Little Leaves Sun Protective Clothing
My husband graduates this May (YAAY!!) and we’ve been gifted a trip to Southern California to celebrate his graduation. We have a 7-month-old baby girl and we had our first warm day recently and I of course had to get out in the sunshine and take my daughter and dog for a walk. My first thought was ‘hmmm… It’s warm enough to warrant sunblock, but do I put sunblock on a baby?? I have no idea!’
So naturally I scanned the Internet for the answer on how to properly protect my baby on a sunny day. Clearly I’m new at this and this summer will be my first caring for a baby and learning what’s needed to ensure her safety in the rising temperatures. The Little Leaves blog offers some information on the subject of infants and sunblock. With our upcoming trip, I need to be thinking about limiting my daughters sun exposure. This product from Little Leaves couldn’t have come at a better time as the topic of sun protection for my daughter was already on my mind!
About Little Leaves Sun Protective Clothing
Little Leaves offers unique eco-friendly garments for day-to-day use that provides kids and babies protection from UV rays. Drs. Carley and Carlos Gomez-Mead, a pediatrician and dermatologist, are passionate about bringing awareness to parents and protecting their children from sun damage. They started Little Leaves after searching for protective clothes for their kids and finding the choices very limited. The only choices they found were swim clothes, like rash guards and body suits. Any other kind of outdoor playtime was left open to sun exposure due to a lack of UV protective clothing being available.
It’s important to realize we’re constantly being exposed to the effects of the sun. Sun exposure is happening even when we’re simply going out to lunch, taking a walk, or visiting the playground. It’s our job as parents to protect our kids from the harmful rays of the sun during everyday play. Little Leaves makes it easy!
“The materials we create are also ideal for children with eczema, atopic dermatitis, and other sensitive skin conditions. Additionally, we subscribe to the health-conscious attitude, and ensure the play wear is chemical free and colored by natural/non-irritating dyes.” -Dr. Gomez-Mead
Even if you don’t have specific skin protection needs, this product is ideal for everyone!
Main benefits of Little Leaves clothing:
- 50+ UPF
- Moisture wicking
- Odor resistant
- Cooler than traditional fabrics
- More durable than a traditional cotton t-shirt

My experience with Little Leaves
Little Leaves has a handful of designs and colors available for both girls and boys in both shirts and pants. While design choices are limited, the ones available are very cute! The fabric seems like a blend between a soft t-shirt and a rash guard. It has a little bounce or elasticity to the material and I was surprised by the softness of the product.
I’m cautious of the materials my daughter wears because I don’t want any scratchy or irritating materials on her skin and this product definitely passes the test and is soft baby skin approved!
I know she’ll get a ton of use out of this product as the sun is shining and the weather’s growing warmer by the day. We will be excitedly sprinting for the outdoors and enjoying the nicer weather now that winter’s behind us. It’s a win-win for both mother and child as it gives piece of mind to mom’s to know their child is protected from the sun and the child is happy being comfortable in their clothing so they can move about freely. I know my baby girl seemed very comfortable rolling and playing around on our picnic while wearing her Little Leaves shirt!
