I found some at a chemist, and at Big W. My DD 9.5 months won't actually wear them, she just pulls them off. I think there is also a type that is more like a swimming goggle, with a headband, so they can't be pulled off. I think I've seen them at a baby store.

My 6 month old has a pair of Pumpkin Patch glasses that are similar in style to a swimming goggle. He wears them for a while but gets sick of them after a bit. One of the girls at mothers group has a pair of 'Baby Banz' sunglasses that her little one seems to like!

I brought my DD a pair of 'Baby Banz' when she was 6 months old. Even with the headband she would still pull them off but would generally leave them on when it was bright. You can buy them at chemists and their online store.

The Cancer Council shops has them; both the goggle style and standard ones. DD1 wouldn't keep the goggle ones on at all but would mostly keep normal sunglasses on from around 16 months. DD2 is 17 months and just starting to wear normal sunglasses without immediately removing them.

Another vote for baby banz. DS has always worn his happily (since he was about 3 months old).
We have these ones - a bit bigger for extra coverage.

We have Baby Banz, but we have screaming matches trying keep them on.

Another vote for baby banz. We bought ours from the local optometrist.
