Sun-Safe and Stylish: Dressing Your Toddler for a Day Out in the Sun

How to dress children in summer

Summer is nearly here and it's time to enjoy some fun in the sun with your little ones! Protecting your toddler's delicate skin from harmful UV rays is crucial. And what better way to do so than with some stylish and comfortable clothing?


Here are some tips on how to keep your toddler protected and fashionable this summer:

  1. Choose light and breathable fabrics: Opt for children's clothing made from light and breathable fabrics like cotton or linen. These materials will help keep your little one cool and comfortable even on the hottest days.

  2. Cover up with a hat: Hats are not only a stylish accessory, but they also provide extra protection for your toddler's face and head. Look for toddler hats with a wide brim that can shield their face from the sun.

  3. Choose long-sleeved shirts and trousers: Long-sleeved shirts and trousers are a great way to protect your toddler's arms and legs from the sun's rays. Look for children's clothing options with light and breathable fabrics that won't make your little one feel too hot.

  4. Invest in UPF clothing: UPF clothing is specifically designed to protect against the sun's harmful rays. Look for options that have a high UPF rating, which will provide the most protection.

  5. Don't forget the sunscreen: No matter how well your toddler is covered up, sunscreen is still a must! Look for a sunscreen that is specifically designed for children and has an SPF of at least 30.
