Baby Sun hats are not just a fashion statement; they are a necessity. Infant sun hats protect your baby from the harmful sun and UV rays. Most children rack up between 50% and 80% of their lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18.
Remember that sun protection on a cloudy day can be more important then on a bright sunny day. Clouds can reflect and increase the sun's intensity, making it more harmful than on a sunny day.
Most pediatricians recommend wearing a sun hat and do not recommend using sun block on babies less then 6 months of age. The use of sun block can be harmful to a baby because they can absorb too many chemicals, and it can harm their cooling mechanism causing dehydration and overheating. The best way to protect your baby from the sun is wearing a sun hat, baseball cap, visor, fedora, or floppy sun protection hat. A sun hat provides protection for their head, face, eyes, neck, and ears. White infant sun hats, fisherman style sun hats, bucket sun hats, and Zutano sun hats are a trendy way to protect your child from the sun.
