Kokopax review for Sun Cancer Awareness Month

How many of you know that May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month? In honor of this, I would like to introduce you to Kokopax. Kokopax is a new company that makes some of the cutest sun hats, totes and baby carriers that I have ever seen!

Sun hats are important for babies because they need to have that extra protection in the sun. Dexter never saw the light of day last year because I didn't want him exposed to the sun's rays. I have read numerous reports that mention that a child receives 50%-80% of their lifetime exposure to the sun before age 18! I can believe it. Well, it is up to us parents to make sure that we teach our children how they can safely play in the sun all while being protected.

I was lucky enough to be sent a sunhat for Dexter and I think he looks adorable in it. It features a thin, under-chin strap that has a velcro closure (to help it stay on). I have the hardest time getting Dexter to keep a hat on so I took a picture of myself (wearing the hat). D was so excited to see the hat on me that he grabbed it and kept trying to put it on himself. Here is a photo array of this excursion!

Keep your eyes peeled for more Skin Cancer Awareness reviews this month.
