If you're heading to fairs, festivals, or other large gatherings, consider an ID bracelet for your child in case you become separated. Great options for velcro bracelets, one-time use wristband sheets and watch-type bracelets.

Thank you for the sunscreen info! I love a good sunscreen and always wear my "floppy" hat when I work outside!
Have a pretty night!
