    Baby on the sea side Vs Baby on the mountain for the summer vacation?
    tamaricek posted:
    I need your opinions, please!
    We are thinking about traveling to the sea side in July, when my baby girl turns 11 months. I wonder if it is a good idea, since we are discussing a vacation in Greece, which ia a very hot (and beautiful :) country.
    I am worried about her reaction to the sea water and hot weather, although we would be taking her to the beach only early in the morning and late afternoons.
    Or, maybe, a vacation on the mountain is a better idea for this summer?
    Thank you all!!!

    We live in Ohio and travel to Florida every month. DD loves the sun and loves the pool. All babies are different. We haven't taken her to the beach. I am too afraid of all the bacteria and germs in the water and sand. But she loves swimming. We put baby sun lotion on and I'm thinking its like 60 spf (its the highest we could find at the store and its made just for babies). Some babies are very sensitive to light. DD is very tanned looking so she does well in the sun. I prefer not to take her to the beach, but it's really your preference.
