Have you bought baby sunscreen yet? — The Bump
February 2011 Moms

Have you bought baby sunscreen yet?

Dr. said that he can wear sunscreen but that it should be mineral based.  I had already bought Aveeno baby sunscreen but hadn't used it yet.  She said not to use it because one of the ingredients hadn't been tested much or something along those lines. She recommended 2 brands ...california baby and nutrogena.   Wondering if anyone has used either of these yet?

  • Yup and I use it all the time! We're in FL and I have a 5 year old so we're outside a lot. Dr. said to be sure to test on an arm or a leg a small spot for reaction and Bella does fine. He said def better to wear than not, and we also have her wear a wide brimmed hat. Baby Silk Babysafe towels are my favorite but they're expensive.  I use those or California baby. :)

  • We were told no sunscreen until Mj is 6 months old. Until then we have to keep him the shade/covered up.

    Did they say why? We are going camping next weekend and I plan on keeping Ty in the shade with a sun hat, but I'd still want to put on sun screen as a precaution.

  • There is a difference between sunscreen and sunblock.  Babies under 6 months can't wear sunscreen but sunblock is okay.  We bought Neutrogena Pure and Free for our LO.  There was a really good post on this subject on the Bump awhile back.  Definitely good to read:

  • Thanks for this post - MIL and I were just discussing this today. We don't live near any stores that carry California Baby products, but I can very likely find the Neutrogena product somewhere...

    Since we'll be at a cookout tomorrow for the holiday it's important to me.

  • Our pedi said she we can use it however we should bathe him right after we come in.  She said the lack of research in babies under six months makes her uncomfortable to recommend leaving it on for prolonged periods of time.

    We bought Neutrogena brand but haven't used it yet.

     

    This. Pedi also said no sunscreen, but we are going to Disney for a week and there is no way I'm not putting sunblock on her.

  • We bought California Baby but haven't used it yet as the sun has only come out about 3 times this spring.
