Hi, Mommas! For those of you who have taken your LO's into the sun for more than short little walks, what have you done to protect baby? My family is going beach camping next week for Spring Break, and I'm kind of panicking at how I'm going to sit on the beach with my baby and keep her skin adequately protected. I know the recommendation is not to put sunscreen on babies until they're older than six months, so that option is out. I plan on sitting under an umbrella the entire time, but sun is still able to get through those things. I'm also going to buy her a hat and sunglasses, and try to keep her as covered as possible. But my fear is that she'll become overheated. It's been unseasonably warm in SoCal. So, what have you all done?? Part of me wants to just skip the trip...but then the other part of me is looking forward to the vacation! This is a family tradition, and I would hate to miss out on it. My sisters have all taken their babies (from the time they were newborns) and done fine. But they also used sunscreen, and I don't really want to. But I'm the worrier in the family. Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated!
