We have a beach house. Not that my daughter will be out in the direct sun sunbathing, but if I am holding her on the deck or playing with my son on the beach under an umbrella she may get a little sun. Should I still put sunscreen on her or is she too little?Answer Question

If her skin is exposed yes. If you can keep her covered with light weight/light colored clothing and a hat then that would be better.
Yes, I'm aware of the necessity of vit D exposure for health, but the kind of continuous exposure one get at the beach could cause more harm than good in the case of a sunburn.
I live in south Texas. The only times my children have worn sunblock this summer is at the pool and a picnicÂ where they spent most of the time in the strong sun.
You can get sunblock without chemicals but you will probably have to get it at a vitamin shop or health food store. I've found that Loving Naturals (a "1") is the best price per ounce.
