My First Shades

It's officially summer!!!! Time to spend more time outside. Mommy gets her cute little sunglasses out....but what about the little ones? I myself have 2 toddlers, and keeping sunglasses on them is.....impossible. I dont want my little ones to have to sheild their eyes from the sun, or have to close their eyes to keep the sun out....when I came across My First Shades I wanted to try them! I was super happy when they sent me some to test out for myself. Jeffery got a cute little pair of red ones (matches his Cars swimming trunks...along with other stuff I was sent *hint hint* keep checking back for more sun stuff!!!) Jaylin got a cute little pair of pink (perfect for my little princess) I put them on, and was amazed at how great they looked!!! Yea they can still get them off, but not as easy. Jaylin likes to pull hers down, Jeffery pulls his up and off sometimes.

Photobucket

My First Shades are made of DURABLE materials (PERFECT for baby/toddlers) The headband is adjustable!!!!! How cool is that??? My kids are growing like weeds and I think they will be able to wear their My First Shades for a couple of years actually!!! (at least this summer and next!!!)

Photobucket


I was reading on My First Shades site how 82% of parents make their kids wear sunscreen (thats me!!!) but only 32% of parents encourage their kids to wear sunglasses!!! I learned a few things for My First Shades site...such as: Not surprisingly, fewer people understand the sun’s harmful effects. Although the sun is our main source of Vitamin D, UV lights can cause “photokeratitis”. Just like sunburn on skin, photokeratitis is sunburn of the eye. Extended exposure to the sun during childhood can lead to impaired vision, cataracts, and even blindness. I for one didn't know about this!! I have started putting My First Shades on my kids whenever we go out and its sunny out!

Photobucket

Being that I have to wear glasses, its a possibility my kids might have to too, I hate that I can't find cute sunglasses for myself that can be Rx....My First Shades are Rx capable, meaning a vision care professional can fit all styles of My First Shades sunglasses with prescription lenses!! How cool is that???

My First Shades are waterproof, rustproof, no pointy temple arms or metal hinges, and they are fun to wear!!! My First Shades are wrap style design for a close, comfortable fit that minimizes peripheral light.

I have to tell you about a great experience I had with My First Shades. I was going out with Jaylin one evening and we went around a curve and she just started screaming, I look back and the sun was directly in her eyes! I immediatly pulled over and got My First Shades out (I had just gotten them and they were sitll in the box in the back of my vehicle) and put them on her. Started driving again (after a nice gentleman stopped to make sure I was ok lol) and the sun was still on her, but she was no longer screaming!!! My First Shades WORKED!!!! Now we don't leave home without them!!!

Jeffery likes to put his My First Shades on and say "COOL DUDE!!" and do a thumbs up! He knows he looks cool in them!!!
