Summer is upon us and trips to the beach and hanging out at the pool can’t be far. So if you are looking to buy appropriate swim wear for your children, keep the following in mind:
You should watch out for the sun when on the beach or in the pool. You can of course use sunscreen lotions and creams but most will not be able to withstand long periods in the water and the sort of rough housing that children indulge in. So it is a good idea to use UV protective swim wear for children.
A number of such products are available, such as this swim romper for infants. This one will fully cover the torso and the limbs as well and has a crotch opening for ease of use.
For older children as well, you get this kind of two piece swim suit that protects the limbs from prolonged sun exposure. These are available for girls up to their mid teens.
And don’t forget protective gear for the head; a sun protective hat with a flap that falls over the shoulders is a good idea because it will help to protect the face, ears and neck as well, otherwise your kid can end up getting painfully sun burnt.
