Now that I am a mom, it is really important to me that I help to ensure my boys are well protected from the suns rays. I make sure to (liberally) apply sunscreen before we head outdoors, and I also reapply every 2-3 hours, or after they are in the water. Something that I only recently found out though, is that your clothing is generally not good at blocking out the UV rays. Really, you should be applying sunscreen UNDER your clothing as well.
I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to review swim wear from GrUVyWear - they offer UV protection swim wear for babies, kids and adults. The swim wear will block 98% of the suns rays, while offering a UPF of 50+.
I was sent a suit for a toddler, but when it arrived - I was happy to find that both my kids would be able to wear the outfit. It is slightly big on my youngest, but it fits my 5 year old perfectly. The outfits are available in a number of colours and prints, and also come in long or short sleeves. I am happy knowing that when the boys are in their GrUVyWear - I can be sure that their unexposed skin will also be protected from the UV rays.
