  • OF COURSE! and I would DEFF use it everyday you go outside. Watch his eyes, or get a tear free baby kind. Get his scalp, in his ears, neck and feet really well. These are places that get forgotten alot of times. Have fun int he sun adn be safe!

  • See when my son was that little (his first summer) I was terrified to put it on him because every single bottle says "6 months and older" so I didn't use it on him. I just kept him covered up!!

  • our pediatrition said to only use it when my son was 6 months old or older. He said until then keep them out of direct son light. Keep them in the shade and protected.

  • My doctor told me NOT to use sunscreen until he was 6 months old. I just kept him out of the sun for long stretches of time.

  • I didn't. I listened to the back of the bottle and just kept her in the shade or didn't take her out at all. Not saying it will hurt anything... and I'm sure it would be better to use sunscreen before six months then to let them get burned if they are going to be in the sun.
    So like I said, I didn't... but its your kid =]
