beach

We are thinking about going to the beach. Have any of you been yet? What did you bring? What did the little one wear? Opinions on sunblock?

Re: beach

  • Haven't been to the beach yet, but our pediatrician gave us the okay for sunscreen. Bought some California Baby.

  • I would get one of the baby sunblock tents. They are great! I also brought a bounce seat to put him in while in the tent to avoid tons of sand.
  • I asked my dermatologist about infants and sunblock. She said do not use it before 6 mos. it can be dangerous for them because of the chemicals. She said no direct sun. Get a big umbrella and let baby stay under it.

    Even if LO is under an umbrella they can still get burned since sun rays reflect off the sand and water.

    OP- I recommend a good hat and a long sleeved rash guard. Our pedi said if the sun is unavoidable she would rather a little California Baby then a burn. We put a little on DS2's legs and face when we go out in the sun (since he has a long sleeved rash guard and a big floppy hat on)
