Forget everything you love and know about the beach: having a baby or toddler on vacation changes everything. He'll eat the sand, you'll need a tent (trust us!), and you're not actually going to get to lounge for more than five minutes. But don’t worry, it’s not all bad! Here’s what you need to know about taking your babe to the beach -- and how to make it a great experience for the whole family.
Go Bright Baby looks absolutely adorable in those matchy-match, ruffled swimsuits and tops. But once he becomes a walker, a runner or even a super-fast crawler, embrace the neon and dress that child in the brightest (and yes, maybe the ugliest) swim top you can find. This way, it's guaranteed that you -- and the lifeguards -- can spot your little guy in an instant. For bigger kids -- invest in a rashguard.
