We spent a great 5 days in Guanacaste this week, soaking up sunshine and
eating playing in the sand at Playa Hermosa (Hermosa Beach, Costa Rica.) Summer Elizabeth sported her first ever baby rashguard, which really seems to be the best waterside sun solution for babies.
Rashguards lend UV 50 sun protection depending on the brand, meaning anything covered wins a free pass from gooey, sticky, chemical-laden sunscreens. Arms covered, tummy sheathed, tender shoulders hiding well away from harmful rays, Summer’s little body required very little baby sunscreen and she was free to play for a couple of hours without worry. As I’m sure you can tell from the photos, we bought the baby rashguard two sizes too large, so it fit more like a dress. I’m all about getting the most wear out of clothing, especially since we hit the beach so infrequently, so we opted for gender neutral red and way too big. I saw 6 month-sized wetsuits at the shop too, which was way cute, but practical? The jury’s still out.
Husband also joined the rashguard club this week, making us an entire family of wannabe surfers. (Never surfed a day in our lives.)
