Mummy Confession: I’m really not a huge fan of summer. Coming from a cooler state in the US, I’m not used to this blistering heat even after years of being in Australia!
Summer is coming! How fast did that year go? I’ve found some pretty cool looking things out there for babies and toddlers and I wanted to share them with you! Check out all of these great products (some of them maybe I hope to purchase!) and most of them ship worldwide! I love finding new and innovative things to help mums and bubs, and I hope you love some of these. Included below are some innovative Towels, sun protecton, and swimwear for babies through kids (and some even through adults)!
What are some of the products you can’t live without in the summer?
Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post and is in no way affiliated, provided or associated with the following companies. I just love how these look. I have not tried any of these. However, if the brands would like to gift me any of these to try, I am happy to do so 😜
Nature Baby Poncho Towel
This double layer organic cotton terry towelling poncho is the perfect thing to dry off after a day in the pool or at the beach! Rather than try to keep a towel wrapped around a fidgety baby or toddler, how about this poncho instead? Perfect to keep on while they dry off! I wish these came in my size! It comes in 1-2years and 3-4 years sizes. You can find this at Nature Baby’s Website (click here) for $49.95.
Product: Poncho (wearable) Towel Ships: Worldwide (over $150 ships free worldwide) Price: $49.95
Musluv Muslin Wrap with SPF protection
This innovative muslin wrap has 50+ UPF rating and air permeability! Rather than using regular muslin wraps to shield bub from the sun, the Musluv has ties to hold the wrap in place and keep baby’s sensitive skin protected from the UV rays while still letting air through. Easy to roll or fold, it’s easy to transport for every day use. It comes in one size (105x105cm) which is great for hanging on the pram or baby carrier! The Musluv is available on the Musluv website (click here) for $74.95-$79.95 or get one on their Kickstarter program (here) from $65 (or less if you pledge more money).
Product: 50+ UPF rated muslin wrap Ships: Worldwide Price: $74.95 & $79.95
Rashoodz swimwear and hat
Rashoodz is on of the most interesting swimwear items I have seen! It has snaps at the bottom for easy nappy changes and snaps to keep the hat in place! This would come in handy for babies with nappies or toilet training toddlers and they are sizes 000 through 3 years! Both long and short sleeve rashes are available, making it the perfect choice for eczema bubs, keeping everything covered from scratching. Besides those great innovative features, they offer rashie shirts, swimsuits, and hats to match! All of their swimwear and hats are UPF 50+ for proper sun protection and are chlorine resistant fabrics. They even offer swim nappies, sunnies for kids, and women’s rashie shirts! You can purchase the Rashoodz swimwear on the Rashoodz Website (click here) or select stockists from $35 to $70 per set.

My Water Bubs flotation swimwear
My Water Bubs is floatation swimwear suitable for children ages 1 through 3 years old. This helps while kids learn to swim, to keep them floating a bit better! Rather than purchasing a swimsuit and a floatation device separately, get both in one! Suits are tailored to their weight rather than their age as the floatation is adjusted accordingly. They have so many cute designs available! Australian customers get free shipping, and international customers have flat rate shipping available. You can find the My Water Bubs swimwear through the My Water Bubs website (click here) for $49.95.
Product: Flotation Swimwear for toddlers Ships: Worldwide Price: $49,95
Sand Cloud Sand Resistant Towel
I heard of this product through a friend, but investigated further and they seem to have a nice range of other products, too. The towel is supposed to be easier to shake of sand when you’re at the beach, which is something I know can get pretty frustrating. You don’t want to bring half of the beach every time you go! They have a lovely designed line of towels and ship worldwide. They have a rewards program as well, and the company itself puts money towards saving marine wildlife. My friend who is a Sand Cloud ambassador even has a code that can get you 25% off your order. Use ‘jbreneman25‘ when you check out for savings ! (This code may earn benefits for my friend on qualifying purchases. It doesn’t effect the price you pay at all, but even saves you some money in the process!) To purchase anything from the Sand Cloud range, you can visit the Sand Cloud website (click here) or find a local Sand Cloud Ambassador. The Sand Cloud towels start at $51 and vary according to size and style.
Product: Sand-resistant Towel Ships: Worldwide Price: $51+
Wotnot Naturals Sunscreen
Having a baby with sensitive skin, finding a sunscreen that will protect his skin and not upset it at the same time is difficult. Whatnot brand has a whole line of products for baby, men, women and even pets! Their 30 SPF protection contains all natural and certified organic ingredients. It’s free from titanium dioxide and made with recyclable packaging. Definitely worth trying for someone with sensitive skin, even if you’re not a baby!

Little Toggs Happy Nappy
The happy nappy is a reusable swim nappy which prevents leaks and lets bub swim in the water without the need for a swim nappy underneath their swimsuit. They have a range of reusable swim nappies contained in swim costumes, wet suits, board shorts, as well as just by themselves in the happy nappy. This is a great idea, so you don’t need to purchase additional products, or need to find a new nappy every swim! They have many cute designs for boys and girls as well as a range of swimwear and floatwear for babies, children, and even swimwear for adults and children living with disability. You can purchase the Happy Nappy on the Little Toggs Website (click here) and prices range from $29.95 through $52.95.
