When my son was just a few months old, my sister-in-law gave me the most adorable little UV sun suit from LA. At the time I didn’t really understand covering a child head-to-toe, with everyone going on about our lack of vitamin D.
I soon realised that with the sun as hot as it is nowadays, these little suits, rash vests and UV hats are a brilliant invention. I still cover my children in sun cream head-to-toe when we’re on holiday, but it’s great to know that they have the extra protection as sun stroke is something that no mother wants come across. I’ve even started wearing the odd UV piece myself!
I’ve pulled together my top favourites for babies, boys, and girls, along with the odd accessory. Happy summer holidays!
