Our Latest Love: Babiators

My son is in LOVE with sunglasses. It seems like everywhere we go, there are sunglasses being sold for his age, and he will flash those long eyelashes to try and get another pair. Does he wear them all? He definitely does. Spending a few dollars here and there is not that big of a deal, especially when he is always wearing them.

I came across a brand, Babiators. First of all, I love the name. How cute! Next.....what they are about. Babiators offers your child 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays.

"Why should we be concerned about protecting our children’s eyes from UV exposure?  Children’s sensitive skin needs sunscreen to limit dangerous UV exposure and their eyes need protection too. Here are the facts:

When compared to adult’s eyes, children’s eyes have fewer natural protections against UV exposure, making them more likely to be damaged.
The more time you spend outdoors, the more susceptible you are to sun damage. Published scientific research concludes that up to 50% of lifetime UV ray exposure may occur by age 18, so it’s imperative that we protect our children’s eyes now!

According to Dr. J. Keller Wortham, a physician with Optimum Wellness Family Medical Group in Los Angeles, excessive exposure to the sun during daily activities can contribute to cataract formation, macular degeneration, pinguecula and pterygium (growth on the eye's surface), photokeratitis (snow blindness), and skin cancer on the eyelids. Those are a lot of big words, but the bottom line is this: protecting your children's eyes is critical.

The EPA recommends you wear sunglasses even on days with a low UV index!
Given that children’s eyes do not have as many natural protections from UV, children spend more time in the sun than adults, and time in the sun can lead to permanent eye damage, we feel it just makes sense for kids to wear sunglasses!

When it’s bright outside, adults wear sunglasses – our children should do the same!" ~ Babiators

 I always love when my son likes to bring out his rocker side. He spikes his hair, throws on his Little Trendstar t-shirt, his gray jeans, and these babiators fit right in with the style. They have colors for your little princess as well. If you have a daughter and a son, you know how it is. If you get for the one, sometimes it is just easier to get for both of them. At least this way you know that their eyes are being protected! 

Shown above are the Blue Angels Babiators. You can get them in black, silver, white, navy, lime, pink and black, princess pink and more! 

Head on over to Babiators now and let your child pick their own color. You both will be happy customers!
