We are getting ready to hit the beach for a couple of weeks with my family and our 10 week old daughter. We have a big beach canopy for shade, and because our house is about 5 blocks from the beach, I was planning on wearing her in the carrier when I walk down. (I'm nervous that a carseat/stroller combo would get stolen or clogged up with the sand.)

I'm not planning on having her out for an entire day--it's been pretty hot here--but is there anything I'm missing? Should she wear pants to protect her teensy legs while in the carrier? Is just a onesie ok while on the beach? Any tips & tricks for taking a LO to the beach would be much, much appreciated!
