Gimme a spring break: Younger siblings tag along and make a splash

There’s nothing like a spring break vacation. And, when mom and dad decide this is a great opportunity for the entire family to take a break from the day-to-day routine and hit the beach or the slopes, depending on Mother Nature’s temperament, you must be prepared — and you must keep the babies and toddlers happy.

Whether you and your little water babies are planning a holiday vacation to surf the waves at the beach, splash around in the pool, ski the slopes and then hit the hot tub, or even just play after bath time, wrap them in a Kindhood poncho towel (above). Designed on the sunny beaches of SoCal where water is part of the daily routine, the fun patterns of Kindhood are created for all carefree, water active kids and available in different designs: Sonora, Aliso, Trestles, Strands and Raya ($57.00).

Here are some cool products that will make the trip worry-free and tranquil.

Smart, compact, clean and safe, the mifold® the Grab-and-Go Booster is a super-compact car booster seat perfect for traveling because it folds up and fits into a purse, glove box or luggage, which is why its safety and effectiveness is so amazing. The Grab and Go Booster works differently than regular booster seats — instead of boosting the child up to meet the belt, it pulls the belt down into perfect position for your child which makes it safer than traditional boosters. Plus, you have the peace of mind of having a booster with you always that you know is safe, portable, installed in seconds and 10 times smaller than a traditional booster. Perfect for traveling by car. ($44.99)

Baby Butz diaper cream is a certified all-natural product, which is gluten and paraben-free and never tested on animals is unlike any diaper cream on the market today. Not only is Hollywood clamoring for Baby Butz but doctors are too because the cream is 100 percent natural ingredients (and 30 percent zinc oxide) and begins the healing process immediately and stays put. Just four hours after applying the cream parents notice a visible improvement in their child’s diaper rash.

Baby Butz cream is the safest and most effective diaper rash treatment available without a prescription. Used in hospital neonatal units and many pediatricians hand out samples plus medical professionals have endorsed this cream. No chemicals, no alcohol, no perfumes and hypoallergenic. ($6.49  for 2 ounces).
