Just rent the chairs and umbrellas that they set up for you, makes like 10x’s easier! Also baby powder to get sand off at end of the day (it really works)

I grew up going to beaches in SC and just got back from the beach in NC and we always rent chairs and umbrellas and never stay in resorts. You can check with the lifeguard station or the town or we asked our Airbnb host for local recommendations.

Baby carrier since Baby probably can’t sit on their own yet. Stroller probably won’t work in the sand, so be prepared to carry everything! We went to the beach with a stroller and instantly realized it was a mistake.

Took my daughter to the beach at 7m and she HATED it. The ocean scared her, the sand was hot… she screamed for 20m and i had to leave. Be prepared for that as it isn’t uncommon for babies to get scared of the ocean because of how big it is. That said - i got a special UV tent that she could chill in without touching the sand / being in the sun. They are about $30 on Amazon. Makeup applicators are great for applying sunblock on baby’s face / etc. Terry cloth swim coverup since i figured the towel would be harder to manage Loads of swimmy diapers and aquafor A bag you don’t care about getting sandy Bottled water to rinse off with (prevent overly sandy hands in mouths, etc)

Yes and beach toys to play in the sand.

Babies don’t like sun too much especially 4 month olds so see if you can get one of the huge sunbrella or a little baby tent with shade. Some of the baby tents have attached floor but if not, a blanket to put baby on. 4 months might be a little young for baby to be totally comfortable in the hot sun, so make sure you plan to make it an early day if baby is too uncomfortable (I took my 6 month old to the beach once and we lasted about 10 minutes)

So helpful! Thank you

I am very early in pregnancy and working at a startup. We’ll either get Series B funding between now and my due date or we’ll fail. It could go either way and I’m honestly not sure what’s more likely. I’m invested in this company but worried about the risk of losing my job just before having a baby. Anyone have any advice? I’m really stressed about it and am not sure what to do.
