If you have a new little one, there are some precautions you should take to keep their delicate skin safe this summer. Beyond skin care, you want to keep them cool and comfortable too because a hot, sweaty baby is usually a cranky baby and that is not fun for baby or their parents. Let’s look at four easy ways to keep baby safe and comfy this summer.
Use a Safe Sunscreen
It is important to protect delicate baby skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. However, you don’t want to protect your baby with a chemical filled, toxic sunscreen. Opt for safer choices like Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen. This sunscreen has an SPF of 50+ and is free of biologically harmful chemicals like Avobnzone, Oxybenzone, Parabens, phthalates, PABA, 1,4, dioxane and UV chemical absorbers. It applies easily and absorbs quickly. You can find this sunscreen at Target.
Put A Lid On
Beyond sunscreen, it is important to protect baby with a good sun hat. There are sun hats that provide UPF protection as well as a wide brim to shade babies face. I like the Kiwi Sun Hat from UV Skinz. This hat features an extra-long 3 1/2″ back brim that completely covers the head and neck. Includes a chin strap and elastic at the back to keep it in place. Made of the softest cotton this hat fits babies age newborn to 6 months and has a UPF 50+. Don’t fret if your baby is older, they have a huge selection of hats for all ages.
Bring The Shade
The babymoov Anti-UV tent is lightweight and sets up in seconds so you can bring it with you to the beach, lake or park. It provides a comfortable, shady place for your little one to nap or play and protects them from the sun and wind. Tent has a handy mosquito net to keep them from being bitten. This shady tent provides the perfect place for discreet diaper changes. You can find this tent at Bed Bath & Beyond.
Cover Those Peepers
Don’t forget to protect your baby’s eyes from damaging UV rays. You can find many kinds of baby sunglasses on the market like these, Koala Kids Baby Shades Wrap Sunglasses. With babies everything is about comfort, if your baby won’t wear sunglasses, their eyes won’t be protected. That is why these wrap sunglasses with polycarbonate frames are made to feel comfortable and secure on baby’s face while providing 100% UVA/UVB protection. These sunglasses are available at Babies R Us.
