What do polarized sunglasses mean? Do babies need polarized sunglasses?
When should infants start to wear sunglasses?
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), newborns under the age of six months should not be exposed to the sun at all. You can keep them safe by using your stroller’s canopy, an umbrella, or the shade of a tree or a building overhang.
Although it is safer for babies to be outside in the sun around six months of age, it is still critical to protect them from the sun’s damaging rays. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the best strategy to save a baby from the sun is to use a hat with a brim, sunscreen, and sunglasses.
