Do your kids have sunglasses?

When my son was a few months old, my mom got him 2 pairs of sunglasses. They were too big. Now he is 23 months and they fit. He doesn't seem to like them but I just tried putting them on him once. Usually he doesn't like stuff like this unless he puts it on himself.

How important are sunglasses for toddlers?

He loves to be outside and sometimes my eyes can't even take the sunlight so I worry about him.

^thats what I have

Thanks ladies!

If he doesn't like them I don't think its a big deal... Will he wear a hat instead?

 My son has eye problems and has to wear eyeglasses. His new pair are going to be transition lenses because his optometrist said it is important to protect the eyes from the sun especillaly because he does have some eye problems. If you can try and get him to wear them or a hat at least if he will not wear the sunglasses. Maybe if you make it like a game for him to wear them it might make it easier to get him to wear them. GOOD LUCK.

Not usually. Right after I posted this he took them and put them on but refused to put them on his eyes. lol Hats are hit or miss. If he doesn't like them he will scream if we get the hat near him. If he likes it then he'll put it on.

I don't know anything about toddler vision being affected by relatively bright sunlight so I didn't know if I should worry. First child so sometimes I think I worry too much.

not anymore.  he broke them.  he calls them his "eyes"


"Life is too short to wake up with regrets.  So love the people who treat you right.  Forget the ones who don't.  Believe everything happens for a reason.  If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.  If it changes your life, let it.  Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

I have to wear glasses. I guess I just worry he will develop eye problems.
