Too Cute: Baby with Sunglasses

A baby with sunglasses looks so cute, but there are more important reasons to buy your baby sunglasses. Sunglasses block ultraviolet rays (UVR) and high-energy visible (HEV) light rays or blue light. UVR and HEV damage to the eyes can build up over time and lead to macular degeneration and cataracts later in life. So, encouraging your baby to wear sunglasses is not just a fun and cool thing to do. It is a healthy habit that lowers the risk of future vision problems.
Eye Development in Children
Babies under six months should not be in the sun, and after six months, they should wear sunglasses when they are outside. A baby's eyelids and the skin around their eyes is more susceptible to UVR damage than an adult's skin. Also, up to the age of ten, the lenses of children's eyes are clear, allowing more sunlight into their eyes, and that can cause damage to their eyes. Outfitting your baby with sunglasses is about protection and not just looks.

Say Something Forever with a Personal Message on a Plush Toy or Pillow

When it comes to gift giving, particularly when people want to make sure that their sentiment is forever remembered, custom monogramming is the best choice. Gifts for children, such as plush toys and pillows, can be made more personal and more memorable when they are embroidered with messages. Anyone looking for the perfect gift to give to a newborn, toddler, or even an older child who loves collecting plush toys, should consider a personal message on their next purchase.
Which Toys and Items Are Most Suitable for Embroidered Messages? Not every toy would be suitable for monogramming.

With plush toys, bears and other animals are best for adding personal messages, and our…
