When you begin thinking about sun, extreme heat and your baby’s health, it’s common to experience some anxiety. For those of us who char after 5 minutes under the sun’s rays, it’s easy to just consider staying inside with them rather than getting out and enjoying the weather, which isn’t healthy or practical either. A great compromise is the sun shade. Made for nearly every stroller, car seat and carrier on the market, these shades and covers feature fabrics with built-in SPF, plus they are breathable and cooling despite their enclosed design. And products like the car seat sun cover below keep metal harness buckles cool and comfortable when baby isn’t using the seat. No burns!
