Grabbing our sunglasses on the way out of the door is second nature for many of us. But what about protecting baby’s sensitive eyes from those powerful UV rays? Thankfully, there are a ton of baby sunglasses in the market now – from polarized to impact-resistant. Our little ones can get out and enjoy the sunshine safely, all while looking snazzy in cute sunglasses.

What You Should Know

  • Polycarbonate lenses ensure durability.

  • A neoprene band keeps them securely attached.

  • Highly affordable option.

The flexible rubber frames on these sunglasses tolerate rambunctious play or baby’s attempts to escape them. The 100 percent UVA/UVB protection helps protect young babies from damaging their sight, especially when they’re young enough to have poor head and neck control. A 1-year manufacturer’s warranty offers extra peace of mind. Reviewers note that, while advertised for birth-24 months of age use, they aren’t adjustable enough to ensure a comfortable fit for newborns.

Review Highlights

I’ve been using these with my 7 Month Old for over a month now. They are slightly curved, which fits the frame of her face perfectly. The band is long. I have to pull it back further in order to make it tight around baby’s face and less likely to move. It’s doable, but the band sticks out to the side and looks funny as there is no velcro past a certain point.”

What You Should Know

  • 0-12 or 0-24 month sizing available

  • Lightweight TPE construction

  • Bendable frames tolerate child handling

These baby sunglasses offer a wide selection of sizes and colors, so finding the right fit for your baby has never been easier. Removable straps provide additional flexibility — and speaking of flexibility, feel free to bend and twist these frames with no fear of snapping. There’s something for everyone with UVA/UVB protection and dozens of color options, including matching mommy-and-me sunglasses in some colors.

Take these stylish frames to your tot’s optometrist. These sunglasses are a great way to prevent sun damage for children who need prescription glasses.

Julbo’s size I sunglasses are perfect for babies who are too small for some other baby brands; reviewers report using them easily on babies under 6 months old.

Though several reviewers noted that these modular glasses offer tons of flexibility for very young babies, the straps still don’t adjust down enough for a tight fit.
