With all the talk of shielding our littlest love’s skin from the sun, let’s not neglect another important body part worth protecting: eyes!
I see parents all over South Florida toting their squinting tot sans hat and sunglasses while they sport over sized shades and a floppy sun hat. Some are quick to blow it off saying “oh, he won’t wear them”, but your baby would probably try to pull off his onesie if you didn’t put one on him every day. Don’t give up if he pulls them off once, or a hundred times, keep trying!
It also helps to have some cool shades with excellent sun protection, a flexible frame and strong lenses that are virtually indestructible, float in water, don’t have any screws and are identical top and bottom so toddlers can put them on themselves. Where do you find these? Julbo!
I’ve searched long and hard and these are the best baby/toddler sunglasses I can find. Check out www.julbousa.com/baby for details, but sometimes you can save a few bucks buying them from Amazon, see below (note the different sizes: Looping 1 is for 0-12 months, Looping 2 is for 12-24 months and Lopping 3 is for 2-4 years).
