I love hanging out with my son outside enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having in the Chicago area lately. We take walks, hang out at the park, sit on our front porch, hang out in the pool, and we’ve even been to the zoo already this year! I love watching him laugh and have fun – and he loves being outside! (I’m sure that has a whole lot to do with the fact that we pretty much hibernate in the winter!)
What I don’t love, however, is how the harsh sun effects by poor little pale baby boy. My son’s skin is so fair that I have to lather on the sunscreen even for a short walk around the block. I should probably also mention that my boy has an above-average-sized cranium! LOL. I laugh, but it’s so true. According to his doctor, his head circumference is off the charts – like 100th percentile off the charts! I comfort myself by saying that he needs such a big head to hold the giant brain he has…but that still doesn’t take away from the fact that he could almost pass for a bobble-head. (Kidding!…Kinda.)
Aside from the near-half bottle of sunscreen I apply, I’ve found that hats are also a great way to combat the sun’s harsh rays. He recently outgrew his little baseball cap, but I’ve been digging the fisherman’s hat look from Kids Organic for him this summer. Isn’t this one just too cute?
Kids Organic uses 100% certified organic cotton for super soft clothes and natural chemical free dyes (no impact – not “low” impact) for machine washable colors from nature. All garments are sewn in a socially responsible environment in Bali, Indonesia. We love that the hats are really lightweight so he’s not struggling to pull it off every 5 minutes. I honestly don’t even think he realizes that he has it on most of the time. We can play around for hours and he leaves it on the whole time.
Right now Kids Organic is on sale at Totsy.com. Their prices are really affordable, and you’ll be purchasing an environmentally responsible item too! These hats, for instance, regularly retail for $19.50 each, but are on sale for just $10 during their Totsy sale – an awesome deal!!! What’s also special about Totsy is that they will plant a tree in honor of your child when you make your first purchase. Sustainability at its finest, folks!
