Family Friday: Sun Protection Swim Hat

When my kids were younger, I put this hat on them pretty much every time we left the house, especially when I was babywearing them, because I wanted their head and neck to be covered. The one we had was some godawful green fish print — I’ve given it to my cousin for her daughter, and while it makes me happy to see her daughter wear it, I’m also glad to see that they have solid colors, for those of you who’d prefer that. Amazon has 12 colors in baby and toddler sizes. This hat was just was an easy, washable thing to throw on, and it made me feel like my kids were protected from the sun. iPlay Sun Protection Swim Hat

Family Friday: Light-Up Crocs

As a fashion blogger, I never thought I’d be writing about clogs, but as a mom I find that I come down on the side of Crocs in the whole Crocs vs. Native Shoes debate. Even though all the cool kids are wearing Natives, my kids are obsessed with light-up things so they love their light-up Crocs. If your kid does too and needs some comfy shoes for wandering around and playing this summer, do note that Crocs now has light-up options. Light-Up Crocs (also at Amazon and Kohls)

Family Friday: Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Radiohead

In case you’re not familiar with the Rockabye Baby! line of CDs, they are instrumental lullaby versions of popular songs (from Metallica to Bob Marley to Björk) and many of them are available to stream with Prime (which is great if you want to have Alexa sing your child to sleep!). I’ve also gotten them from the library. One of my favorites is the Radiohead CD, which is full of beautiful, layered songs that are really cool. I wholeheartedly recommend it if you’re a fan of Radiohead. The MP3 download is $10.49 and the CD starts at $3.98 used and $11.00 new at Amazon. Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Radiohead

Family Friday: Primary

I love the idea behind Primary — basically, that kids’ clothes should be colorful and fun, but not necessarily full of sequins and “cute” phrases like “DADDY’S PRINCESS!” As their tagline notes, there are no logos, no slogans, and no sequins — just awesome colors in the softest fabrics they could find, all under $25. Nice! The site also offers free shipping with no minimum purchase, and they’re offering 25% off today! This pretty picnic top for girls looks great — it’s $18, available in sizes 2-12 in 10 colors.

Family Friday: Lifeguard Clarifying Shampoo

With summer coming up, if you have little ones who’ll be swimming you’ll want to make sure to take care of their hair — especially if they’ll be spending time in chlorinated pools. I didn’t, and my little blond boy got totally dry, crunchy hair last summer. This shampoo from Fairy Tales seemed to work, and these little pouches work wonders if you’re already looking at chlorine damage. (They’re pricey, though; I got one for free from my cousin, a hairdresser, and you may want to check the salon locator if there’s one near you that sells them for less than $20.)  Having researched swimmer’s hair a bit for my blonde son, though, one of the best things you can do is spray water on your kiddo’s hair (or otherwise get it wet) before they get in the pool. Apparently, hair is like a sponge and can only hold so much water; if you get it wet with non-chlorinated water first, the chlorine water has much less to “stick” to.
