    Sun Screen Suggestions

    Advertisements
    What is your favorite sunscreen to use on your kids (or that you used on your kids when they were infants).

    Finally having weather that makes it worth while to be outside and need to make sure DS is covered!

    Need water/sweat proof, ideally wont burn/irritate his eyes if it gets in them on accident, and at least 35SPF. I plan on getting both a stick and a rub on cream.

    For a while, we used BabyGanics. It worked great, we just didn't want the fuss of slopping it on anymore-- we use spray sunscreen now (I think it's Coppertone Kids).

    We use Coppertone Water Babies spray. It's SPF 50, waterproof, and smells great (I think). I just spray a bunch in my hand, and rub it in! It absorbs really quickly too, so that's nice.

    I use Coppertone Baby spf 50 cream. I fucking hate spray sunscreen. But it's water & sweat resistant.

    Either California Baby or Burt's Bees for us, whichever I can find locally. I'm really sensitive to sunscreens so we only use my safe brands for him, too.

    Until YDD was a year, we used all natural sunscreen on her we got from a Health Food store. Can't remember the brands. Now I use a kid's tear free one. I can't remember the name.
