Sun safe baby sling
Keeping your baby safe from harmful UV and UVB rays has been made easier with the development of a baby sling made from UV-blocking Solarveil® fabric. The Canadian company cxd baby, manufactures stylish baby carriers including the Splasher, which can be worn in the water. This season the Splasher ($65) has been enhanced with sun protection thanks to the Solarveil® fabric. Being able to bring your baby into the water makes splashing in the lake or pool a hands free activity. You’ll be free to play with water toys and also balance yourself while baby is held snuggled next to you. Solarveil® has total breathability and wicking properties in addition to the sun protection. The line also includes basic slings ($55), beautiful jewelled silk designs ($300 to $500) and other styles as well. Available at Grassroots (organic cotton only) and Funky Baby in Toronto or on the web at www.cxdbaby.com.
