Summer - When your desire for Fun in the Sun is Burdened by UV Protetion Worries

How can you limit your baby or child's exposure to the harmful UV Rays without coating them in toxic cream?

  • Wear a Wide Brim Sun Hat
  • Use Natural Sunscreen like Green Beaver or Badger Brands formulating with zinc oxide to create a physical block from UVA and UVB.
  • Avoid Peak Sun Hours When Possible (12-4pm) and get out in the mornings and evenings instead
  • Wear UV Protection Swim wear at the beach, back yard or outdoor pools.
  • Find Shade
  • Wear light clothing
  • Remember to Reapply Sunscreen every couple of hours and after swimming or you will increase your chance of sun burns for sure.
  • Use Eye protection like Babiators to protect your child's eyes
  • Pack lots of water for outdoor hikes, beach days etc
