Last week we mentioned the sun and how dangerous it is to leave your kids out in it too long whether they have protection or not, and we offered a little advice on how best to protect them. This week we’re going to go a little further into the subject and talk about specific UV protection that’s available for your kids when they’re playing outdoors and in particular swimming.
Most people are well aware about the dangers of UV rays these days and they’ve had more than enough warnings and advice about what to do to stay safe. However, some still fail to take even the most basic precautions when allowing their children to play in the sun.
In the second of our new Reviews feature, BabySecurity.co.uk discuss the Outlook Shade-a-Babe Buggy Shades; we hope you enjoy reading all about them!
During the Summer months, we all know the dangers of the Sun to our skin. It is more important than ever to reach for the sunscreen, slip on a tshirt and slap on a hat, and for no one is it more important than for your children.
Young skin is more susceptible to burning in the bright sunshine as it has yet to develop any inbuilt resistance to the sun’s effects. Whilst everyone remembers to apply sun tan lotion on the beach and by the pool, we quite often forget that whilst we’re walking around and feeling a breeze, the Sun is still beating down on us doing potential damage to our skin.
Baby Shades for Buggys and Prams are a great way to protect your children from UV rays, and provide a great shady haven from the hot weather. The Outlook Shade-a-Babe range are particularly excellent, utilising durable yet lightweight fabrics, manufactured to block out UV rays (with an effective capacity of 99.9%).
Outlook Shade-a-Babe UV Buggy Sunshades are available in a wide range of colours, ensuring there is one to match every taste and style. The uppermost panel of Outlook Shade-a-Babe Shades is manufactured with a three layers of protection for your child : lightweight UPF50+ material – the highest Ultraviolet Protection Factor rating available for fabrics forms the top layer, with two layers of ultra-fine yet thick mesh to add extra protection from the sun and insects. This large canopy provides a great shade over the child’s face, meaning they are less likely to be dazzled by the Sun (a nasty experience for an adult, let alone a child). The lower half of the Outlook Shade-a-Babe Shade is manufactured from the same fine mesh as the upper panel, this works perfectly to reduce the amount of ambient sunlight inside the Buggy Shade, and also acts as an insect net, stopping all airborn nasties from flying near and upsetting your child.
One particularly good feature of the Outlook range is that the front panel of the UV Shade can be zipped down, making it easy to pass things to your child, and allow them to climb out if they like. This front panel easily folds away in to a handy pocket on the below the opening; allowing quick and easy stowage as necessary.
The every single detail of the Outlook Shade-a-Babe shouts “easy use”. With large, strong Velcro tabs to hold the Buggy Shade in place, and chunky, easy to grip zip handles; it is very clear this is a high quality, ultra-durable product.
As we reach the end of the summer months, hot days are still cropping up here and there, and the Outlook Shade-a-Babe is a perfect accompaniment for days out in the sun. Lightweight, easy to install, it is a must for every car boot, ready for action as and when required.
