Protecting Your Child from the Sun

On the Beach
I am sure that everyone will agree with me when I say that our little darlings are our greatest joy.  As moms we protect them with the ferocity of a mother lion with her cubs.  With the summer months coming up the suns rays will be bouncing down upon their little, delicate skin.  Not only should we use sunscreen on our children, but sun protective clothing is also helpful.  One of the greatest products that I found to accomplish this task was a hat.  When my child was smaller I bought this really awesome hat that did just that.  They were called legionnaires hats where I purchased them.  My child had a few of them to go with different outfits.  They covered the back of his little, soft neck and had a wide brim to protect his face.

The Flap Happy hats at http://www.comfykid.com/Flaphappy-main.htm are identical in style to the one that I bought years ago.  I cannot tell you how much better I felt knowing that he was protected from the sun.  He also looked so darn cute in this hat.  My niece is having her first child this summer and that little girl is getting one from me so that she can have that same protection as my own child did.
