The temperatures are finally rising, which means summer is right around the corner. If you are enjoying the sun with small children, it's just as important to make sure their heads and necks are protected as it is to apply sunscreen to their skin. If your kids are anything like mine, trying to find a hat that they will actually wear can be a chore, but this summer season, there are some adorable options for boys and girls. As you shop for all of your summer gear, be sure to check out some of the best UV hats for babies.
Whether you're at the beach, the playground, or in your own backyard, exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (or UV) rays can be extremely harmful to your child, causing sunburn and even skin cancer. As Banana Boat notes, the most harmful time of day is between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., which for most kids is prime time for play. And that means it's even more important to cover them up.
Try one of the hats on this list on your baby this summer so you can spend less time worrying about sun damage, and more time having lots and lots of outdoor fun. By fall, your baby might actually forget that they don't like to have their heads covered.
