the sprinkler, with a side of fresh fruit or homemade popsicles!

  13. I love to go swimming with the kiddos!! It's the only way to stay cool in the desert.

  14. our favorite way to stay cool is to ride around in our boat at the beach every weekend :)
