|Dumbo the Elephant has ears that would provide the perfect cover from the sun. Fortunately for Dumbo, his skin is tough enough to be protected from the sun but yet he still wears a hat. He might wear it out of a love for hats, but I like to think that he knows that sun protection is important.|
Young children however don’t have tough skin like Dumbo. Their skin is sensitive to the sun and babies’ delicate skin makes them particularly susceptible to sun damage. Childhood sun exposure also plays a key role in contributing to the risk of skin cancer.
|SunSmart has been telling us to slip, slop and slap for years with the new additions to seek shade and slide on sunglasses. Slapping on a baby hat that provides serious sun protection is extremely important. Our ears are often the forgotten area that doesn’t get protected. Leaving them unprotected increases the risk of skin cancer.|
No one wants their baby to get sunburnt, so it is important to find a baby hat that provides the ultimate sun protection and covers the face, neck and those precious little ears. A wide brim baby hat or legionnaire is the perfect accessory for your daily outing and family holiday.
