  • Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion SPF 45 - a good sunscreen, plus has both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

    If your child has really sensitive skin and gets a rash with sunscreen, consider using a pure sunblock, such as Blue Lizard Australian Suncream SPF 30 Sensitive or Neutrogena Sunblock Lotion Sensitive Skin SPF 30.
    Or check out this site for organic and natural sunscreen and other products.

    Banana Boat Baby Tear Free UVA & UVB Sunblock Lotion SPF 50 - a sunscreen with the sunblock titanium dioxide

    Banana Boat Kids Quick Blok SPF 35 - a sunscreen with avobenzone

    # Hawaiian Tropic Kids Sunblock 60+ SPF - a sunscreen with avobenzone
