Baby Beach Tent

A baby beach tent should be on your top ten list of things to bring to the beach if you have little ones. Babies have very delicate skin and because of their small bodies, within a short time frame your baby could get sunburned or dehydrated.

If you want to go to the beach or enjoy the great outdoors bring the baby and a tent with you.

The tent fits right into this round carrying case. Place a cotton sheet on the bottom pad.  

The mesh portion on the sides and bottom of the "tent" allows air to circulate.  It can be used on or off the beach as your "pack-n-play" for bedtime.

Shade Shack Beach Tent Easy Automatic Instant Pop Up Sun Shelter

Coleman Beach Shade

Here is a baby beach tent that looks just like a regular tent. This tent by Coleman has a bottom to it that extends out.

 Your baby or toddler can take naps in the shade and be protected from the sun and the wind.  It's also a good place for children to play if they need to get out of the sun for a while.

It has a rear "window" that can be opened for air flow and ventilation or close it for privacy.  Zip up the front door and it can be used as a changing room.

This particular tent takes a little more effort to put up - you need two people, not one and most people say it takes about 10 -  15 minutes to set up the first time - but easier the second time. The best idea is to set it up once at home to figure it out so you can quickly enjoy the ocean and sand the first day you are on vacation. It holds up well in wind if you use the sand bag method.

An average baby beach tent will block 98 % of the sun's harmful UV rays, but you should still protect your baby with a baby rash guard if they are old enough to crawl and move out of the shaded area. A sun hat is also a good idea to protect your baby's delicate little head. Anyone can have a great day at the beach with their baby with a little preparation and with a few good beach supplies.
