Sunglasses to beat the heat—and stay in one piece.Best Baby Sunglasses

The sun’s rays do more than warm you up and give you a big dose of Vitamin D.

They can also damage unprotected eyes, which over time can lead to macular degeneration and cataracts. If your child spends a lot of time outside, it’s especially important to protect their young peepers from UV exposure, as their eyes are more sensitive to UV light.

That’s why we’ve gathered some great, kid-friendly sunglasses here that will safeguard your little one’s eyesight. (And don’t forget the sunscreen and sun hat!)

Light But Mighty

Why We Love It

These featherweight sunglasses are quality-made: full UV protection, polarized, certified free of BPA and phthalates and so sturdy they can be twisted and chewed with nary an issue. Roshambo guarantees your baby won’t be able to destroy their shades. If, by some miracle, your little hulk does damage them in the first year, Roshambo will replace them.

The shades are available in baby and kids sizes and a portion of all sales goes to Surfers Healing, a charity that teaches children with autism how to surf.

Too Cool to Ruin

Why We Love it

Your babe is going to abuse their sunglasses. And that’s totally OK. Babiators have durable rubber frames and lenses that can take a beating, and the 100% UV protection shields their eyes. For the first year, Babiators will even replace lost or broken sunglasses for free.

The sunglasses come in two different styles, multiple colors and polarized and mirrored lens versions. Fits children ages zero to five.

No Paparazzi, Please

Pop stars, step aside! These fabulous shades make any toddler instantly red-carpet ready. But they’re not all flash and rhinestones—they provide UV protection, too! Lola + The Boys, the kid’s clothing brand founded by fashion-model-turned-mom Irina Ovrutsky, creates looks that are both unique and functional, just like these sunglasses.

For an ultra chic look, you can also find them in black.

Timeless Look

Why We Love It

The Wayfarer: an iconic, squarish sunglass style made popular by Ray-Ban (and also Ferris Bueller). Your baby will be just as cool in these. The glasses are BPA, Phthalate and PVC free, and are 100% polarized for UVA and UVB protection. The frames are flexible and lenses shatter-resistant, and every pair comes with a stay-on strap. There’s also a variety of colors to choose from.

Uber Adjustable

Why We Love It

Australians were slathering on sunscreen and donning major eye protection way before it became cool. So they know a thing or two about what works best. This Australian children’s brand features ophthalmic-quality lenses that have 100% UV protection and are great at reducing the sun’s glare.

The nose and brow areas on the frame are made from rubber for extra comfort, and each pair comes with an adjustable, elastic head strap and a carrying bag that doubles as a cleaning cloth.

Great for Newborns

Why We Love It

While many sunglasses are a better fit for older babies and toddlers, you can start using these Kushies right away. Made from a flexible rubber, these sunnies are sturdy, with scratch-resistant lenses, while blocking UVA and UVB rays. The newborn size fits babies up to about 12 months and the toddler version works for 12-24 months.
