Sun Safety Finds Your Kids Need

Keep your kids protected without sacrificing style or comfort.

Glam Glasses


These playful Flower Babiators have gone through rigorous testing to ensure 100 percent UVA and UVB sun protection. The durable rubber frames can be bent, twisted, or stepped on without breaking, but in the case that they get damaged, Babiators will replace them for free within the first year.

Swim Styles

$48 and up,

Mott50 makes UPF 50+ swimwear for men, women, and kids. This Mini Kelly One Piece Swimsuit is made with super soft spandex and features a mock neck and thumbholes for complete coverage. For boys, order the matching Mini Major Swim Trunks and pair them with a plain white rash guard.

Cool Covers


Protect your sleeping or nursing baby while you’re poolside or lakeside with the Coolibar Batibou Sun Blanket. Although the cover is extremely lightweight, it blocks 98 percent of harmful rays. Plus, it comes in seven different color options and is big enough to use through the toddler years.

Hot Toppers


Made with 100 percent recycled fabric, the Sunday Afternoons Infant Sunskipper Bucket Hat is an eco and sun-conscious choice for warm days spent outside. The flexible brim allows for top-notch visibility while a Velcro chin strap keeps the hat in place. Want to switch up your baby’s look? The reversible design has a solid color on one side and stripes on the other.

Secure Specs


Little swimmers can take a dip or lounge on a beach towel while wearing the Speedo Sunny Vibes Goggles. Meant to be worn both in and around the water, these anti-fog goggles have polarized lenses that offer UV protection. The adjustable straps are more forgiving than traditional silicone designs, making pool prep a bit less stressful.
