Rash Guard
Bodenusa; $48
We live in Florida and are in the pool and at the beach a lot, so serious sun protection is a must. While we slather on sunscreen where necessary, I prefer to cover up as much of my toddler daughter's skin as possible with rash guards that have SPF built right in.

Slipping one on is much less of a hassle than all the spraying and rubbing, and I feel confident that she's really protected from burning. Plus, with all the conflicting news about sunscreen chemicals lately, I feel like the less, the better.

Here are some cute toddler rash guards I've found.

Shark Suit My son had this suit from Boden as a toddler and literally wore it out. It lasted two seasons, so I'd say we got our money's worth. I love the matching striped swim shorts.

Girl Rash Guard

Hannaandersson; $25

Bright Flowers My toddler daughter has a rash guard from Hanna Andersson that was passed down to her by a friend. It's still in great shape, and we wear it all the time. I love the super-bright and fun print on this one.

boy rash guard
Landsend; $16.99

Classic Surfer This blue and green version is classic, just like most of Lands' End gear. Even better, it and a host of other styles are on sale now for as much as 40 percent off.

Turtle Rash Guard
Target; $9.99

Too-Cute Turtles Target also has a nice and affordable line of rash guards. I like this one with colorful turtles, and it's only $9.99.

Do you children wear rash guards?
