Now that we have a house, we spend a lot of time outside and it isn’t even summer yet. Our yard does not have very much shade so protecting my little one from the sun is very important to me – sun protection beyond sunblock. So, in addition to wearing sunblock daily, we’ve added sun protection clothing into the mix. I first discovered that they made sun protection clothing when I was shopping for bathing suits for the little one. It doesn’t stop there, it extends to clothing and hats too. My favorite sun hat is i playSun Protection Hat because it ties under the chin and has an adjustable tie in the back for a nice secure fit.
Gymboree is one of my favorite places to get clothes for O because they seem to always have great deals. Over the winter I got a few bathing suits that have long sleeves, of course we got the Olivia for Gymboree two piece set with the rash guard top and an adorable teal leopard print suit. But iPlay also has great long sleeve rash guard shirt tops with UPF protection, even though it’s very hot out the long sleeves do not seem to bother her and it gives me piece of mind that she is less likely to get burned.
