  • I use Coppertone Water Babies for my kiddos.
    It depends on your specific child. My pedi told me to rub a small amount on his ankle and wait a few hours. If he has a reaction then you know that's not the product to use.

  • Before you use sunscreen use: a hat, loose clothing, hat, shade. Try to avoid the sun at peak ours between 10 and 2. Do this before using any sunscreen

  • i think any sunscreen that says its gentle enough for babies is gonna be ok. just dont use it every second of every day or get it in their eyes
