Sun protection for babies what do you need

Datum

As a parent, you want nothing more than to protect your baby from the harmful effects of the sun. Here are some important tips to keep your baby safe during sunny days.

Why do I need to prevent sunburn?

A child’s skin is not yet used to the sun and cell division is faster in children. Burned skin in childhood can double the chances of getting skin cancer later. For this reason, sun protection cannot be started early enough.

Sun protection products

Sun protection products are essential to protect your baby from the harmful effects of the sun. Consider sunscreen with a high SPF, sunscreens, hats/hats and umbrellas. By using appropriate sun protection products, you can effectively protect your baby’s sensitive skin and ensure they can safely enjoy the outdoors.

General tips for sun protection

Basically, good sun protection consists of 3 steps: Lubricate, Warn & Clothe.

Apply, apply and apply again

Choose a sunscreen with at least SPF30, but better yet SPF 50. There are special sunscreens for babies and children on the market that contain fewer added substances. Apply liberally and often. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially after swimming.

Fend off: Avoid direct exposure to the sun

Seek shade and stay out of the bright sun, especially during the hottest hours of the day. The sun is strongest between noon and 3 pm. The skin burns faster then, so it is a good idea to keep your child out of the sun during that time. Babies up to 1 year old are best kept in the shade all day.

Clothes: Use protective clothing

Dress your baby in light, breathable clothing that covers the skin. Choose long sleeves, long pants and a hat with a wide brim to minimize exposed skin. Also consider UV clothing, such as our UV poncho, or UV protective playsuits for extra protection from harmful UV rays.

Protect the eyes

Make sure your baby wears sunglasses with UV-protective lenses. This helps protect the eyes from harmful rays and reduces the risk of eye damage.

Hydration is essential

Make sure your baby is getting enough fluids, especially on hot days. Give small sips of water regularly to prevent dehydration and keep your baby hydrated.

By following these important tips, you can optimize your baby’s sun protection and ensure that your little one stays safe and comfortable, even on sunny days.

Tips for sun protection while in transit

When you’re on the road with your baby, it’s important to take the necessary measures to protect your little one from the sun even while in transit. Here are some helpful tips you can follow to make sure your baby stays safe and protected from harmful UV rays, both in the stroller and in the car.

Sun protection for the car and baby

When traveling by car, it is very important to make sure your baby is well protected from the sun.

For example, you can put sun screens on the car windows. These screens can help block harmful UV rays and lower the temperature inside the car, keeping your baby cool and comfortable. If you don’t have sunscreens, you can always attach our UV-resistant sun screens in front of the window.

It is also wise to ventilate the car properly and ensure adequate air circulation. Take frequent breaks during long car rides. During these breaks, you can take your baby out of the car and find a shady spot to rest and hydrate.

Sun protection for the stroller

Sun protection for your stroller is crucial to protect your baby from the sun’s harmful rays. First of all, our specially designed sun cloths are ideal for keeping your little one safely out of the sun. These cloths are breathable and with UPF 50+ sun protection they block all harmful UV rays. Thanks to 2 snaps you attach the cloths to the push bar of the stroller. This keeps sufficient air circulation into the stroller. Remember never to cover the stroller completely with a cloth, this may cause danger of overheating. Also, always place the stroller in the shade, and check regularly that your baby’s temperature remains comfortable.
