The beginnings of something extraordinary. Protect-a-Bub’s roots flow “down under” to Australia where the incidence of skin cancer is the highest in the world. Nine years ago, after Karen Clark-Dickson’s unsuccessful search for a sunshade to adequately protect her baby from the harsh Australian sun, she designed her own. Following countless requests from other parents “to make just one more,” Karen established Protect-a-Bub.In February 2003, while preparing for a Florida vacation with her new baby Sydney, New Yorker Rachel Blakeman’s search for a sunshade led her to purchase a Protect-a-Bub Sunshade from Karen’s Australian website. Rachel called Karen, encouraging her to sell the sunshades in the United States. Karen was enthusiastic, but needed a partner to expand. Without hesitation, Karen and Rachel joined forces to bring Protect-a-Bub Sunshades worldwide.These safety conscious moms improved upon existing products and continue to invent new ones. As a former corporate lawyer, Rachel’s business savvy complemented Karen’s creative spirit.
As a single mom of a very special preemie i found Protect a bub products to be amazing. I was hooked from the first time i used my Bunny Wrap. The Snuggle Bub has to be my all time favorite. It is unbelievably soft and so comfortable and also easy to use! I am honored to be apart of a company that is devoted to arming parents with items that will help keep their children safe from the elements year round.
Protect A Bub Weather it all Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall
If you and your family enjoy the outdoors, the best protection from the sun's rays is to use all of the following: hats, sunglasses, sun block, sunshades, 50+ UPF rated clothing and 50+ UPF rated swimsuits like those brightly colored swimsuits offered by Protect-a-Bub.
Babies should be completely shaded from the sun at all times during the first six months of life or until your pediatrician indicates it is safe for them to wear sun block. Using sunshades such as the Protect-a-Bub sunshade or the Protect-a-Bub Deluxe 3-in-1 allows baby to enjoy the great outdoors while being shielded from UV rays.
Keep baby protected during peak UV times when the sun is at its highest and strongest: between 10am- 4pm.
Start teaching your children sun safe habits from an early age. Always require them to wear hats, sunglasses and a 50+ UPF rated shirt when swimming. Apply sun block each morning. Sun blocks take up to 20 minutes to become active on the skin.
