    We’ve used banana boat baby forever and it’s worked great (pink tube). I had some other ones but they were impossible to get on. Also she always wears a hat and long sleeve rash guard, just part of her swimming uniform and she is unhappy if she doesn’t have her hat.

    We've got a super cute sun hat for her already. I'm so excited for her to wear it.

    We use Babyganics for body and my Trader Joe's SPF face lotion for the face, because no matter how "sensitive" the sunscreen, every other brand gets into my and C's eyes and burns like hell.

    And a Red Sox hat.

    Since we won't be able to go to a playground for Jeff Goldblum knows how long, we are looking to buy C a swing. It will hang from a pretty sturdy pergola in our backyard. He just turned one and weighs 28.5lbs. Any recommendations?

    Little tikes makes a good little slide too. Also works great for sliding into a kiddie pool!

    So now I'm also looking at slides and kiddie pools. My backyard is going to be a toddler's dream by the end of all of this.

    The list I have for possible gifts for A's bday is long and expensive. Obviously she needs a slide, swing, playhouse, table, water table, bike thing, and and and

    Where can I find bright fun baby boy clothes? I got some navy/gray basics but boys deserve brights and pastels too! I got some from my fav Primary already but I’m trying to find some other basics as well.

    I've seen some at Carter's before. I know I've bought bright boys jammies there and we have some bright green clothes from there. Pretty ON has some too.

    Yeah depends on your kid too. Comet’s C is a Gap kid. My C is a Carters kid. They fit pretty differently.

    ON is alllll dark. They’re typically my go to. I’ve already bought the few cute things they had in brights. Maybe I need to look at the GAP part of the website. I did just order some super cute GAP pj t-shirt and shorts sets for E from them, I usually get the ON ones but GAP had some extra cute prints and they’re perfect for summer play clothes. I peeked at Carter’s online last night but I need go look more closely tonight. I loved it for E but I feel like the boys stuff is all dark or weird critters like monsters, sharks, or alligators. Some are cute don’t get me wrong, but why do boys get all the “scary” animals?

    On E target has mostly been a bust because she’s a more of a bigger fit. I couldn’t even get their shorts/pants up her little thighs! I’m sure true baby stuff is different though, I will look there too.

    Lol believe me we are! Probably 75% of the prints I’ve got are dino, the rest are zoo or water animals whenever I see them.
