Summer Splash Sponsor Spotlight for BabyBanz

May 14, 2013

Another great sponsor for Summer Splash is Baby Banz! They are sponsoring a pair of baby/kids sunglasses in our giveaway package!



In an ever deteriorating UV climate, Baby Banz is steadfast in its ongoing effort to preserve the sensitive eyes and precious skin of little ones everywhere. Baby Banz is committed to developing children’s UV protective sunglasses, hats, accessories and swimwear that not only protect them from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but are also comfortable, fun to wear and strong enough to last.

Our family is mostly fair-haired and fair-skinned. This means we need protection from the sun more than your average person. Or I suppose we are just more aware because if we aren’t careful we burn, badly. Most people don’t think much about protecting your eyes! Think about it: your eyes age just as the rest of your body, you protect your skin don’t you? It is absolutely true that your eyes can be saved from vision loss later in life by simply wearing sunglasses when outdoors!

Baby Banz sent us a pair of wrap around style sunglasses for the newborn to review. We love the idea of getting him used to wearing them. Most babies don’t like things on their face or head so it is important to get them used to it. I’m hoping this will begin a habit that will be ingrained in his personality. Just like brushing his teeth or combing his hair.

The pair that I requested to review are the Ultimate Banz. I chose these mostly because I like the silicone padding at the bridge of the nose. I want my baby to be protected but I also want him comfortable.



The newborn still is getting used to having them on when we go out but after a few minutes he stops trying to take them off. He started wearing them at just before he turned 3 months old so they were a bit loose at the smallest setting on the band.

The neoprene band is very comfortable for him. It adds some comfort and when his head grows more into it the stretch will keep the glasses from falling down. I also like that the back is wider. The width of the back prevents any indentation or irritation on the back of his head.


These Baby Banz are very well constructed. The durability is a great feature! We have tossed these in the diaper bag several times, he tugs at them some and there are no signs of wear on them.

Overall I would definitely recommend them to any parent! These are fantastic and very important for your child’s eye health!

    It’s best to start protecting your child’s eyes from a very young age so this is an awesome idea. I love the comfy band that holds them in place.

    These would be perfect for my 13 month old son this summer. I’m worried about him going to the beach and getting sand in his eyes and getting blinded by the sun.

    Very cool! Your child’s eyes will be protected and you won’t have to worry about them losing/breaking/or hurting themselves with the glasses.
