Jamie Lynn Sigler’s Affordable and Awesome Summer Essentials for Kids

While actress Jamie Lynn Sigler may be best known for playing several characters on the big and small screen, her most significant role is to date is mother to sons Beau, 5 and Jack, 1. We recently caught up with the busy mom of two, who has teamed up with children's skincare brand Baby Bum in support of their You're A Good Mom campaign. Sigler also launched a new parenting podcast called Mama Said with co-host and close pal, musician Jenna Parris in January. We asked her about her favorite must-haves for the boys and the savvy shopping mom shared a few personal picks that we think parents will love not only because they're super cool, but they won't break the bank! Be sure to grab Jamie Lynn's fab faves while they’re still in stores!

“I really love Baby Bum Mineral Sunscreen Lotion,” Sigler says. “Kids’ skin is so sensitive which is why I’m selective with what I use and want a brand I can trust. With Baby Bum, they can run and play in the sun, and I know they’re protected. I also like that all of their products are plant-based. Their lotion is awesome, and then they have a Face Stick which is super easy to apply and travel with.” ($14; amazon.com)

“I often find people saying they have a hard time finding cute boy clothes,” Sigler says. “My favorites are ZARA for the trendier stuff and amazingly cute sweats and tees, Carters for all pajamas and then Janie and Jack for the fancier, special occasion stuff. When the kids are dressed in Janie and Jack, they look like a walking picture opportunity. I especially love their plaid button-down shirts! The quality is fantastic.” Her favorite pick?
