We're going to San Diego this Saturday for 9 days (woohoo!). My husband's in the navy and will be doing a week long training, so it'll be me and my 18 month old at the beach most days. She likes to run and bellyflop into the water...it's terrifying!

How do you keep your LO's safe at the beach? Life vest? Floaties? Most I find say 30 pounds and up and she's only 24 or so.

Any recommendations on this and really any beach gear would be appreciated!
