*Thank you BuyBuy BABY for partnering up with us on this post. All opinions are my own.*

We had the privilege to visit our local buybuy BABY store here in Scottsdale, where we were greeted by Diane, our baby expert associates. She guided us around the store where we were able to browse and learn about all the products most moms wouldn’t realize they wanted during the summer days. It was nice not having to really search for things, especially things we didn’t even know we needed. Diane pointed us in all the right directions and shared with us all the top sellers in her store. I was amazed at all the products and choices that you could choose from. There are endless amounts of products that you could use during the warmer weather, and I’m excited to be sharing with you a list of summer items that you most likely want or need. 


Make sure to go through the list and comment below on your favorite items listed!
