Great Ideas! Kid-Friendly Sun Protective Gear Roundup

20 May

Sun Protective Gear for Kids Roundup

Summer is finally here – and so begins the daily dance of protecting your little one from the sun!

From sunscreens to creative cover-ups, we trolled some of our favorite online shops for some easy ways to dodge those harmful rays.

As you set aside 5 minutes to lather up on sunscreen before you and your child head out the door, it helps to have some sun protection tools in your arsenal. Like California Baby‘s sun care essentials kit ($36) – complete with sunscreen, sunglasses, swimmer’s shampoo/conditioner and more – which comes in an easy to grab tote.

Coppertone KIDS tear-free lotion ($11) and Seventh Generation Wee Generation baby sunscreen ($14), both of which stay active for up to 80 minutes, are perfect for tossing in the diaper bag. MD Moms‘s Baby Silk towelettes ($26) are vitamin-packed and ideal for rubbing on those little fingers and toes.

The best way to shield baby’s skin from the sun is to keep it under wraps. iPlay has rash guards ($19), sun hats ($6-$12), and water shoes ($14) that keep kids covered during water play. K&H Sun Protective Clothing‘s adorable T-Shirts ($25), developed by a dermatologist Mom, blocks out 99 percent of the sun’s harmful rays and are a necessity for kids romping around at summer camp or the park. Keep those bald baby heads hidden, too, with the Shaidee ($40), a cover that works like an umbrella on your Baby Bjorn or other baby carrier and weighs less than a smartphone.

Don’t forget those baby blues! Velcro a one-size-fits-all Sassy Suds & Sun visor ($6) your child’s forehead for defense, or shield those eyes with BPA-free Babiators ($20) which block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Creative kiddie cabanas act as a barrier between the sun and your kids, too. Kel-Gar‘s Sun Dome ($32), with 50 UPF, folds out for instant shade for your toddler on the beach or elsewhere and comes with a convenient carry case. SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy ($17) has a removable canopy with see-through mesh sides, which means your tots won’t miss out on any of the fun going on around them.

For the baby that takes on the world by car seat, the breathable Imagine Baby Shade ($35) fastens onto your infant car seat to repel sun, water and bugs and iPlay‘s Breatheasy blanket ($18) covers those chubby legs that are often left exposed.
