Protective Sun Gear for Summer

The heat and power of the sun is a welcome change after being indoors all winter, but it is not without its challenges for our little ones! Here are some of our favorite options for protecting kids this summer while still having fun!

1. The iplay reversible bucket hat protects your little one from the sun with its UV 50+ fabric. It is also reversible and available in boy & girl prints. 2. Babiator Sunglasses are UVA & UVB protecting. While they look adorable, they are also important for our little ones. Their eyes need to be protected just as much as their skin from the harsh rays of the summer sun! Babiator sunglasses are made from rubber so they are less likely to break. 3. Logan & Lenora Wet/Dry Diaper Clutch is a must have for summer! Not only can it hold all of this great stuff in your diaper bag, purse or stroller, but it can also hold swimsuits, or diapers when you are on the go! 4. The Kids Konserve Squiggle Ice Pak is non-toxic, sweat free and made from recycled bottles. These ice packs are must haves for picnics, lunches, and even for baby carriers! (Yes, you can tuck them into a carrier to help cool you and baby). 5. Does your little one have a bug bite, dry skin or slight rash? The cure is theHero stick. This amazing stick can fix boo-boo’s too! This is a must have in any mom’s bag. 6. We can’t say enough about this amazing lotion! It is perfect for little ones with eczema, rashes, or just dry skin. In fact, we even use it on our skin as a daily moisturizer! The eczema cream is approved by the Eczema Society for anyone with eczema. If you have a little one with eczema, put this cream on under their sunscreen to help prevent break outs. 7. Buzz Away has been our long standing favorite for bug repellants. We take it everywhere we go ,and we always come away bite free. It is safe for you and safe for your little ones, too. 8. Tru-Kids sunscreen is used by all of the staff at Franklin Goose, our family, and our friends too! We use it at the beach, swimming at the pool, and even scuba diving. It is seriously amazing! It is a customer favorite year after year and gets an almost perfect rating from the EWG for its non-toxity. It is available in a waterproof formula too. 9. Wishgarden Kick-It Allergy for kids is a great seasonal or as an on-the-spot allergy solution. The tincture is fast acting, providing relief to your little one all season long.
