  • Our 19 month old was the same way, we would take her outdoors and she would get a little rosie cheeks and get like a red rash on her little face and arms. We would just have to wipe her with her wipes frequently or take a wet wash rag in a plastic baggie and wipe her down when going out places. Then when we got home we would give her a little bath or rise off and change her outfit or put on pj's. She was just very sensitive to grass, trees, the outdoors in general. Keep your baby cool and hydrated and wipe her down frequently.

  • maybe try sun screen and if it happens still, again take her in to see a doctor. She way just have sensitive skin but you never know there is a disease that people have allergic reactions to the sun, I hope that's not the case. GL
