I baught a second pair of Babiators with the intention that my son will soon grow out of his old 0-2yr pair or break or damage them. John sent us some new lense as my son had dropped them on the concret and where then stepped on. Frames are still going good and always bounce when the 2 yr old no longer needs them right now. Just need to teach him now not to push them back on his face with his banana covered fingers. Im sure banana's not good for the lenses hahahaha
As the mum of a two year old little girl with CHARGE syndrome (Nyla's particular case amongst other minor issues now is she is partially Deaf and has coloboma in both eyes with equal blindspots in her peripheral vision) She's very much your average kid other than that, she takes it all in her stride, We are very lucky to have her! I sometimes found the glorious sunny weather of Brisbane was tricky for us and i was constantly shade hopping for the littlest of journeys, even from the grocery shops to the car seat blocking the sun from her eyes. Nyla's eyes are so sensitive to those bright sunny days she more often than not couldn't open her eyes to see... anything. On beach dates reflective glare from the water would have her face scrunched up and as a mum you feel heart broken for her discomfort. We obviously wore hats to try help matters but we tried LOTS of sunnies from different high street stores and opticians. Their wasn't any helpful range in opticians, they were too big on her face, some not UV protected etc but I knew if i held out I would find the perfect fit for her little button face! I came across the Babiators website... and our life has changed completely! She is happy to leave them on, she see's the benefit of these protective sunnies amongst the rest and for the first time in 2.5 years she is out playing in our backyard all by herself in the sunshine! Our walks don't consist of seeing what way the sun is shining on us anymore... if you are a parent of a special needs kid, the little wins are the AMAZING ones! Keen to get a few more coloured options soon! You guys have changed our everyday... We are very grateful X
Koen (2 mths) loves his new sunnies. We have so many comments on them and people wanting to know where we got them from. I have found them to be excellent quality and they fit well. The delivery was quick and they arrived with a lovely handwritten thank you note. I definitely recommend the purchase.
They are a little to big for my son at the moment as o bought the larger pair for him as he has a very big head. He has stretched the arms out and they have survived
