Baby and Toddler Sun Protection
It's June and the summer activities have begun! We all know that summer fun = more time spent in the sun, but do you know how to protect your baby from the suns harmful rays? Whether you are a new parent or an experienced pro, keep reading to find out more about protecting your kids from the sun.
The number one way to protect your baby from the sun is with shade and proper clothing. Our swimwear is made from UPF 50+ fabric, which blocks 98% of the suns rays and provides the best coverage. Our sun hats start at 0-6 months and are adjustable to provide the perfect fit and coverage. The adjustable, anti-choke chin strap allows the hat to stay on the smallest of babies.
Because babies have sensitive skin, you should avoid putting sunscreen on infants up to 6 months. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends avoiding sunscreen that contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, as it may irritate baby's skin. In lieu of sunscreen for young infants, opt for a sun hat and rash guard, or one of our full body sunsuits!
We have so many sun-safe options for your baby that make sun protection super easy, including sunsuits, rash guards, and other swim sets. Our best selling sunsuit provides coverage from neck to ankle, protecting your baby's sensitive skin from the sun. Along with maximum coverage, our designs feature convenient full zippers for super easy changing, even when wet.
Easily keep your babes sun-safe with our adorable UPF designs. And if you're looking for UPF clothing for the days you're not at the pool or beach check out of sister brand, Shēdo Lane, which specializes in UPF clothing for the whole family, even your little ones.
