Sun Safety Tips for Babies: How Sunglasses Can Help

Jun 12, 2024

As the weather warms up and sunny days become more frequent, it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy fresh air with your children.

Whether you’re planning a day at the beach, a picnic in the park, or just a stroll around your local area, it’s important to remember that your baby’s skin and eyes need extra protection from the sun.

Here at Babiators, we’re all about keeping your little ones safe while they have fun. So, let’s explore some sun safety tips and discover how our stylish sunglasses can help protect your baby’s precious eyes.  

Understanding the importance of UV protection 

Babies’ eyes are much more sensitive to UV rays than adults’. Their eyes allow more harmful UV rays to reach the retina, increasing the risk of future eye problems. That’s why it’s crucial to shield their eyes with high-quality sunglasses. Babiators offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, giving you peace of mind that your little one’s eyes are safe from the sun’s harmful rays. 

Choose sunglasses designed for babies

Babiators are designed specifically for children, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. The comfortable rubber flexible frames are also soft against little ears and noses. And if your little one has some horrible nashers coming through and decides to chew on them, the frames are entirely BPA-free!

Make sunscreen a daily routine

Some UV rays can still reach your baby’s skin, even with the best sunglasses and hats. Applying a baby-friendly sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to exposed areas is essential. Don’t forget those little ears, the back of the neck, and the tops of feet if they’re not covered.

Lead by example

Babies love to mimic their parents, so why not make sun safety a family affair? Wear your sunglasses and hats, and apply sunscreen together. When your baby sees you taking sun protection seriously, they’ll be more likely to keep their sunglasses on without a fuss.

Create shade

If you spend the day outside, try to create shade wherever possible. Portable umbrellas, tents, or even a large tree can provide an excellent, shady spot to protect your baby from direct sunlight. This way, they can play safely without overheating or sunburn.

Enjoy outdoor activities during cooler hours

The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 am and 4 pm, so plan outdoor activities for the early morning or late afternoon. Not only is it more relaxed, but the UV exposure is lower, making it safer for your baby to be outside.
