Omicron is raging right now and kids are more at risk than ever. Experts are now saying that cloth masks are not going to cut it when it comes to this new variant. The new recommendation is three-ply surgical masks, N95, KN95 or KF94 masks. N95 in kids sizes are pretty impossible to find, but there are plenty of surgical masks, KN95 or KF94 masks available made just for your little ones. Here are a few that have come highly recommended.
Kimberly-Clark Kid’s Masks
A lot of companies may claim that their face masks are approved by the FDA, but Kimberly-Clark is the ONLY kid’s mask that has currently been approved by the FDA. Now they are VERY hard to come by right now, but keep checking School Nurse Supply, KidStart Supply and Walmart.com for re-stock.
This has been the #1 recommendation I’ve had from friends when it comes to comfort and availability. They have KN95 and three-ply surgical mask options made just for kids. Their adult masks are pretty great too.
These three-ply masks are extremely affordable and come in a variety of colors and designs. At $25 for 50 masks these are great as an every day mask.
Happy Life Kids
If your child hates wearing a mask that sits on their mouth, than these KF94 masks are your best option. They fit snug over your face without constricting your ability to talk.
Kaze is a favorite among celebrities and there is a good reason why. While a little more on the pricey side, they have amazing reviews when it comes to comfort. Plus, they are adjustable which is always good when you have a growing child.
