Rule 1: Wear sunglasses for more than 6 months
It is difficult for 0-6 months for babies to find suitable sunglasses. For babies under 6 months, the most important method of sun protection is not to go out at noon in the sun and use clothes to shade. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics AAP believes that this age group can also use a small range of baby sunscreens (face, back, etc.) with an SPF greater than 15. But the most important thing is the first two.
For children older than 6 months, sunscreen and sunglasses should be a regular product in addition to the previous recommendations.
Rule 2, while isolating UVA and UVB, close to 100%
What makes the four-eye party happy is that ordinary glasses are a kind of eye protection equipment: windproof, anti-gray and anti-ultraviolet, but ordinary glasses are not enough for UV protection. That's why we have to buy specialized sunglasses.
The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that the protection of children's sunglasses is at least 97%, but most of the regular children's sunglasses on the market can achieve nearly 100% protection. It should be noted that it is possible to identify UV rays that are both UVA and UVB. Protective ability is very important, and it is better to wear sunglasses without use.
Rule 3, using a drop-proof material, no small attachments
Safety is the core of any baby products. The key to the safety of sunglasses is to avoid breaking, otherwise the broken lenses may be scratched or swallowed by the baby. Similarly, some safety guidelines for other children's products should also be noted: trinkets that are easy to fall off may cause suffocation, and improper lanyards may cause the neck to wrap.
Rule 4, Comfort >>>>Beautiful
Wearing handsome sunglasses will make the baby very attractive, but compared to fashion and beauty, comfort is more important. The touch is good, the soft temple material, the back of the temple can help adjust the elastic band, etc. It can make your baby more comfortable and more comfortable with sunglasses.
Rule 5, the right size
The cover picture is wrong. In terms of age, children's sunglasses of the same brand are generally divided into three or four age groups, such as 0-2 years old, 2-7 years old, and 8-12 years old. You can also look at some more detailed figures, such as lens size and lens width.
Rule 6, let the children participate in the choice
If there are conditions, it is recommended to take the children to the physical glasses shop to choose sunglasses, so that the baby to choose their own sunglasses will reduce their mentality after the conflict. More importantly, this allows you to pick the products that make your baby comfortable and the right size.
Rule 7, persistence and lead by example
The biggest potential risk of sunglasses is that children don't like to wear them. This may be one of the reasons why many optical shops and manufacturers are not willing to make sunglasses products of 0-2 years old. But parents should be clear that sunglasses are the key armor to protect children's eyes from UV rays, which is much more important than rejecting TV iPads and choosing bulbs.
When the children don't like sunglasses, please don't give up easily. First, set an example by yourself, go out wearing sunglasses, set an example for the children, and then try to wear sunglasses when you go out or get on the bus. You will find that they may soon get used to it, and wearing sunglasses as the most normal thing in life.
