Babes, summer is here and that means all the pool time that my little family can get. We spend a lot of time at my parents home swimming and I always pack the essentials for us to play all day in the sun and to keep hydrated. Taking a toddler to the pool can be a lot and very stressful, but it also can be so fun and happy too if you pack the things that work the best for you and your littles. King loves to play outside so going to the pool is always so great for us to cool down for a little bit but also for him to be able to play outside.
My biggest tip & trick is to pack enough fluids to keep you hydrated and happy all day long. Getting dehydrated is something that makes everyone unhappy and grumpy. It also makes you not feel your best so my biggest thing is to pack enough fluids again, and again! I always pack vitaminwater because first off I love the taste. I love that it is such a yummy refreshing beverage for when I am outside in the hot sun chasing Kingster. Vitamins. Electrolytes. Zero excuses. is my second point. I love that it is enhanced with nutrients, vitamins, and electrolytes to help to keep me hydrated through the day and at the pool. Click here to find them at a Sam’s Club near you so you can snag the 20 pack to keep you hydrated on all your summer adventures.
Now let’s chat how to put together the perfect pool essentials bag for swimming and having a happy, almost stress-free (we all know it is never truly stress free) day!
Towels (one for the ground, one for you, and one for your little)
Toys for your little
Snacks, Snacks, and more Snacks
sippy cup with water for your little
a big ‘ole bag
First grab all your “supplies” for your pool day. You will want a towel for you, one for your little, and an extra for the ground. No one wants to sit on the hot cement and when you or your little come bolting out of the pool, you will want somewhere to sit down that isn’t hot so you can snuggle up in your towel for a minute.
Sunscreen, pretty self explanatory, but a total must. We don’t want a little lobster baby and mama coming home to dad after a day at the pool right??
TOYS! These are my secret weapon, grab some toys that your little can play with when they need a break from the pool. You can sit and play in the shade, sun, or wherever your heart desires and it will give them something to do when they need a break from the water.
vitaminwater, we chatted about this, but let’s talk about it again. Mama needs a refreshing drink while at the pool right? Something that will give her electrolytes, vitamins, and is enhanced with nutrients. Mama also needs something that will taste delicious and make her heart happy. Babes, vitaminwater is what you need. Trust me, snag yourself a 20 pack at Sam’s Club and you will be having one with you at all times, whether it is driving around running errands, a trip to the park, pool, etc. it will be your staple drink, trust me.
Everyone needs snacks at the pool right? Grab a few of your favorites, pack them up, and have them there to snack on throughout the hot, sunshine day!
Playing at the pool can be a lot easier, happier, and simpler if you pack the necessities. Pack all of these up in your bag, head to the pool, and have the most amazing memories with your little ones mama!
