With the beautiful Sydney sun out in force this weekend, the beach is beckoning! My family loves the beach… water, waves, and sand. Actually, nothing is good about sand. It gets into everything. My children get it in the most unlikely and hard to clean places! Anyway, aside from sand, the beach is a great place to spend some quality family time. I was always a bit reluctant to go to the beach with my older two when they were babies as it’s hard for them to sleep and keep them grit-free. But I have found the perfect summer travel accessory, the phil&teds nest (available in NZL).
The nest is a super convenient portable bassinet that doubles as a travel bag. I can pack everything we need for the little guy in the carry bag and when we arrive at the beach I simply remove the flat-packed bassinet and pop it up in about 10 seconds. The nest has great airflow so he doesn’t get too hot and has a firm mattress that meets the new & strict safety standards for SIDS prevention. It also comes with an attachable shade to keep the sun off him and keep those pesky mosquitoes and bugs at bay. With the nest, the whole family can still enjoy the beach, sand and all.
