Sunburn help!!

I feel terrible! My husband went on a hike today with our 3 month old... We thought she was covered up good but her little chubby cheeks still got burned! They are blistering just really red. What can I do to help her?? I know it's hurting her.

  • At that age I would call the doctor about it and see what they recommend.

  • White vinegar is good for soothing sunburns, and it won't hurt her if she gets any in her mouth. But, I agree, at this age, call the doctor and see what he/she suggests.
