Baby Gear For Summer

We got a peek at the new Pottery Barn Kids line for summer and are obsessed with the bright and cheery line. See our favorite picks!

Pottery Barn Kids 2013 Summer collectionI recently visited my local Pottery Barn Kids store to order my dream glider for our nursery and happened to pop in when the store was hosting a preview party of their new 2013 summer collection.

In between munching on fresh fruit and brownies from Williams-Sonoma -- a pregnant lady's dream -- I was able to take a peek at the latest picks for summer and totally fell in love with the line.

Check out these summer baby gear favorites:

Beach bums

Seriously, how cute are these? Perfect for those warm days outside when a full outfit is just too fussy. They're made for the beach, but I could totally see my baby girl sporting the pink polka dot set outside on our deck while we're doing a little gardening. Plus, the diaper cover can also be used to cover her bum with cute little summer dresses. Diaper Cover & Reversible Sun Hat, $14

Water baby

These baby beach wraps will get baby warm and cozy after her first dip in the sea or after swimming lessons. They're made from soft cotton and are sized to fit your baby from infant up to 3T. They're also rated with UPF 50+ for sun protection. Have a large brood? Get the towel personalized so it's easy to keep track. Seahorse Baby Beach Wrap, $20; Shark Baby Beach Wrap, $20

Seaside sleep

Swaddling is all the rage these days and a sleepsack is on the wish list for most-parents-to-be. I've been on the hunt for a cute sleepsack that isn't all duckies and chickies (what is it about baby farm animals on baby gear?!?) and am obsessed with these. The seahorse and whale prints are totally sweet, but still have a cool graphic quality that keeps it chic.

It's also made with organic cotton, which is a great material to keep summer babies from overheating. Does your little one like to have their arms out? Check out the sleeveless sleepsack in a rugby pattern. Seahorse & Whale HALO SleepSack Swaddle Collection, $40

Deco diaper bag

Finding the perfect diaper bag can be tricky. You want something that's obviously functional, but don't want it to scream "baby on board!" This diaper bag looks like an innocent beach tote from the outside, but has tons of pockets to store baby gear. I like this graphic print in particular because it gives it a little flair, but isn't so girly it would embarrass my husband. Gray Deco Sausalito Tote, $160
