  • ive used a few different kinds. the one i have right now is aveeno. i think its SPF 50 but either way, all the ones that i use are for babys. it says baby on it. ive got the cream one for his body, and then a stick one for his face so that it doesnt run in his eyes. we were out in the sun swimming for like 4 days straight last weekend and had no problem with it! he didnt get sunburned at all.

  • the best sunscreen you can get is one you make yourself by mixing a tube of zinc oxide with any moisturizer. zinc oxide is the best defense against the suns rays however you do not want to block 100% of the suns rays because rays from the sun are absorbed into your skin and warp bad cholesterol which then creates vitamin D. an spf 15 blocks 96% uv rays and spf 30 blocks 98% uv rays. either one is acceptable
