Do you rub sunblock on your baby's head?

Is it safe to? My LO doesn't have enough hair to protect his head and won't keep a hat on.

  • how old is your LO any child under 6 months of age doesn't need it the chemicals in it are bad even with baby sunblock and really shouldn't have much of it at all till least 9 months. but then yes id rub a little on her head if past that age otherwise id avoid the sun as much as possible -nurse here :)
