I plan on taking a lot of walks this summer in a regular stroller (as well as using a jogging stroller quite a bit) and I've already encountered a few problems, the main one being worry about sun exposure. We have a very high quality stroller but the shade/canopy doesn't seem to cover my little guy enough to keep his skin un-exposed. I've been using a light blanket to hang over top and keep him shaded, but that won't be good when it starts to get hotter. Plus it is really annoying trying to keep it from falling off.
I looked up baby stroller shades at Babies R Us, but those seem very excessive. They are mostly black or plastic, and cover the entire front of the stroller. They seem like they'd be hot, and I don't necessarily want to totally shelter him inside the stroller. I just want to keep his face and skin out of the direct sun.
Anyone else worried about this and any ideas on how to remedy it?
I'm not too worried about it. I noticed the sun in her eyes the last time i took brooke for a walk so i am getting her a pair of sunglasses. I also got her a sun hat. If I am still worried about the sun i will use sunscreen.
Ok. Maybe I'm just being overly paranoid. I just know their skin is super sensitive and even a small amount of exposure could cause them to burn, so I was worried. I guess it'll be ok though. Thanks guys!
