Does anyone have experience taking an 8 week old to the beach?

We took DS1 to the beach probable before 8 wks, but it was in LA in Feb. If you have him in the shade the whole time, I would put him in just a thin onsie and make sure that he is covered with the umbrella. Maybe you could buy a little battery operated fan, one of those handheld ones, and use that on him periodically. Good luck, I hope you enjoy the beach, and not just the views.

We were just at the beach like 2 hours ago. he stayed in the shade and wore a UV shirt and his diaper because honestly I was more concerned about him getting sunburn then getting 2 hot. babies can self regulate pretty well. I would make sure he's eating regularly. I encourage comfort nursing on hot days. good luck and have fun.
I'd also cross post on the may cottontails...I'm guessing more of them have braved the beach.
