Before you know it, you’ll be deep in diaper duty and all-nighters, so get in one last rendezvous while you can for the babymoon. For a week or just a few nights, forget about baby names and showers and focus on bringing sexy back. Here, our tips for the babymoon to fit your travel style:


Beach Lover
Escape to the beach for the three important R’s of pregnancy -- rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Florida and the Caribbean are two of the most popular destinations, but any beach that suits your travel interests is a great choice for sporting that new maternity swimsuit.

What to consider: There’s nothing more romantic than taking a walk on the beach during the day or in the evening with a stunning sunset as your backdrop. Just don’t forget the sunscreen -- a pregnant woman’s skin is usually more sensitive.

Where to go: Both the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Fla., and The Breakers Palm Beach in Palm Beach, Fla., are great options for easy-to-reach beach destinations. Kristy Hall, founder of Two and a Half Travelers, suggests renting a condominium at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort for a more affordable beach vacation. Hall also offers Santa Monica, Calif., as a destination for a moderately-priced beach getaway. “The beach is great, the pier and boardwalk are at your doorstep and you’re close enough to L.A. for dinner,” she says.

Insider tip: Enjoying the peace and tranquility of sugar-white sand, crystal clear waters and a warm, balmy climate is great for you -- and baby, too. The sun is rich in vitamin D; and a British study recently showed that children whose moms were vitamin D deficient had lower-than-normal bone mass.
