We got a new prop and it's totally appropriate for the beach! It's a hammock!! We took it out this afternoon to try with the sweetest little one and I was pretty happy with the results! I still have some kinks to work out and I'd like to venture outdoors with it, but overall I say it was a win! It takes a few more hands to pull it off than other poses. See what you think! Hands were on the baby at all times! Safety first!
