One of the most common questions we get about infant and children’s sunglasses is “what age should I have my child start wearing sunglasses?” The simple answer is as soon as possible! Sun damage to the eye is cumulative and non-reversible so you can’t start your children wearing sunglasses soon enough. Also, the younger the child, the more sensitive their eyes are to the harmful effects of the sun. That is why we make My First Shades to fit babies as early as just a few weeks old. The fact is that sunglasses really are necessary baby gear.
It is no surprise that My First Shades are the go-to baby sunglasses choice for informed moms. These infant sunglasses provide 100% UVA/UVB protection and they are designed to be comfortable! Our banded sunglasses are soft and comfortable so babies enjoy wearing them. If you start your children on a sunglasses habit from an early age, they will grow to love wearing them.
