Protecting Baby's Skin from the sun

I like the sunshine, let me clarify, I LOVE the sunshine but I don't like getting sunburnt. Here are some useful reminders for all of you.  Remember even for babies 6 months and younger the American Academy of Pediatrics now states that sunscreen is probably (ugh!) safe to use on younger children, especially if you just use it on small areas of your baby's skin that is exposed to the sun and not protected by clothing, such as the infant's hands and face.

Here is a link to some of the guidelines recommended by Healthy

Of course there are some great products available at Whole foods and even CVS that are organic and more gentle for baby's skin.  Here is one that I would recommend and it isn't going to break the bank.

Earth's Best Sun Block SPF30 70% Organic and Hypo-Allergenic Earths Best Organic protects baby's delicate skin from the sun with this SPF 30+ Chemical Free, Fragrance Free Sunblock created by JASON. This hypo-allergenic sun block is extra mild and safe for use on babies and sensitive adults. Enriched with Beta Glucan, Oat Oil and Lavender Extract this sun block not only protects but soothes.
