☀ STAY SAFE! ☀
WE’VE POPPED TOGETHER THIS HANDY GUIDE FOR HOW TO KEEP YOUR LITTLE ONE SAFE IN THE SUN!
Make sure you keep your little one’s body, arms and legs covered as much as possible with lightweight, loose clothing.
How about some super-soft organic cotton!? Wink wink...
During the day, why not go for a classic t-shirt and shorts combo, something that covers those little shoulders and knees to stop them from burning and allows them to run around and explore.
If you're spending time in the paddling pool, it’s best to wear swimming suits that have longer sleeves to cover the elbows, shorts that cover the knees and high necklines for that extra sun protection. Our Sun Safe Sets are perfect for keeping little one's delicate skin covered up as they offer UPF 50+ rating.
For the perfect finishing touch, pop on a hat to keep the sun off your little one’s face and ears! Pick something with a wide brim to cast lots of shadow or with a long panel at the back to protect the neck.
A great way to protect yourself and your little one from the sun is to simply hide away from it and find a lovely shaded spot to set up camp! Make sure that babies (up to six months) are kept out of direct sunlight and, remember, stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm (BST) as this is when the sun is at its strongest.
There are many places that offer good shade, such as:
☀ Parasols & Umbrellas
☀ Trees & Bushes
☀ Tents & Tepees
SPLAT ON THE SUN CREAM!
Combining clothing and shade together is fab, but for the ultimate sun protection we need to bring in the sun cream!
Always try and choose a sun cream that has an SPF of at least 15+ rating with a UVA/UVB protection and reapply lots of times throughout the day, especially when your little one is coming in and out of the water. Our friends at Green People are here to remind us of the easy-to-miss areas:
