IT’S IN THE BAG

Lots of snacks

What is it about the beach that makes ev­ery­one hun­gry? Pack dou­ble the amount of snacks you’d nor­mally take. Steer clear of any­thing sticky: go for crack­ers and car­rot sticks popped into in­di­vid­ual pots to keep sand out.

Ex­tra nap­pies

Swim­ming nap­pies don’t ab­sorb wa­ter like reg­u­lar dis­pos­ables, so they won’t go saggy dur­ing a pad­dling ex­pe­di­tion. But they’re not com­fort­able to wear all day, be­cause the wee won’t be ab­sorbed ei­ther. So pack plenty of reg­u­lar nap­pies, too.

It can be hard for you – and un­com­fort­able for your baby – when it’s time to brush off the sand. Baby pow­der or even corn­flour can help: just shake some into your hands and pat on to her skin, keep­ing it away from her nose and mouth. Great for sort­ing out sandy hands pre-lunch!
