Babiators Original Aviator Sunglasses

We’ll kick things off with a classic style reimagined for infants. These baby aviator sunglasses are pegged as “awesome shades for awesome kids” and we wholeheartedly agree. They provide 100 percent UVA and UVB protection, are BPA-free and have shatter-resistant lenses. The last is especially important since—let’s face it—they’re going to end up on the floor at one point or another.

Banz Sunglasses in Pink Gingham

We love Banz for its audiologist-approved line of baby headphones (another protective item you should definitely invest in this summer for when you’re out and about in loud settings). The brand, known for its comfortable, stay-on headbands, makes baby sunglasses with straps too. This pair has the sweetest seasonal gingham pattern. Bonus: The baby sunglasses’ lenses can be replaced with prescription ones if your child wears eyeglasses.
