Summer means blue skies, barbecues, swimming, and sunshine. If your kids are like mine, they spend every waking hour playing outdoors. And while very limited sun exposure is recommended to process and maintain sufficient levels of vitamin D, overexposure to ultraviolet rays can harm your overall health—especially the delicate skin and eyes of babies and children.
Because I don’t want to deny my girls fun in the sun, we follow sun safety measures to protect our skin like slathering on natural sunscreen and wearing hats! To make sure I’m always prepared and that our family has shade on the go, I never leave home without flexible sun hats that can easily tuck into my bag. So, I’ve rounded up my favorites for keeping little ones cool and stylish in honor of July’s UV Safety Month.
Bonus: In addition to being so stylish, all of these sun hats are sold via fellow B Corporation Etsy or by independent entrepreneurs. What’s not to love!
