Beach vacations with newborn baby -- is this stupid?

Jump to last reply

Hey all -- I've read all the posts on Provo being great for babies with the absence of surf and soft sand which all sound wonderful. However, our baby is 8 wks old and can't even hold his head up yet so he won't be sitting on the beach or slashing in the water. I'm wondering whether it makes sense to take such a young infant on a beach vacation? We carry him around in a sling and I'm thinking we could lay him on a blanket when we are under an umbrella or he can lay on top of one of us. We figure we can carry him in a sling and keep him covered from the sun when we are walking around, and keep him in the sling when we are dining in restaurants. Does this sound unreasonable?

We were considering going to Barcelona instead but the husband thought the beach vacation might be easier with respect to diaper changes, feedings/pumping, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, we are feeling a bit clueless about what we need to consider with our new addition.
