Much more than a fashion accessory, sunglasses are essential to protect baby’s sensitive eyes from UV rays. Little Guest has selected for you 8 trendy, chic and fun pairs of infant sunglasses that will protect your little one in style. Whether you’re looking for baby sunglasses with straps for maximum comfort or luxury sunglasses for style, you’ll find it all in this list.
« Are baby sunglasses really essential ? »
Children’s eyes must be protected at all times: whether in the shade, in the pool or on the sand, because of reverberation. Don’t forget that their big curious eyes are more sensitive than our adult eyes. It is only from the age of 12 onwards that your child’s eyes benefit from natural protection, when their lens has gradually become more opaque over the years.
« Which sunglasses should I choose for my baby? »
We advise you to invest in glasses with the CE label, so that they comply with European standards and regulations. Regarding the lenses of the glasses, opt for models with a minimum index of 3. In bright light, at sea or in the mountains, prefer protective lenses 4. Finally, leave the « fancy » glasses at home! They generally have tinted lenses that are not treated against UV rays!
« What can I do if my baby don’t want to wear it ? »
Plan B is to dress baby with a cap or a light hat! Of course, a headgear does not replace an anti-UV frame, but it does limit the effects of direct radiation and minimizes the risk of sunstroke!
« When is it necessary to insist ? »
The impact of the sun varies according to the seasons and/or altitude. From April to September, vigilance is required at our latitudes, but it is rather in June and July that the intensity of ultraviolet rays is the most important. During the day, it is between 11am and 3pm that UV rays are particularly strong. Finally, do not forget that clouds can distort the risk assessment. The absence of direct sunlight does not in any way mean the disappearance of UVB radiation.
