UV Sun Protective Swimwear for Babies and Kids

Updated on April 8, 2015

Baby Sun Suit

You want to give your baby or toddler maximum protection of their sensitive skin from the sun. Life will be easier with a UV protection sun suit as it saves the hard work of trying to apply sunscreen to a baby or toddler who doesn't want to cooperate. I'm sure you know what I mean. The material of the suit is very breathable, sturdy and non-clingy.

Sunscreen also offers a lot of protection but as sunscreen is expensive and many are not recommended for babies under 6 months, it is better to use less sunscreen when possible. When you get a long-sleeve sun suit, your baby gets more coverage with even less sunscreen. I find that the swim garment with a full front zipper is the easiest to manage.

When looking for the right swimwear for your child, you would like to look for a stretchy and comfortable material that helps protect their delicate skin. You can go for the certified UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) 50+ Breathable Sun Fabric. UPF is a number system given to clothing to tell you how effectively the fabric blocks ultraviolet (UV) radiation. For example, UPF 25 means that only 1/25th, or 4% of the UV radiation can penetrate the fabric.

While SPF only expresses a sunscreen's protective value, UPF applies to UVA and UVB radiation. 50+ is the highest UPF rating a fabric or garment can be indicated. Such indication means that the material is excellent for UV radiation protection. Besides checking out the UPF, it is also important to measure your baby properly before deciding on the size to purchase. Be sure to check against the size chart before purchase.

Protect Your Baby Against UV Radiation


Disposable Swim Diapers

Swim diapers are swim pants that are specially designed for pool or water time. They will not swell up in water like regular diapers and provide protection against leaks in the water, especially with the double leg cuffs so that they will not swell like regular diapers. They are designed to hold in solid waste and this will save your baby and the parents embarrassment and hassle as the solid waste is kept inside the diaper. You can change your baby more easily with the tear-away sides.

I am sure that you have heard of damage the sun can do to your skin. While you like to enjoy the sun when it is out, it is extremely important to prepare in advance for outdoor swimming, other water sports, or just sitting out in the shade when the sun is out.

We are exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun despite the season. The fact is that you may not feel the harmful effects of over-exposure to the sun until you feel sunburn. Children, especially young and fair-skinned ones are susceptible to sunburns. Here are some sun protection swimwear for your consideration. I recommend long-sleeved swimsuits for kids as they give maximum skin coverage and protection for young skin.

If you are planning to travel far, it is always wise to get all the right gear beforehand.

Wide-brim Sun Hats, Sunscreen and Disposable Swim Diapers

To fully protect your child, it is advisable to get a wide-brim sun hat and some suitable sunscreen for young skin. The baby sun hats are so cute and inexpensive and can go a long way. When it comes to sunscreen, make sure to check whether it is suitable for your child's age.

Oh, disposable swim diapers may come in handy as well. It is better to have everything ready before your swimming trip. Enjoy!
