Big Sister E has extremely pale skin and, even though hers isn't quite as light, Little Sister B's complexion is far from something I would call dark, too. So, even if either of them were to fight me on being covered in sunscreen (which they don't, probably because they know it's a losing battle), their only other choice would be to stay inside.
But any mom knows that the amount of time spent listening to an impatient, swimsuit-clad child whining as sunscreen is applied to every exposed inch of skin is never pleasant... not to mention having to reapply, constantly check for red shoulders and in general worry about what harmful effects the sun is having on our kids just isn't how we want to spend summertime outdoors.
Fortunately, this year I was introduced to a high quality, convenient way to keep my children safe from the sun's rays while still being comfortable, content and happy thanks to Konfidence USA!
Specializing in premium protective swimwear and buoyancy aids for babies, toddlers, children and adults, Konfidence is a family business that began in the United Kingdom in 1998. For the past 16 years, they have not only been designing, manufacturing and distributing simple, innovative swim products, but have proven why their items are an essential piece of families' water experiences!
While my children are past the age where they need to wear a buoyancy product every time they set foot in the water, when the Child UV T-Shirt and the Child UV Long Sleeve Sunsuit arrived from Konfidence, I knew that the durable construction, great colors and 40+ SPF protection would be perfect for this summer and beyond.
Available in blue or pink in sizes to fit ages 6 months through 10 years, the Child UV T-Shirt and Child UV Long Sleeve Sunsuit are manufactured to make life in the sun easier and safer in only a matter of seconds.
Both items are manufactured using close knit, high UV protection materials (53% Polyester and 47% PBT, Polybutylene Terephthalate) that look and feel great, whether on or off.
I love that these pieces are stretchy and comfortable for my girls to wear, not to mention strong and durable enough to withstand use after use.
Even better, as these are both so soft, light and easy to wear, they have been well-received by both of my kids — and have turned into their swimwear of choice. The Child UV T-Shirt easily slips on and off over Big Sister E's head and Little Sister B can step in and zip up the Child UV Long Sleeve Sunsuit without any issue at all.
The result is that the ¾ length sleeves (and the attached shorts, in the case of the sunsuit) keep away 97% of UV rays, dry quickly and let enough air pass through that both girls stay cool and relaxed while beating the heat!
I don't think that any of us could be happier with the way that these Konfidence products have helped make our outdoor time easier and safer, whether in or out of the water. In the time that we have been using these, both girls have been happy and we have received multiple comments from other moms on how much they like the idea of a sunsuit or UV shirt for their own child.
Retailing for $26.99 for the Child UV T-Shirt and $30.99 for the Child UV Long Sleeve Sunsuit, I have no doubt that these Konfidence items will stay a part of our swimming wardrobe for quite some time to come!
