Does My Baby REALLY Need Sunglasses?
Top 5 Reasons Your Little One Should Wear Polarized Baby Sunglasses:
Keys? Check. Wallet? Check. Sunglasses? Check. As parents, when we head out the door we do a quick scan to make sure we have everything we need for the day, which may involve gear for our babies. Diaper bags may include wipes and snacks, but we want to encourage you to take along sunglasses. You know, that essential thing you can’t drive or walk outside without wearing?
Many parents ask whether or not their baby needs sunglasses, but a good rule of thumb is that if you need to wear them, your baby does, too.
1. Their Sensitive Liddl Eyes Are Still Developing:
The eyes themselves are less pigmented, which includes the cornea, lens, and fluid in the eye. UV rays can pass through the eye more easily, which can cause damage to the retina. But you’re in luck! Our glasses are polarized for maximum UV protection for both you and your little ones.
2. Unfortunately, Sun Damage is Cumulative:
Rays entering the eyes of babies can affect them as adults. Think about it as adding layer after layer of damage over time, which can cause cataracts and macular degeneration as an adult. Most sun damage happens before age 18, so prevention is key. Do a big favor to your baby, and have them wear sunglasses!
3. Eyelids Can Get Sunburned, Too!
We think about our eyes and skin often, but what about our eyelids? Besides washing or brushing a bit of eyeliner on them, we don’t think about eyelids much, but they can get sunburned, too! Sunglasses help to block light so that eyelids don’t get sunburned.
4. Reflective Surfaces Can Cause Damage or Irritate Liddl Eyes:
Sunnies don’t just need to be worn in the summer - the sun is out all year long. Yes, eye protection should be worn when your baby is by the water or on the beach, but shiny surfaces like snow can also be highly reflective. Even though rays aren’t as strong during the winter, damage can occur, and shielding the eyes from annoying rays is a polite thing to do for your favorite Liddl sidekick.
5. They Are A Great Way To Showcase Your #BabyFashion:
Ok, ok. This may not be the most scientific reason, but they are just CUTE! Imagine your Liddlme all decked out from head to toe with their adorable shoes, darling outfit, squeezable cheeks, and…sunglasses. As if they couldn’t get any cuter!
