The Ultimate Beach Hat
It’s hard to find a hat that’s cute but will protect your baby’s head, neck and face from the sun’s harmful rays. The sun cap by bummi (seen here in the Koi pattern) offers maximum protection with an ultra-wide 360-degree brim and is also waterproof, making it the perfect choice for days at the beach or in the pool. The sun caps are also Canadian made in Montreal, and all fabrics and components are sourced in North America and guaranteed lead, phthalate and BPA free.

Letâ€™s Hear it For Boy Booties
Who says boy booties can’t be just as cute as girlie ones? We love these Freshly Picked Signature Collection Camo Moccasins. They’re 100 per cent genuine leather and 100 per cent adorable. A unique design also makes them easy to put on and take off and they stay on even the tiniest of toes. (Available in sizes 1 to 10.)

The Perfect Hair Clip
Bang issues start young. That’s why even toddlers need the perfect hair accessory. Baby Wisp Basic Clips are the perfect accessory to tame unruly hair or solve a bad hair day for even the youngest of divas. Basic Gater Clips (seen here) are perfect for keeping your daughter’s bangs out of her eyes and they come in so many fun colours there’s one to match every outfit in her closet.

Best Rubber Boots
Nothing beats a good rubber boot when it comes to keeping kids’ feet warm and dry – and so, we bring you The Jimmy. Just like all the other laidback footwear from Vancouver-based Native Shoes, The Jimmy captures that carefree West Coast vibe (you can even throw them in the washing machine) and these boots are made for puddle jumping. They’re durable, waterproof, odour resistant and come in three playful colours: Regatta Blue, Hollywood Pink and Crayon Yellow. nativeshoes.com
