Closed:Protect Your Child from the Sun with Bebe Soleil

Winner is


When I take my little man for a walk, we continually are frustrated because the sun is in his face. Instead of enjoying the scenery, he is squinting. I was given the opportunity to review Bebe Soleil sunshade. The sunshade was extremely easy to attach; I peeled off the plastic and let the magnets hold the sun-visor in place on the stroller’s canopy. We immediately went for a walk. As we walked, hubby and I periodically checked to be sure we could see him through the sunshade. Neither of us had any issues, at any point, viewing our little man, along the walk. Here in Florida, at this time of year, the sun is a huge factor whether we take a walk. It is bright and strong. The sun was not an issue the entire way! We never had to reposition the sun-visor and it kept the wind from hitting the baby. Besides blocking out the harmful UV rays, it will also make little man comfortable as he will no longer no squinting from the suns glare. Bebe Soleil protects your child's eye's and skin by creating a larger surface area that reduces the glare and shield's them from the sun's harmful rays.

I love when I come across a useful baby item that works! The Bebe Soleil shade is definitely one of them. I am also thrilled at how easy it attaches, removes and stores. After all, many times, we moms are alone with baby and stroller and need to load quickly. The shade itself is small and rolls right up into a tube like shape with a band on one side to hold it compactly in place. It is quick and easy to put on and take off–less then a minute either way. I think a storage bag would be great to help protect it. In the meantime, I will come up with something for this.

Sun protection is important all year round, not just during high temperature months.  UV rays reach you on cloudy and hazy days, as well as bright and sunny days.  UV rays will also reflect off any surface like water, cement, sand, and snow so sun protection at any time is a good idea. (Center for Disease Control and Prevention)

If your child does not have sun protection from these UV rays, you may be damaging their skin and eye sight.  One blistering sunburn before the age of 20 can double the risk for developing skin cancer later (Skin Cancer Foundation, 2000a,b,c,d).  In addition, children's eyes do not have the same sun protection ability as adults to protect from UV radiation.

I highly recommend the Bebe Soleil sunshade and it will make a great gift for a shower!

One extremely lucky Extreme Personal Measures reader will win a Bebe Soleil of their own!
